Posted by MikeT23 on 2/2/2013 5:29:00 PM (view original):Every day it takes a world to fill is a day longer until Fox can collect money from everyone in that world again. They might make more money if fewer worlds filled faster. The numbers aren't as dramatic as 80 of 180 worlds would shut.
There's also a financial aspect. FOX can have 100 good worlds and 80 crap worlds. Or 100 good worlds. Why on earth would they want to take 50k out of their pockets three-four times a year?
I buy my 4 pack today. I use one of my credits in a world that doesn't fill until August. Pretty sure my credit card is billed before August.
You buy your 4 pack today for the one world you play in. But that world that takes a month and a half to fill after every rollover. You're patient, and learn to live with that.
You're not buying your next 4 pack until a year and a half from now.
Your buddy, who also plays in only one world, but it fills quickly, buys his 4 pack today. He's buying his next one a year from now.
It's not when WIS gets your money. It's how often WIS gets your money.
