About the trial version


Guest Yuppi

Recommended Posts

So my question is for everyone that will play classic.
Do you believe anyone will actually use the trial version (is it pointless to be in the game)? If yes they will, what % of the userbase?
Do you believe it is manageable to play with those restrictions (50%exp, no kinah/ap, bad drop)?
And the last question, do you think only bots will use the trial to farm (even with the drop restriction)?

• I believe a trial version in any online game is a good way for people to try it before purchasing anything.
• I think trial version should be restricted to max level 9 with the inability to get your subclass to prevent abusers from reaching warehouse manager and trade broker in Sanctum/Pandaemonium/Verteron/Altgard.
• Free hour or not, trading, private shop, broker, gathering/crafting experience should be restricted, or better said, removed altogether for free trial. FFXIV and WoW prevent free trial users from doing that. An hour a day is more than enough for people to find loopholes and abuse that feature, so yes, there will be bots, and it's not going to be pretty.
• Limit kinah gain to around 5k-10k for free trial at all times, since there's no need for free trial users to have more.
• I'm certain there will be people who would like to try classic first, specially people who never got a chance to play older version of Aion (pre 6.0) since the current version of Live server is a cesspool of p2w garbage that's equivalent to mobile gacha games.

Interesting, thank you for your answer. Also a question, do you believe there will be people ONLY playing f2p (not bots, actual players)?

It depends. If they put more restrictions on the free trial (like I mentioned earlier, inability to get your subclass), then that seems rather unlikely. If things remain as they are now, to some 1 hour may seem more than enough if they have limited time to play games, or perhaps there might be someone who will still try to play through the limitations to progress.

Since 1.5 patch in KR people say u can't pick up quest items from mobs without sub, which was the last hit into classic f2p mode's head.

Not much different than Prestige pack quests which you can't take or hand in if your pack expires. Sounds like a good move.

That is fine, but we are starting with 1.0 (or was it 1.2?), which means we won't be getting that feature now. NCWest isn't the type to listen to player base, and they should if they want success.

I doubt anyone can do it, maybe someone could end up logging in and doing killing quests to level and later on pay for subscription. It is good to be able to log without paying for any reason, but a person who wants to play classic won't be able to do so free of charge even with 1 hour per day.

There will always be other people that play 10 hours per day and that person would be playing against them or will have to play with them for instances.

So what you are saying is the trial version is not good enough for classic to have f2p base? You think it should be changed in any way (or removed)?

You can still level up some lvl30 chars during free week, get them casual gear, being still better than what questing people are using, and gank lowbies for absolutely free as much as you wish. 

I heard about this free week but idk anything about it? I read somewhere that first week of release is going to be free, is that the one? Also true 7 days is enough to gain enough levels and gear for low lvl pvp

Yes, if you think about it that 1 hour per day isn't really playing. I doubt anyone can enjoy the game like this. I was going to make a suggestion but there is no suggestion section here. So I'll think about it and elaborate in a separate post.

I'm opposed to any trial version unless we can get past that blocking players from the forums that don't pay is unethical and I don't think that will happen. Once again, bots are an issue and if you limit the free trial a lot, it really isn't much of trial. You can pay the subscription and chargeback if you don't like.
