GW model sans having to buy the box first. Sounds good.

Agreed.

F2P is much more appealing to me if you can purchase substantial and complete sections of game "real estate" rather than a lot of little transactions.

It sounds like our concerns with F2P's are starting to be aired out. Beau Hindman, please take note.

We're in an age of experimentation. Some things will work, others will not, but it's an exciting bit of time we're around. Free doesn't always mean crappy anymore.

It's a brave new world.

Yes ..... and like every other game that has come before it Promising that the CS items either won't imbalance gameplay or that the way they plan their transactions won't impede gameplay in any way ..... this will be true! .... and last for exactly two weeks at which point the CS will consume the game.

Then again another way to look at "we won't nickle and dime you" is a literal translation..... Nothing will be under $5

Hopefully I'm wrong

GW model with no subscription and box fee? Count me in!

What I hate is selling virtual items which can be infinitely generated with a fraction of the effort it takes to make a game (a real scam), I don't mind selling your game in mini-expansion formats, especially as that seems to be the only revenue for the game.
