Eh, It's still not free to play. Free to play means EVERYONE plays with no monetary transactions. It's a step closer though.

Unless I can log on and progress without having to pay, it's not free to play.

If anything, this game seems to be making a shift towards a pay-to-win strategy, like many mobile games.

So uhh... have fun with that.

Yeah KRU is making a huge mistake by even considering going this route. There isn't enough they could do to go pay to win without putting items in item shop that are basically "Jump from 99 to Sam San", and even then, that's never going to work, at least not right now.

Player base is too small, but there's enough to do in the game that new players should be able to learn the game by playing it, while at the same time, doing so at a much faster pace.

I fail to see how a registration coupon in the kruna shop = free to play?

Am i missing something? I still need to buy the kruna to get the code dont i? Seems to me like they're streamlining an annoying re registration procedure.

You can now legally buy registration codes for gold now. That's all that's happened.

Though I don't see how this fixes their original problem; charge backs. Now a person just sends the Kruna Shop Reg Code to the person through KRU, but they can still run a charge back on the kruna purchased. Now the person who bought the code for gold had a charge back placed on the item they bought with gold. I find it hard to believe KRU eats that; instead they'll probably hold the account hostage or un-reg it.

How this is any different than straight up buying a code from someone is beyond me.

Who gives a crap lol? I think this policy change is long overdue.

Whats the worst thing that happens? More people get to play every month lol? 10 bucks was alot back in the day when we were all 13 but 10 bucks to spare for a month now is negligible.
