The store is our only income. Just because we're willing to spend personal money to keep Salem going doesn't mean we don't prefer the game to pay for itself. We do contract out a lot of the work involved in updates. I assure you, your perception of how much buying store packs has helped people get ahead is far in excess of reality.

What kind of monies would this game have to make to get JC to focus solely on it?:)

Hahah...learn how to play?

400k can only get you so far up the tree, starting a new char. at 5 in every prof won't help you get the actual good skills.

I could spend under $100 for my group and wipe the floor with early game time wasted. Thats exactly what I'm going to do too if the store stays open for the expedition.
And then I'm going to wipe the floor with mid-game time as I play 12+ hours a day on 5+ diff. accounts just me alone(my groups time not counted) and I will be writhing in late-game on the first week of expedition launch.

We all know JC doesn't develop Salem for money but because its his hobby. He doesn't really care about the money made on this game as he runs his own successful business that is his main income.

------

@TotallyMeow I also suggested goods that can be bought via real money that didn't affect gameplay. So yes, you can still be making money off the new expedition via this.

Why not. Good luck!

IIRC that's why he has little time for Salem development ....

No you won't. Buying from the store doesn't give as big a boost as you seem to think.

Anyone with real game knowledge knows that you are full of **** and have no clue wtf you are talking about.

We are talking about how much it affects early game. (which is why I wanted to not have the real money store available for the first month originally)
I am well aware that store purchases have little effect in mid/late game.

You can think I won't be in late-game on first week but it doesn't really matter what you think I can or can't do. It's going to happen.
