    April Fools!

    So that's it for April Fools Day 2014, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have! :D

    We are in fact NOT implementing subscriptions, our financial situation is and always will be based on voluntary donations. However if you do enjoy Trident and want to support us you can donate here: http://tridentoutfit.com/index.php/donate.


    Original text below, enjoy :)

    Hi everyone!

    As you may or may not know the Trident Council has been busy planning the future of Trident, and we have reached a critical decision. To continue financing the increasing cost of running the website and mumble server we are going to implement a subscription model for Trident. For only €3.99/month for standard membership you can continue being part of this amazing community!

    However there will be additional perks for becoming a Premium member (€9.99/month)
    • Access to the Premium-only subforum and mumble channel
    • Have all your posts posted in a bright color to increase your opinions' visibility
    • Reserved slot in slightjunky's platoons
    • Instant promotion to lieutenant

    But wait! For one day only you can get a full year of Premium membership for only €79.99 (33% savings)

    Take advantage of this amazing offer and UPGRADE NOW!

    edit: did I mention UPGRADE NOW?(!)

    Re: Trident Membership

    I'm thinking about leaving Trident now. I really like playing with you guys, but I play PS2 almost exclusively as F2P and I don't see the point of spending more money on the community than on the game. No offense.

    I completely understand your reasoning, I know it's not cheap to keep everything running. And I really do appreciate the time and effort you put into Trident. However, AFAIK Trident was supposed to be casual, and this is quite the opposite. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not some cheap guy backing out when something costs money. I just really don't like the way you're heading. The one-time offer doesn't help with that impression.

    If any one of you feels like discussing this with me, please PM me. No need to have a shitstorm here.
     
  11. Re: Trident Membership

    Don't be a fool, it's a great community and worth the money. Sleep one night over it and then re-think your decision!

    By the way. Do Premium Members get a special tag like the "Donator" tag?
    That would be great!

    Re: Trident Membership

    Did you read the post? They closed the "think about it"-door with the "if you buy now, you get a discount".
    Sorry to say that, but this is a cheap trick used in a lot of F2P games if they want to convert non-paying users into paying ones. As someone who works in that industry, I don't have a lot of respect for tactics like that.
    -> This might not have been your intention, but that's how it seems to me.

    Re: Trident Membership

    Is it possible to get a 5 Year-Membership for 350€ ?? That would be nice, cause I got a little $gift from my Company that I transfer to you ASAP.
    Maybe you can discuss that with the other Leaders.
    I think thats a fair offer !!
    So ----- SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

    Re: Trident Membership

    This is outrageous! I hate the road Trident is going down now. You are a disgrace and I hope this will be your downfall. How dare you to defile the Vanu legacy by offering the colour of those filthy TR to premium members?
    If you change the colour to purple I'm sure LordVanu will be mercifull and forgive you for this sin.

    Re: Trident Membership

    This is a really great offer that everybody should accept. There will most likely be ads here and in mumble that you can avoid by going premium.
     
  17. Re: Trident Membership

    so, i have to pay to stay in the community and in the outfit? sorry to say that, but that sucks, really
     
  18. Re: Trident Membership

    WELL if gunne15 is going to get that good of an offer then i'd like to have a 15-year Premium membership. If i have done my math right then if "Gunne15" 5-year membership costs 350 EUR I should have my 15 years for 1050 euros.
    PM the bank account details please.

    Re: Trident Membership

    Yes we will indeed start running ads on mumble spoken at random intervals by the mumble text-to-voice lady. Mostly she will just say UPGRADE NOW!, but may sometimes say other things if there are special promotions etc. This can be disabled by premium members.

    Isn't this part of you guys raising money so the next council meeting will be a real life meeting?
