Well, we have a community board post for discussion but I'm curious what the actual numbers are on these questions. So please answer the poll. You can comment in this thread too if you want, but we already have a community board post for that.

Nexus might be more fun with more players on, but I think if it were free the amount of players that would flock would cause problems with the community and servers. I would probably play more if I didn't have to pay and especially if elixirs became more populated, but it might ruin the game for some people*.


*Roleplayers, snoddy people, and Teragg might have an aneurism.

Why would a larger population ruin the game for roleplayers?

I definitely do not think something such as experience-boosts should be added to the item shop. This would just turn the game into a pay-to-win game. A game like league of legends can do something like that because there is an end to leveling. Nexus technically has no end to leveling, and anyone that doesn't pay for experience boosts will go slower, creating an imbalance and somewhat unfairness.

If Nexus went F2P, and if they started advertising, they would be faced with a massive influx of players. Such an increase would force them to almost completely overhaul several systems they have in place. F2P games that have any success generally have several servers to accommodate the massive amount of players they have subscribing. Even if this is something that KRU is either incapable of or unwilling to do, they would still have to add more support for general inquiries, technical support, and justice issues.

As KRU is set up now, they don't have to hire people to do most of that work, they can source employees from the game itself and pay them absolutely nothing. This is infinitely easier than increasing the number of paid staff.

I was going to elaborate further, but I'm tired so I'll just say this. KRU can either be lazy and change nothing, take no risk and make no more profits and slowly watch their game fizzle out - or they can take a risk and improve their infrastructure, go F2P, advertise, and potentially breathe new life back into one of the oldest online RPGs with one of the more passionate communities out there.

Knowing KRU, I'd say we're probably all dead. I hope they prove me wrong.

I like your words, Joe.. But mostly because they come from you!

Even if Nexus went f2p, they wouldn't have to completely change it. People would still be willing to be drudges for Nexus even if they didn't have to pay to do so.

And yes, Nexus is probably doomed. However! On the Dreams board Aeons suggested we send tickets to Kru on the subject if we want our opinions to be heard. I'd say it's good advice. I should probably update that..

I can only see KRU making Nexus F2P if there is another game out there that steals their players away. Then they'd basically be forced to find a way to bring players back. As it is right now, Nexus is a cash cow and it always has been.

Yes Nexus should be F2P.

Yes cash shop should contain useful items to give people incentive to buy that arent just cosmetics. Its how every other successful free MMO's make money.

No I wont return. Game will still be ass even if its free.
