    Default Free to play or Pay to play what is your taste?

    Now I started a thread where I sort of got torn a new one about " Is this game going to be p2p" sorry my mistake forum noob :P

    but it did start up a good disscussion amongst players who like P2P games over F2P ones and vise versa. so I'd like the whole community which one do you perfer?

    I like P2P the service and quality of such games are always better then a F2P.

    With F2P its either you can only get the good gear if you buy through the website shop where you pay real $$$ for in game gear OR its the F2P game limits how much you get to play and promises a better play experince if you buy the Premium or gold edition... stupid stuff.


    (for the trolls and other mad forum readers) : I AM NOT asking weither this is a F2P Or P2P I hear that topic has been blugened to death with an ugly stick. I'm asking everyones opinion on both types of MMO.

    I never played a good f2p mmo. I have however played a few good p2p MMO's.
    (Even EQ2 seems to suck donkey ballons with all those limitations in f2p.. )

    So my taste i definatly p2p.

    Definitely Pay to Play. The free games generally don't have as much content and their evolution is slow if the game evolves at all. And I'm not a big fan of purchasing "Premium Stuff" in game with real money either, unless its fluff items, like non combat pets or social clothing. I won't buy it but I also don't mind if its there.

    P2P is the onlt way to go as long as it means consistent content updates and bug fixes.

    I think p2p works for me when it's a game i intend to play full time.
    F2P works for games that I just play for the hell of it.

    The business model is changing slowly, f2p just needs to get rid of it's stigma.

    P2P by far. No cash shop means everyone has to earn their own gear and items. If you put the time in anything you want can be yours.

    I agree which you. I play WOW most of the time but I DID play Global agenda it was free and a pretty fun shooter if I was bored or waiting for my WOW server to come back on.

    P2P All the way. I like paying one monthly fee for guaranteed content updates and having equal footing with everyone else in the game.

    F2P is for ****ty asian games and games that aren't good enough to get enough income via subs. F2P in the end also costs you more per month if you want to compete with anyone that pays.

    F2p games are f2p for a reason...I will never play one.
    Nor will I ever use a cash shop for *micro expansions*

    Paying twice the pricce for less total content ftL!
