    Subscribing now! So glad they pulled the trigger on this. They have a pretty good number of really passionate fans that will do this.

    Of course, this does raise the question:

    If everyone subs for the telethon rewards and if every sub counts as $5 towards the telethon total, will we reach a point where we have enough subs that people stop watching the telethons?

    Other options?

    I think its a fairly easy answer
    [] tick here to sub...or don't

    Seems reasonable considering what you get.

    The amount of content they release month to month is pretty extraordinary.

    You get more in a few months than what you would normally find in an expansion pack that takes years in other games.


    Edit: Just looked at the subscription plan. They should do something else as far as rewards of being a subscriber.

    Love what it gives you for the $9, and think there are a few more ways this could be made more accessible.

    I would think we could have a couple levels below what is there now. Such as:

    • Basic: $2.50, gets you a couple of COTOS, just because you love SotA and Port!
    • Standard: $5, 4 COTOS, Entry into Livestream Benefits
    • Bronze: $7.50, 7 COTOs, Entry into Livestream Benefits, Title
    • and other possibilities...
    Just a thought, from someone who is subscribing already *grins*

    Doubt it, since both the Devs and us seem to enjoy them so much and there's a lot to be learned from them - I subscribed right away though, it's a good offer for the price and in wildly different timezones, (1AM finish time for the whole show for me) means I often ended up buying some minor stuff in the store at the start of the evening then falling asleep and catching up the info when the recorded version was online.

    Thank you: It is a great possibility to take part on further development AND not to forget about the telethon date!

    One suggestion, @DarkStarr:
    There are still so many titles we have in game, and of course we just can use one.
    What about the following collector idea:

    Offer a special (e)STAMP with a picture of Towns/Persons/Countryside ... instead.
    [With the unique border like a real stamp!]

    And may be we will receive after 12 or 24 months an ingame stamp-album for collecting!

    It would also be fine to use these stamp pictures as Avatar in Forum, and of course - when sending post inside the game ...

    Any chance for something like that? :)

    think they should go in a diffrent direction 4 tiers

    $10 a month with 10 cotos

    $27 for 3 months with 36 cotos

    $48 for 6 months with 90 cotos

    $84 for 1 year with $240 cotos

    plus other extra rewards those are sort rough figures but that gives you a doller of each month per tier $10 to $7 maybe change the amount of cotos a bit

    you want to encourage people to go for the longer options to bring in more money quicker but also give them better deals if they just want to go with cheaper options

    Finally.

    Question: Does the Subscription income count toward the Stretch Goals, @DarkStarr?

    He already stated it counts toward today’s livestream goal. But we don’t know if this will count toward future livestream goals (I can assume it will, but who knows).

    I guess we need this in a flashing NEON sign, either on the ad banner or soon as you log in, or both! :)
