The real problem that has arisen, is that there are essentially 2 sub prices, one for the fools (Myself included) that gave SE money in return for their failure, and one for the ones that had the actual sense of saying "**** no SE! I am out until you deliver the goods" at best SE should offer the legacy payment offer, in a yearly subscription, if you buy a year subscription within the first month of FFXIV, you get the reduced fee forever, that way they appease both camps, since not everybody will pay a years worth of subs, it will still remain "Unique" and every body got a real chance at it.


See, I have no problem with SE offering discounts for long term subscriptions. Even ZAM does that.


I do not have a problem either, i think it would be a smart move from SE, i understand some legacy players not all would be upset, because let's be real, there are some legacy players, that feel entitled, and want to be special snow flakes, but if SE offers a reduced fee for a yearly subscription, not everybody is gonna be able to afford it, or think is a good deal for them, but they still offered it for those that for X or Y reason could not make the 3 month commitment, because they where either not up to date with current news on the game, or did not think the game was worth their money at the time, in my opinion is a win/win for every party involved, legacy keep their snow flake status, SE gets an increased in revenue and in the same hand, shuts everybody up about legacy.

Suddenly I have flashbacks from Who Framed Rodger Rabbit.

Technically they said "Hey we will and can pay for the development of this game, BUT hey if you gives us your moneys we will make you special snowflakes"

Now if they had not asked for money, and made those who still played 1.0 until shut down legacy players, then SE made you special snowflakes.

Most people who stuck around would have paid anyway. The game had been vastly improved by that point. The Legacy program had nothing to do with it.

On the other hand, those who didn't stick around not only hated the game, but couldn't even be convinced to play with the incentive of a lifetime discount.

Considering it's the latter group doing all the complaining, it seems THEY are the ones who are dying to be unique little snowflakes!

Too bad, so sad. Maybe eventually, SE will offer another chance at a discount.
