We wanna remain open to everything and see what works, and evolve based on feedback. So yeah this is also something to consider! One thing we have are running monthly server costs (not to mention development and maintenance costs), so with something that's yearly, we were kind of hoping to help with covering that. But we'll have to see how it goes, and we understand how some people prefer one-time unlocking (though I guess it would also depend on the price).

whos gonna complain at 8.99 a year? thats 74p a month. spotify costs way more than that and noone complains lol
i dont really care about the cost honestly but many people wont buy it if they know its going to expire someday

Yes, but... there are thousands of people that bypass spotify, netflix, and many other for
the "yet another expense" syndrome, one reason why ive never played MMO's
its a waste of money, once the server go, so does all of your years of progress, work and purchases. Some of us want something we can pass on for years to our grandkids, like
"i played this when i was your age sonny"

The first and most important rule of Development, Djing, Catering ect.
your making a crowd happy, not just yourself.

LOL, you're truly hilarious.
Consider yin and yang: balance in all things, so to counter, I will share:

I played World of Warcraft since 2009 and only stopped this past October. Not once, not even looking back, have I thought I wasted my money (not even when I bought cash-shop fancy mounts). It was time well spent with a quality game and playing (in a guild) with people who started as strangers and became good friends. (To wit: this past September I took a 2 week vacation across the country all around Alaska and met up for dinner with one of my guildies who lives in Anchorage!)
If I never go back and play WoW again, if Blizzard suddenly went belly-up and all of our characters were wiped forever, sure I'd miss the history but I'd have still gotten my money's worth. And I still have the friends and all of the screenshots. =)
$15 a month, 12 months in a year, for 6 years = $$$$


But I know, it takes all kinds.
And sadly there are so many people out there who look at a very useful app, or game, on iOS or Android and scoff at a 99 cents one time purchase for life.
SMH.
Sigh.
$8.99 per year, IMHO, is cheap for what you get in Anyland! I feel like it's original one-time-fee price of $11.99 was a steal, considering in 6.5 months I've clocked over 500 hours! That surpasses all of my Steam games' individual times.
As someone with money spending issues. I very rarely will subscribe to anything. HUGE turn-off for me. But I wouldn't mind it with this game.

To be honeest, if I had 12 accumulative hours of in-game time to try for free, and proper tutorials, in-game to help me learn to play, I wouldn't mind a cost.

Lack-of Tutorials is my only problem with the game right now.

i play 3 games with monthly and 1 i been paying reg for 12 years , i think if the content is pleasing the people will pay, hell when i get another vr set im buying another copy and will gladly pay the yearly for that one. hell i already got my 9 bucks worth this year and i have only had anyland a few months.

they have games that are 10 bucks on marketplace that last only 15 to 20 min and all it is is a jump scare or two. Mr Cage has terrified me more than twice, so like i got 30 bucks worth this year ?

I can't even go see a movie for as cheap at $9 for 2 hours anymore!
I've clocked over 500 hours in Anyland.
