I say ankama shouldn't be to suaded for the excitement of change just because it brings new people. Remember to also think of those still playing and don't anything hugely game changing like adding a refinement system.

We can't even trade non-sub items to other non-sub players. To me, that is major issue. The game needs a reason to be F2P, and I see none. I am F2P and other than group leveling, the game lacks any motive to be social.

I don't see why this game needs recurring sub at all. The current system is fine.

The purpose of recurring subscription is that:
For the players: Gain benefit for being loyal (or whatever better word) to the game, ease of payment for continuing month.

For the publisher: Gaining loyal players
(and gaining some some-people-would-call-dirty benefits from derp quitters.) The subscription's end date is less likely to discourage bored players from continuing subscribing.

With the current recurring bonus, there are very little incentive for a player to choose recurring, thus the question "why bother recurring?" is repeated over and over again in this thread.

So, to Ankama, how could you give the players an incentive to use recurring?
Simple, put yourself in the customers' shoes, try to make yourself happy.
For example:
  • A few tens of cents off repeating months, like 20 cent or so. I think as long as the rate is still a lil bit higher than 3-month subs its ok?
  • Better subscription gift for repeating months. (The pet gift box was very nice. Yay Tofu for 700 kama ages ago biggrin )
I'm not an economic major, much less a marketing one, so I would end my post here. Hope somebody find some sense in it.

I'm a 6-month credit card recurring subscriber but I wish to cancel my recurring subscription and subscribe manually. However there is no option to do this in my Account Management page? There is no 'stop' or 'cancel' button as said in the support FAQ - cancelling a premium subscription.

It feels like I'm locked in and the company is just taking my money without the freedom of choosing when to opt out or keep going. I don't like it.
I've sent a support ticket over a week ago and no reply since then.
Could someone help me out?

There should be a button under the Account Managment's "Wakfu" tab, right under "game time left" (only shows up if you have a recurring sub).
