Well, could be that they're seeing C2 as something that'll continue to be a viable offering to hobbyists and one-man indies while C3 targets small studios and the like (and anyone not scared off by annual subs). Two products for different market segments.

C2 won't magically turn into cack once C3 hits the store page, so I really don't get all the talk about migrating away from Construct myself, but to each their own :)

Oh... buy obviously. Might be able to put up with subs, on the fence atm.

Annual subscription is not bad at all. Personally I'm ok with either way.

Depends on what you are getting for that subscription. If C3 is fully loaded and working why subscribe to get updates and use the cloud?

I will try out the free versions and probably wait a year for Scirra to get the bugs out of C3 beta and then consider if I want it and if the addons are worth $99 a year.

It seems to be more for console and mobile designers serious about publishing games and making money than the average C2 user that just wants to create and hopes they get lucky with a good game.

what about addons you buy for it?
do you have to rent them as well?

You pretty much lose access to all of your investment once you miss a payment

I'm thinking add-ons won't be available for the web version. I mean, I could be wrong, but it seems like it wouldn't be a thing. I'm thinking those would be available with the desktop version, which may or may not be subscription based. They already said that the desktop version will be available because the web version won't have some of those available features. I'm guessing plug-ins are one of them.

Of course, I'm only guessing. We won't know til maybe next week or the weeks after that.

Think about Warcraft and how it works.
You buy items there, but you can't use them without a subscription.
The case here would allow for use in the free version most probably since its the export that matters.
