Ummmm Torn is advertised as free game is it not?....... And the NPC made the point market stable. Since people have freaked out and there isnt any avaiable,inflation has sky rocketed once again which is something you put the point NPC up to avoid happening in the first place. You self professed in the newspaper article that you had crossed the million dollar threshold from having this game. Now it just seems you rely to much on it as a sole income and making the people that have been here the longest(from the beginning till present) question what it was all for.


Torn is still free, it's free if you don't have points, it's free if you don't have donator status. You are not forced to pay anything. You may want to if want those things though. Otherwise, enjoy your free play!


it would still be free if there was no way to get donator status with in-game credit, like a lot of other games

As a player of World Of Warcraft I'm used to paying 8.99 ($14.00) per month to Blizzard games.When I first came across T.C. I didn't belive such a good game could be free.
I'v donated every month I'v played and regard $5 as such a small amount of money it's laughable.
Incredably you can play for free if you like.
It's about time some of you realised how lucky you are to have access to such a high quality game for no payment,stopped moaning and learned to enjoy yourselves.
As far as points go,the game is what the game is.It runs to give fun and pleasure to the players as best decided by its owner and his staff.
Thats the end of my rant Now bring on the hospital food LOL

You should realise , most of torn's players arnt old enough to have paypal/google accounts , to pay for donator packs so you need to bring back donating by SMS or find another way for people to do it safely , i am old enough to donate now and i might now and again but when i had just started and i couldnt donate, I would of happily but couldnt

Fair play to Ched for not lashing out at certain things some folks have said,I would imagine its got to a tipping point where there is that much ingame cash hardly any DP's get sold and nows the time to rebalance some what as no one can survive forever making loses....may be one day it could return if need be.

it is true that Ched's being generous by allowing us to be donators through points.
Thanks Ched !

I have never payed for donator status, but I would agree with you, Ched, if you made it to where people could not get donator status through points.

torn is great as it is.
i guarantee you that if torn is no longer free it will become crap, think about how many text based RPGs there are at the moment, and they're all competing for the top spot.

maybe decrease the price of buying DPs with real cash or increase price of points / DPs in game.

Your doing great Joe (Ched) so keep it up. Quality not Quantity!

Genuine donator here

People will complain no matter what until you spoonfeed them and they rule the game, then they will complain it's too easy :'(.

Maybe try raising the cost of a Donator Pack in points so they cost 200 points instead of 100?


Awesome

Why not do like you originally mentioned awhile ago before you deleted it quickly and put points back and remove the 100 point dp. Most all my points go towards buying the 25 point refill.

SO you've removed the ncp point sellers yet points still remain capped at $50,000 making it impossible for people to actually get points off the market thus forcing users pretty much to pay 5 real dollars to get 50 points it's kinda strange how this rolled out pretty much the same day as the new racing update which funnily enough required a 50 point licence to even start racing.

And you say your not in it for the money yeah right it was a obvious attempt to gouge real cash from users in a so called quick fix method using the new racing system.

i'd happily pay $5 a month to play if it stopped the price gouging of items, example the new astra gsi was being price gouged for 2-3 days at $5,000,000 when it's clearly only worth $100,000 tops.

What is happening to torn

A couple of point to mention here ched, firstly you need to appreciate a lot of the people complaining about updates being released behind schedual are doing it with tongue in cheek, we know you're not going to finish it on time and we're okay with it, we just like complaining.

Secondly I can see how you need money for servers, but incase you didn't realise you don't get that many points from donator packs, one donator pack gives you two days refils... do you realy expect people to buy a donator pack every other day? and if people do it will lead to everyone having a truly rediculous number of donator days.

Why not just kill the ability to buy donator packs with points. That way you can bring back the NPC points and we can use refills again.

Also free players would be able to race too. Unless that was the intention of the 50 point licence. But that could be resolved by making the licence a donator reward.
