I know its probably too early to get info on payment options, but i do hope that they come out with time cards to go along with the option to use a credit card... Unlike how it was/is for FFXI...



If that has been brought up before, sorry.

I do think this would be a good idea. It opens up chances for people who don't necessarily have access to credit cards for what ever reason.

I remember reading that instead of paying once a month, that they would take payment in 30day increments. Makes me a bit hesitant....

Tanaka said that they were "considering" that option, so it's not set in stone yet, just like anything else. Personally, I think that would be great, as you would be paying for the time you actually play, instead of paying once a month no matter if you play or not.

You're till paying once a month, this just fixes the problem or paying for a month when you only reactivated 3 days before the end of the month.

If we pay for 30 days it would also mean everyone would be billed on different dates so that would also give options of free days if we get server downtime?
Not that it really matters to me but just small things that sometimes help to keep the crowd peaceful.

I wouldn't mind if they keep credit card but I do hope they work with different valuta as it is now it is cheaper to get the game from US so you can pay in dollars instead of paying the same amount in euros.

30 Day payments are way better than the way FFXI does it now. As it is now, if you activate on the 25th of a month, you get charged the full fee for the month even though you only played for 5-6 days. Also, I would love if they had prepaid game cards and hopefully you'll be able to remove your CC info when you cancel your account this time around too.

I just hope they learn how to convert money values.

Because, for the **** ****, NO, 12$ ARE NOT 12€ .-.

As long they don't give out how payments are in europe or us I think i don't start ordering an EU copy.

Wonder if they will consider a freee to play model for the 'basic' game like DDO is doing? http://news.softpedia.com/news/Dungeons-and-Dragons-Online-Going-Free-to-Play-113894.shtml

I have no idea how this is even legal. But I suppose we agree to it somewhere in that contract no one reads...

As long as they keep the more diverse payments like Switch Solo ELV and Cartebleu(sp?!) I'll be happy, but that's probably because I'm not from America.

Paypal would seem like the obvious option for reaching a broader audience, and yeah top up cards would be nice. I don't know for sure but isn't this type of system already set up in Japan (although a little more obscure?)

I would have to say part of runescapes p2p service was so successfully because there literally wasn't a reason not to. They had every method possible, even using your mobile phone was an option. It is a big part in the success of a game really
