This plan should show exactly how Graal can make some more money, to stop all these damn limitations.

I sure wouldn't mind this, anyone else?

I think they have enough money its just they're greedy. I wouldn't mind a stupid pop-up that says "Upgrade now!" every few minutes...

Highly doubtful but blatantly pointing out how a company is doing in terms of economics on their own forum is kinda rude. I used to do it too years ago but grew up.

This kind of advertising is more annoying than attractive. Annoying never really works that well.

GREAT IDEA PAL! Man I would pay any amount to get to experience that graceful display of beauty! This is an incredible idea, I cannot wait until this feature is enabled for subscribers.

Lmao, I remember this, was annoying as hell.. If it was there for trials I would pay to get rid of it (If I really like the game).. (xD? I wouldn't, but I bet SOMEONE would)

You don't think they're making a crap load of cash from the gelats on Zone?

Graal used to be ad-supported. It didn't work. Subscriptions and limitations on trials are necessary, but it would still be a good idea to have advertising in PM windows or something for trials.

They'd have to be selling several hundred thousand gralats on Zone just to approach the money made from renting servers.

They already make enough money from the useless servers using barely any space or bandwidth.

I wouldn't mind an advertisement on the playerlist(much like most IM services have), and some on the site(to be honest, might make it look better) and maybe sign in screen... as long as they aren't intrusive(flash) and ALL over the place.

I forgot about the rented servers. Those make a plenty of money. Why do they need more?

Aren't the Graal servers Cyberjoueur's OWN machines?

If you two seriously think CJ is making "enough" money you must blind, possibly stupid, or a mixture both. If CJ had the piles of cash you say they have then why do they have to resort to using players as developers on G3D? Why would they need to constantly change the trial systems to try to get people to upgrade?

If they had the money you claim they do, why is Graal the way it is today? Have some ****ing respect, if Graal was sitting on cash things would be different. To simply sit back and call them greedy as if they have more than enough is just retarded, specially without any background information.

I heard they're renting a place in Texas for the gameservers. Would make sense, as Europeans experience a delay with Classic's serverside hit detection (atleast I do).

If you read what Az said, he thinks CJ is greedy and hiding the fact that they have a lot of money.
Of course, I don't believe it, because they really don't have much of a business plan and how they're going to get from gum-on-the-sidewalk game to 5-start-hotel game.

Why do you think they do? What if somebody actually told you they don't?

No they don't dude, do you even have a slight hint on how much it costs to run a company? I understand you're an avid Zone players but atleast try to use some common sense.

It's fairly clear to me that Cyberjoueurs does not make very much money and probably has to struggle to break even these days. It's very funny!
