@Anders, you could send out a game-wide vote just to get a feel of how many people will be sticking around, how many are on the fence, and how many are big no-no's. Maybe keep a sentence in there that asks people to comment on the forums and give them a link


This is a good idea. An in game message including a link to a poll have now been sent.

Appreciate it. I think it may have happened via me performing the action on my phone, waiting for the page to load (poor connection), and clicking the "Submit" button again once or twice. Hope that helps you work it out - thanks!

 

Thanks. That could explain how this happened. I’ll see how I can prevent this from happening in the future.
 

Could this be related to multiple stats issue?


I don’t think this is related. But I’ll check anyhow. Thanks.

It’s very hard to get ads to work unless you have a huge user base. Very few people click ads and they clutter the game. It’s not an option for us right now.

A one time fee would create too much of obligations on both parties. At this point we doesn’t know how things will turn out and therefore is a monthly subscription the way to go in my opinion.

I believe it’s also hard to compare a subscription on an online game with a regular console game. You don’t buy the online game, you pay for using the service. The online game evolves, the game you payed for a few years ago isn’t the same online game that you pay for today. All updates are included in the fee. An console game is outdated quite fast. This is my opinion and I understand that others may feel differently.

The Blog post part 2 has now been updated with the following.

 

Price for an subscription is changed from $3.50 -> $2.99 / month. No big change I know.

 

But here's the real news. (Copy paste from the blog post).

Special offer to all our current users

We really want to show our appreciation to all of you who currently play this game and to keep as many of you as we possibly can. That’s why all of our current users, that sign up within the first month after the release, will be offered a lifetime $1.99 subscription plan PLUS getting one extra team for free. That is two teams for $1.99/month. 
 
Note that secondary teams must be created in a different game world.
 
Free leagues
The subscription plan described above is required for participating in the main competition (LIHL -> GHL). But we also  want to offer some free to play option. 
 
That’s why we will introduce a separate league structure called Free Hockey Leagues (FHL) within each and every game world. These leagues will be below LIHL level attracting players around 40-60 overall. Leagues will be completely free for users to play in, no subscription required. Teams can not promote from this leagues but there will be a playoff after the regular season with a designated winner. 
 
Most but not all features will be available in these leagues. For instance is youth draft not available but trades are. 
 
Even if separate FHL will play an important part of the game world since teams in the league will interact and sign free agents from the same free agent pool as the competition leagues. This means that they will help create world history, for instance players evolving in free leagues continuing their career in higher leagues.
