The in game shop is a great way for new players to play catch-up with their buddies. There's no need to use it if you don't want to, just ignore it. Besides, the in game shop sells services for wealth. Yes, you can buy more wealth online, but you can also earn it in game, so questers have an advantage and it gives people another incentive to pursue the story aspect of the game.

Strongly against it, as far as I could tell up to now it is a nice and optional addition for people who may have the money to buy influence, but not the time to farm it.
Additionally you can get everything without paying a dime (if you really got to much time on your hands) and I have seen no item that would classify as the dreaded "Pay to win".

And let's not forget, praise alone does not pay for office spaces and employees

Just keep it the way it is.

Plus there is the fact no game survives without a touch of a game store unless it's with subs.And our store is convenient not pay to win

NOT SIGNED. I have played a bunch of MMOs where you had to eventually use the store to stay even with those who use it. That does not seem true in this case. I have never bought influence, and have competed just fine against people with royal dragons, the highest priced item in the store.

Glad to see players actually supporting the in-game shop Looks like we manage to balance this just right.

Well actually it's also because atm royal drag is the worst thing you can buy cost-wise,but yeah shop is balanced

I will only sign at the time where players who don't buy wealth can't purchase something for free.

Otherwise I was one of the guys who thought of and invented our in game shop system with Wealth, you will like it later on when you can buy a 20$ dof 2 expansion pack for free. or endless amounts of DLC quests, map packs, new world map regions? navel expansions and or homelands's second towns with naval combat. all of this is free, aslong as you have enough wealth earned. we are not like other Free to play games we do not have a currancy that only people who buy with real money can get, Wealth is easy to win you just kill a person in pvp or go complete a quest.

In terms of giving people an advantage, this is incorrect all it does it makes them have to spend less time to achieve the same that would take you longer, or make them stronger so they need to battle stronger opponents and if you are below them completely be unable to attack you.

The economic model will come clear to you after u play a bit, and the income from it will help us pay for the server fees, atleast your not paying a flat monthly rate.

Any Company needs a Source of Income beyond the Game being bought especially when the Game keeps being Improved which is the case here.

Unlike bigger Companys which pay the new Game with Earning from the Last Game and those have a circulation running.

New Companys like this need instant Money to keep Development up

Pls note that just buying it will only pays for the Development up to this point
since the Game however keeps being advanced and improved there also needs to be a constant supply of Money


I Actually Agree with the Idea of having an Ingame Job as Source of Income
since the alternative would be things like Paying for Add Ons and Bonusstuff
or for example Paying Monthly Fees

therefore I wont Sign any Idea which would hinder this Concept


Pls keep in Mind Devs and other Staff in the Company need to be paid in order to keep working on this Game
Same goes for Server and Traffic Costs



So I dont mind this Item Shop as long as it aint Game Breaking
and right now as you can Earn Crowns and stuff via other Options
and as long as things from the Item Shop are not super strong stuff making you invincible

I am absolutely fine with it.

Yeah, didn't think of that. The money does have to come from somewhere.

dont agree, it seems to me that the game handles balance fine as it is (everything can be obtained without paying)... the cash shop is just a time saver not an advantage and so long as it stays that way i dont see any issues

u already bought the game so why not give it a chance before u judge?

id rather keep it this way then have them find some other way of making money cos this game will never sell loads of copies no matter how much work they put in so they need something to repay their efforts.
