Very informative. From the producer of the greatest PC game ever created (and best mmorpg comeback in the industry history).

Too bad endgame in 14 is way lacking and not worth 13$ a month to play right now.

This was already known. There is not one free to play MMO that's better then a sub based MMO.

Even GW2 is not as good as a sub based MMO. ITs not even as good as GW1 which was free, but had pay expansions which gave some cash flow to make good content unlike living world.

Did you seriously just say the FF14 is the greatest PC game ever? I hope it's in jest.

Because I'll be honest...no way a MMO AND a Japanese-made game could ever be the best PC game.
Yeeaah...Somebody must've killed Darryl. Cuz that's what the guy had said.

Bleh, I personally find both Neverwinter and Rift more enjoyable than WoW and FFXIV

It makes perfect sense that a subscription-based model should be able to deliver better content and a better experience than a F2P model. I can't see any flaw in that logic.

Well to be fair, Rift was a pay to play game at first so its of better quality then most free to play games. Neverwinter almost feels like a actionrpg/online, its not quite MMO, buts it quite Diablo either.

Monthly subscriptions make sense. $15 a month is a bit high, but whatever.

But it doesn't work well anymore. Because greedy developers want a subscription, plus buy the game, plus buy expansions, and then put in a microtransaction shop.
