I see A LOT of games going F2P the reason is that the people who don't want to pay can play like everybody else its like a extended trial account but the F2P players can still get to VA albeit a little more effort than the subscribers. I have seen a game that I played for years going F2P. You DO have to realize that this is a business at the root and the owners/developers will do what they feel will enhance the profitablity of the game. We might not like it but put yourself in their place, they want to keep their jobs and if F2P helps that they will do it. No matter what happens I am glad I bought a lifetime subscription for me it was well worth the money.

I just hope that the dev's look at what happened to Star Wars Galaxies and learn their lesson. I do like the simplification of the economy, Marks, badges and emblems was getting confusing which vendor took which. Or as Mel Brooks quite aptly put "We don't need no stinking badges"
