you've downloaded the game already or going to download
it and you're wondering, why should I subscribe to Darkspace?
Here in this article will explain to you what you dont
get as a demo user on the newbie.darkspace.net
you havent found out yet, the game is $9.99 US per month
subscription by Credit card. Dont have a credit card?
Dont worry, Darkspace features a number of different payment
methods such as Pay-By-Cash, check, and money order. Now,
its time to get on to the reasons why the subscription
is worth it...

Lets start out with the obvious, lets face
it, the newbie.darkspace.net
server isn't as populated and fun as the admiral.darkspace.net
(Fleet Admiral Server) and the MetaVerse
are. These servers can get up to three times the number
of players that you'd normally see in the newbie server.
On the newbie server you most likely wont have as much
fun or get as much help as you would on the other servers
for those that are subscribed.
So lets face it, you never get to see what
Darkspace has to offer on the newbie mainly because...its
the demo user/newbie server. This leads to many people
just leaving because they never bother to ask what its
really like. Thats what this guide is for.

by disabling its jump drives and ensures a fireworks show.
so you want to know more about the benefits of subscribing
are. Well, once you subscribe, you can start to earn prestige
and gain rank, which leads to you being able to use more
of the ships avaiable in Darkspace. All stats recorded
before subscription will be tallied up when you subscribe
to give you your prestige. Oh and remember, if you subscribe
by credit card or whatnot and dont see your demo status
gone, try entering a server, that'll fix it.
The image on the right is only a glimpse into
what type of ships you can gain access to with time. Now,
its time to get on to the main course of the subscription
meal. Your ships...
a glimpse into what subscribing to Darkspace can earn
you later on...
As a demo user, you'd be limited to the
weakest of the three faction's warships such as the
lower class engineer ship, the scout fighters, and the
frigates. If you've played on the Newbie server before,
you might have noticed that when subscribed users are
flying destroyers, they are most likely going to completely
devastate you if you are alone.
as a subscribed user, as you gain ranks you will be
able to start using the higher level ships soon. Starting
with your first new ship being the destroyer most likely,
you will continue gaining more powerful ships such as
the cruiser and dreadnought and the ultimate ship, the
Support Station. There are several classes of each ship
type for you to choose from. You will also to be able
to use the supply ship when you earn the requirements
