You guys are ok with paying $3 a character slot on top of $10 a month?

Yes my fault. I didnt even begin to fathom this game was like this.

You guys are ok with being absolutely ripped off? They dont even include a single character slot for free!

I wish i would have known this prior. I wouldnt have bought the game just in spite of this.

its a "premium" mmo, none of them are free. dont look at it as 10$ + 3$. just say its 13$ a month, which is less than many other mmo's of the same caliber.

If you can't afford $13 a month, than don't you think you should be working on getting a better job and your life straight before you worry about playing an MMO or any video game for that matter? ^^

What he said.

I found it a little strange too, but paying $13 a month is really not bad for an MMO.
When it comes to other characters however, I've usually never had more than two or three characters on an MMO at any given time anyway (or, at least, active characters). And in this game, you don't have to pick one class and stick to it forever, get bored, and make a new character. You can play as anything, whenever you want. Aside from what your character physically looks like, everything else can change.

In fact, they might even add in an NPC or something that can change your character's hair and such.

It's not a bad price to start with, but you don't get any other characters for free. And I can see a lot of people paying for extra retainers when they run out of the meager inventory space. Probably intended...

The price seems fine to me, I really don't understand why they didnt make the price $13 and just be an inclusive charge with 1 character slot instead of making both seperate when you need both. I can only think it's a PR stunt to appear cheaper than it actually is. If that is the case then yes it's a ripoff to anyone getting the wrong impression.
