I will for sure pay for a $15 sub model game. Usually means the developers will be more involved.

Im saying no here. There are a ton of free or buy to play games out there, some that still fall into the AAA category. I just dont see any MMO warranting a subscription anymore. And the numbers agree with me. Any MMO that tries to have a sub lasts maybe 6 months before going free. IF they choose to have a sub, it will only be temporary. Subs and box prices are a great way for them to recoup cost of development, then when subs fall, they go free to get whatever else they can. Its becoming an industry standard, and I would sooner just wait it out. 

 

On that note, if you asked me a month ago, theres a possibility I would have said yes. That was before I got interested in WildStar. I still hope to be able to play both games, but ESO only offers two thing, PVE or Cyrodill. While WildStar on the other hand offers PVE, World PVP (contested zones), Warplots (Flying fortress battles/GvG), PVE raiding, player housing and arenas. If ESO is going to compete with that, they need to add back PVE raiding, and add in player housing and arena PVP. 

 

Im sorry, but you cant offer less than other games, but then expect people to pay more for them. Thats a bad business plan

  If the games good i have no trouble paying a subscription.

 

  While i understand times are tight for some what confuses me isthat some people have no problem pay $15 for a dinner or a movie, or night of drinks, but will only play a game that may give a months worth of entertainment for $15. Those same F2P crowd i have no doubt will be the first to complain if theres anything wrong with the game or customer service isn't fast enough etc.

It all depends where your priorities lie, i'd rather be spending my money on dinner or a movie to be honest. I have paid subscription fees for over 10 years and i'm done now.

If it is a good game  I would prefer a sub to F2P.

Its Because Todays Society Has This Mentality That They Are ENTITLED To Everything For Free. This Younger Generation Is Growing Up With Everything Handed No Real Consequence For Living At Home Unti 30. If This Game Goes F2p You Are Spot On They Will Complain Its Not Free Enough For Them. If Its P2p They Will Be On Every Single Post Bashing The Game They Dont Even Play. These People Have Ruined Mmos And Will Continue To Ruin MmoS Along With Other Thibgs That Are Way More Important Than Video Games. To This Crowd Hate To Break The News....You Are Not ENTITLED To Crap In A VIDEO GAME!

Yes. Just like I have with every highly anticipated MMO that has come out in the past 5 years. In those five years I have graduated to buying the collectors editions of said MMO's. That means Ill probably go ahead and spend however much it is for the collectors edition for this game as well. Hopefully it will keep my attention a lot longer than SWTOR did.

Whats so confusing? Obviously they dont get their moneys worth from those games. I myself prefer to buy a 0.7 Daniels and have a good evening then pay 15 bucks for some game i think is not worth it. This way at least im entertained for one evening instead of being bored for 30 days.

Can i have a loan of your crystal ball when you're finished with it?

use your own, since you are saying the game is that good, I saw the pics I saw what is being promised I saw how the development is going, yeah not good for me, if you like go ahead, I still am busy to lose my time with this thing

If the client is free (I know it won't be) or they charged no more than $40 for the client/box/key then maybe.  Even then, not until after a month has gone by after release.   I no longer feel the need nor desire to keep giving a game company money every month to play something I already paid for.

I will only play if there is a sub option. A 100% f2p game I will avoid like the plague.  A hybrid model is fine but I prefer sub only.

You're missing a simple "No" in there, rather than qualifying it with a F2P.

First This Makes Absolutely No Sense At All. One Most Games These Days Cost More Than $40, Second When You Purchase An Mmo There Is No Monthly Fee The 1St month Its Included In The Box Price. 3Rd You Paid For The Game For A Month With You More Than $40 The $15/Month Is To Continue Playing You Didnt Pay For That With Your More Than $40.

Unfortunately, killing is just one of those things that gets easier the more you do it.

This might be kind of random. But seeing this post makes me want to mention something.

 

I remember when i first started MMOing when i was just a kid, and i have been MMOing ever since. But its changed a lot since then. When i use to always subscribe to that One game, play it day and night. It was my Home MMORPG. Yea i had my side touches, the F2P shooter, or the simple games on the side. Even if i went out and played those other games and cheated a bit on my Home MMO i still went back at the end of the night to that One MMO and when i logged in....

Everytime, It was like the flood gates opening. My whole friends list booming, whispers here and there. Raid invites, people talking to me. Telling me to hurry my ass up and get on vent. When my Home game was truly a home, full of people i knew for months or years. Not IRL, few of them yes, but not even most, Most of them were all made in-game friends.

I remember i paid 15 bucks a month not for updates, not for any of that shit, All that was just extra for me, i liked it, wanted it, but it wasnt first on my list of why im paying.

Why i was paying $15 a month, it was so I Can Have A Community To Play With, Befriend, and Enjoy the Game with.

Other: Maybe but only if I like it a lot in beta. If I don't like it or don't get a chance to play it in beta, then no.
