I thought this was an amusing little post from the beta forums, so figured I'd post here for those that haven't seen it or can't access the forums. It was written by xwmstormx and the original can be found here.

Quote:
Since this weekend’s beta is over I figured thought I would write this up to help some people fund their FFXIV future! Also, I wanted to at least attempt something helpful for a change. You know, give back to this loving community.

Let us start with the cost of playing FFXIV and break it down a bit.
$12.99 Per 30 days = 43.3 cents per day = 1.8041666666667 Cents per hour. If someone loves the game and wants to play it for the entertainment that it provides then they need to come up with that and here are some ways to do it!

Mowing Lawns:
Get out that mower and find 2 homes that will let you do it for $8.00 each.
- Time Spent: Worked 1-3hrs
- Earnings: $16.00
- How to spend: $12.99 goes to FFXIV | $3.01 to replace the gas used.

Begging:

http://oi39.tinypic.com/67i0d4.jpg

I will stop there. Obviously these are just some of the ways anyone could make extra money to play FFXIV every month with very little effort. Unfortunately, a lot of people are simply freeloaders. For those people there is no help for them as they refuse to take the first step toward helping themselves.

Hopefully this will give people an idea on how to make some cash to pay that whopping $12.99per month.
Good day to you all and may the Schwartz be with you.


Some good ideas here for those on a budget, and really shows how easy it is to pay for the sub cost while not having to spend a lot of time. Heck, most of these are even low-balled. You could probably mow 1 decent sized lawn and make 15 bucks. Feel free to add your own ideas!

I could work a 12 hr day at work. The time and a half that I'll get paid for those 4 hours (minus taxes) would cover my sub for 6 or 7 months. I can work 2 12 hr days this week and cover my sub for a year. I don't need to, but the option is there and very easy to do. 2 12 hr days a year--that's a cakewalk. This is also why the sub model has never bothered me...I just don't get the uproar over it.

The only time I see a P2P model annoying is when the product itself isn't worth the continuing expense, ie. the company is not dedicating their resources to keep the game healthy and growing. Otherwise I don't see a problem with P2P, we all know the pitfalls of "F"2P, and for less than the cost of a decent delivered pizza you have a game for a month with P2P.

In general people like to complain. They want to get something for nothing (even if they're going to get raked over the coals otherwise). They want the perception that they're in control. The F2P model is as much an affront to a gamer's intelligence as anything, most of us know what they're doing. Some of us let them do it, but some are blind and get caught hook/line/sinker. The latter group is why F2P has been successful.

Regardless, I like the above list--not because it shows how to pay for FFXIV, but that is actually may get a couple people thinking about how to start doing things on their own.

While playing the game, the money I spend on social activities drops, so I use that money and my gas and food money for the amount of the game.

I agree with this very much. I actually save money while subbed and playing because I'm not out wining and dining as much. I have already warned my girlfriend about what's to come with FFXIV because she was not around when I played XI. I promised her that I will not completely abandon the relationship, I have needs.

Was very happy to see this on here.

Seriously, anyone who legitimately has trouble coming up with $13/month should check this out. You can nickel and dime your way to $13/month in no time.

Made my Day, Good list.

My only response to the Subscription whining threads on the FFXI forum was a breakdown of my income from the '80s (Remember $0.80 a gallon gas? )

Start with a push reel mower, $5 no frills mows, 8 semi regular customers (the kind who mow every 2-3 weeks) $20-80+ a week.

2 weeks of that buys a used Gas mower, cutting the work time in half, Paid for my NES, My Genesis, My Sega CD, Games, Sodas, Food I like, Books, movies, Music...

Before that, I bargained with the lazier of my neighbors, Took back their cans, they get half the money back. If you can pull a Radio-Flyer wagon, and make the walls higher with cardboard, there is money to be made out there. (unless you're in a state with no bottle-deposit)

Got a real job and I moved out of my folks house within weeks of turning 18.

Sometimes I swear.... some kids look at pulling yourself up by your bootstraps as an Obscene act

You could also cut back on luxury activities:

Go to Starbucks 2 times less in a month.
Order 1 less pizza a month.
Buy 1 less 12 pack of beer a month.
Make your lunch instead of going out for 1 week.

Really easy. It's a game sub, not a car payment.

I read that post last week and though that it should have been named "Part time job ideas for teenagers". They seemed to have added more serious ways of making cash, but when i read it they were pretty basic "summer jobs". Although I might have to skim through it again and see if I can find anything that might be worthwhile for some supplemental income.

But I love my new car. ;)

Edit: this doesn't mean I don't have the scratch for the game. I just saw someone say car payment. Sore subject, wanted to avoid one for a couple more years, but a tree had a different idea.

You two someday may be able to get married in game (well they did do that in FF11, too cute).

Also, movies: I rent my movies from the library. I have blu-ray Argo right now. Library lets you rent it for a week.

Remember to be patient with your non-player partner, friends, family. They will never understand the total immersion
into the game, nor give a crap about your game accomplishments. ; ; ;

Cheers!

Here's my game accomplishment: http://na.beta.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/2814462/

On the other hand, wouldn't mind if my car payment was $13/month... I could get behind that.

The biggest way to make money to pay for the sub that I haven't really heard yet is actually playing the game. I know I'm not the only one that refrains from playing much else when I have an MMO to be addicted to. I believe that playing an MMO prevents a lot of people from buying other games that come out. Even if you want to play the title you can wait for it to go on sale or buy it a month or two later used. Oh how I love Steam.

NICE!!!

I'm getting a Scion FR-S (in red, of course), and I'm totally stoked! Less than two more weeks until I pick it up...

Back on the topic of making $$ for monthly fees, how about a garage sale? And, at your garage sale, hand out flyers for your cheap lawn mowing business. Sell lemonade, too. Better yet, cook pancakes for the people who show up at the crack of dawn (people who still live with their parents can probably mooch the cookies supplies for free).

When I used to be a poor newspaper reporter, once I responded to a Craigslist gig to dig holes at a construction site. It was a solid morning of good labor, and I made like $200. Boom. That's more than a year of monthly fees right there.

Oh, here's another idea for paying that monthly fee for XIV....

If you just started dating, consider an outdoor picnic. She'll think it's romantic, AND you save money!

If you've been dating someone for a long time, and you're thinking of getting married, don't do it!

And if she insists, get married in Vegas. Just don't gamble while you're there.

If you've been married for a long time, and plan on getting a divorce. Don't do it!

Between lawyer fees, PI fees, having to pay for everything for my ex-wife during the divorce, child support, and then my bills I was barely making it month to month during my divorce. Now though, I realize how much money I actually bring home and it's nice! Never again will I let a significant other "take care of the bills".

Not that I was worried about my marriage, but you just preemptively paid for all of my MMORPG fees for the rest of my life!

This thread turned hilarious. I'm glad it was kept light-hearted... and somehow became the eharmony of the ZAM forums. Smiley: laugh

Easiest way is to just date a divorcee 10-15 years older than you. (assuming they have a decent job). Cut that down to 5 years if your good-looking (you know who you are).

There is a downside: in the last 11 months my GF has cooked exactly 3 times...and twice was actually baking, which I don't do.
