Just trowing the idea here. How about a subscription plan required to use the new online system that unlocks all DLC content while its active, to use exclusively on the racecontrol online. We all know that money is essential to keep those AWS servers running. I would not count on game copys/DLC sales alone would make up for the cost in the long term. I also doubt that most people would pay just to keep the online system running. Imo would be a way to make players see an advantage of having a subscription plan. People would still need to buy the DLC cars for singleplayer, self hosted servers, leagues, etc... Better on the short term for players, to encourage testing the game with good content (lets be honest, vehicles and tracks in the beginner series are nowhere near as good as the DLC). Better on the long term for everybody, devs get a constant income flow, players get a good online experience.
