this has possibly been mentioned, but i could not find a thread I feel pricing is wrong, my reason is simple. elite costs 600GP simple enough right. you can only buy for the lowest price 500GP, heres where the issuse starts, im forced/bullied to buy the next pack up 1200GP, now yes this will get me 2x elite, heres the but elite counts down even when your not in game! thats unfair for starters it should only count down when in use (playing a match) not when im at work or offline, in my mind this isnt value for money in any sense, due to this i dont want to spend money and even though i love the game i can walk away without issue. any other players feel this way?

Yes it always seemed odd to me too. The times I can play vary quite a bit, so being able to buy, say, Elite that applied for 5 hours of actual playing time would be much more appealing than a week's worth which I might only use for a couple of hours.

congratulations, you now understand how free to play w/ ingame money purchases work. this is a concept most microtransaction-modells use. anyway - i don't see why it is unfair for starters to count down gametime which is paid with real money in real time. it's a flatrate, simple enough right. you also pay for your internet connection when not at home, or your TV ... and probably for other MMO gametimes, too

there was no need for the sarcasm. ive played to many free to play, the ones that have the largest populations generally get the balance right. i dont feel this is the right balance as i dont have a choice im forced to buy the next pack up, as for the counting down of elite no that isn't fair, yeah its free to play and i get they have to make money, but business always works best when fair and good value These days paying for internet when not at home is more viable and needed due to smart homes etc so imo not really a valid point. as for tv well i pay a licence fee because its UK law, which lets me watch tv on the go, yes i pay for nowtv but again i can use this anywhere so its good value, unlike sky/virgin which is expensive and limited on the go so not really value.

Yes it's been brought up before. It's not a player friendly scheme, but it is a company friendly scheme. Since they're doing this to make money, it's not going to change. It's why I won't buyt elite, but I don't hold it against them either.
