I have been informed that I need to post this letter immediately. Most of the other bloggers have already done so, and I’m about to get myself in big trouble for moving slowly. Technically, we bloggers aren’t supposed to criticize this decision. This includes what I say on the external forums as well as in game. Some of the other bloggers have done so, but I’m going to actually follow the rules.
We have some good & bad news. The good news is InnoGames will now be able to give out free premium to all its members for a limited time only. The downside is this premium must be used to pay for the blog. The reason for this is that Rupert Murdoch of News Corp (owner’s of MySpace, News.com.au, The New York Times, etc.) have decided to venture more into online ventures and InnoGames was one of the purchases.
Now that Mr. Murdoch has purchased our lovely game, he has decided to charge everyone to make some money. We regretfully tell you that you that the following payment structure reflects the current Premium Point system.
200 points gives you 30 days of reading, 100 gives 14 days, and so on.
Fortunately, you will not have to link your premium to a blog account manually, since a new script allows the blog interface to automatically find your connected account.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Due to this, we will also be releasing more blogs more quickly to entice our readers.
