It's a $60 entry fee to play Wildstar, and even then they'll only give you one month to play, unless you pay for subs (Which personally, I hate and will never do). When it comes to paying for games as an Australian player (So even then I'll probably get charged $80AU for a digital copy of Wildstar), games are ridiculously over priced, so there are more things I consider before paying. My main concern with Wildstar's business model is that there's no longevity with my purchase. If I play Wildstar for 1 month and am unable to pay for CREDD gametime, I feel I would have just wasted $60. Another concern I have is that if I do buy 1 month CREDD gametime, but don't use it and quit for 2 months, it seems I'll have to pay for subs be able to log back on to use the CREDD if I want to revisit. To me, it seems like another money grab. I wouldn't have mind if they had at least given you game time equivalent to the amount you spent just being able to start playing, but only 1 month for $60 feels more than excessive. There are plenty of discussions about how CREDD won't guarantee you free playing time (Or at the very least, any form of consistency in the amount of time you would have to play to get 1 months game time), so I won't consider it as a means to play the game for free. Even then, it's not free to play - you have to spend $60 to just start playing the damn thing. Putting monetary value on time for games feels awfully restrictive to me. I feel as though I have to use the time I have lest it goes to waste. The $60 entry fee to playing Wildstar just compounds this feeling even more. I can pay $60 once and get months worth of entertainment on the right type of game (Eg, Company of Heroes 2 and Witcher 2 I've had a blast playing). Better yet, I can revisit those games after I've had a break from them and I wouldn't have had to pay another cent. Same goes with well built free to play games. I've played League of Legends on and off for 3 years and I've spent around $50-60 on micro-transactions. They've provided great value for the money I've spent on them. From what I've seen at this stage, I might not even buy Wildstar with the business model they've presented thus far. The game had better be damn good if it's going to justify a $60 starting point and then a minimum of $15 per month after the first month. I know I'm speaking as a minority here, as I'm guessing most of the people on this forum have come from WoW or something similar. But hey, what are your thoughts? TLDR; $60 for 1 months worth of guaranteed time before paying a minimum of $15 per month (CREDD is by nature, inconsistent, so it won't be considered for absolute amounts to be paid)? I don't see good value in that. What do you guys think?
