So I logged on to my Viridian Day 1 created pirate and triggered the 10 year trophy today.

This amused me because last night I had to update World of Warcraft so that they could begin the implementation of selling Game Time for Game Currency. Pioneers in the field. I applaud thee.

RuneScape did the same thing some time last year.

The micropayment model works. Oh does it work.

This was stuck in here because I couldn't figure out where else to put it since I don't have access to the super sekrit OM forum to just slip it in there.

Thank you. You pioneered the model and now everyone's adopting it, making it easier for those of us who have lots of time but little money to play the games we love.

The forum account was made in 2011, I've been playing since 2004.... I know there's a super sekrit forum. I still can't post in it though.

I actually had this thought a few months ago too.

I'm not a huge gamer, and i was wondering if Puzzle Pirates was the very first to adopt this model?

Definitely one of them! EVE Online allows players to purchase PLEX (which is redeemable for subscription time) with in-game currency, but that hasn't been around as long as doubloon oceans.

I thought Cleaver said in an interview that micropayments were big in Asia, but no where else (for the most part). And that was where they came up with the idea for the Doubloon system?

I forget a lot of things though, so I could be mixing things up.

That sounds right to me. I believe it was something about micropayments being very common for dollhousing type stuff over there and then going off of that?

But yes, OOO was a pioneer with micropayments in western markets. I know Cleaver did a bunch of interviews and spoke at a bunch of conferences back in the day.
