I recently upgraded my family's free acount under the family plan. We really enjoy the game and the family plan price can't be beat. I wish other MMO's would look into similar plans.

About time. More western MMOs need to adopt more flexible pricing plans.

I think this is a great move. I had two main concerns about their revenue model at start:

1) No family plan - that was addressed recently
2) Crown items were substantially better than any gear one could acquire in game through questing, rewards or vendors (at least for level 1- 20 items). Even if you were a paying subscriber, you still had to buy crowns in addition to your subscription to get those items.

This change to the revenue model ensures that paying members can now buy the best quality items from regular gold vendors that were previously only available to players who bought crowns. Adding the ability to unlock specific streets for a microtransaction fee is icing on the cake and makes for a very flexible revenue model overall.

At this point, I'd like to see them accept gametime cards and paypal and they'd be gold...
