OP  3/30/13 8:22:59 AM#1

 As we all know there is a new trend for games that used to cost money to go Free To Play, usually it worked out really well, for example tera,aion,lineage2 etc... 

What if WOW went Free To Play? What do you think,the numbers will go rocket hige? or for some reasone people will leave the game? maybe ther will be no change at all?

I would love to hear your opinion  :)

  

Will Free To Play make WOW's playerbase bigger?

Yes!
No!
Wont change a thing.
It will annihilate all other MMRPG's

Only a matter of time it might take another 5+ years but WoW will go F2P at *some* point. It is inevitable.

It won't matter much as the genre will have progressed to where wow will be an obsolete type of game.

Looks like the most likely scenerio,altho it will be intersting if they do a huge game mechanic change in the future,like changing the game into an action combat game...... altho it does not seem possible.

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

If WoW went F2P the internet would melt under the load of people trying to log in, think D3's Error 37 was bad well get ready for Error 666.

Cataclysm was a good x-pac the only thing that made it soo bad was the long dry spell of no content till MoP. The starting of this x-pac was great heroics were tough, raids were fun.

it makes perfect sense if you take into account that although WoW is old news, the standards of most of todays MMO's are far below that of WoW's, thats not to say that there arent some quality MMO's out there, its just it seems to be that some of the older MMO's have something that newer ones don't. Perhaps Richard Garriot was correct in his estimation of current MMO developers

Cool story bro. Wow is the standard.

No bashing wow , but lets face it - who wanted to play , played it.

Its old news

F2P attracts people that are unsure about playing title (aka its new or not that good) and dont want to pay sub.

History has shown that going free to play is a good way to revitalise a fading game. I don't see why it would be any different for WoW. It's been on a downward slide for some time now and most of these huge player numbers fans like to quote actually come from the much lower profit areas in Asia. The numbers of people from North America and Europe who like the game enough to pay a monthly sub have fallen drastically even over the past year. Sooner or later I'm sure WoW will have to follow the money and change to some kind of F2P or B2P model the same as most other games have already.

why do feel that way about Cata?

A few reasons.

Story was boring compared to Wotlk.  The whole dragons disguised as humans thing never really took off for me, Deathwing's story was subpar, and Garrosh was pretty painful too.

Zones were a chore.  The only good one was Deepholm.  Vash'jr was so awful I wanted to poke my eyes out...

Raids were dull compared to the excitement of ICC and its more memorable bosses, or even Sunwell for that matter.

It just felt "tacked on" and I imagine a lot of it was probably because of Ghostcrawler not being good at his job (hell, he even admits a lot of it didn't work out).  Most people I've talked to agree that it was the worst xpac, but opinions vary obviously.  I know it was the one that saw a huge loss of players compared to the previous xpacs.

For the sake of those remaining in the game, I hope MoP is better.

EDIT: If there was one thing I DID really enjoy about Cata, it was the Undead starting zone.  From lvl 1 to nearly 25, the new story was great and easily the most fun I had post-Wotlk.

Most of WoWs subscriber losses have been in Asia.


The big loss after the bump from MoP was pretty much all China.


So ...yeah. Anything else?
