uhh are you trying to say that their net income in the end was $6 million? for a company bringing in $162 million that doesn't exactly fill me with confidence. that shows they are almost entirely relying on investor funding and are making little themselves. when you factor in operating expenses, payroll, legal fees and all the stuff a company has to pay for, that doesn't leave a whole lot for developmenet purposes. Then add the fact their development budget is stretched between several games....
that doesn't paint a good picture for PWE overall
and keep in mind its the customers a company untimately answers to, not the shareholders. because its the customers that provide your income. few customers = low income = angry shareholders = loss of investments. a companies job is to keep its customers happy first.
The fact that they only had $6 million in income doesn't mean they don't have $40 million in cash reserves built-up from several years. Remember, they had the $50 million dollars available to buy Cryptic - they've also been repurchasing their Stock over the last few years: 4 million shares, IIRC. Also, keep in mind that 162 was Net Income - after all expenses. Their Gross Income was $474 million - which means they have around $40 million per month to deal with development and other expenses.
Crafting is not dead due to Dilithium costs. Crafting is dead for 2 reasons:
1: You quickly out-level anything you Craft that isn't Mk XII, meaning there's no reason to Craft it.
2: The vast majority of items you Craft are not as good as the items you earn simply by playing.
Pre-VA, I'd agree with you for the most part. Anything you're crafting is going to be more just to increase your general research skill, having decent items for your level is just side benefit before you've outleveled them in a few hours. At VA, I disagree, at least from the console perspective. It can take a long time to find a set of consoles better than MK XI rares. It's also easy access to any kits you might want for you and friends, even though you can get them from elsewhere.
I agree that the dilithium cost is hurting crafting. Perhaps not have killed it, but it's definitely helping load the gun and steadying the aim.
As for the original topic. People who buy lifetime I think should probably get it from the subscription date. They're not exactly about the pay for more months, so why not? It'll be a bit of incentive for people to go lifer, even if they're 500 days in but have been playing for 3 years. But for recurring subscribers, no. In the end though, I do think the subscription rewards could do with some improvement.
