    MICROTRANSACTIONS AHOY! Optional Fee-based Storage Expansion (30/06/2016)

    In the July version update, we will be introducing Mog Wardrobe 3 and 4 as new optional fee-based storage systems.

    We've heard from many of you that your bags are getting to be a touch cramped, and hope that the introduction of these optional, fee-based wardrobes will ease the burdens of adventurers who play a variety of jobs with large amounts of equipment.

    Once again, these systems will be coming to Vana'diel in July.
    Link to the site

    Basics: The fee is £1.40 / $2.00 for 30 days for either Mog Wardrobe 3 or Mog Wardrobe 4.
    * The fee is £2.80 / $4.00 for 30 days for both Mog Wardrobe 3 and Mog Wardrobe 4.

    This contract applies to all characters on the same PlayOnline/FINAL FANTASY XI service account.

    A service account is the new term for POL account, from what I'm gathering from the SS's? So if I 3box, it would be 6$ extra / month per wardrobe?

    Yeah, that sounds about right. They do talk about Playonline/Service in the same breath, and I know that characters are dealt with per POL ID, similar in the screenshots. That would make it per POL ID, yeah.

    I saw the Mog Wardrobe 3 and 4 banner and got happy as fuck!! I read further and then got sad. $4 extra per month isn't bad but I dunno how to feel about this yet. If much of the player base uses it and this somehow translate into a better game experience then I'll be happy. If not, well... shit!! I'll have to say SE fucking up.

    Feels like since the game still going strong they wanna milk it good.

    They added what, mog sack, case, wardrobe 1, wardrobe 2, and safe 2 for free, but all of a sudden need to charge for wardrobe 3 and 4? Yeah, fuck off SE.

    Would have highly preferred a 1 time fee tbh, similar to buying token for mog satchel.

    16.95/mo (+1 per additional character) per account for a 12-13 year old game. Kay.

    Yeah, if it was a one time fee to unlock it would be fine but 2 bucks extra per wardrobe per month per account is just too much for... basically the benefit of not needing to move around gear at this point. Not worth it to me but maybe it is to some people.

    It won't. It'll result in Wardrobes 5 and 6 instead.

    They cut back on development to a noticeable degree and have no more storylines/expansions while charging the same amount of money and expect me to willingly pay more? Not happening.

    I like how there exist people in other places rationalizing the inclusion of microtransactions. They're failing to realize that this is the foot in the door and it will only get worse. We've seen it evolve in XIV (paying for content that you've already funded most of the development for with the required monthly service fee) and we'll end up seeing it happen here too.

    Yea, the items are optional. No, you probably don't need them right now. But ignoring how slippery that slope you're riding down is is a great way to break your neck.

    I have 7 jobs Mastered and walk around 30/80 in my main inventory most of the time. SE needs to up their content game if they want me to pay for more inventory.

    But yeah, bad precedent to set.

    I've got extremely mixed feelings about this, as I've never been fond of microtransactions.

    Then again, this might lead to other services such as cosmetic changes to our character, which might help me get rid of the Hume emo-face I picked twelve years ago when I was 14.

    I could understand if this went along with them significantly lowering sub fees, but by itself it's just pathetic. They clearly put almost no effort/resources into this game anymore, but not only are they still charging the same monthly fee, they want some people to pay even more for it?

    inb4 cash shop trusts, mounts, glow weapon skins, etc.

    If this is a precursor to additional *free* content (or a surprise expansion - yeah... not gonna happen, but I can dream), I'll support it. Until I see that it is - LOLNO

    Yeah, gets a big fat nope from me unless they lower the game to like $5-8/mo, if not outright F2P.

    Cost is too high. Were it a dollar or something, then it could replace paying for a mule for a lot of folks (albeit with fewer bonanza marbles/login point items/etc). At $4 - when most people are only using one main character per account - it's too much. Maybe they've seen a reduction in additional character subscriptions with past inventory expansions, and want to counter it?

    My accounts are dormant as of last week anyway, but this does not bode well for the game going forward.
