Nope. But that's not a comment on ESO's quality or content. I'm just not inclined to spend a monthly fee on online games.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

Where on Earth do you live? It's like $7.50 here 4.50 for a matinee and then upwards of $15 for Imax 3D. I also can say I have not gone to see a movie in over a year again simply because some of us can not afford those luxuries.(Being a college student sucks)

in the city i live in its $12 a ticket, plus if you want popcorn and a soda you are looking at $8 more.

never mind that, how about going to the bar on Saturday night? i can spend $60 easily on food and drinks.

in the end mmo's are entertainment, just like anything else.

i would argue its far cheaper to spend $15 on a sub and not go out as much.

Little misleading I think - The general estimates so far seem to be around the $12 mark but we'll see.

 

There are billions of these polls out there - you need to take a look on the forums etc. What I've seen so far though is that in most of them 70% of players actually WANT a subscription game.

 

If those numbers actually pan out, I wouldn't expect it to EVER be free to play - or at least you guys will be waiting a good few years ;)

i doubt they'll make it sub-based.

a big portion of TES fans play single player games and not mmos.

all of them would play a Buy-to-Play TESO, but only a few a Pay-to-Play.

 

smart thing to do is have it B2P with a cash shop. (not selling RvR-related items of course)

It'll be subscription based and will charge the going subscription rate.  As long as the game is fun I won't mind playing it, when it ceases to be such I'll stop.

I can understand that people want a free (or relatively free) game, but it's wishful thinking.  The budget of the game itself rules out F2P models as their return is not guaranteed to a budget this size, and though B2P could be an option with a supporting cash shop it's still unclear as to whether a game with this cost would be better served as P2P or B2P (Guild Wars concurrent user information is still nowhere to be seen, and it's sustainability still being watched by other companies).

I understand money is tight for many people (it is for me too!), but P2P MMOs are still one of the cheapest forms of entertainment for me at the moment for the amount of enjoyment I can garner from them.  Their cost over the last 12 years has risen more slowly than any other form of entertainment (one price rise in over 12 years and most of that was a change to tax legislation for the UK).

I also don't find pure F2P games that entertaining for more than timewasting when bored, many are very restrictive or mind numbingly grindy (far more so than games such as EQ back in their day, that were demonised for such), and I find 'freemium' to be little more than a trial, as you will sub (or pay through the nose) if you play long enough.

ESO 15/month:

hmm, if it's a sandboxy game, I might if it's good. if it is themepark based with instances and another gear grinder, definately no.

For me, it's all down to how RvR will play out (and the announced lack of dedicated healer/support class is already a big no in my book, but I'll keep an open mind for now).

I'll see with my own eyes in open beta, there's no such thing as "professional review" - I do my own reviews and decide if it's worth of my money or not. And this comes from a F2P hater.

I wouldn't be there day 1 if their is a subscription

I wouldn't be there day 10 if their is a subscription

 

I'd watch the game a while.....and  evaluate the pluses and minuses found by the pioneers

 

I'm really getting tired of being taken.My trust of any game company is gone.

I simply cannot justify paying a sub for a game :(

 

I ALMOST did with TERA, but jumped ship. This game would have to be EXTREMELY good to warrant a Steam Collection per month (i.e. GTA IV + DLC, Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA III are on sale for 12.98)

 

That does not mean the game won't be good or even excellent in quality and support. My dollar simply can go farther elsewhere in the gaming world.

I will buy it and play it for the first month.  After that, we'll see.

I also want to add that even though I could afford to have monthly subs to more than a couple of them, I only ever sub to one at any given time. When I play an MMO I enjoy it much more if I can commit my play time to it. I like to get really into them and learn how to play them as best as I can.

Yup, just turned 46 and sliding toward 50...

And that's how I do it. I try to just have one sub so I can commit to a game.

I used to have several subs but I found that I would be paying several months before I even logged into a game and that's just not a great use of my money.

However, exceptions can always be made.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

If its fun ill play it fee or not.  I'm not one of the dumpster diving mmo players that plays games they say are crap so long as its F2P.

If it is close to a TES DAOC...and done well, I'd pay 50 per month to play.  If it is yet another lame hand-holding-try-to-please-everyone MMO, then I won't play it if you pay me.

Just join the beta and from that you can see whether to buy it or not.

I will join beta, make my decision during that time. If its fun I will pay with no problems as $15 a month for a good MMORPG would be nothing, every MMO I play nowadays free, buy to play, pay to play only last me 1 month or less as I get bored or find out the game was shallow and quit.

ESO is the only hope in 2013.

Archeage is not going to be ready by 2013 and also it will never be good as its an Eastern game being translated to the West. That means it will always be behind in content and slow for updates to reach us, also we have little say on changes to the game since it is only being ported to the West.

Wildstar is the only other MMO this year I am really intrested in. Has a lot of awesome features for PvP and PvE much like ESO. But both with a different direction.

Looking at the modern trend of newly released mmo's we can safely say that it aint worth it anymore to pay full price when they all go free to play within 2 /4 months.

Arenanet showed that you can make a decent mmo without a sub, you could try and make it pay to play.....but what good is that when you lose 50% of your playerbase and all forums are filled with bad posts about said mmo.

Warhammer
Aion
Starwars
Secret world

all tried to make it sub based....and all failed to retain their players.


You have to make a very very special kind of mmo to retain a sub based game, where in the past people where happy with a little bit of contend each few months.
These days players demand montly based contend or they quit / unsub untill something better comes along.

ESO will not be that special snowfloke
Archeage will not be that special snowfloke
FF same
Wildstar same...

way to generic mmo's altough some have very interesting features....but not enough to warrant 15 euro a month.

kinda sad if you look at it, as Blizzard showed the world that if you come with a good mmo at the right time, you can conquer the world.


It seems that the lifespan of a themepark mmo in their peak is at release...mostly created by hype.
After the hype settles down massive exodus starts and creates a domino effect untill the next best mmo comes out.

A studio needs to create something very special these days to keep its players glued or witness the same fate as all other mmo's of the past decade that flop right after the other one's.

If i should pick a mmo that might be that special snowfloke my money would be on CCP's World of Darkness.
CCP has shown how dedicated they are to produce a niche mmo and increased their playerbase from launch into their second decade with more and more subs.

Their sandbox is truly a special snowfloke, and looking at WOD only confirms they do not rush their games out of the door for profit.
They want it to be exactly where they want it to be before releasing.
No presure on devs, just love for what they do.

A decade ago we had Blizzard.....but we can all see what $$$$ can do to even the best gaming studios.
But thats another story :)


I hope ESA will do well, but from what i have seen so far, its mmmo #3212445 that goes 2 million subs on launch and drops as fast as they gained it.

I don't think the sub model matters to me. I expect this game to hold my interest for a month, just like GW2 and every other game that has basically the same stuff on paper. It might surprise me, but I doubt it seeing how the end game is RvR (like GW2).
