Give us the proof or I won't believe that it is true until I see from one of the gold names that it is, indeed, being looked at. Without this evidence, it is just hearsay and conjecture.

With that said, I wouldn't be surprised if it DOES go F2P in the near future. I wouldn't mind it one bit as I would be getting free points every months (again, that is just pure speculation on my part and I will admit to such).

We may see some end game content then. It is standard for F2P MMOs to charged for end game Raids/STF. No one is really shocked at this are they? We may even see a improvement in service because failure to perform means no money. I am also willing to beat they will model there F2P system on Champions which means. Stuff like 100% F2P do not get to post in the forums. Smaller Banks for them, Fewer characters slots, Fewer slots for cloths and soon. Lifers will not get burned I hope.

I am saying is Cryptic need to tell people NOW because if they sale LFs know they will be free to play soon that bad PR and they have had a lot of that.

On a side note all in the news use unnamed sources I can not say who told me but they work for Cryptic and thatís a friends job. Sorry LFs subers you should be demanding to know.

With Cryptic's F2P model, it really doesn't hurt Lifers. In the long run, we'll technically be MAKING money, if they go with something like CO.

By LF, I assume you mean LT(lifetime). Either way, the LT sub retains its value in the Crypitc F2P model:

LT accounts are considered "gold" for life.

I think what he means is that sins LTS is still offered some one buying lets say yesterday would lose money on the transaction. instead of it paying for it's self at 20 months , but i could be wrong
