I think you guys are playing with fire.  There appears to be no development going on, and you want to double the price?   

My guess is AH would lose 25-50% of its remaining subscribers.   I think a price increase would hasten AH's demise.

Hmm, I guess I didn't think that through - if double the price, you will most likely lose some subscribers.  But, if you lose less than 50% of your existing player base, you come out ahead, right?   

I still don't think its a good idea, though.   The cost of online gaming has been coming down, and moving away from subscription-based. 

Nope.  Still think a free base plane/vehicle set is a better option.    Appreciate the discussion though.

Sure, but that has been shot down as a hard no.

Volume or margin; both is awesome, but neither is bad.


Maybe they could advertise at airshows?  Have they thought of that?

Right now, in 2000 dollars, it's like you are paying $8.97 instead of $14.99.

They didn't calculate how to stay solvent at those numbers.

Iíve been rewatching Seinfeld on Comedy Central all day couple times a week working from home. Seeing stuff I missed before, what a great show.
Back after a loooooong break. Old name Ratpak1 (BBS was Ratpack1)

Squad I did the most tours with were The 172nd Rabid Dogs. Still trying to talk Illigaf, Coola, Oldman22, and Joecrow into coming back instead of being boring old farts!

It was a classic.  Right up there with I Love Lucy in the history books I bet.

Except the finale episode.
