I'm tired of all these game being "free to play" / "Buy to play" , it simply ruins the game, the whole mindset of the DEV's will change depending on what pay model you use. Look at GW2, it's a great game, has decent amouth of content, but it's aimed at the casual crowd and the cash shop has too much impact on the game. Simply because you can buy ingame currency for real money and if you've played it it's obvious alot has been designed around not letting the player farm.
B2P can be good, but at the point where you let people get ingame currency for real money and in game currency converted into cash shop money, the mindset of the DEV's change, there will be more restrictions on farming, the amounth of money you can make from just playing.
IF Wildstar goes for B2P, I really hope they won't let you buy ingame currency llike GW2 does.
Enough of my rant, I just hope they make the right choice and as it looks right now they cater to the more hardcore/end game experience and I doubt they will do what GW2 did.
A B2P model won't bring enough income simply by having services(name change etc.) and cosmetic items only unless you are League Of Legends. Ofc you can say, yes it will, but not really. If the DEV's have to put out exp packs, monthly and weekly changes as they have talked about. Raids will have changes every week. You need to have a steady income and B2P just won't give that.
I guess my opinion is pretty clear, what's you'rs?
