Where are the Money Bags From?

So I may just be a lazy butt who hasn't found it yet, but how is CCP going to make money?

Is Nova going to be F2P like Dust 514 and the biggest incentive will be boosters? Will it be like Cs:Go and Overwatch in that you do have to buy the game, but then you have the option to buy cosmetics? Or is there some other route that CCP will take.

Put your flags up in the sky. And wave them side to side. Show the world where you're from. Show the world we are one.

A monetary strategy for Nova has yet to be given. All that had been confirmed is that Nova may not be F2P.
From what I've been hearing though between Rattati and Pokey's updates from Rattati, I am guessing a shorter release than what was planned for DUST. If that is the case, signs point to retail release for me but I think CCP doesn't even know at this point.

I don't troll; I tell the truth.

I'm also known as "The ANTI-Propaganda Machine".

CCP wouldn't want you anyway then.
No one rides for free...
...except in EVE where you are just fodder for the Omegas.

I am kidding, of course, as Nova still has a chance to be F2P. As for what I said about EVE, that is totally true.

I am thinking this.

Hand/Eye coordination cannot be taught. For everything else there is the Learning Coalition.

Do you expect to still be broke in two years?

I think they should pitch it around $15-20 with cosmetic microtransactions. You'll avoid the P2W tag and put a barrier to entry for hackers.

Maybe do a limited fixed class free-to-trial game mode

Make it buy to play. Then sell cosmetics and trinkets ingame.
Then pay for dlc. Offer collectors edition of dlc.
Offer specialized subscription option.

My thoughts only.

What's the point of buying it if you have to pay a subscription? Also, wouldn't a subscription invalidate DLC?

Subscription is for added bonuses.
If you subscribe you dont buy dlc you have access to play dlc as long as you subscribe.
You get free monthly booster and consumables.
You get 50% bonus sp points.

Non subscrubers buys dlc.
Buys boosters ad consumables.
Dont get sp bonuses.
