$15 a month might seem expensive when you get less than 15 hours of gameplay a month, which allegedly the case here.


15 hours gameplay for $15, i can complete call of duty in like 5-6 hours and that costs $60


Well games like COD also comes with unlimited multi player if you are into that. The shelf price of a game is for the total package after all, not just the part you want to take out of it...


yeah if you have xboxlive or psn account which costs extra even then you have limited amount of maps unless they release a few extra maps for additional costs


Or you could game on a PC. The value is still there anyway. Clocking 60 hours on multiplayer game is not really a stretch imo. If you don't like the game well it's a bad purchase like any other purchase could be.

I've spent $60 on 10 hour games. these days I've mostly just stopped buying games, although a steam sale catches me every now and then.


So much truth. I get a lot of miles out of my Eve sub.

With these days passes, you obviously also only train skills for the time that you have an active subscription, right?

My ridicule, heavy criticism and general pale outlook about your or CCP's ideas is nothing but an encouragement to prove me wrong. Give it a try.

No, not even if all your industry, pi and other passive forms of income were paused while you are not subbed.
Month long subs give you incentive to log in and play, and get your moneys worth.

Ages ago the skill system and subs were abused. You could sub, skill up, and at the end of the sub set a reeeeally long skill and unsub. Your sp would continue to be applied to your long skill and you could re sub and find you have a skill you did not pay a sub for.

Time to do the same for industry, and markets for that matter.

Use the force without consent and the court wont acquit you even if you are a card carryin', robe wearin' Jedi.
