As someone who is disabled and thus has to live on a limited budget, I actually prefer WoW's "old-fashioned" model because it's a very cost effective source of entertainment. While LoL's model may work well for someone with plenty of disposable income and little time, sometimes there are situations (like mine) where you have plenty of time, but money is tight. Sometimes, both time and money are limited (this happens a lot when you're working minimum wage and/or going through college), in which case you have to make tough choices about one or the other. In this case, I prefer WoW's model because I know that Penny Arcade comic won't become reality for me. It's something that's easy to be tempted by, but one that I daresay most people can't afford these days. Not all people who log lots of time into subscription MMOs are lazy "parent's basement dwellers", nor is every casual player with a family and resposibilities a clueless noob - there's a whole spectrum in between those two extremes. Bottom line: sometimes, subscription MMOs like WoW aren't about power or time; they're just the most cost effective form of entertainment available.
