The game will be sold for $60 (includes one free month), with monthly fees ranging from $15 to $11.

However, players can also buy CREDD, an item that extends the subscription by 30 days, for $20 and sell it in-game to the other players, which means players that have a lot of in-game currency can continue to play the game without paying real money. But will this make the game pay-to-win?

Too expensive.

Especially in an already crowded MMO market.

if CREDD is strictly just going to extend subscription then no its not pay-to-win.

Its play-to-play.

I was looking forward to it but I don't see a sub based mmo succeeding at this point in time which kinda sucks because it's the only model that really produces a full quality game. FFXIV is probably gonna flop hard after the first month once all the free time is up, and I don't see this doing much better. It's got several things going for it but not enough to justify the price from what I've seen.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
