A friend and I discussed this on Instagram yesterday, here’s what he said:
Him: "Global comes out, and it’ll be free. (I know you think it’s impossible for that to ever happen, but hear me out):
There’s no safe way to prevent people from flying to other places, because Laura said that global will replace the current system anyways. It’ll be impossible to prevent someone from taking off from a free region, and going to another free region and landing there, without them going anywhere else. It’s impossible for them to enforce people who didn’t pay, to not fly globally. I don’t see how they can prevent people from flying globally if they haven’t paid. Which will totally ruin the game and they’ll get like $0 in profits."
Me: “The app will know that they don’t have a global subscription linked to their account.”
Him: “I understand but how will they enforce people from not flying out of the region. Like they said before, global will replace the entire system.”
Me: “They’ll still have throttle cut probably.”
Him: “They said no more regions.”
Me: “Oh, you’re right. There’s a lot to think about on this.”
Him: "Maybe there will be invisible TFR’s above the world that aren’t there in free regions, and if you descend past let’s say 20,000 ft, your throttle gets cut? That’s a way. Have no TFR’s in free places, but have them all around paid ones. And somehow the people who paid wouldn’t be affected by the TFR."
We ended it there and now would like to hear your opinions on this, please post below :)
