How to solve the bulker/nonbulker debate once and for all.

No. of servers groups: 2

Server group #1: All bulkers in this group.

Server group #2: Everybody else.

Use the money from Server group #1 to pay for upkeep of both server groups. (Cost problem solved)

Bulkers will be happy. Everybody else will be happy.

Thanks.

Server group #1: All bulkers in this group.

Server group #2: Everybody else

Server group 2 will be closed because its not profitable and TQ would have no reason to keep it just for people to enjoy.

Server group 1 will be empty as all bulkers will be bored and quit it.

Pay to play servers. 14-20 bux/month. Higher drop rates/soc chances, no purchasing DBs so that everyone is on even grounds, using the subscription money to provide better customer service, etc. This would be the most attractive option for casual DB buyers. I'd much rather pay a monthly fee to play on a server where everyone's even.

TQ's CS is in-house. No 'better' to it.

Honestly, I don't like P2P games. I feel like I gotta get on every day and get the most out of my money. Sitting in CO and socializing is part of the game.

But TQ would rather have free to play servers with pathetic drop rates/soc chances, with purchasing DBs so that buyers have overall advantage, and keeping all money for themseves providing poor customer service etc.

I'm not saying make every server pay to play, just open up a new group of servers (or even just one or two servers) that are for people who are interested.

id rather bulk than pay to play.this game is unique in every way including their idea of free to play.if p2p happens then co is just the same as any other online games.

It wouldn't hurt to open up one or two p2p servers and see how that works out. I'm sure it wouldn't take too much effort on their part to do that. It's the only viable option I could think of to make it fair for every player. It's not like they are forcing everyone to have to pay to play.

EDIT: Doesn't runescape have a similar system where you can either play for free or pay a small monthly fee for certain advantages? Even that is better than having to pay alot for a huge advantage.

$10 a month MAYBE. I would blow my brains out multiple times before paying $20 a month to play CO (more than any other top of the line mmo out current).

They'd make more money off the bulkin business than to make it a p2p.

I dunno the thing that separates CO from other MMOs to me (and I'm sure alot of you guys also) is the pvp system. I've tried games like Aion and WoW and they bore me to death.

You might think I'm crazy for saying this but I think that if CO was ran by a company that knew what they were doing, like the folks who run WoW, and using a p2p system, it could at least become a top 5 MMO. There's so much potential with this skill-based PvP system but all that goes out the window with TQ at the helm.
