    Missed detail: with the introduction of the free license, existing 50ccu licenses will be upgraded to the next license type for free. We will mail you about this.

    That’s awesome! I love the $1 or less cost per connection, makes Photon the obvious choice over SmartFoxServer. One thing that would make Photon excel to the top would be some Unity-Photon video tutorials along with the SDK. While I feel like I’ve reached the level where I don’t need tutorials to figure stuff out, I’d imagine that it would being a large mass of users and greatly increase the Photon community.

    Just a thought. 🙂

    Thanks for the feedback. Our focus is less the $/connection ratio but on the technology lead:
    >> reliable UDP and binary protocol (only this allows FPSs and MMOs)
    >> native core and extensibility in C# (for maximum performance)
    >> lean and simple

    Video tutorials: You are right and this is on our roadmap in the next months.

    Thanks Christof, you’re absolutely right, cost isn’t the only thing you guys boast. I’m currently working on a single player game, but I hope to use Photon for future projects.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your tutorials.
