This game and the RATS have NO advertising revenue. The only revenue they have is subscribed players that I know of. Many of the RATS and the volunteers do the work because of their love of the game and community.
I see so many former subscribers posting here, and still playing the game, but not supporting the need for revenue by the RATS. The Free to Play option is for newcomers to try out the game and hopefully subscribe. But I see more vets playing without supporting the game and company than I do newcomers.
Come on guys and gals, if you really like this game, then support it! I see so many suggestions for improvements, changes, etc. But no one acknowledges that many of those require revenue. Look at all the volunteers working their butts off right alongside of the RATS! Can you imagine how things might be if they weren't there to help???
You guy spent alot of dollars for good puters, monitors, internet connections, surely a monthly subscriber account will not "break the bank"!!
You want improvements, changes, step up and get subscribed again.
Okay, sorry for the rant, but someone had to say it!
Win with class, Lose with Dignity, Fight with Honor!
