    I was really, really hoping that Open Beta was going to start on the 9th, and would last longer. Having to wait another week is going to be rather annoying.

    Still, I am looking forward to this quite a lot.

    I woke up for the letter this morning and then went right back to bed after for a couple more hours of sleep. :)
    I was really hoping for the 9th too, but it's been a 3 year wait. Guess i can survive another couple of weeks.

    Umm... so it's only 12.99 for 180 days?

    More likely to be a six-monthly payment of $77.94, which works out to $12.99/month.

    I would have to assume you are correct.

    Ugh I really can't bring myself to pay for a subscription for this.... everything in my being tells me don't do it. Maybe I'll see how the reviews go after it releases.

    The way i like to look at it, it's $30 for the game (PC copy) which includes a free month, then you'd have to pay for 3 months just to match the price of a regular full price title, so really, you could play for 4 months before you ever paid a penny more than a normal game...

    of course that doesn't help the whole part where you end up continuing to pay because now you're 'invested' .. but..
    and hey, the $30 purchase part is free for everyone who already owns a copy from 1.0 :D

    Indeed, I am in the same boat. Good game and I enjoyed myself when I played it for a bit but I don't know if its worth the subscription.

    I don't know of many games where you can pay that amount of money and get six months out of it.
