The problem is, once Blizzard thinks WoW is ready to become a free-to-play game, there's no stopping them. I would'nt even mind epics costing money, personally, because I don't raid all that much. I mainly do smaller type stuff, so as long as that remains free and viable, I'll be happy.Plus, even if WoW did go free-to-play, I'm not sure how many microtransactions they'd have to implement "right away." I mean, the WoW fanbase is very loyal and well-looked after. I'd be willing to bet that large numbers of current subscribers would sign up for the pay subscription (if it was reasonably priced), just to make sure the game keeps functioning how they like it to. For instance, if Blizzard made WoW free-to-play, and added a VP Subscriber fee of fifteen dollars or less, I'd think that a whole lot of current subscribers would sign up (including myself). Personally, I think that Blizzard has done a magnificent job with WoW, and if I could afford it, I'd pay. Blizzard's been investing in the best trust fund for years: Loyal Fanbase. People with a history of caring about their customers and making their fans happy are not going to find a shortage of either very quickly.
