Even though Sir-Tech's original Wizardry games help to revolutionize computer gaming dungeon crawls, I'm keeping my expectations extremely LOW for this title.
I do however expect lots of griefing, killing other players for the heck of it, and / or getting players killed by mobs for some sick players lol's. We'll see.
Of interest is going to be how cheats / bots / hacks are handled. Without an entry fee or any form of monetary loss by getting an account banned, F2P games are a magnet for cheaters. Again, we'll see.
I tend to agree with your last point - games that charge nothing at all tend to draw the worst gamers, the chaters, hackers, exploiters and griefers by the dozen. I'd rather pay for a decent game with intelligent respectful players for the most part then get into a free crap game full of an awful community..
There are just as many people cheating in paid titles than there are in F2P titles. Games like COD, BF, Unreal Tournament all have been plagued with them. There's nothing stopping people from hacking in WOW, RIFT, AION, and etc. There will always be hacks present regardless of F2P, B2P, or P2P. Saying that one has more than others is a matter of opinon. However, I mainly only play F2P games now and I can tell you for fact that I hardly run into hackers and cheaters. Heck, I quit buying COD and BF games because I was fed up with cheaters. Companies will only do so much before they say screw it to stopping hackers.
Infact, I see more companies in the F2P community who are pressing charges and filing court cases against cheaters than the B2P or P2P communities are. Runescape just went through one not too long ago. So did perfect world entertainment. The only thing you get from these big subscription titles is a slap on the wrist at most.
That is the biggest load of nonsense. Cheaters disappear fast in p2p games. I don't know any that allow them around long. On the other hand I see them all the time in f2p games and no one does anything about them. Oh and COD, BF and Unreal are all b2p games.
I second the opinion that this game will be a cheaters paradise.
