Like others subscription games
Nothing more to say after defaultgen's !
It's like any other subscription game cause you can't play it without deposit unless you're willing pass endless hours sweating (most profitable free in-game activity);
Best way to profit is trading in Auction: buying big and selling in pieces.
The game is fun: good mechanics on crafting, hunting and mining, but excessive armor & weapon decay + amno cost turn it not worthy the time/effort.
