If it is a good B2P or F2P model (looking at TSW, GW2 and Aion) then yes. If they go for a cash grab like SoE and SWTOR, no thanks.

tbh I was already tempted to go back but meh.. to me Guild Wars 2 is much like WAR in alot of aspects (don't start flaiming fanboys, I think you know what I mean if you actually compared most of the game) and of course GW2 is more modern in gameplay and graphics.  I think I would still play it if it went f2p or b2p (of course to me b2p isn't alot different to f2p cus I already bought it :-P ) but this was asked for before and never happened, I don't see it happening before they actually pull the plug on it which imo would be a shame cus the game does have potential regardless of the negaitve views of some players.

I like the PVP in  WAR a lot. Raiding Keeps, dumping oil on peoples heads, knocking down doors with battering rams , ect. Defending was even better, getting a rally call going and getting others to try to get in the keep to defend while the other faction tried to guard the entrances. PVE was bad though. Mobs respawning before you even killed the original. Being stuck alot in the environment. Invisible mobs in PQs and instances, ect.  I would consider going back if it was B2P but I dunno. I can't see this game making itself relevant after 4 years. There is a first time for everything though.

I'm sure a lot of players would come back if it went F2P.  Then after about an hour of playing they would remember why they left in the first place and quit again.

No, because it wasn't very much like DAOC back when it launched, and I doubt it's very much like DAOC today.

As somone else said, make DAOC F2P and I'd likely check it out from time to time.

Now THIS is THE REASON why I keep saying that they shouldn't have remodelled the game to meet DAoC fans' dreams. They basically shoehorned the RvR in and called it the day. They should've made Warhammer unique. Shame.

If it went F2P, it would be so restrictive, that it would require you to pay out more in the cash shop to be a competitive PvP player.  When will people realise that most F2P games require you to spend money to have the full experience of a game?

If it went B2P I'd definitely give it another go. F2P, depends how it would be implemented. If it was anything like SWTOR's version of F2P not a chance, if it was a la carte content like LotRO's I probably would.

Back in the day we had a seventy member guild but like nearly every other sub based game I've played for the past seven years, I think we all enjoyed it initially but weren't impressed enough to continue paying a monthly sub for it. By the end of the third month, everyone, including myself had quit.

Warhammer Online got some of the Art right, the PVP idea was good.
However it was lacking in the substance for ME. Combat feeled like a herp derp purple particle fest and ruined any flair.

My Dwarf may had bad-ass looking axes and looked rough on the edges, but the skills hammering, animation and combat system feeled like two kids throw nerf plush Axes at each other in a Warehouse kids corner.

This is not WAR, i don't want this even for free :)

Apparently the game was going to be Battlefronts only because Mythic wanted to keep RvR for DaoC, but then they were bought by EA who had different ideas and forced them to shoehorn in some sort of pseudo RvR, half done.

I started playing this game again a month ago and I'm having a blast but it does have many flaws and I understand why people aren't coming back:

1) It's run by EA and they seem to have left it to rot (no advertisement, no major update, nothing newsworthy ever comes out WAR anymore).

2) It's a 2 faction RvR system with its inevitable population imbalance.

3) There's nothing else to do but PvP, no fluff. There's crafting but just for pots and sockets, not gear.

4) It's P2P + cash shop. That's completely retarded if u ask me, for a game that already has a foot and a half in the grave.

5) It's a gear grind themepark with zero sandbox elements and zero persistence to your actions. You flip zones then they reset, then you do it over again...OK.

6) It's not competitive (ie: no ladders, rankings etc). For a PvP centric MMO, that's pretty lame.

7) Although the graphics and art are amazing, animations remain clunky and sub par. After you've been spoiled by WoW animations, some here can be hard to digest.

Note I didn't put low population as a negative because both servers are very active at primetime and on weekends in T3/T4.
