Couldn't even get through char gen without needing to spend money to do the things I want to do.
Granted I could get through without spending money but that would entail NOT making the char I want. And what would be the point of not playing the char you want in an RPG?
My guess is the game will end up with the same active player base as they had before as people who back only because its f2p are going to be disappointed.
Background: Got DDO at launch, hated it. Retried it a few times, hated it. Heard it was f2p, figured maybe it was worth it for that price. Its not. Game is not worth playing if you're playing it because its free.
They shouldn't call it f2p. Its more UGWUP4P (You get what you pay for play).
