Re: Firefly Universe Online

Well realize that they're not trying to get some start-up money for Firefly. You "level up" your account once and then you get all the perks from all the games of having your account leveled up. So back when they made their first game (whenever that was), if they were doing the same thing then, then to reserve spots for Beta was $20, but then to reserve spots in every beta since then has been free to them.

I don't know what other perks go with "leveling up" - I went straight to the bottom and saw "$20 donation" and that put all the nails in the coffin for me. But I wouldn't say it's a "fly-by-night operation" with the request for funds. I'm just put-off by the fact that in order to do THEM a service by being a beta-tester you have to give THEM money. No ty, I'm excited but not THAT excited that I have to be among the first to get a "glimpse" (which is essentially what you're paying for since character data typically gets wiped after closed beta).

Re: Firefly Universe Online

Same same. I call it a rip-off if they want people to pay $20 sight unseen.

Agree - I want to see something rather than a rendered trailer first.
