Free Gold Period

Alot of games have a free trial period e.g. WoW (It would be a free gold period in graal's case). Which gives people a taste of what they'll receive before paying for it, which i believe would be a good idea.

This could be made effective for new players just starting off, if they enjoy the gold period then they can upgrade themselves into a gold member, if they prefer not upgrading then its up to them. If put together along with advertising then this could increase the number of subs graal gets by a convenient number.

I suggest a 7 Day trial period for each Computer and a few banners on sites which you can advertise your game for free, as well as youtube and veoh.

If I am noob and wanna try out game, a observer mode each x minutes doesnt make fun.
7days gold sounds good, so you can see the diffrence between gold(or classic) and trial

We have a trial mode for zone
not a gold trial mode for zone where you have access to hotkeys, classes and 100 hp instead of 80.

I'd rather see Graal pull away completely from trial's and subscriptions and focus on cash-shop type income, solely. It's a reason nearly every free game is cash-shop now.

People would rather feel like they are freely paying for advantages(no matter how cosmetic they are) rather than being pressured to pay for subscriptions.

We'd all rather see that but the fact is nothing will change while Stefan and Unimax are thinking the way they do, so rather then convincing them to change the system, it be a better idea to try get more subs through other ways, free trial periods, better advertisement, more benefits for long time subscribers and whatever else i've forgotten to mention

If that's the attitude for this sort of thing, then your suggestion is no better. They consider the observer mode a 'trial' mode with free time.

Well I agree on the fact that this will probably never happen due to the fact they are stubborn and don't like changing much but its worth a try.

You have 5 hours of real free playing time, the observer mode is starting after that.

Is 5 hours really enough, most other companies give players more time so that they make a significant investment (with their time) in the game and therefore will pay instead of losing that investment

yeah, 5 hours isn't enough. let the players experience the game as a normal player for x amount of days this way they know what they're upgrading for. they're not going to want to pay for the game if they don't know what to expect :x

I'd rather shell at money once a year from my own pocket than having kids running around being better than me because they have mommy's credit card
