No, it definitely was right. The OP obviously knew something we didnt, so just because it wasnt yet confirmed to us doesnt mean it hadnt already been confirmed to him. But either way the transition to F2P has been in the works for some time now so the people on the inside knew, and the community team intentionally made misdirecting comments to try to throw off this thread.

The raptor makes a very compelling point. This thread was purposely placed in Ten Forward and described as rumor mongering.

This thread, however, was correct. And not rumor mongering.

This thread is awesome!

Every thread that stated F2P was "guaranteed" has been proven true. That doesn't make spreading rumors any better

It also doesn't mean the OP of those threads were telling the truth in the full sense. Simply because someone claims something, and that happens to come true, doesn't mean they foretold it. A lack of evidence to support a claim, even when that claim turns out to be the truth, is not certified proof that the claim was made based on anything other than an attempt to rile up people in the forums. Which is what most of these F2P threads were.

The OP likely knew something we didn't. However, it's still entirely plausible that the OP saw any of the Grand Nagus' well argued F2P posts, was convinced, and made up his "confidential source" and guessed. Until we see a chain of evidence we'll likely never know, and not really care that much since it turned out he was right.

I heard a rumor that McDonalds is going to change their Happy Meal toys to be themed with an upcoming children's movie, but I can't reveal my source.

The difference between this thread and the others is this one named a very specific time period while others have always been vague. And another key point is the OP of this thread said that the exact date was not set in stone, and that also proved true. How could he have know they hadnt already come up with a planned release date if he was just guessing? Those are 2 very specific details that were both correct.

Indeed

and am I the only one who suspects wishstone had a a part in leaking this information? think about it, someone makes mention of some inside source telling him the game is going free, wishy posts but doesn't deny it and suddenly she quietly gets fired (and yes its pretty clear given the fact no mention of her 'leaving' was made till someone actually noticed and brought it up, that she was in fact fired)
