    Do you have to pay SOE to even mention Potbs on their home page?
    haven't seen a word in months....

        Have you an idea about how many it will cost for hardcoregamer to stay IG?
        For example:
        - playing potbs 40h/week
        - Doing all pb
        - Loosing 10 to 20 refits ships/.lsb ship/weeK,

        Is it not possible to just continue to pay the same amount and still have free plau as before?

            How's multiple accounts treated in this F2P thing? In other words, what will prevent everyone having 50,100, 1000 structure lots?

              it can kill the game harder than the loss of 1.2 rates ...

              Donate system to no good does not. Sale overpower fits will kill the balance and the players will go away (

                  Good point, Mutli-boxing will have to stopped before it gets out of control, the station launcher can check for multi-clients but it will probably need more than that as it could potentially break the game - I feel FP2 is definately the best way forward so the Potbs is played the way it was always meant to be.

                    Fundamentally, the answer is that you can do all this without paying us anything. Microtransactions are a layer on top of the game, they're not replacing the economy as it is.

                      Yes. Which again, is why we're not doing that.

                        It's important to mention these sorts of things in these announcements.

                        But you did a great job of hitting the 'Panic' button for everyone awake atm!

                          i wonder, will they make it so anyone who wants to pvp have to pay? or will it be anyone who wants to be an econ mogul will have to pay for each lot?


                          either way, you loose a large portion of your players. .


                          i am also very worried.

                          i had such high hopes for p and p too. . .

                            I think F2P could work out quite well bacause as it is right now charging $15 per month is just not working.

                              I originally had a paragraph that talked about this, but then we decided it was better addressed by the dev log tomorrow, and I was stealing his material. Phoo.

                                That's already happened, f2p will bring a whole lot back plus a whole lot more! with the current time players have to spend doing econ to recover from loss it's long over-due, no amount of advertising would have done it, this will imo.
                                Yeah 24 v 24 PB's will be routine.
