i'm so lonely... i have no friends... plz help...

I don’t even pay to get an alt. If episode 2 requires money to pay then I have no real reason to keep playing this game.

I doubt I would, especially if there was still a 4 forum per day minimum after I paid money to play it.

Of course, without that restriction, the game really only lasts a couple of hours, which probably wouldn’t be worth paying for.

HUGE OBNOXIOUS RED LETTERS BECAUSE MY AVATAR ISN'T OBNOXIOUS ENOUGH ON ITS OWN

I chipped in but I can’t see myself paying more just to keep playing. Maybe a brownie point or two but not ten bux, bleh.

I would like to say I would. I love the games humor and community, and it never ceases to amaze me how badbum it is. But, unfortunately, the answer is probably no, I wouldn’t.

I second this opinion.

If you have to make it pay-to-play, at least go all the way with it. Don’t offer some ****ty, watered-down free version of Episode 2, y’know? Also, hope to see Episode 2 come out soon. I’ve been waiting for it.

Once you’re 18, if you’re a student or a steady job you should have almost no problem getting a credit card that has no additional fees, and a low cap of like 1,000. Just use it in place of debit or cash and build your credit rating, it’ll help you out in the long run.

I got a credit card, except the signature was rejected (!) but it’s okay because the local posty had opened my letter and taped it back together, so if it hadn’t been rejected I’d been in deep **** right now.

So um… yeah. I’ll pbum on a credit card until the postal service becomes reliable and safe… errrr… it’s not like I need the extra credit for anything but certain MMOs. Paypal hates me in the face btw. Apparently if you enter a bank account then **** up, it then gets bound to an email address FOREVER.

But even if I could, for a couple of brownie points, yes. Otherwise no. As it is, I’d have to pay for more than one character.

I tried to get over myself, but I'm just too awesome!

I really don’t like pay to play, so probably no, a one-time donation, maybe. I’m much more inclined to donate to a free game than pay a required playing fee.

I had the first bum avatar.

I for one would pay to play, but I’m biased I guess Log in to see images!

Seriously though, it’s a little premature to worry about it now, because we honestly haven’t decided how to approach this yet. It’s interesting to hear all this feedback though.

Anyway, just thought I should point out that you don’t need a credit card to use Paypal. You can pay by debit from any regular bank account. We’ll look into other alternatives as well, since it’s an issue for some users.

If there would be any type of payment methord using a mobile phone, That would change alot of things around for me and probibly would be buying alot of brownie points

KYOUBAI IS SUPER-SERIOUS BUSINESS

What if there was both a free-play & pay-to-play option, with the main difference being that pay-to-players got first crack at new updates, and after 4-8 weeks, those updates become free. If there was a one time fee for that privilege, and if updates were a regular event, that would be a decent compromise.

Or if pay-to-players got more customization features (load whatever avatar I want, write my own text for attacks, etcetera), that might be a worthwhile add-on.

No, I wouldn’t pay to play. There’s only one game I pay a sub fee for (final fantasy xi) and it’s the one that’s been getting my money for years. When I have a little bit of extra funds (not often) I’ll toss it to Kingdom of Loathing. Likely, this site would fall in the same sorta feel as that – if I have the extra money for it, I’ll pick up some brownie points, but if it became pay to play, I’d be very very sad, but I’d be gone.
