Though I'm not a big fan of subs, I don't let payment model get in the way of having fun.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

New games should offer a free 7-10 day trial and if you like you buy the box and pay a sub.  If not, f2p. I'm tired of paying $50-60 for games that are not worth the money.

I haven't paid a sub since Earth and Beyond.  Not that I wouldn't .  But the game would have to be pretty damn good.

 

Other than that,  I will pay in whatever manner it takes to play the games I want to play.

People do that all the time with spg, but doesn't seem to be a problem until it is a mmorpg. I do agree that a short trial would be nice before dropping cash for box, but doubt too many AAA companies would do that and limit their initial cash intake. I prefer a sub, as if game is compelling/good it would keep people from jumping around like they do with ftp games. Better for community and number of regular players overall. It's just too bad so many mediocre to bad games get released. I wait for reviews and let a couple weeks pass to get a better idea of if it's my kind of game, as well as fixing bugs, before I buy nowadays. AoC was last game I played from day one, as they lied about content and what worked, etc. Too many games are not finished for release, so I wait.

I prefer a sub. Having played MMO's since 1999, and also f2P games in there, Subbing to a game ensures you get what you are paying for from the developer. All these restrictions I hate having, so I just pay. I also think that games that are pretty much sub only have a higher quality than games that don't.

Here we go again.

 

You have absolutely no evidence to prove any of that yet you state it as if it was fact.

I suppose my favorite model would be buy-to-play. I really don't like paying a sub fee, as it brings with it the feeling of needing to play the game. If I miss a day or two of play, I feel really guilty for wasting money. I also like free to play with a lot of interesting costumes for real money. Not gear with stats or anything, just really cool looking outfits for your character. TERA's FTP model is really good at being fair, pretty much just offering tons of cosmetics at reasonable (in my opinion) prices.

Though if a game is buy-to-play, I would like a trial as well. Even if it is just a 24-hour trial.

On the eternal quest for that one perfect MMO.

I won't play anything without a trial anymore, I've played too many games that weren't even worth the time to download them. Developers have to earn my money and if they're not willing to provide a trial, I pass.  After that, depending on the game, I have no problem with any of the various models, assuming the game is really excellent, which virtually none of them actually are.

Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
Now Playing: None
Hope: None

B2P.

 

Subs only seem  worth it to me when I feel like playing WOW.

 

F2P models are horrible imo.

I prefer the tiered system: Free to play, plus premium monthly with perks.

Sub only now. A few slipped through because I thought I could excuse them for gameplay but it always came back to a good reason to leave and when I had a problem with something else it played a part in making up my mind to go.

If I want to know what a free to play game is like for conversation I can see videos on it or forums but I never download it. It's principle based now. I think consumers have to avoid what they don't want. I've thought about being a leech on the free games just to annoy them but don't even want to waste my time sabotaging them. Saying your game is free to play now is like saying you have 17 STDs and want to have unprotected ... yeah. It's fairly easy to avoid them even though they are the majority.

 Feel guilt over waisted money? Seriously...like 15 bucks a month. That comes down to 50cents a day or less. You feel guilty for maybe loosing a dollar once a month? Think of all the other ways money is wasted. I think a sub for a game is by far the cheapest entertainment value there is.

I am really fine with either.  Buy to play, like GW is good. Paying a monthly sub is fine by me too. As I stated, for the hours of entertainment for the price of a monthly sub, is fairly cheap. And P2P keeps everybody on level playing ground. 

But with the current state of most MMOs  just being the flavor of the month...none as of yet have encouraged me to P2P.  Not since UO n SWG.

I get my money once every month. I like to take care of things then, instead of having to dole out all throughout the month. I prefer subs. Pay and be done with it.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

I play one MMORPG at a time and will commit my gaming time to it fully.

The #1 prerequisite I have is that it be subscription.

The same here. If I feel the value is there for the type of payment they're asking, I'll pay it.

At first I liked the idea of FTP but then I realized that I spent too much of my game time worrying about money and the restrictions so now I like either subs or BTP.

I like sub-free as in, not locked by a subscription. The rest depends on how the game is setup.

I like how Guild Wars 2, Tera, and Rift are setup. Those are my favorites. TSW is pretty good. EQ2 isn't bad now, but not my favorite. Cryptic's model wouldn't be bad if they didn't charge so much for their stuff. I'm not a fan of Turbine's, Conan's, or WoW styled models.
