No.  I have only hopped into the game maybe once every 2 months since the first month and have only played for an hour tops.  The content updates just don't seem worth a sub to me.  Even if they gave an allowance of Diamonds which would help make the decision easier, similar to Lotro or SWTOR,  I still wouldn't due to my feeling like I've beaten the game and alt play being boring as hell.

not worth it.

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

Seeing all those that say they are done with P2P games and will never touch them makes me want to play P2P games even more.  The f2p and p2p crowd have different gaming views and i want nothing to do with the f2p crowd and how they approach gaming these days. Dont ask me to explain this to you either. You know exactly what i mean. If a Sub keeps you people out of a at least one decent game, then ill be happy to pay a sub.

There never was. thats teh point.

In fact only tolerable ones were L2 and EvE (or other games like that) which actually never had any added fees over sub (read: paid expansions).

You see, reading posts like yours make me feel good about P2P starting to be thing of the past (even Blizz is considering F2P since they dropped to 8m now).

Feeling entitled and "important" because you pay 15/month rofl. Yes we know that kind.

I own it and almost never play it. If it required a sub I would just stop playing it altogether.

It's not a cost thing, I just don't find the game interesting or fun anymore and usually only log in out of boredom.

While I did like some aspects of the game, it bored me to death and since I don't pla it anymore with it being free, I wouldn't play it if it had a sub.

I'm not a fan of F2P games anyway.  They are too easy, full of too many crappy players, and very shallow games in general.

Even before GW2 I was saying I had enough of sub games and now GW2 makes that even clearer.  I no longer believe anyone who claims sub games give you more or have a better community.  If something amazing, next-gen, whatever that would be, came out then I might consider a sub but until then, I dont see any game out there worth it.

Same as P2P ones.

And GW2 is not F2P game, so what does that have to do with GW2 anyway.

So exactly like P2P games for last 8 years or so? That's my problem. If a F2P game offers me exactly the same core experience as P2P game, why would I ever choose the paid version ?

Give ma MMO worth the sub, with actual depth, with no cash shop(even vanity), regular content updates and polished core mechanics (both PvE and PvP) and I won't mind spending those 15$ a month. I'm afraid that won't happen anytime soon because of simple fact - MMOs are expensive to make, and no studio with enough money to make something like this will risk loosing the "casual" market.

Of course its a f2p, you just have to buy the client.

Yah, im really astonished what people call free these days.

I chuckle every time i hear "you get 500 FREE coins"...if you PAY 15$ for subscription.

I don't play any game with subs, so I wouldn't play GW2 if it had a sub.

It's not worth a sub fee, really. It's an extremely casual friendly game with a shop.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

I hate this stupid question. It's designed for one of two answers:

* Yes- I would pay a subscription, therefore proving that B2P is not the best option

* No, I would not pay a subscription, therefore proving that the game is not worth a subscription fee.

It's a lose-lose question with no purpose.

 

 

GW2 would not be GW2 if it had a subscription. Period.

Facts do not require fiction for balance.

Probably, but since from day 1 the game had been announced out of the gate as having no subscription fee I'd be disappointed if one were added. Is the game worth a sub fee? Hell yeah. Had they announced from day 1 that there would be a sub I wouldn't have blinked.

 

But you know what? None of this matters. It's one of if not the best MMO on the market, and there's no sub fee. That's a reality I'm happy with.

Haha, you've got to be kidding me. I don't like the P2P and will not play a game with a sub. You know why? Because as soon as there is a sub the quality of the game is diluted with stupid time sinks to keep you hooked. 

I also hate the F2P MMOs though. I find it ridiculous what they are trying to do. Rip you off like crazy. I find it very annoying to see those dollar signs over every feature. Ideally I would like a game which you pay for the box and then pay for DLCs/Expansions. That's fine. I am more willing to pay for content like this. But I am not willing to go down the stupid F2P route.

But overall, I think the whole problem is with the nature of MMOs. MMOs are horrible nowadays imo. They are like those games on Facebook. If I had to choose between a F2P MMO and a P2P MMO I would always go for the P2P. I just hate the feeling that F2P MMOs give me - cheap crappy failed games which charge you for everything.

Anyways I have stuck mostly to console gaming and non-MMO PC gaming. It's a lot more expensive than just paying 1-2 subs for a MMO but it is much more enjoyable and it is worth it.

Actually, a lot of the new indie games are fun on both the console and the PC. I have been playing a lot of those lately due to the lack of something better. Skyrim could only carry me so far. I have also started to play PNP games for my roleplaying needs. My son likes to play and it helps him with this speech impediment and is also good for developing critical thinking skills.
