What Ashley meant by subscription. Was that use of the Signalling server would cost a subscription. C2 would still not cost a monthly fee. What the cost of the server subscription be. I don't know. However it's nice that Ashley will make a small free peer connection amount. This let's people to grow there community before requiring to pay
Your term sounded like Ashley would be charging a monthly fee for C2, which is not the case. And I just want to make sure people knew that C2 will not have a monthly fee. Just he higher peer count for the server. Similar to how many MP servers/api's work not. X free, then cost.
Disagree with you...
A) Never said C2 would be included in subscription. That is a pay once, get liftetime updates
b) According to the blog post, the multiplayer plugin will be an additional subscription fee.
Call it a paid extension.
c) It makes no mention of signalling server. It clearly states it will be for he plugin itself.
[quote:am9afjcr]a low-cost subscription for the full version of the multiplayer feature upon its final release. This is planned to support extended features, including player logins and data storage (e.g. for players to accumulate inventory, achievements, ranks or experience points in a multiplayer game), leaderboards, location-based matchmaking, and possibly relay servers to help connect users who are behind extremely restrictive NAT and would otherwise be unable to connect
The subscription for the multiplayer plugin will support developmental costs (past and future).
