Ive been looking for a new MMO...really enjoyed the beta and I've heard the endgame is difficult and very vanilla WoWish.

I can't stand the combat in FFXIV (preferred class has a set, sequential 3 button rotation), so Wildstar has looked pretty good. But this free trial makes me anxious about the state of the game. Is it really in such a bad shape that they need to give out trials within two or so months of release???

Wildstar is horrible, but thats just my personal opinion.

None of the new sub based MMO's are going to last on that model and that's more than my personal opinion its a fact.
If you want proof, lern 2 histree.

Wildstar is ok. I liked the combat, but some of it is maybe too hard-I'm too old to deal with wiping over and over in a regular dungeon, but that's just me.

and?

i used more abilities as a level 5 stalker than I did as a lvl 30 gladiator/paladin in FFXIV. its literally 1->2->3 over and over. To make matters worse....you literally cannot deviate from this combo. You cant hit 3 unless you it 1 and 2.

the state of the game is fine. servers are large and the community is helpful. The trial is probably for those on the fence. Personally i'm always hesitant going into an mmo without trying it cause if i'm not gonna continue and see the whole game it's a waste of money.

Trials will probably get them more money than not... It literally can't hurt them.

its not remotely a bad thing to give away trials for a sub-based MMO

I'd be more worried if they didnt, because that would mean (to me) that they dont think a trial would help the game sell more copies
