Subscription is required to play that is how they tell if you are authorized to play by having a subscription. The 30 days in not a free trial but a subscription bonus like you find with magazine subscriptions( get 12 months for the price of 11 your first issue is free)

When you set up a subscription with a valid payment method credit card or paypal you are not charge for the subscription until after the 30 days therefore your free 30 days.
if you cancel before the 30 days are up you are not changed for the subscription at all.

If you use a gametime card the 30 days is added to the time of the gametime card (ie 30 days gamecard plus 30 days free means 60 days before you have to enter another timecard)
