While it may seem worse than what it was before, how many games actually give you this much extra with a sub to begin with? Most F2P games with a sub option are riddled with no access blocks and half game usage unless you pay. This is a game where you get THE WHOLE GAME for free! If you pay you get bonuses. Let me say that again.... THE WHOLE GAME FOR FREE!!! Look at the F2P EQ2, Half classes half races etc... SWTOR, Hardly half the game for free.. Champions online, Stuck with premade classes and 1/4th at that... NeverWInterOnline, Half bags, half companion slots, etc. These are only a few games I have played for free recently to discover its not much of a game without the sub. Majority of my outfit plays for free and they do just fine but SOE rarely gets a dime from them. If I didnt give my 15 bucks a month to these guys I would be giving it to one of the games above or maybe a game that doesnt have F2P like FFXIV. If you have fun playing the game then you should support it. If you dont, then do like the majority and play the whole gd game for free!
