The industry is changing so fast. I remember how just a couple of years ago, lots of people just hated the free-to-play model. It stood for low-quality, asian, grind and pay-to-win. The big MMO forums were full of posts stating that people would NEVER play a F2P game.
And now Tera has launched and all I’m hearing is: “It’s a great game, but WHY did they not make it free-to-play like all the other games?”
I would actually love it if Tera were free-to-play. I only want to pay for one subscription at a time and at the moment, that’s EQ2 (which ironically is positioned as a F2P game).
Oh well, I’m sure that Tera will change its payment model in a year or so. I’ll just try it then.
