I'm still interested to see whether subscriptions and microtransactions can be more than an either/or situation.

From what I know of Puzzle Pirates they built a created ocean/instance to support pay-as-you-go style play, but I'd be pretty confident that they could conjure something up.

Duncan - the idea of a hybrid doubloon/subscription ocean has been previously brought up and discussed by our players, who think of everything imaginable:

There were a number of sticking points brought up in those threads including the fact that you'd have to find some way of handling item trades between doubloon-users and subscription-users.

Currently, we operate two subscription oceans, three doubloon oceans, and one international (German) doubloon ocean.
