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 in 2022 after a loooooong break from 2010. Old name Ratpack, same for the BBS.

Squad I did the most tours with were the Excaliburs then 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. 
  :bhead
Except the finale episode.
