For me, P2P by a wide margin.

There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

P2P. Since DAoC I ALWAYS got new and progressive content updates. And I always got a really good community which shares my playtype. P2P just binds me to the game like I want and those games often had pretty difficult systems and formulas - which were pretty cool because you keep yourself busy with the game and your character.

F2P and B2P - both - were pretty cheap ... But I got really disappointened by the community and the repetetive content. Forthermore those are more for casualplayers - Even the class and skill-systems in GuildWars 2 are really, really easy. Its often about "login, have instant fun without preperations, you are free to logout after 30mins"


I play pretty often and long with a guild. I need challange to keep my occupied. I was pretty happy with P2P mmorpgs.

I wasted the most money on lifetime subscriptions.  I'm not strapped for cash, but wish I could have seen the future before investing as much in the games.


Some to mention:  Hellgate London, AoC, TSW (Funcom twice... I know)


Now I'm wishing I had spent the money on LOTRO's lifetime option when they had it.  That game just happens to be the one which fits my interests right now.

Definitely P2P but I have also spent money on SoE cards to play those games free while unlocking specifics.

In a perfect world we would cross reference this poll with how long each person played a game between F2P and P2P. Of course people would rather pay nothing, or less than across the fence, but how much did it mean? ATM I'm paying a sub though I have the store credits to play multiple F2P games.

I don't think P2P is going anywhere even if it's combined with a cash shop for F2P players (SoE). You're already seeing survival tactics by recent F2P conversions such as Aion. Nothing in the MMO sphere worth value is truly F2P and I think more changes will be made to F2P titles to balance the gap between free and operable.

I haven't spent a penny on an MMO in years, but if I were going to spend any, it would be on subscriptions.  I will not ever spend a penny in a cash shop in any MMO, period.  I don't care if it's F2P or P2P or B2P, I would never do it under any circumstances. 

Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
