No idea, it's more that it's an "early access game" status, I assume once (if ever), it's fully complete, it'll go back to subscription model. But.. that'll be years if ever.

Correction on this... it's not F2P, it's Buy to play, just no longer a sub.

Now that is dedication!!! lol...
I didn't want to see all of the hard work lost. =) Plus, every once in a while I get a wild hair and start working on the area, etc. The entire area is surrounded by trees now in a giant wall of sequoias, and then I looted about 10 carts from other tribes, etc. ;) I still like the game, I just wish it had a lot more developers working on it.

Every time I log on I get my ass kicked by a giant squirrel.
Heh yeah, that's because none of us had any combat skills beforehand. =) But, if multiple of us logged in at the same time, we'd get the skills and not die (as much).

I got the email about this also, good move I think, should bring in new people.
Although I never actually got the chance to play, it looked interesting enough.
