I haven't been active in either the game or forums in.. some time. This entire thread is heartbreaking. It's good to see everyone again though, love y'all.

I logged in for the first time in a while to say how sad this makes me. The nostalgia is good but the tears aren't.

I once welded a shopping cart to my old neighbors car.

He was a loving douchebag and tried to poison our dog.

Once a game is paid, you can't undo it.


That would piss off the entire community because they would realize they wasted money.

To be honest, I think that the community would be fine with it because it would give a chance to revive the community. I personally wouldn't feel like I wasted my money because I got my moneys worth back in the day.

not to be a negative nancy, but this has been suggested before multiple times. given the fact, and that badspot's already announced our "borrowed time", in all likelihood badspot probably doesn't have an interest in the game any more, especially after what this community has done. over 10 years old, we're nearing blockland's finale i think.

should also mention that since block party is in development and is gaining momentum, it will most likely overtake blockland if lead in the right directions

So my question is, if he no longer cares about the game why not just make it free to play? If we're really on borrowed time it's not like he's making a substantial amount of money off it anymore. At that point it might as well be made F2P in hopes that the community could possibly revive it. Also, what is Block Party?

Nevermind I see what BP is. I hope that it doesn't actually become a real thing because it looks awfully terrible at its current stage. However, it is in pre-alpha so it makes sense.

forget me, I just made a topic about this in GD like five minutes ago and then I saw this.

oh well

General Discussion / Blockland Should Have A Free To Play Trial Run
« on: July 17, 2018, 10:00:11 AM »
I personally think that with the decline in active users over the past years, Eric should make Blockland Free To Play for a month and see if the community will spike in a positive change.

I personally understand that Blockland is a good source of income for Eric, but for a month it might be worth seeing what the community can gain from it. Sure, there will be an obvious dramatic increase of the *ahem* younger generation, but even then, players are players. It will bump up the servers and with the game being as good as it actually is, people will be more prone to actually give the game a proper try instead of getting overwhelmed in the two hour refund window and just giving up the game.

Here are the overall pros and cons I can think of. Keep in mind, I just woke up so my thought processes be lackin'.

Pros :
  • More than likely, an increase in Player Count.
  • Additional "free" marketing as people are always looking for good free games.
  • A potentially more active forum.
  • Possibilities of newer people wanting to learn to mod and script. Thus increasing the overall game and forum activity.
  • An already helpful community will help new players feel more comfortable.
  • probably more but i'm too tired to think of them

Cons :
  • For the month that the game is F2P, Eric won't get income.
  • High chance of too many young kids coming into the game.*
  • Potentially overall cancerous community. But since the community already is, I don't think it'll be a problem. ;)

* I think that with this, it'll give those kids the opportunity many of us had where we got to grow up with Blockland and learn to love it. So it could be a win-win.

I don't loving know, let me know your thoughts too. It'll obviously never happen but I just got thinking about it.
