lol, people act like sto going F2P is an uncertainty.
Let me tell you something. STO will be going F2P. Its just a question of when.
The sooner the better imho. It can only benefit the game now.
I'd estimate it happening November / December at the earliest and the 2nd year anniversary at the latest. Most likely the latter date of the 2nd year anniversary to give them time to add more cstore content and game bug fixes / polish, but hey who knows.
The question is more when it will be announced. I think we know from Champions Online how long it will take from announcement to release.
And I don't fear F2P. If it's remotely done like in CO, it can't be bad. (Though it doesn't mean we'll see any PvP enhancements just because the game suddenly makes more money.)
