    Already bought the box so I'd be fine with either.  I think they'd have more success with a flat-out F2P model.  Friendly one - not SWTOR-esk.

    F2p, sure. B2p if $15 or less

    I was having a great time until I was hacked and lost all my pvp gear. Yes, partially my fault for not using two step authentication.  Still blame carbine for the widespread hacks that occurred though.  This is probably the sole reason I don't play it today.  I actually like the combat and the mass hysteria that were battlegrounds.  I still haven't found a class in any other game that I liked as much as my chua esper.

    Would I play if more people played? Definitely.

    B2P? Surely not. F2P? Most likely still no. There was nothing that really held my interest when i tried it in beta. Played like 10 minutes.

     

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    I hated it in beta too....it's a LOT better now. Try the 10 day trial, you might be surprised. I still don't play it full-time but I definitely dabble.

    If they drop subscription or made it optional, I hope they go with a B2P GW2 model, and maybe an optional subscription with an authenticator style aura that increases random loot quality, currency, money, and reputation by a nice margin (like 15-20%).

    I wouldn't play WildStar if it was free. I don't dislike the game out of principal, but the novelty of a cartoon-infused game could barely hold my attention as a mobile game, let alone a fully fledged MMO. I can think of other tasks, less menial, to occupy my time with.

     

    As for ESO, I wouldn't play it for free solely out of principal. This mosaic of bad ideas and poor decisions feels nothing like an Elder Scrolls game to me. Core elements of what everyone wants in an Elder Scrolls game were either planned as later additions to the game or tossed aside and labeled as unimportant.

     

    These companies can keep their games, free or otherwise. Make what the people want and have a steady income, or make a pre-order cash grab that later turns into a freemium game. It seems to be the way to do things these days.

    Considering I didn't like the first 30 minutes of it I played in beta, probably not.
  • grimalgrimal Member UncommonPosts: 2,910
    Absolutely.  I found the game to be a lot of fun.  I am hoping it goes B2P versus F2P (and I have a hunch it will be the former).
  • OhhPaigeyOhhPaigey Member RarePosts: 1,513
    I play most games if they're free, usually only for 30 minutes or less lol.

    B2P yes!! F2P never!! SWTOR ,LOTRO left a very bad tast in my mouth. Hate how developers spend 90% of there time making stuff for there ingame store and not game content!
  • orbitxoorbitxo Member RarePosts: 1,936

    Its obvious carbine has totally lost leadership- and release a backass promotion tactic such as this.

    shame on them- and still they havent even adressed their whole angry player base.

  • TorvalTorval Member LegendaryPosts: 19,934
    Sure. I already bought it and the game is fun, so yeah. I hope it goes B2P and not F2P. I really like what I've seen with B2P so far.

    Either its B2P or F2P i m going to play it alongside many of my friends who are waiting a long time for this change. My only wish is to stay away of a SWTOR like model which i hate the most. Any of GW2, ESO, TERA, Rift models are more than welcome.

     

    My personal preference is B2P / F2P with optional sub, fluff cash shop (housing items, pets, toys, costumes & costume slots, gathering tools,  dyes, mounts & mount customization items etc) and maintain CREDD in order to exchange real money to gold.

    i  think I might try it once more if it goes free to play. I  took a part on  beta release but left after a few hours. Those themeparks are tirin g me so much sadly. Anyway -  I hope it was updated alot by   this year and will give much more fun than last time.

     

    I guess new servers will be popping now, or?

    Game has changed a lot since launch and its in a very good state anymore. Drop 5 is coming in a few days with even more content and additions like pets, toys, contracts, D3 like wardrobe, raid, zone, new UI etc.

     

    There are 2 megaserervers in each region. 1 PvP + 1 PvE so there wont be new servers.

    I really wish they would release a multi-gathering tool so I didn't have to use a mod to do it for me. I mean, that's something I would pay like $10 for.

    FTP I will install it.  BTP probably not.  I tried beta, and it didn't impress me as much as I thought it would.  I am playing too many games already, and trying to make room for another one means giving up on a different one.
  • sschruppsschrupp Member UncommonPosts: 578
    I'd definitely play. I keep a WoW sub since my fiance likes to play that, so I just didn't want to pay a 2nd sub for a game I wouldn't play as much. Otherwise I had a lot of fun in WS.

    No.

    I wouldn't play Wildstar even if they payed me to play it.
