So many reasons really. The core population still has a big enough pool to grow. The game play is as good if not better, so that keeps me around. The social aspect of it? Well you can find a large group of opinionated assholes anywhere on the net.

$25.00 is a great deal for the game play offered. The mistake is when you think it buys you a free ticket to be a douche on the forums.

Membership is down due to a number of reasons; I don't think the "cost" of premium is a driving factor.

from what I've seen, many forum users are freemiums and many of those have been lifetime freemiums. So I'm not sure why CC would be real concerned about their point of view, I wouldn't if I ran this site... there are milions of places to chat on-line... the forums don't drive this site, premium members do, but often times it's freemiums (not exclusively of course) that do the most whining and complaining... Could CC be imporved? of course... but pandering to people who put nothing in the coffers seems illogical at best....

and $25? wow, that's what's keeping you from being premium? where can play a game for 5 cents or less (when you average it out)? right.. nowhere... the price isn't the factor...

good point, but irrelevant.... even 40 a year hear would still come out to less than a dime a game (if you played fairly regularly)... it's comical to think 25 is too much you cheap bastards...

AoG refuses to pay premium not because he is cheap but because the voices in his head told him not to. Wouldn't you do the same?

It would help , if on the first page when u log in is something like a company profile,
like the founder himself ( can be a fake picture of him if he is worried about his privacy ) telling his story,
when and how he started CC, what was the motivation behind it .

Just a little personal touch, to give this first page a personal feeling and soul, istead of come and play here some games.

and to list the crews, who's doing what at CC.

maybe i m wrong, what do you think?

Plus some of us live in other countries where exchange rates really screw us over. for example 25 USD is approximately $162 in my currency.

yeah Tee Gee its rough and I'm sure its as bad or worse for other users also.. then there are those who quite simply cannot fit it into their budget even if it IS only $25... etc

I just signed up and paid premium two days ago. One thing (as a new person) noticed, was the look and feel of the site. I was immediately turned off and luckily I kept the tab of my browser open as I continued to search elsewhere. I found the old site I use to use (Global Combat) and noticed the tons of ads they've added on since the last time I was there and the lack of members. So, I came back to this site and signed up. During my first game, I decided to buy the premium because of the actual game play and multiple maps. So overall, I think the look and feel can put people off.

The look and feel is something that I actually like. I dislike how other sights are overly flashy, or way to ridiculous. I can play this, and it looks like a normal site with a clean navigation and layout.

I am in agreement with MoB Deadly on this particular issue. I'd rather have great gameplay than anything else, and would rather that be where the focus is.
