seriously, games are rarely free anymore, and prices per month are going up. I remember world war 2 online came out at 9.99 a month, and now the avg game is 15 a month. My guess is MEO is going to ring in the 15 a month. Any less, and i just might check it out.
no its not free i read there forum website and they said there would be a fee but not sure what he fee was going to be.
WoW EQ2 Guild Wars ?! I cant decide!
The only reason guild wars is free is because they dont really need to support huge servers to hold all the characters all over the world because whenever you or your gorup go out into the world it creates a instance of the area on the group leaders computer.
It is kind of like hosting a game in Warcraft or starcraft, not very much impact on thier servers so the monthy fee is not really needed.
Games like Everquest or WoW where you are always playing on thier servers require alot more maintaince and customer service... which is why they have monthy fee's.. to support the servers and CS.
You have it completely backwards.
In WoW, EQ2, etc, there are many 'servers' to choose from. When you choose to play on one, you are completely cut off from the other 'servers', even though more than one 'realm' may reside on one machine as it were.
In Guild Wars, there is only ONE 'server'.
No matter where you start, you can talk to anyone playing the game that is logged on. There are different 'instances', and in order to play you may have to pop over to whatever instance your freinds are.
But there is no relogging, and you can simply send them a tell and switch instances in about 10 seconds, depending on your computer and connection.
So in WoW, EQ2, etc, you are totaly cut off from anyone not on your server. In Guild Wars you can talk to any player in the game at any time.
Nope Tyre, the game wont be free of subscription i'm afraid. It is said somewhere in the official faq (if only i was not so lazy i could find a link ).If you wan to play free a decent mmorpg try anarchy online (sci fi world)
my 2 cents
source: MEO.com forum f.a.q.s
ive seen it many times on sites and magazines that there will be month fee and it wil lrange between 13$ to 15$ a month....my bets are on 15$
It doesn't matter me if i have to pay a Fee i'll pay it .
it is such a great game.
The reason why prices are increasing is due to greed itself, we all hate the greed...

Not that GW is a bad game, but having played it for a few months now, I'm all for subscription based games.
As long as there's entertainment value, the monthly fee is well worth the cost. Lol, I don't think I've looked at a bartender without throwing down $15.
IcoOh, cruel fate, to be thusly boned. Ask not for whom the bone bones. It bones for thee.
Most likely pay to play, I don't mind that personally. Games just need more payment options than just credit card subscriptions, as not everyone can get one.
