    thats terrible news, every free-to-play mmo ive played are pay-to-win in 1 way or another since if you cant pay, you dont get access to as much of the game

    Unfortunately cave812 has a certain point. There are very few free to play MMORPGs that make it even remotely possible to win without buying something. Here's to hoping if TESO does become free, it doesn't become pay to win. A subscription cost reduction would be a lot nicer methinks, without the risks. :/

    If it goes free-to-play it would feel like a hail mary. I don't want to think that the game is in such dire straits that they would make that move, but the signs are there. Their reasons for discontinuing the 6-month subscription are unconvincing, and there are a lot of legitimate problems with game play. But I hold high hopes that the 1.6 update will bring great things and prove the subscription model is still viable.

    I do think they should offer a truly free trial. Right now thay give a free 30 days...after you buy the game and register your subscription with a payment method. That's a lot of money and personal information to fork over just to see if you're interested. Changing that process might get them more new customers.
