Liar. -------- As far as people who "can't afford" $15 per month, there's different degrees of "can't". I have to limit what I spend and where I spend it, and I try to limit myself to no more than 1 full retail price game per month. I just bought Saint's Row IV a couple weeks ago, so that $50 spent limits my funds to spend on any Steam sales or stray SC cards that " just happen" to fall into my shopping cart when I'm out and about. I "can" afford $15 per month for EQ2, but that means I "can't" use that $15 per month for something else that may come along. Being able to play/pay under the current structure gives me that little bit of wiggle room so I don't ever feel like I'm losing anything if I skip a month on EQ2, whereas with a pure subscription-only model I would be completely locked out of my account and I would be very resistant to renewing. I've seen a lot of people say that by just giving up 1-2 fast food meals it will cover the cost of a subscription. Well, some months I'd just rather have the fast food.
