Froob program 10 years

Post by Lusto » Mon Dec 15, 2014 1:25 am

From Wikipedia:

On December 15, 2004, Funcom replaced trial subscriptions with a business model supported by in-game advertising called the "Free Play" program. Under this program, new players are allowed indefinite access to the full original game without supplying a credit card number. With the exception of the first booster pack Notum Wars, the offer does not include access to content added with expansion or booster packs. Free subscribers are shown advertisements provided by Massive Incorporated, a company that supplies in-game advertising. The ads appear on virtual billboards placed in high traffic areas of the game world. Paying customers have the option to replace these ads with ones for fictitious products related to the game.[53] Free subscribers may also purchase paid points to participate in micro-transactions and purchase in-game items that do not directly impact combat related gameplay.[54]

Totally agree. I never left AO, and am still active as a solo Froob, (Bowgie as a level 200 Adventy and Wigums as a level 200 Engy.) For the life of me, I don't know why I keep coming back.

I started AO the same month the "free play" program started. I can't believe it's been 10 years already.

I can't believe that Afrikaans exist in the world today. That aside, I have been a froob since 2007 and am still one.
