perhaps a subscription type of setup, although i would expect the game be completly finished and bug free before they ask for subscription, maybe the shop method could remain untill the game is complete.
no actually I'm against subs since they never last. Look at Lotro. It was a sub game then changed into a sub with f2p,then sub with f2p and more mall stuff and now sub but if you buy from store you have to buy tons of stuff.I have faith our devs will balance the shop since they actually play the game as well here so they know when something is too much.
