I don't see wow going F2P anytime soon. I reckon it would go Freemium rather than F2P if it changed in anyway.

Its to late now. WoW is old news. Really far away from todays standards.

It has it fans still. But it wouldnt really grow in revenue

...and yet vastly more enjoyable than the newer news such as GW2 and TSW.

Yeah.. well Cata screwed that one for me.  Worst expansion ever.

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.

I completely agree with you on all points. I hated Cata. I don't think it could compare to WotLK. To me Cata was boring. I really didn't care about Deathwing or anything that was going on. None of it mattered to me so I quit for over a year.

I like MoP. I don't like Pandas but they are something I have gotten used to seeing. Kind of like Worgen. MoP is at least enjoyable. More than can be said for Cata.

A couple years ago Blizzard themselves said that eventually WoW would go F2P. It wont happen any time soon though I'd imagine.

F2P would make their playerbase bigger but I dont see it bringing in more income....WoW and Eve may be the last 2 games that p2p works prefectly for.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

F2P will make any game bigger, better and more profitable yes even that behemoth from Blizzard.  I wouldn't play it because I promised myself 2 things.
 
  1. I would never play another Tab Target combat game again
  2. I would never play a Raid Centric game again.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

It's not a matter of "if" it's a matter of "when".  They are going to watch Hearthstone very closely, if it turns out to be a huge success... it will become the next business model.

originally I thought that there was no projects such as Titan well I was wrong. Here's an article I just ran across confirming another leak of Titan. Hooray!!!

don't intend to play wildstar than as it will have a  soft tab targeting and focused on hard-core players i.e. RAID

You know what would be cool? If Blizz took the next 2-3 years, essentially remaking the game's graphics, combat, and gameplay structure so that it looks more modern, has real time action combat(input priority- none of this animation priority crap), and theres now more sandbox features. WoW could definitely remain in the game longer if they went with a growing MMO trend-becoming a sandbox.

 Bigger, yes.

Better, no.

More profitable, only if it wasn't profitable to begin with and often not even then.

+1  If WOW reborns into and epic action sand box mmorpg,so many WOW haters are going to commite suicide haha.


Basically clicking away text windows ruins every MMO, try to have fun instead of rushing things. Without story and lore all there is left is a bunch of mechanics.

if they have so many subs as "old news" then i think all the other mmo companies would hope to be "old news" too.

do you think blizz cares if wow keeps growing or not? they didnt even imagined that after almost 10 years it would still have more than 6-7million subscribers. they just want to keep it as it is, or at least control the decline to be smooth, which i think they have also done brilliantly.

btw, just check all the "todays news" mmo's and see their sub base. check them were they are after a couple of months or a year max. they all sinked. i dont care about the reasons but hell they sinked

and you know what? if blizz wants it, wow will live for long. if they dont replace it with another mmo, it may have 1/10 of its past subs but it will still live. but i think 1/10 of wow past subs is more than 1 million right? i dont think that there is any other mmo right now with those number, even if its brand new :)

I voted yes, only played WoW beta myself, and it didn't click for me, but free makes anything bigger, but they get a lot of sub money as it is, even with getting bigger, they could actually lose money in such a move, due to the amount of people that are paying a sub now (not all markets pay subs, but I think 3 million or so do).  Also, you would run the risk of alienating a lot of you hardcore customers with an expanded cash shop and ways to try to make the money up.  I don't see it happening, unless the amount of people paying a sub drops to a lower number.

 

 

Older games only age so well, so even though it is the 'king', it will not appeal to many with its style.

Isn't part of it F2P now already? or have I just been mishearing some things?

I would give it another shot to, wait for it, WoW me.  Although I'm also one of those people that hated vanillia WoW. If it did go F2P there would be the normal graph chart that you can pull up for most games that go F2P, from being sub before.

The more I'm around the forums on this site, the more bitter I become.

Wow 1-20 level is free trial so I guess parts of it is f2p technically. If it goes full f2p it'll just overwhelm most servers I reckon.
