Subscribe always has the best content.


Fix'd and often today subscribed is the only ones that actually get content.

Content for f2p mmo's today is like a single dungeon a year, maybe, if you're lucky. When you're income is focused on a cash shop instead of the content why would anyone be surprised when there is no reason to actually work on on content?


1999 = most people never finished an expansion after a year.

2013 = Everyone caps, gets best gear, and does all content within 2-4 weeks......and quits after dropping $500 a month on the cash shop.

I prefer the sub model. I don't enjoy any F2p MMOs. The content, support and community are much better in the sub model. Good news.

I'd much rather that than micro transactions in a free to play model or the model that GW2 had.

I gave GW2 a try, didn't make it past level 12. Just not my cup of tea. Has the game received constant updates? The only MMO I really extensively played was WoW and Shadowbane ( LOL ) back in the day. WoW received a ton of content, I assume they still add dungeons every few months.

Early on.

As soon as I saw people talking about this, I was like "Seriously?" Every ambitious MMO STARTS subscription-based but then they learn their lesson early on.

Yep. Everyone should just give up and get on their knees for their God that is f2p.

I wouldn't mind subscriptions, if the game up front was free. But it won't be. It'll be pay for the game, then subscription.

Did you ever actually read trade chat or Barrens chat in WoW?
