I think there is a lot of things people are overlooking or ignoring. Or maybe I am just in the minority so let me list it out and I hope I can get peoples opinions on some of this stuff. 1.) I completely understand where you guys are coming from with not getting $$$ to pay developers. Even if people get banned the bot keys are still good, so you might get random influxes of like 10-15 bots bought and then nothing for a long time. Developer(s) are not going to go without pay for 6 months because no one has bought new sessions. Disbanding the bot or paying monthly is the ONLY way to go. However that brings up a few different issues. 1.) This community is very closed mouth about everything. Information sharing is almost non existent. I am no computer guru for sure, and it took me talking to like 8-10 different people just to figure out how to bot this game and set up a VPN or get a VPS service. This is not helpful in bringing in new users and having everyone enjoy the fun of botting. The more info that is shared the less profits people feel they are going to get. "OMG if I teach this new guy how to bot he is going to steal my profit!" Hell half the people won't even talk about what builds they run. They are "secret" 2.) The only way monthly subscription would work is for people that RMT. I have ONE session that I payed for because I enjoy botting and enjoy having some extra currencies to spend on my chars and such. I do not know how to RMT, I do not know who to sell to, is it sites? is it personal? Do you have to know the right people? If I could make steady profit from farming and selling currency/exalts I would buy a lot a more. However no one is going to tell others how to do this because of the same thing I mentioned before. If 100 people know how to bot and RMT (just picking a number) and they tell 500 other people... well supply and demand. Prices will go down people will make less money. So no one is going to share that information. I have a mortgage to pay, I live on my own and I have my own expenses. Utilities/house payment/food/gas for car/phone bill/internet bill etc. Unless you know how to RMT in this game most average people will not be able to pay monthly subscriptions for 10+ bots. 3.) I have nothing against the developers or pushedx I should say, nor the buddy team. You guys keep the bot updated and running. However 95% of the stuff that lets us RUN the bot is made by community developers. Alcor, tony, DBF, exvault etc. This is incredibly frustrating. I love these guys to death, but without them we could barely bot. Level everything by hand, not be able to do any recipes, no flasks, cant run maps, etc... These should be things that should be handled by buddy team developers. Im sure its way to much work for one guy especially when he is busy completely updating the bot with all of POE's patches and such but if this was to happen and monthly subscription is the way you guys went, the main plugins and development should not be coming from other botters. 4.) What would happen if another game changing patch breaks the bot for another 4-6 weeks. Im sure you guys would put payments on hold or something, but I would want to make sure that was a FOR SURE. I would not be paying over an entire months payment for a bot that I couldn't use. 5.) What would happen to our LIFETIME subscription(s) right now? Would we get like 3 free months to test it out? I don't mean to nit pick, but we payed a pretty hefty price for a lifetime subscription that we would now turn into a monthly payment if this moved in that direction. I get it, shit happens, but for those of us who don't RMT. It matters. I really love botting POE and I love the buddy forums and buddy team and I would love to see this go forward. However I think before I could fully commit to it I would need a lot more information of how some of this would work. And since im poor and don't know how to RMT, if I did commit it would probably be one bot and id pay more than likely $10-$15 USD max.
