Si, ancien joueur de potbs, vous avez résilié votre abo entre le 22.01.2008 et 15.01.2010, FLS vous offre 30 j gratuits du 05.02.2010 au 05.03.2010.

Merge des serveurs : Ne resteront que les serveurs Roberts (EU) et Antigua (US).

Il est désormais possible d'incarner des persos de différentes factions sur le même serveur, mais....pas en même temps.
Càd : Après chaque reset de carte, on peut désormais choisir une autre faction entre les 4 présentes et ce pendant 72 heures après le dit reset.
Ensuite, il faudra attendre le reset suivant pour pouvoir de nouveau changer de faction.

Voili voilou, vite écrit su'l'gaz...

D'après ce que j'ai vu, le jeu passera en "free to play" à la fin de l'année, avec comme limitation pour les nouveaux venus jouant gratuitement :
2 persos
2 navires
2 places pour leurs navires au port.
Avec possibilité, s'ils désirent plus, d'acquérir d'autres avantages moyennant quelques euros.
Néanmoins, le jeu sera déja entièrement "jouable" pour eux, sans rien devoir débourser

Pour les joueurs déja abonnés, même s'ils ne l'ont été qu'un mois depuis le lancement du jeu, ils auront plus d'avantages ( 5 persos par nation etc...)

Souhaitons que cette future gratuité amène de nouveaux joueurs Wink

S'lut

Plus de renseignements ci-dessous :

Last night we announced that Pirates of the Burning Sea is going to be Free to Play. Changing the business of a live game is a big deal and it’s naturally going to raise a lot of questions. Allow me to address some of the primary questions from a design perspective and clarify how we expect things to work.

What does Free to Play mean for the game?Pirates of the Burning Sea will no longer have a required membership and we will offer the complete PotBS experience to everyone. We want to remove the monetary barrier to the game and instead offer ways to enhance your experience through micro-transactions.
Micro-transaction items will be available at an in-game store. You’ll be able to purchase these items using Burning Sea Points that you can either acquire from other players or buy for real-world money.

We are very interested in offering ways to help players make the parts of the game they like better and cut down on any time spent in between. Since we don’t want micro-transactions to be a barrier for gameplay, many items for sale will be aids for reaching maximum level and tools for starting out a PvP career.

We won’t ever sell an item that lets you dominate the PvP game. We want to give all players access to the end game experience of PotBS and get them interested in the existing game systems so that the game can grow as a whole. That means that we will not be selling any outfittings, ships, etc that are clearly better than ones you can obtain through normal gameplay.

What does Free to Play mean for me?Let’s assume you have not purchased PotBS before and are considering giving our game a shot when it becomes free-to-play. The new free accounts will be able to level to 50 and the accounts will have no end date. Free accounts will only have 2 character slots per nation, but if you like to play more classes or just like to play different characters, you can upgrade the number of characters slots on your account. The same thing goes for structure slots and dockyard slots, where again you’ll have two as standard. Our goal is to give anyone who creates an account a taste of everything in the game and let you choose how you want to expand on your experience.

You will also have the option of joining the Captain’s Club. That’s our new name for subscriptions, and membership will grant you certain benefits, such as a bonus to all experience, loot chance, faction gained for kills, and a substantial discount for all items purchased with Burning Sea Points while you are a member.

Captain’s Club members and anyone who has ever subscribed to PotBS will automatically have access to every account upgrade that free accounts do not have (i.e. character slots, structure slots, dockyard slots); we don’t want to take anything away from the players who have supported PotBS since we launched.

The bottom line is that we want to offer the game to everyone for free while still making sure that our current and former subscribers are recognized for their support.

What do I have to look forward to?What I discussed above is what it means for PotBS to switch from a subscription-only to a free-to-play model, but I haven’t yet touched on why you should be looking forward to micro-transactions. Our in-game store is called Treasure Aisle and the main thing it will offer is availability.

No matter what port you are in, you now have goods available to you ranging from consumables and xp/loot/faction buffs to shoulder pets and clothing. We are even adding a number of new and unique items including follow pets and NPC allies for PvE content. We’ll be releasing more devlogs talking about some of these items in depth in the near future.

We really think you guys are going to like the items we will be offering and we hope you tell your friends to try out Pirates of the Burning Sea for free.

I’m sure you will still have a lot of questions, and we will try our best to answer them. We are still working some things out (i.e. how much real money Burning Sea Points will actually cost), so we might not have all of the answers right away.

Après lecture d'un mail reçu aujourd'hui, potbs passerait en free to play vers le 22 novembre 2010.

Les détails des 3 moyens (types de comptes) pour jouer à potbs.
(screen pris sur le site officiel)



* Terms and Conditions: Soon no software purchase will be required to play Pirates of the Burning Sea™, and no subscription purchase will be required to play much of the game for free. Some game enhancements and premium content will need to be purchased from Treasure Aisle, the in-game store, as part of the Premium Player plan, or by purchasing and maintaining a monthly Captain's Club subscription ($14.99 per month plus applicable taxes). Pirates of the Burning Sea™ requires internet connection to play, and you are responsible for all applicable internet fees. To play as a Premium Player at no additional cost, you must be a former Pirates of the Burning Sea™ subscriber with an account in good standing, or if you are a new player, you must pay for or have paid for at least one month's subscription at $14.99 (plus applicable taxes). To subscribe, update your Station Account profile with a valid credit or official SOE Game Card. To purchase Station Cash™, update your Station Account with a valid credit card or SOE Station Cash Card activation code. Promotional gameplay time and Station Cash are non-transferrable, and promotional in-game items are non-tradeable. Items, Station Cash and gameplay time have no cash value, and are subject to the game's End User License Agreement and Station Terms of Service.

** Former subscribers with accounts that were not banned or terminated will be Premium Players the first time they log into the game after it goes free-to-play.

J'avais oublié...
Le mail reçu :


Dear Current and Former Pirates of the Burning Sea™ Subscribers,

This e-mail is to inform you of upcoming changes to your Pirates of the Burning Sea™ ("PotBS") account. On or around November 22, 2010, PotBS will become a free to play game, with an optional monthly membership plan called the Captain’s Club at a cost of $14.99 per month (plus applicable taxes). This means that new PotBS players will no longer need to purchase the game client or a subscription to access and play much of the game. However, certain premium content will only be available to Captain’s Club members, Premium Players, or must be purchased from Treasure Aisle, the in-game store.

Current Subscribers

If you are currently a subscriber on a monthly, 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription plan* that will continue to be in effect after the game goes free to play, your current subscription will continue at the same price until it expires, and you will automatically go from being a PotBS subscriber to becoming a member of the Captain’s Club. As an active member of the Captain’s Club with an account in good standing, you will have access to certain premium content, features and discounts that are unavailable to non-members.

After your current subscription plan expires, you will automatically become a Premium Player and can play without paying a monthly subscription fee, but will lose access to Captain’s Club premium content, features, and discounts (which may be available for purchase from Treasure Aisle, the in-game store), unless and until you log into your Station Account to change your preferences to become a Captain’s Club member at a cost of $14.99 per month (plus applicable taxes). You can change your preferences before your current subscription plan expires, or you can wait until after your current subscription plan expires.

For details on what content and features are available to Captain’s Club members, Premium Players, and new players, please visit our website.

Station Access Subscribers

If you are a Station Access subscriber with an account in good standing when PotBS goes free to play, you will automatically become a Captain’s Club member, and you will continue to pay your regular monthly Station Access fee unless or until you cancel. If you cancel your Station Account, you will become a Premium Player.

Former Subscribers

If you are a former subscriber and your account was not banned or terminated, the first time you log into the game after it goes free to play, you will automatically be a Premium Player, and will receive access to the certain premium content and features at no cost. You can become a Captain’s Club member at any time by joining the Captain’s Club at $14.99 per month (plus applicable taxes).

For details on what content and features are available to Captain’s Club members, Premium Players, and new players, please visit our website.

*3, 6 and 12 month subscription plans are currently no longer available for purchase.




Mouais...Je persiste dans ce que j'écrivais autre part; l'offre "cap'tain club" ne semble guère intéressante pour les abonnés actuels ou ex-abonnées.
Ee sera à tester, mais la version "premium" (gratuite) a l'air plus intéressante.
Pour les nouveaux joueurs, là...ce sera à eux de voir si leur plaisir mérite l'investissement d'en vouloir plus que ce qui leur est proposé en basique.
