Faeria Going From F2P to B2P, Cancelling Mobile Versions

In what we're 99.99% certain was not an early April Fools' joke, Abrakam SA's announced on Friday that its free-to-play CCG Faeria will transition over to a buy-to-play model on an unspecified future date. The game's next expansion will be launched on that same date.

In an announcement posted on the Faeria website, the dev team stated that they have sometimes "fallen short of our, and your, expectations" and "haven’t been able to find the right balance to make it [F2P] financially sustainable for Faeria." As a result -- and possibly due to Abrakam having "grown close" to a new publisher -- the game will go B2P while Abrakam works on a new game during 2018.

This will necessitate a total revamping of the economy, though current F2P players don't need to worry about having to pay to continue playing or otherwise lose progression. The new game will be "DLC-based," with new content coming every month. That will allow the dev team to "bring far more new content to the game, more frequently, as well as allowing us to allocate more resources on the marketing side." That extra money, however, won't be going toward the iOS and Android versions of the game, which will be scrapped so the dev team can focus on PC.

So that will just about do it for Faeria coverage on MMOBomb. What do you guys think of the move? Did you play Faeria and enjoy it as a F2P game, or do you think the move to B2P is what's best for the game?

I played faeria off and on for a while. I think they are going buy to play to try to scrounge up as much many as possible before the game dies. They are now working on a new game and leaving this one in the dust.
