    Yes. Just like I have with every highly anticipated MMO that has come out in the past 5 years. In those five years I have graduated to buying the collectors editions of said MMO's. That means Ill probably go ahead and spend however much it is for the collectors edition for this game as well. Hopefully it will keep my attention a lot longer than SWTOR did.

    Whats so confusing? Obviously they dont get their moneys worth from those games. I myself prefer to buy a 0.7 Daniels and have a good evening then pay 15 bucks for some game i think is not worth it. This way at least im entertained for one evening instead of being bored for 30 days.

    If the client is free (I know it won't be) or they charged no more than $40 for the client/box/key then maybe.  Even then, not until after a month has gone by after release.   I no longer feel the need nor desire to keep giving a game company money every month to play something I already paid for.

    I will only play if there is a sub option. A 100% f2p game I will avoid like the plague.  A hybrid model is fine but I prefer sub only.

    You're missing a simple "No" in there, rather than qualifying it with a F2P.

    First This Makes Absolutely No Sense At All. One Most Games These Days Cost More Than $40, Second When You Purchase An Mmo There Is No Monthly Fee The 1St month Its Included In The Box Price. 3Rd You Paid For The Game For A Month With You More Than $40 The $15/Month Is To Continue Playing You Didnt Pay For That With Your More Than $40.

    This might be kind of random. But seeing this post makes me want to mention something.

     

    I remember when i first started MMOing when i was just a kid, and i have been MMOing ever since. But its changed a lot since then. When i use to always subscribe to that One game, play it day and night. It was my Home MMORPG. Yea i had my side touches, the F2P shooter, or the simple games on the side. Even if i went out and played those other games and cheated a bit on my Home MMO i still went back at the end of the night to that One MMO and when i logged in....

    Everytime, It was like the flood gates opening. My whole friends list booming, whispers here and there. Raid invites, people talking to me. Telling me to hurry my ass up and get on vent. When my Home game was truly a home, full of people i knew for months or years. Not IRL, few of them yes, but not even most, Most of them were all made in-game friends.

    I remember i paid 15 bucks a month not for updates, not for any of that shit, All that was just extra for me, i liked it, wanted it, but it wasnt first on my list of why im paying.

    Why i was paying $15 a month, it was so I Can Have A Community To Play With, Befriend, and Enjoy the Game with.

    Other: Maybe but only if I like it a lot in beta. If I don't like it or don't get a chance to play it in beta, then no.

       Wasn't talking about bad games though. (TESO isn't out yet so can't judge weather its good or bad) If the games good enough to spend the time playing then to me its worth paying $15 a month. If your saying your willing to spend the time playing a game that boreing as long as it free then odviously you have more free time then me.

      End point apples to apples instead of apples to lemons. You'd rather pay $15 for one night worth of drinks then $15 for 30 days of a game you DO find interesting and entertaining?

    I voted Maybe but not for the reason's you listed. Professional reviews are nice to get some info on the game, but half the time you can't trust their opinions on it for varying reasons. I'd much rather get in the game myself and get a feel for it before I buy it. I would however prefer a subscription.

    I'm not making assumptions about a game i have not played. The game could be good or it could be a stinker i don't know until i see it for myself.

  • Squeak69Squeak69 Colorado Springs, COPosts: 956Member

    if i enjoy it hell yes i prefer a sub game, if i dont enjoy it then it wont matter cause i wont be playing it.

    one condition though, if im paying a sub you better not have a cash shop that i need to use to get access to shit i already should have access to. thats to evil guilty love child of P2P and F2P. with B2P with cash shop being the evil twin.

    F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used toimage

    The fact is none of these games are worth a subscription fee. The content is cheap, reskinned and repeditive..Now if i get better quality content every month for my subscription or more freedom to create within the game world then i'd have no problem subbing.

    Yeh, it really doesn't matter to me if it makes sense to you or not.  I answered the OP's question and poll with my own answer.  You answer it with yours.  Hardly any western MMO (which is what this is) that has been out for a year or two past  their initial release hardly charge more than $40 for their client.  So what does that tell you? Simple,...I will wait and I MIGHT pay $15 a month if they charge $40 or less for the box.  If you can't understand that or if it blows your mind then woopy doo.

    Sure, if the game keeps me interested ill pay $15. Last game i payed sub was SWTOR. I played for 6 months, with a break, becouse i liked the story and cutscenes. Later i found that game's shortcommings were more annoying then game was entertaining and i dropped it. I couldnt justify giving money to such inept developer anymore. Currently there is no game i would pay for monthly over good booze. On the other hand F2P and B2P games have one adventage. I can play them every other month for few days without feeling guilty i wasted my money on a game which keeps mmorpg genre on this sad level it is now.

    No more preordering for me but if the information available from beta will make me think I could enjoy teso for at least a few months I will buy it on launch day.Subscription is not a problem as long the game is fun,I prefer spending 15 $ on a monthly subscription than on a 2h movie .

    and plenty more,no need to paste those here im sure you will get the message.

    I try to imagine that TESO is the game,not just a game,The Game,like Morrowind etc was.

    it will fight against other puny MMOs like 10 years atleast easily,with its instanced areas and without raids and whatever it doesnt have.

    But theres allready plenty of free to play games doing that,more features less features, but doing the same thing.

    Same combat ,same spells ,press 12345,123456,123445,1234556.

    What I believe,those days are over,people wants more.

    Planet Explorers have pretty much build-in Workshop in game and all kind of cool things.

    Planet infinity gives allready those same chills that Daggerfall gave back then,but TESO on the other hands doesnt give anything.

    Their graphics really doesnt matter much since after few years those are last season anyways,what matters then is the gameplay or lack of it in this case.
