Buy Counstruct2.

With C2 you can create all the games you want and keep the license for a lifetime and IF you want to port projects to C3 you can. If you're a slow learner like me C2 is better since you get to learn at your own pace and master the event system BEFORE you decide to buy C3.

C3 on the other hand, with its subscription license, you're obligated to learn everything there is about it and build as many games as you can within a year otherwise, you'd have wasted $$$.

Tough question really. C2 is good enough to build anything 2d you want but you wont have the nice new features to come (including the easy exporting to mobile if that is your fancy).

If $99 a year isn't a big deal for you I would recommend c3.

Yeah. As of now this is the only reason to get C3.
The collab features that C3 offers will be tough anyway no matter what methods you use.
You're better off finding a local guy to collab with you using C2 than communicate with someone you don't know over C3.

@MPPlantOfficial

Some of the new features are nice but I agree, for now, there isn't a massive difference other than being tablet/phone friendly for development (if I had to commute for an hour each day though this would be a huge selling point for me - but I don't so it isn't).

1 year from now I am certain c3 will be significantly better than c2 in terms of usability (and I love c2, that is an understatment). Based on that I think it's probably better to get used to c3 from the get go if one were new to the scene (instead of buying c2 and then switching over in a year anyway).

I am hoping they add an option to buy c3 without a subscription at something like 5 times the yearly cost (or whatever seems reasonable to them). I would happily pay that much to not be 'on the clock' so to speak. Fingers crossed,
