    Lol, in theory but not reality. That would mean at least 200k Vips (you did say millions). There is not a chance that this game has that many subs.

    If a thousand people are paying $10 a month - That's only 10,000 dollars.

    You'd need a Hundred Thousand People paying $10 a month to get 1 million dollars!

    You said Millions a month!

    No! Just no!

    Oh I don't disagree with that perspective, it was just not the way things were discussed and pitched on the forums and in threads with the developers and game people back when the game was being converted from just the subscription mode. I had multiple subscriptions from shortly after we started in 2006. Based on the information given back then, I keep one as VIP (since it appeared we would get "everything" with VIP) and let the other one lapse to premium, and intended to only get content that was "good" or when I needed to dual box if no other guildies were around or interested. Soon thereafter 4 more accounts were started, two "paid" premium (for older household members) and 2 left just as F2P for the youngest in the house to mess around with.

    I think only players from before the change really have a perspective on the tone of those threads and posts (alas pretty much all lost to the great forum purge/dump some years back). There is a fundamental difference however between the psychology of a VIP subscriber and a Premium. The VIP looks at the game as an ongoing expense where the game itself needs to justify that monthly outlay. A premium made a purchase decision and once done, that is a sunken cost, so whether they play a lot or little or never again, that sunken cost is one and done. The VIP is constantly looking at the ledger and asking, is it worth another month or not? I keep the VIP for few reasons like Elite opening (which was diluted via the Store), early access (although that is diluted by the previews on lamaland), and a few other things that matter to me in some fashion.

    I'm not cancelling my VIP subscription even if there's a new expansion. I have a choice to get it or not - why would I cancel my VIP 'cause I have a choice of another expansion?

    I look at how any game does it and there are subscription models that still have you buy expansion. Maybe I'm missing something here? But I agree with a lot of people who points out that increasing the level cap again might be a bad idea considering that there's not nearly enough Epic content to unlock all the destinies especially since the repeat penality is starting to hit hard. There has to be some kind of repeat decay just like there's a ransack decay. We don't level the same way as we did years ago. Remove the penalty completely and add a decay on it instead - like 5 or 7 days to go away completely. People who TR won't wait until the penalty is gone to re-run the same quests and it makes no sense to have the penalty in regards to destiny leveling.

    Come on - I don't mind new content, new ideas, but lets first blow away all the garbage features like BTC mats, penalties and such that are boat anchors to most players.

    Glin,
    There are times I will create a character and go the way of a custom build, but as a very casual player, there are times I will just take the pre-made paths when creating a character. How does or will this affect the pre-made paths when the new enhancement system is in place? If so, will there be any changes to the paths?
    Thanks.

    Happy Birthday DDO and thanks for the news, Glin.

    I will reserve judgment on the changes to come but as of now, they are a bit underwhelming.

    Value is in the eye of the beholder. IMO, the longer you stay, the better off you are to go premium. For a year or less foray into the game and check it out, ViP all the way.

    Indeed. Some of us were just slow learners.

    Ah, thank you, such naive innocence cannot but bring a smile to the face.

    you mean you are gonna come this far and not let us know if the 'current iteration' has the same ridiculous 3 tree limit as the 'last iteration'? mean, just mean.

    Because,(based on your post) it appears you are a pessimist, and that you don't accept any opinion but your own as valid?

    And update 17 was about GEAR far more than it was about epic gianthold. If you consider that they upgraded a few hundred items, then yes, i consider that an update.

    That's disappointing. One of the benefits of the new system was to be full PrE paths.

    I like the new content ideas and the frequencey. However, before charging us for the 2nd expansion, how about getting the first one to work right? I am still waiting on several EDs to be fixed that I paid for....

    How is that different than http://ddowiki.com/page/Enhancements ? Artificer is planned to have 2, so that is the stated minimum = at least two... Doesn't mean they won't flesh out and put in the missing planned ones.

    Great really looking forward !!

    just a few
    Will arti and clrc get their ED's ??
    Will there be a new playable race with wisdom as main stat ??
    Is more "old" content going to be Epicified ?? (Epic Shroud YaY!)

    With the lvlcap increase will we get another way to increase power, something like devine powers granted by a god, where the choice is linked to your race and/or alignment (would be nice to be forced not to be True Neutral for a change).

    many thanks
