i played quie a bit of WWII:OL a few years back (the graphics were bad then, and had just been overhauled)...

the depth of the combat/strategic system is/was lovely and engaging, but i really couldn't justify paying the sub fee anymore.

it's not that i mind paying for a good game, but i just felt WWII:OL's time had passed. recently, i've put in some time in the Heroes and Generals beta. it has similar mechanics with a strategic map, and great 12v12 (soon to increase to 16v16...and more if they can manage). many vets from WWII:OL have gravitated over. it is (will be) F2P with a very fair system that doesn't involve P2W transactions, and the graphics are gorgeous despite the fact that it runs chiefly right in your browser.

although i have been tempted to return to WWII:OL with the (very limited) F2P system, i've decided to move on to H&G. i have even invested real money in the game via their very creative War Bond system. MMORPG did a nice write-up just last week, i think, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun has also had very nice things to say. go apply for the beta, as i think they are looking pretty aggressively to expand the test-base.  

cheers!

Yeah, free-to-play is pretty much useless unless you're an infantryman or in the early stages of the war. Why people keep trying to push F2P as a viable solution is beyond me. It's still just a glorified trial. But if you weren't aware they do actually have the $10 plan now which -in my opinion- is somewhat reasonable. Though, as you said, you feel your time has passed with the game.

 

I played in the early stages of G&H and it was quite a bit of fun. Hopefully like you said in the future they increase the player numbers (which I think they said they were planning beyond 32 players) as that's a pretty big concern. And a lot of ex-WWIIOL players have made their way to that game. Great fun playing with them.

Again, until the rate is dropped (really dropped not tricky get ya back illusion drop) to $8.00 per month no one is going to stick around in large enough numbers to keep this cancer patient alive....

F2P and the general playbase now even changes the dynamics of the game and whether it's worth it.  After the crash of the squads and the vets leaving, ATG usefullness took a dive.   Not much point spending 10 min getting that perfect ATG spot for the incoming armor when everyone will pile into tanks and drive past you to be first and fight the enemy before they are all dead.

I think that's a lot of the issues when some folks see the game as dead and others as still being fun.  Lots of it depends on the gameplay you were looking for and/or the units that were your fav.   Last time I played I know it sucked a lot of fun out of it when being an ATG on a reverse slope defence at Chimay, I watched tank after tank driving past and going over the ridge to die instantly.  The one 'team player' who did it repeatedly and reported to his squad that 'yep enemy tanks still there' and then finally 'we're out of tanks' capped it off.  It was that type of FPS zergfest I started playing WWIIOL to avoid in the first place, it was fully worth the $15/month at the time to get something different.

Damage model, one hit kills etc. are all fine and dandy, but if the actually play from the players is going to be like any other FPS, big deal.  If I'm going to get regular FPS style zerging (and from what I've seen currently, I see better squad work in Planetside2 in the beta vids) in WWIIOL and one is totally F2P and the other isn't....

Let's look at an approximate competitor:

 

As it's planned right now Planetside 2 will be 100% free-to-play with the option of paying $14.99/month for additional benefits like XP/resource gain and some cosmetic stuff. F2P players will still be able to make microtransactions if they want to boost themselves but don't feel like committing to a subscription.

So some obvious problems are:

--WW2online is charging 20% more per month than a brand new AAA title.

--WW2online isn't really a true free-to-play game as you aren't given access to all or even the majority of major items and abilities

--There isn't any way for a F2P player in WW2online to make a minor purchase for some reason, like in order to be able to create missions.

 

I agree at the $7.99 subscription level. They should've also had a free option no later than 2010. I can't remember when they changed it but for the longest time even a trial player had to provide a credit card number which was a huge recruitment hurdle to overcome. Since their point/rank system is so flawed they cannot hope to monetize that aspect of the game.

 

DOC always claimed to have the raw numbers; I wonder if they ever analyzed the impact dual accounters had on gameplay. After the price hike and the doldrums post-2010 I dropped mine, and I held off longer than a lot of other players.

I don't agree with this.  $8.00 is too much

 

Free is too much for this game.  I'm moving on to something else after losing a large amount of money to their false advertising and cell phone termination contract trick.
