I will never pay for a mod, unless its super good
I would be willing to pay 5 to 25 $ for it but only because of its quality and because it is only sort of like an x pack.
I'd pay full price for a full game based on the work of the FH team.
Otherwise I'd pay about 20€ for the final version.
Though I hope the FH team does not start with this money crap. It will ruin it faster then you can say 'maus'. Thing is, if someone gets money, everyone will want money.
Donations on the other hand are cool. I do not have a paypal account and would actually prefer a different system I once used for software, in which you bought the developer an amazon gift certificate. (think it was like 10€ or something).
Yeah, if the devs ever took this up as their main job, they would probably have to make the game appealing to more people: nerfing the tanks, MGs, generally just reducing the realism level...So we would all be probably waiting for a realism mod for FH. Luckily this will never happen.
ADDED:As for myself, I would still buy it between the 60-100USD price level, a bit more than the most expensive games here in Estonia cost. Considering how different FH is from bf42(and I do believe that the final version of FH2 will differ even more from bf2) it would be worth that money IMO. Although on the same engine, putting it to the same level with road to rome (6 new maps) would be unjustice. Heres something for refreshing your memory:
FH1 felt like a whole new game, thats why I have my expectations set high for FH2. And thats why I personally would pay that much, at the moment that is.(My university years just started and I think that certain activities will drain my wallet quite fast from now on...)
Nothing. Let me explain: I am not judging the "value" I place on FH. These are two different things, "how much is it worth" and "how much are you willing to pay for it."
It's value to me is pretty high as it's a great game, has a good community, and has given me hours of enjoyment.
However, I can say the same about the FreeBSD operating system, my girlfriend, etc. I would be willing to contribute to FH in whatever non-monetary way I can, such as my time, knowledge, effort, whatever, but as long as it's a nonprofit project run by a bunch of enthusiasts I think it's totally wrong to even bring money into it (unless, say, we were to finally discover that FH needs big buff servers or whatnot, but that's the joy of computer programs, you have a PC anyway so your additional cost is nonexistent.)
Now if you're talking about actual FH server operators (WOLF, hslan, TDP, whatever) that you play on regularly, they DO have fixed costs, incurred by bandwidth, server rental, maintenance, etc. Consider dropping them a buck.
They are 2 different things, guess I didn't think clearly when naming the poll. I meant the "How much would you be willing to pay for FH" part. I paid for the expansions of bf42 and if, theoretically speaking (spelling?), we had to pay for playing FH, I would. Just curious how many people feel the same way. About the servers, Im aware that they cost money to run. Hell, I probably should donate some, but Im that kind of a bastard who pays only when he has to:p . Although, after thinking about it, I would donate some money (while I have some left) to the FH team if I knew a safe way...(credit cards aren't very popular around here)
There is no money in world to pay our sacrifices, sweat and tears, so keep your bucks for yourselves
and offcourse my love :D
