Just like the title suggests how about we get an option to have an all in one subscription method for the buffs.

Id like to read toughts of adventurers on this and why would be good/bad.

65€/month or lets  ~150 for 90 days, hope you don't expect they pack you everything for 15€/month and stop timer while you offline, right ?

If they would pack them together and sell it as a combined price of 65$ that would discourage the buyers.

If they sell it seperately, with smaller price tag, even with dicounts here and there, that do create the illusion that the players pay less, hence they more likely to buy it.

I agree that combining every convinience buffs into a single 15$ monthly sub would be a more playerfriendly solution but they would mostlikely lose on that.

I see, quite true if you think about it.

But on the personal level, would you have invested more in the game if it was sub based ?

For me for the 15 months that I have been playing I would have invested way larger ammount if it was sub.

Yeah they create the notion that individual buffs are cheap but players know how to do the math and just wait for steam packs or BDO bundles. and once the buffs are gone many see it as a way to take a break like many of my active friends did last month.

If it would be sub based instead of F2P, it would be dead. This game doesn't worth 15$/month, not even close. Yeah there are ppl who buy those buffs to get advantage(not P2W kappa), but the mayority don't, since this game is not worth IRL cash, and even those who pay would not play with a game which have less than 500 players online...

btw watch how AOC, the next big kickstarter game, which plans to be sub-based (with ingame cash shop obviously) game going to fail hard :D

They should combine Kamy and Old Moon into Value Pack without increasing the price. $15 a month is already passed a typical sub.

Korea has proved for a decade that the microtransaction model works better than subscription. The problem is PA is mixing the subscription model and worse, the MACROtransaction model along with the tried and proven microtransaction model.  Instead of selling one 30 day sub for $15, they should divide that by 30 and sell 1 day Value Packs for 50 pearls. Chasing after whales with MACROtransactions is not reliable.

Remove Sub for bdo make it all free. Make money on other items people quit over not having vaule pack more would play if it was free. Those new players mite get baited into buying big bundles so make money on that. If not 5$ for all subs is great deal and most would go for it. Do something for small spenders for change this would help alot. And prob increase population over 10% maybe more. Dont fuck us with these sub prices its to much money when you need only costumes and big bundles to make real money off players subs should be more afordable for all players. This hurts the game in long run sure you make bank on it but you lose players and dont gain as many new ones.

Honestly, when they introduced the Old Moon Book and the Kama blessing in the store is when I stopped buying Value Packs.  I had "subscribed" regularly since VP was introduced.  The only things I really miss are the Merv's Pallette and remote investing in nodes. 

I still have a bunch of Old Moon books and Kama Blessings from rewards, and even some VPs I pop once in a while if I want to redo my nodes.  It's perfectly possible to play without any of the buffs.

If they decide to combine them all into one again for 15/mo, I'll go back to buying them.

This would be the ultimate quality of life change that would honestly make Pearl Abyss a more respectable company. Cherry on top of all the previous QoL changes and a massive win.
