    I'm sure people are smart enough to realize that. The money is never the issue. It's accessibility. Coming back after months and still being able to log in without paying. Getting your friends to try it out without any initial commitment. The wish to be a "casual" gamer instead of a hardcore one who feels obligated to play to get their money's worth. The list goes on.

    It's pretty risky when all of your competition is F2P or B2P.

    EQ Next is going to be F2P and will blow WildStar out of the water.

    I just got done playing FFXIV this weekend for open beta. And i am pretty happy that i pre ordered the game already. Cause from what i got to play. It was a really cool game. And from the reaction from the servers. Out of 15 servers. Atleast 12 of them were full and no one could even log in. So I am pretty sure FFXIV will be having a good number of people to pay and play. Including me.

    They should make it like Korean Archeage.
    Free to play with different levels of subscription. Caters to many groups of MMORPGers.
    Friends can try it out free, people can cancel their sub if they're busy and hop on a couple times a week without feeling bad, and the hardcore players can pay a regular sub to have all the features. And if you're in the middle, they have that too.
    I might be wrong but I believe that's what I've heard.

    Subscription and no trial? They're risking quite a bit.
