I wouldn't mind someone doing a sort of inbetween model. The thing that annoys me about F2P's are some of the things you can only get in cash shops. For example, I'm playing Dragon Nest right now, and for a skill reset you have to pay $20. So if you want to PvP one day, you have to pay the $20 for a reset and allocate points to PvP skills, but when you need to go back to PvE dungeons and stuff, you pay another $20 for another reset. It's a recent thing that has turned off lots of ppl. You have to pay money for certain gear. They are costumes, but they have stats, percentage increases actually. It's a bit disheartening knowing someone will have better stats than you since they paid more. I think Aion offers a decent middle ground. You pay a monthly fee, but you can buy tons of things with your own money. Not just a race or faction change, but new mounts and carrier pets, skins for weapons and armor, new clothing designs (for show, no stats), new hair and certain dyes, and new dances. You can use the cash shop, and many have, but you don't have to at all for your actual gaming. The only thing i would change is lower the $15 a month fee to something like $10.
