Instead of a year or month membership, I was wondering if wizard101 and pirate101 could have a life time membership sale for around the price of $80.00 each game. Like the other memberships it could be ended doubting anyone would .
Paying by zone allows you to purchase areas in the game that are permanently accessible by all characters on that account.
Whether you purchase a Membership or Pay by Area with Crowns, really depends on how you think you will play the game.
If you plan to push through as much of the content as possible in the shortest amount of time, then a month to month Membership is the best value for you.
If you plan to play several characters over a long period of time, then a 6month or 1year Membership is probably the best value for you.
If you only have a few hours a week to spare, or will hold off playing for long periods of time, then purchasing individual areas with Crowns is the best value for your time. It allows you to purchase just the next street you need to progress, and once you've purchased an area, it's accessible to all your characters on that account. Purchasing individual areas with Crowns lets you progress at your own pace without feeling like you have a recurring payment hanging over your head.
