Yes, a game that is f2p since the beginning, then opens p2p server just to make it f2p later on. Surely, that is what's going to happen. Such sense, wow.

same as allods.....f2p since beginning...then now open p2p...just to make it f2p later on...cuz people dont want to play game(on F2P)because item shop, where rich people have all not by playing the game...and on other sine ppl that wont pay any money to play game with low population like this p2p now... lets face it .. there is alot mmorpg games out there totaly free..+ like tera ,i use it just for example...how can tera,or other good mmorpg with huge population btw ,can be free and allods not? :)

allods if f2p too, they didn't trash old f2p server on way to make p2p. and you ask how f2p games manage? same way allods f2p manages, rip players wallets off with overpriced p2w:)

I think Allods p2p could have a great future if they changed to f2p and remained without the runes and most strongbox items, or made strongbox items available in game to all. Game would still make money on vanity, elixers, and other items. You'd be surprised how much I've heard people have dumped into vanity alone in some other games.

The point where the game started greatly declining among other servers is when those with deep pockets could afford all 13s and Strongbox items that provided dmg advantages. The people who remain with allods are usually those who have already invested quite a bit and would hate to see those investments go to waste. I think a hybrid of the current p2p server with a boutique would potentially be popular. Or even (just an idea) merge f2p and p2p together into a server that has runes and pat 5 removed and compensate those with runes/pat 5 for their investment to get something else from boutique. This could make the game more even across the board and bring more players into the fold.

P.S. - before any trolls comment on this I have pat 5 and lv 9s so I am fine in the f2p server, just thinking of ideas that could help the game is all.

exactly ... i Wouldn't Mind spend some money on elixirs,vanity,or even some scrols or mount.....the only problem on F2P server are rune....not even pat 5 ,u can grind pat5 in like 2 month like i did...

so on sub server i think they made a little mistake for not having item shop at all.... :P

Honestly I would be up for the idea of merging f2p and p2p servers with some compensational manner for the ones who invested a lot on runes, strongbox items and p5 stuff.. As a player who has p5, lvl 8 runes and somewhat decent vanity level and mounts (goat is best mount in game, k? srsly tho, carpet ain't that bad of a mount) with paying no more than 10 euro just to start off my journey is quite a nice idea to go with, minding that the cash shop wouldn't be the main aspect to stay competitive in the game.

I think a hard part for anyone who owns Allods to shy away from the runes is that they are such big money makers for them gg @@. For example, Highroller's pursuit of all 13s alone paid for Piopico's yearly income (pio was NA gpotato gm), not to mention a few others who have all 13s.

The disappointing thing is Allods really is a business, and those who own it are out for profit (capatalism at its finest), not for community benefit which might be why I don't see them going that route even if we all as a community ask for it. ;(
