I seem to have a tradition of playing CO for free, so I'll try it if i have time and see what's improved.

(Open beta + every free weekend)

I'll pass, took it off of my PC long ago and it's not worth putting back on.

I'm in. I like it, it's good. Can't afford it all the time, but yeah. Thanks for the heads-up!

Free? For Champions Online, that would still mean paying too much.

The game as long as PvE is concerned looks great (never really cared for PvP, can't comment) in my opinion worth taking a look.

I'm in, the price is right and I'm sure I can get a week's worth of fun out of it.

Do they really think this is going to get them more permanent subscribers? You need to actually make your game, well, worth keeping on your drive in order to do that.

But, free week, good for those who want to try it at least.

Cryptic needs to just switch to a free-to-play model, I'm sure they'd do fine with their cash shop and it's just the right price for their games.

Just thought I would throw in some cents.

It is so weird, you would think that with 7 free days of game play who could pass up on it. But I am finding myself in the position of not actually caring enough about this game to even sign up for a free week of game play. Altho this might have something to do with playing in the beta until about a month into the when the game had gone live and watching what a train wreck it was. It is really true what they say, first impression lasts.

STO and Champions Online go free to play. You heard it here first.

See, if they did? That would be about the point that I'd feel they were a decent value and I'd probably start playing.

seriously October, how many of you form an opinion that is 10+ months old? like nothing ever changes or improves?

The last time they tried this didn't it fail miserably? Or was that CoH/CoV? I forget. Maybe both. Going to give it a try though. A week is pretty cool.

As far as I can see there has been very little content added to CO since I left 6 months into launch, considering how much needed to be added. However I loved my characters and just for old times sake I'm going to have a play.

16 character slots and Recons taking out the C-store, or it's not worth my time to re-install CO that I blew from my hd back in last December.
