Important Change for Honorbuddy, Demonbuddy and HearthBuddy Lifetime Users

    Greetings Buddies,
    For our long term plans, it is inevitable to do the following changes effective immediately (tomorrow - 18 January 2017). We are changing all existing Demonbuddy and Honorbuddy Lifetime licenses to expire after 2 years of usage.

    Default Archebuddy and its future price model

    Greetings Buddies,

    this is one of the products, here at Buddybots, with a dedicated developer that works on daily basis.

    However it seems like the bot itself is in a niche, that does not pay out the costs invested.

    Our plan until 2016 is the following:

    1. We reworked the price model, there are no Lifetimes anylonger, only monthly and yearly payments.
    2. At the end of the year we will evaluate our decision.

    And then there would be some options to chose from, either discontinue the bot or continue with the monthly/yearly payments or do a mix of it and discontinue lifetime sessions to force new purchases that could carry the development costs.

    Bossland & discuss

    Also updated "questing plugin 1-50" which will in future support new races "AA 3.0" and have different fixes, will be published as a free plugin within next week.

    I'd gladly do the pay yearly option.

    So those of us who paid for a lifetime will no longer have a lifetime or do we get grandfathered in?

    Will we be able to keep the lifetime session we already have for those whom bought the lifetime session already? or will our lifetime session be revoked?

    Will the current lifetime members' subscriptions be left alone or will they be converted to the yearly plans?

    I would hope that current lifetime subscribers would continue to have the lifetime bot they paid for to begin with, otherwise lifetime was never lifetime to begin with. I very much so understand that buddy has taken a hit as of recently and is having a hard time rolling with the punches, however we've already lost Exilebuddy lifetime when we were given the ultimatum that we either take the hit and and convert our keys over to another bot and repurchase on the new subscription model or allow the bot to be shut down itself and lose either way.

    More than likely the same ultimatum roll with the change or lose access. Lifetime generally isn't lifetime anymore. It's akin to saying I want to buy one tub of icecream and get all the flavors no matter what changes or new flavors will be developed. I sincerely doubt even with ALL the lifetime subs it's not enough to maintain server costs and time invested etc.

    I don't believe there's an alternative to force the dev's hand. You go with AB or nothing in a nut shell. Personally I stopped using just too many ban hammers to make it worth the while but was happy to buy the lifetime and support mod dev's etc. I had fun still like to see what goes on here in forums.
