    But yeah, I've done way too much in WoW for it to be that fun anymore, and I just think there are superior combat systems out in other games to bother going back.

    As someone above stated:

    "Post-Cata WoW i wouldn't play even for free."

    If Blizzard were to release BC servers for free or B2P, well, maybe.

    I would not play it in a train

    I would not play it in a plane

    I would not play it from afar

    I would not play it in a car

    I would not play it in a boat

    I would not play it with a goat

    I would not play WoW Sam I am

    Sam...  I really don't give a Damn.

    Yes. The only way one can vote "No" is to be currently playing.

    A response of "I don't want to play WoW" isn't very interesting. We already know there are tons and tons of people who have no interest in playing WoW. I'm one of them.

    Besides, you don't think polls on this site actually prove anything, do you?

    And yet you asked, "Would you play WoW if it went B2P/F2P?" Why ask and not give the options?

    As far as Polls here? Most do not give the "proper" responses, so no, most mean nothing at all.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Can you name them please? I understand it's just your opinion, but if I honestly tried to name "better" MMO's available currently, my list would be very short or empty.

    Ditto.

    Same.

    If a game is worth playing for me, I'll pay for it. If I dont consider it worth playing, I wont play it, even if its free. And I started out with WoW in its early days... they just took it in a direction I didnt like, havent touched it in many years now.

    I tried WoW long time ago, paid for box $40 or so, played it one day, got bored. Cancelled. Uninstalled.

    I don't see myself going back to play something I did not play even though I paid for it only because it would be F2P.

    I sort of agree here, but there are a couple factors in the opinion that WoW is a bad game.  First: preference.  There are lots of reasons people might not like WoW.  Secondly: time.  Yeah, I think WoW is a fun game for newbies, but honestly, since I've done just about everything in the game multiple times (excluding the same-same looking MoP), I don't think I can stand even logging in nowadays.  Newer games are pretty much better games to me.  Unless it's TSW.

    Same.  I quit 3 years ago and I think the only way I'd be able to go back is if the game is ending with Sargeras being the mega end boss.  I followed some of the early lore for WoW and I'd love a chance at taking him down.

    That's a lot of muffins. I personally voted muffin because when you look at World of Warcraft and what it has to offer. You can easily conclude that there's not much to the game other than recycled content. There's not much in this game that separates it from many of the F2P titles that exist today. Even if World of Warcraft went F2P. I'd personally choose Everquest over it. Seeing as Everquest has 19 expansions compared to the 4 expansions that World of Warcraft has. Which is significantly more content than World of Warcraft will ever have.

    That's why "Muffins" is on there. It covers everything else. Included in everything else would be people who would not play WoW.

    The point of polls is to generate some interest. Yeah, sure, you might be able to ask one relevant question, and have all the relevant options in the responses, but it's not likely. A "proper" poll would be more along the lines of Survey Monkey or the like, where there's some ability to categorize the responses and see how relevant the responses actually are. The you could say something like, "Of the people who currently play WoW, 0.5% might leave the game if it went F2P with a 3% margin of error." And so on.

    Besides, polls are fun, and Muffins almost always win, so it can't be that bad.

    But you still don't name a game, other than to say TSW isn't better.

    World of Warcraft isn't as good as it was when I started playing in BC, but it's still the best MMO available right now, IMHO, for a theme park MMO.

    EVE might be better if you can get into a good Corporation so you can get into Low Sec PvP. When I tried it I wasn't able to do that. I'm looking for a good PvP game to come along that I can get into, but for now, World of Warcraft offers the most content of any MMO that I have tried over the last seven years.
