Can i get a copper subscription?
Or can i just play a soothsayer every month?

Am I right in assuming that people who only have base can matchmake against people with expansions?

Probably the client will default to a currency supported in your location, or to a choice of major currencies (for Ozle, if they decide not to support the Tuvaluan Dollar)*.


*Yes, I know that the Tuvaluan Dollar is equivalent to the Australian Dollar but I'm trying to be amusing so bear with me.

If you have a subscription, you will be able to invite others to play with those cards; also when they don't have a subscription.

This is the best news.  A lot of people will be made very happy by this.

Can we get prices in USD? Where are you guys based?

1 Euro is, as of today, 1.045 USD. So basically pretend all the prices are USD and add 5%.

Whoa, what happened to the euro?  A couple years ago it was like 1.3 USD...

QE, Greece, Brexit... and FOMC just raised the FFR yesterday. They actually expect 3 rate hikes next year... so we may be looking at EUR/USD parity in the new year.

Good thing Thief is gone so no one can steal your subscription.

So will there be a copper subscription allowing you only the removed Base and Intrigue cards that your subscription is turned into when you are hit by the Noble Brigand?

1 Euro is, as of today, 1.045 USD. So basically pretend all the prices are USD and add 5%.

So this might be the same thing that was asked about payment options; but will the prices be fixed in Euros, meaning that buying in USD one day might cost a little more or a little less than buying in USD a different day?

Bandit and Pirate Ship would still be able to trash it, though it would be protected from Knights, Giants, Rogues and Warriors.

For those who don't speak Euro, that's $3.15 a month for Gold plus the transaction fee of 36 cents each time you pay.

All of this is extremely reasonable and fair; I'm particularly happy that free play still exists and that you can play with friends. Thanks!

For just a few seconds I misread pay as play.

Man was it terrifying.

Copper is free, so that would be the Base Set.

I'm glad you decided to keep the Base set free after all, I suspect you'd have lost a lot of potential customers otherwise.

Will the system automatically calculate how much I will need to pay in 2017? I can't quite remember which sets I owned before I switched to the subscription system on MF. :P

Looks like it:


Upgrading
While the price for buying is very straightforward, the price for upgrading is a little more complicated.
The client will just show you the price when you're about to buy, but for the curious here is how it works under the hood:

Will you be able to pay in currencies other than euros (e.g. pounds or dollars)?

Nope, just $ and P.

Originally you announced there would be two models: Subscription to play online against other players, and 1-off payments to "buy" the sets for offline play against AIs. Goko spend could be allocated to either buying the off-line product, or giving you free subscriptions for a period of time.

Has that plan changed? Is everything just a subscription now? Does the subscription get you the offline play with the AI?

There haven't been any changes announced. Stef has said elsewhere that offline won't be available until later in 2017, so that pricing presumably won't be revealed until it is nearly available.

On January 1st 2017 we'll go live with our web version of Dominion Online. Our first priority now is to get that up & running smoothly. Once we have that in place we'll continue working on dedicated clients and Dominion Offline, but that certainly won't be released early in 2017.

Hmm, I'm still confused.  My understanding was that customers who had purchased sets from Goko/Making Fun could either get some free subscription time (which seems to be the one-year offer) OR they could get a copy of the Dominion Offline program (which now won't be released until probably later in 2017) to have forever.  If this is still the case, I, as someone who has purchased all the sets/cards, would be interested in getting the Dominion Offline program.  Does that mean I would pay for a Gold subscription as if I'm a new player in January and place my faith in the eventual release of the offline program so I could "cash-in" my "credit"; or, would I be doing something else?

NEVER MIND.  I did additional reading and found the answer to my question (bolded emphasis in the quote below added by me):

http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=16557.msg655927#msg655927

* We're going live on January 1st with Dominion Online. Dominion offline will go live "somewhere" in 2017.
* When Dominion Offline does go live, the group of people with the free subscription will get the option to transfer it to offline.
* The product will never be finished, neither online or offline. We will just continue developing full time in 2017.
  - online will be running in a browser after all. Updating it will go automatically.
  - offline you will be allowed to download the newest version for as long as we make them.
    Off course there will be no need to actually update, because you're not connecting to any other computers, but you might want to, because we probably added some features and fixed some bugs.
* You will be able to buy expansions for Dominion Offline.
* We will show the status of the online client with a couple of streamed games on december 10th.
