P2P but no P2W server

I think this has been suggested before but just putting it out there to see how many of you would be interested in a P2P server which has no cp crediting and no bound gear bollox. Idc if its $5 a month (lol as if), $10 a month (pffft), $20 a month (maybe?), or $30 a month (TQ:now we're talking) I think if it was done right alot of people would subscribe and TQ could earn an extra penny in their pocket.

Currently I am not playing at all but I'd come back for something like this!

I mean, this might have worked 10 years ago, but Conquer online is an outdated game. I know that CO still receives updates, but it isn't updated well enough to justify a monthly fee. I mean if you guys want to pay a fee to play this game then... go for it, but I don't think the player base would be large enough. However, say that there are enough players to make this feasible for TQ, then TQ would still half ass their servers, and you all would have latency issues. DDOS would also still be a thing.

Yeah, definitely not enough demand. I'm not sure if you've been playing since the Chasm Map update but it's worth checking out. Probably the best expansion they've added since.... ever? lol Anyway GL

The Thing is most players of us are usually 20+ years old haveing a full time job, 10 years ago ya would be pretty cool. But nowadays we just don't have the time. And also i guess most egys will not play on a server like that, and lets be real they are the ones that make the game populated.

world of warcraft is the still huge and it's a sub game -- full time job being 20+ isnt a valid reason to not having the time because millions of people have shown that it's not the case

I agree that TQ would half ass it but to be honest, even if it was like back in CO 2.0 days where the servers were full of botters there was still a higher activity amongst players (I'm talking about players actually leaving TC and hanging in AC/DC/BI) and I enjoyed playing the game much more back then.

Also if this were to actually happen, bringing back the old red name / black name pk system would be a must :P

I haven't checked that out yet, no. I have logged on once since the 3.0 update and the new TC was hurting my eyes so bad I couldn't handle it. This map looks like it has some good drops though, perhaps I will give it a gander if I ever end up logging back in... Can you enter this map for an indefinite amount of time or is it limited to an hour or so a day?

Yeah I think a subscription service is still a worthy option in this day and age. If players enjoy the game they are playing then they don't mind investing time to grind. This puts everybody on a level playing field so we wouldn't have to play 24/7 to try and grind our way to full +12 - remember back in 1.0 / 2.0 days full +6 Sup 1soc was considered "strong".

Yeah it's unlimited so if you're interested check it out pretty great tbh especially while you've still got luck points.
