I have been gaming for many years and it has been a long time that a game has held my interest more than 100-200 hours but I have now restarted twice and sunk about 250 hours into the game and I am still enjoying myself and feel I have just scratched the surface for the potential there is in this game for PvP, PvE and even roleplaying. It strongly reminds me of early stages of Eve with focus on PvP but sandbox potential for anything.
So kudos to the devs and keep up the good work!
I am wondering though about the payment model. This is an online game and a one time fee does not seem enough to keep it going. So have there been talks about monthly fee or DLCs or maybe just buying cosmetic stuff such as being able to color your ships or new ship models. All would be great imo but being an old-timer I would prefer the antiquated monthly fee.
