Will we see a huge flood of new accounts, or just a few hundred jump on deck?

I know when DCUO went F2P, they had a huge jump in players, and the wait time to log in put people in line of 4000 at times. Will this happen in STO?

Well it's far better than the 1st week of F2P on DCUO, that 4000 count to get in was nuts. I just hope we don't see that same type of que line to log into STO the day it's fully F2P, I know a few Trek fans that told me, they wouldn't play until it was free, now that it's going that way. My friends are getting ready to rock, and their friends and so on and so on. lol

The one thing when things go to F2P, is to expect the unexpected.

Most games after going f2p see a drastic increase in numbers. I can list several mmos who did this recently and became much more popular and successful. Also, people who have criticized those games, have started to like them more.
Will this happen with STO? Yes it will.

One smart thing they did was to open up the ftp gates for prior subscribers early. Let them get in, check things out, and decide if they want to continue before the ftpers with no prior experience get into things.

When Age of Conan went F2P, Funcom one month later had reported to the media that 300,000 new accounts were created since.
