Not when that money could go towards better things, like Diesel... alcohol.. that type of thing. Even at ?6 you're still talking alot, but then it worked out at ?2 per persona, which that way was alright and I'd have probably paid about that. But at ?12 a month, that's ?4 per persona, plus there aren't that many people playing, so that's a downside - basically a game going stagnant (sp). So at ?12, no it goes above what people are willing to play. Now I'll agree that EQ isn't as good a game, actually that's probably not the right wording, it's a different game, and there are different reasons for liking both games, but it's also much better on the eye candy scale, comes with software (something MUD2 lacked, at least at the start) - a large player base and a huge world to explore. And the main reason why it ranks as "better" - it's cheaper! It appeals to the pocket more. Anyways, I've went into ramble mood, but before I go, I don't even think mass marketing would work with MUD, it would be like flogging a dead horse. It really needs a price drop, that's how you get your customers, a 20 year odd old game at that price just isn't worth it, no matter how good the game is. And also the quote from Richard's site, I don't think you could say MUD has that much competition, because I think .com is in a more dire state of affairs than ii.co.uk, and when the only competition is one as struggling as your own site, then it is not competition, it's just a joint death due to prices that are in the land of faeries! /rant off. I'm going back to my vodka. [/quote]
