I'm just curious, but as a community or as players what do you think is a good 30 day subscription price providing it gives you access to the whole game and all everything within the game is free after said payment. 

Just a little trivia~

 £5 = $6.50/€5.90 

Pound prices from 3 regions are pretty close atm since brexit so I'm going to basically use pound for the little survey.

Please answer honestly :^)

EDIT

This is not a questionnaire to make BDO Pay 2 play. This is a questionnaire simply talking about what you would pay, in your eyes a perfect Pay 2 play game having all the features you want. All you need to do is pick a reasonable monthly price (*reasonable monthly price for yourself) for playing the game you like.

Didn't see zero on the poll.

 

It is zero now. It should always be zero.

 

I say this as someone who loves this game.

Guys guys, literally everything is in the first sentence. "Curious" "as a community" 

Not, "guys lets make black desert online pay 2 play, what do you think are reasonable prices from the list below".

Im gathering data for something far more important than something as trivial as "making black desert pay 2 play". Even though a old poll did ask pearl abyss to make the game p2p. They have to fight for it and they settled with b2p.

You're not understanding me at least.

I don't think any sub price is reasonable. That's my answer.

I don't want everything to be free, I prefer f2p or b2p with things I can purchase, that are permanent.

That defeats the purpose of my question which is "what do you think is a reasonable subscription price?"

If I had £0 then I should've asked what would you pay for a game. And a sub question if it should be p2p, f2p and b2p.

But I gave you an answer.

No sub means I can pay as much as I feel my experience was worth.

It means no pressure to play if I feel like doing or playing something else.

It means no thinking if I really want to play next month, or if I want to play a whole month to start playing again.

It means never accidentally paying something I forgot to cancel...

So $0.00 is what I think is a reasonable subscription price.

I play games for fun not because I want something else to micromanage or another financial commitment up front.

Well... Obviously? That's you. You can't measure personal value. Hence why kick starters and crowd funding for items that some people just see no use for do so well. I'd easily pay £100-200 for a Armored core figma of Supplice made in metal, yet I doubt you would for such a toy. 

But I gave you an answer.

Dude I think your brain just farted. 

If a products subscription is £0 then it's a free to play. 

Though this question has nothing to do with your experience nor does it have anything to do if you feel inclined to not play the game anymore. Simply, what is a fair subscription price. If a fair subscription price is nothing. It defeats the purpose of the question. It would make more sense if  I said what is a fair price for online only model games.

For a P2W game like BDO, there shouldn't be a sub.

If it was Sub I would say 10£ for 1month, 3 months 7£ each a full year at 5£ a month. 

However I honestly feel the game is best off being Buy to Play with optional cash shop as it is now.

I always preferred subscription games, had no choice though with BDO.

about 10£ monthly sounds fair - and as you mentioned, all included: no cash shop at all, everything achievable ingame.

Ok. If everything with a functional (read: not cosmetic) impact from cash shop was achievable in game and not available for cash then I'd happily pay anywhere between $10-20 a month.

its B2P model why would you want us to pay monthly after that... additional charges should only be related to perks and some costume items

$10 a month would be nice, although I happily pay $15. 

I liked the idea that someone proposed of long term payment plans with cheaper per month prices.

I'd pretty much pay what was asked because I like the game. I don't like a forced sub because I am more likely to stop playing if I don't feel like I will get the value for the month. I feel like if I don't log in everyday i'm losing money.
