Comment I never knew they changed.I stick with competition (Score 1) 130

Don't see much newsworthy content here. Spotify was sign up before so nothing much changed. (Seems more free PR than anything for them.)

A change to the real competition would be news. Free streaming music without registration.

Correction: 8 miles, which still seems far for the UK. (16 miles is the round trip.)

I think there are good roads so not a massive amount of time needed to make the trip. Being on life critical duty is the reason it is hard.

O.T. The furthest point from the coast in the UK;

Even if your one of the free players you see some players are paying $$ thousands into the cash shop.

Best of all the cash shop items are tradeable for in game items, so free players may not entirely loose out, (but at the cost of farming more.) Latest addition is an alter donation system that may take money out of the games economy by giving rewards to the rich, seems better than the lottery most F2P games have.

The free game give the violence and sex. The cash shop adds the gambling (can you get the rare pet) and drugs (Stamina Savers - double experience.)

Doubt the revenues will be made public though.

If you mean to sign up for this, don't bother. Tabula rasa went "free" but for whatever reason they still needed your credit card number to sign up.

Not for me it didn't. Just a message to their support team as was written. (maybe it was changed after.)
