Games worth subscribing to are typically higher quality games.

I vote Sub model for ESO!

 

What buisness model do you want for ESO?

Subscription model
free to play
both Sub and FTP
pay in obamastamps
entitled to play for zero money
direct transfer of unemployment
sending sexy ESO roleplaying videos for game cards
playing for free on a test server with required playtime
what is a buisness model?

I want it to be sub based, but i have a feeling if it is...it will fail badly. MMo players might be able to spend $15 a month, but a friend who's a console player that loves TES wont. He will have to pay for TESO and Xbox live as a monthly subscription.Before i start judging i have to sit next to a console player and ask him if they'll spend $15 a month for a game. MMO players will say yes, but will a console player?

I chose free to play since buy to play was not on that list.

Not to mention, the fact that it is being released for consoles, pretty much tells you it will not be sub based. Unless I am missing something here.

I also prefer the sub based model, but I think GW2 did fine with the BTP. I still continue to wonder why they don't try lowering the sub to a Netflix price point or a dollar cheaper. That may make a big mental difference to many...say...6.99 per month. It needs to feel to those without a lot of money like its a monthly expense they can live with. I think because its on consoles, I'd be surprised if it is sub based. I'm leaning toward BTP.

Why do you have to inject your caveman political views in a game forum?  

Obamastamps, really?  That's both racist and incorrect.

Did they not announce what their business model would be?

No they haven't, thus the purpose of this thread.

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the priviledge to do so as well.

Lets be realistic here, There launching on consoles. They are going for the microtrasaciton model which most console gamers are comfortable with.

excuse me OP but this poll is utter garbage because it is missing one option. Buy to Play.

I hope this game is Buy to Play, like GW2. It would do the game a favor. SKyrim alone sold more copies than what this game could make with subscription only before going F2P.

I do hope this game is buy to play and not free to play or sub to play. It would be the best model for a TES game.

EDIT: if they want to have an optional subscription with extra perks, go for it. Im ok with that. As long as i need to purchase the game to play but im not limited to a subscription i am happy

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

console gamers are comfortable with extra real content as DLC. Not with microtransactions or crappy 5 dollar dlc taht only gives you a weapon or a skin or a boost.

Very strange statement... How does skyrim fit into this context? Skyrim is one time purchase, And your advocating for a B2P solution which is infarct a microtransaction system.

Of Course skyimr sells more becuase the value for money is there, And is a higher profile production.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

 I voted Obamastamps, will let more people play it who can't afford it and poor people should be allowed to play as well.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

I think you got the choices wrong it should be,

1) Subscribe to see how long until this game goes free-to-play and while you are waiting we'll give you 1 extra quest in 6 months time that you can repeat daily for then next 2 years.  That will be $15/month please.

2) Free to play but you have to pay $5 to log out or we'll format your hard drive. But hey while you're playing anyway, how about this handy underwear remover for your character.

3) Pay for a sub or we'll charge you $10 to change spec, $5 to fast travel back to your capital city and $1/minute of dungeons unless you grind for 22 hours a day to earn the money to buy the pass off rich bastards but if you do we'll limit your bank to 1 credit less than you need to buy the dungeon pass... so just buy the sub ok.

It might be either a sub based game or a B2P game with paid DLCs.

Even though it's only 33 votes... Make's you wonder who is really pushing the F2P? Or should we call it "F2P because we know you will spend more in or cash shop sucker"

If it will be free to play ..i dont know if im gonna touch the game ...

Most of f2p al more likely pay 2 win or at least pay to rush to max levels max mounts and some high gear,

A subscription model + pay for expansion is the honest way for a mmo...and maybe micro transactions ONLY for estetic items like cloths ,but not mounts ,exp scrolls etc
