Subscription and Credd
WildStar is a monthly subscription based MMO.  Monthly subscription rate is $15.  As an alternative to paying real money for the monthly subscription, players can purchase Credd from the in-game marketplace for in-game gold.  1 Credd = 1 month of play time.  1 Credd is purchased by players out of game for $20.  This is a free market system that provides both gold to players that want to pay real money for it, and free subscriptions to those who have the in-game gold to afford it.
