Best Andryah quotes you've seen

KarteliKarteli Providence, PAPosts: 2,646Member

I've had personal favorite Andryah quotes (SWTOR official forums) over the past months, but this one takes the cake:

 

It was in reference to the poll where 40% indicated that they would play SWTOR if it didn't have a subscription. (original thread http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=550001)

Quote: Polebreaker:
They continue to read too much into that one exit poll question...
 
Quote: Andryah:
IF it was just the exit poll, I agree with you. However there is a lot of readily available market analysis available on the internet that clearly demonstrates a change in player preference away from fixed subscriptions. Subscription only MMOs are a minority of MMO revenue now and contracting at ~ 10-15% per year when compared to various F2P models.

Sure, those of us who have played MMOs for years on a monthly subscription model sometimes get fixated on it as the only way to go. But that is narrow focused and if all you want is a niche audience it works fine. If you want to tap into a much wider, more casual (casual as in approach to a game, not play style) then you need to broaden your access model. Freemium is exactly that.
 
 
LOL.  I love Andryah's random numbers!  Anyone else find any other beauties by Andryah?  The thread is started, carry on.
 
As you find them, post and link them here!!

    If the SWTOR forums had more then a few hundred people posting on it on a daily basis, she would be a legend.

    If would seem that EA has changed up their marketing strategies.  Instead of Andryah boldly posting, now it is others, who full-heartedly swear by everything EA does, then Andryah agrees, and gives a few comments afterwards.  (Or maybe it's the same person)..

     

    Andryah just has been giving one or two liners recently. one that struck me in the head while I read it was:

    F2P IS NOT FREE in any MMO. Please stop exaggerating.

     

    Guess she never played a Truly F2P game, like Aion or LoL.  Or she considers freemium nickle and diming F2P.  Or was paid to sell her soul ...

     

    Free to Play is not free.   .. Free to play is not free ... keep saying that over and over and you just might be an EA type of guy or gal.
