i found the above quote from NoeJeko interesting.
because trickster use's click and buy as a payment option, this should mean they are taking in more than 100k a month.
so it got me wondering just how much money they take in a year.

and how much of that would be profit.
anyone has any idea how much it would cost to run those kind of servers.
and just how much do the gm's get paid.
maybe 10-15$ an hour?

It's a interesting idea.

My dad is in the industry so from what I know...

Trickster could be set up lets say with a rack of space for each of the worlds...3 worlds x3 racks...I think per month that would cost a few thousand at the most per rack.

So I dont think the rackspace is what would cost them the bulk of their money. I think maintaining the site and paying the programmers and content developers who come out with new myshop items and events/event items as well as the GM staff of course would cost NTreev the bulk of their expenses.

I still would bet on any day of the week that they make much more than they spend maintaining the game >_>

100k a month just from the click and buy customers? I have a hard time believing that. D:

Maybe TO is grouped up with the other MMOs and together they make 100k a month? >_>; If not damn.

ntreev usa is separate from ntreev in regards to revenue?
i was uder the impression that ntreev pay the content developers, and then pass that content on to ntreev usa.
similarly ntreev usa pass profit on to ntreev?

yea surprised me too.
i didnt ask noe anything about it, seems a bit preoccupied to be answearing questions about click and buy^^
but im thinking the terms and conditions might be different for a gaming company like ntreev than an independent games forum like moogle.
not really sure.
but 100k a month from click and buy, which most people dont even use seems rather excessive.
but if thats the case i can only drool over how much they make from paypal.

Agreed. o.O

Hm, by the sounds of it, Ntreev is making more money than I expected, at a regular basis. I wonder what the server costs/salaries comes down to cutting their income number to. Smells like they could hire more staff without problem, at first sight. o.O;

Edit: Typo. D:

I'm not sure if you worded this just a bit off, but the $100,000 in revenue is for the company overall, not $100,000 revenue coming from Click-N-Buy.

Just wanted to make sure everyone was on the same page.
