How to Make Extra Money for Graal

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?



No, I'm not serious ...

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)

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.

MysticX2X will become famous soon enough
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?
