World of Wildstar isn't bringing anything new and I have beta tested TESO which is a pure money grab via the IP name, it isn't a decent MMO or SRPG, its hollowness isn't even outdone by SWTOR which at least had decent storylines. The only game out or coming out that's going to be a sub that will REMAIN a sub is going to be this one...only because the company is Japanese and they would rather shut the game down than try a new model.
TESO will go F2P as fast as SWTOR did and Wildstar more than likely will go faster because NCSoft knows they can make more via B2P, they only allowed a sub because the game maker asked for it.
Well I guess time will tell.

whats the point of voting if you did not buy/play the game. Think thats what the OP was going for....thus why a poll like this really does not good
Yeah, I kinda wonder how many people did just like VassagoMael and voted even though they didn't even buy the game.
The OP did not ask only for those who played the game.
I however only voted because I would have bought the game if it was B2P, the subscription model is antiquated and only still used by companies stuck in the past and I will not support any game that uses it no matter how good it may be.
You would think people would have common sense. While I have my issues with the game everyone knows your just padding the "no" votes if you never even bought the game in a thread about subscribing after the first month.

That was my train of thought as well.
"Everything is mine and your woman too"
I still think FF14 is the best WoW clone, but it is not original enough and not old school enough.
I think the devs have an amazing eye for detail. The way your fishing rod twitches just before the fish strikes the bait, how you can see actual heat haze vapors in the desert, lightning storms, clothes blowing in the wind, etc., are all fantastic little things.
Things like that really make this game feel high quality. And, It's clear that the devs put alot of effort into their work.
The combat was decent and fluid much like WoW. I mostly played archer, so the GCD never bothered me like it did some people(didn't even notice it 90% of the time).
The crafting process was top-notch and probably what I spent the most time doing.
The gathering was dreadfully tedious, boring, and repetitive on the flip-side of crafting.
I enjoyed my few weeks in the game, but I will not be subscribing now.
Quality game, beautiful graphics, but lacking way too many basic quality-of-life features, and there really just isn't enough available yet to warrant paying a fee.
I think it'll be a great game after some more patching. And, I probably would have subbed for a month or two if things like housing and all the 2.1 stuff had been in game at launch. And, man, they badly need to implement the most basic modern MMO features.
Essentially, they should have delayed the launch a couple more months, IMHO. I think it's really going to hurt their retention rates once the free month is officially ended for everyone.
TL:DR: I felt it was worth the $30 box price, but I will not be subscribing.
I can't pass up a poll. You should have accommodated me :P
Free to play = content updates for the cash shop. Buy to play = content updates for the cash shop. Subscription = Actual content updates!
I'm probably going to wait until they implement housing and more jobs that cover a wider play style option.
As it stands - running AK 8 times a week doesn't interest me much.

I think the release day subscription has already started.
Couldn't get in a guildhest at lvl30 yesterday because the instance servers were completely full (healer and tank looking for 2 dps).
Of course we can also look at the graph from TGS showing 13% of the playerbase being lvl41-50.
In short "lack of content" is a problem very specific to a small group of people, and more importantly while it is a real issue for them these people need to stop touting the problem as something universal that applies to everyone of us.
Only a tiny minority of us buys MMO's we don't even like to play.
Originally posted by Shadanwolf I'm waiting for the FRONTLINE patch to decide.
