Honestly, I am not willing to pay $29 to use VP. $2 would be great, $5 would be acceptable and $10 would be pushing it. But $29 is too much for me. I know I am not the only user who will be departing VP; the average amount of games in the lobby has shrunk from 20 to 3.
If you are not going to lower the price, may I at least suggest allowing us to use all Standard or all Modern cards? VP is useless beyond THEROS BLOCK if that is the case.
The reason we use VP is because it is cheap. If we wanted to pay money for our cards, we'd join the huge marketplace that is MTGO. I am very disappointed.
I would be surprised if many people buy the full version. By raising the price so significantly, you are losing a huge part of your audience. That takes the vast majority of players away from the lobby. When there are less players in the lobby, it is harder to find a game in the format you want, and people will become frustrated and leave. I will not be surprised if Virtual Playtable is a ghost town in a year or so if no changes are made.
