Assuming the professional reviews on release day are great

If ESO costs $15/month, will you play it?

Yes - I will preorder or buy on release day
Maybe - I will wait a few days/weeks/months to see if there are unexpected problems
No - I will wait until it goes F2P

A sub price will not effect my decision to purchase or not. I actually prefer a sub model for most games. Maybe because I have paid them on MMOs for many years.

I voted Maybe. My decision will probably come a week or two after release.

Why all the shitty polls? There is simply not enough information yet to even come close to answering the question realistically.

I said maybe.  I never pre-order games unless I've played them in beta and know exactly what I'm getting into.  I've only pre-ordered maybe 20 games in my lifetime, dating back to my preorder of my NES lol, which I still have the box and packing materials, and it still works.  The problem I have with ESO, is that I have a pretty good idea of what it's going to be like, but without 100% knowledge I won't pre-order anything.  I've only ever been let down twice with pre-ordering.  That was Shenmue 2 and swtor.  I wouldn't say it's a let down really for either of them.  I played them both and got my money's worth out of them, but they just weren't what I was expecting at all.

There are too many F2P and B2P mmos to pay monthly for another medicore product.

i will purchase the game regardless of payment model. That said, i will only subscribe if the PvE is better than Skyrim's (being better is a matter of personal opinion, so if its better to me personally). Otherwise i already have Skyrim with even more replayability thanks to the modding community and no sub. The entire first free month will be enough for me to decide that.

if that's the case and my own opinion is that it's good then "yes" I will buy it and pay the paltry $15.00 per month. It's less than an hour's worth of work.

Yes. The no-extra-money (I prefer that term to "free") month always included with purchase is more than enough for me to know if I'm going to pay more to keep playing. And that month alone is worth the initial $49.99 or whatever.

I spent $39.99 on Bioshock Infinite a couple of weeks ago and finished it in a weekend. I loved the game and felt I got my money's worth. Paying $15 for a month of MMO play I enjoy is a bargain by comparison.

not pre-ordering anymore. not paying anything anymore,  until at least  a month goes by and see the current state of the game. after that i can hold a monthly fee, if i think that the game deserves it.

enough with milking cows. at least for me :)

I chose may be because I still don't know enough about the game.And the fact that they removed all the videos from PAX 2013 has raised some redflags for me.

Make NO mistake this game WILL be $15/month, it is to high dollar of an MMO to be free, I said the same thing about DC Universe and SWTOR before they announced their pay models and everyone was like "NO THEY WILL BE FREE YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING" and I was right. 

Though they are both free to play now that is because the games didnt meet expectations, assuming this one is near as good as we all hope it is it will be a subscription based game.

to be honest, whether the game has a sub, or is f2p is to me completely irrelevant, the only real question is whether the game is going to be any good or not. which so far, is a much much bigger question mark.

I'd pay to play Sponge Bob vs Hello Kitty if it was entertaining and enjoyable use of time. So i'd say Yes but if the product turns around to be all hype and horrible follow through ala Star Wars then no... Probably won't even buy it. Much easier to pay for the box price when you know the title could be hit or miss if it doesn't have a monthly fee and you can go back anytime. (Defiance, Secret World, Guild Wars2) I'd hope it follows their model makes my life easier and basically guarentees a box sell.

Absolutely - prefer sub games honestly.
