Oh, how the mighty have fallen! I guess it was kind of inevitable though. Maybe this will get people coming back :)

This is supporting the idea...

But the talk is already spreading.

They have seven /MILLION/ subscribers. They are releasing a new expansion. It is not going free to play for at least another entire expansion.

Yeah, i'd wait another year or two at least, but game is falling apart, the active subscriber rates have dropped even more, and Blizzard is making stupid offers on twitter. I bet you all that WoW is gonna go F2P before a year after today

Walknolonger, I hate to burst your bubble but i doubt that World of Warcraft is going FTP any time soon. Yea their sales have dropped.... From "HOLY SHIT YOU BATHE IN MONEY" to "Well now you don't bathe 3 times a day in money"

WoW Is still a large money machine for them and they have no reason to turn it FTP. 

Yes Many talk about it and want it to be so. But then again, Many talk about the lottery and how they want to win, it doesn't make it happen

Phew, I never buy World of Warcraft and now maybe I will. I bought Warcraft 3 though.

Didn't we do this already? Also your thread is in the wrong forum.

 

If anything, WoW will be going free-to-get, but remain pay-to-play. Until the next series of MMOs are coming out they have no reason to change anything whatsoever though.

I thought Blizzard dismissed the rumor about WoW going free to play during the BlizzCon?

Im kind of expecting them to make WoW Classic F2P (so to lvl60) at some point first, but the whole game? i dont think so.

The game won't go F2P any time soon. They were pretty clear about it, and TB and a few others have covered it.

The game wasn't designed around that, and if they wanted that in future, they'd have to add a ton of changes. Perhaps they can seed that in WoD, but I doubt it. As stated above, it still makes more then any other NA MMO and with the amount of projects Blizz is running at the moment, it's not going to be a focus. If anything they'll branch it out to create an ongoing experiance, connected to other devices and options. Titan is still a thing too.

As long as they have more subs than any other MMO, they won't go F2P. However I don't think it's worth playing anymore tbh. The story for the new expansion is unoriginal and... absurd. But I've got to admit, Blizzard is determined in keeping WoW alive

Well if they do it right, blizzard just might get me back to wow.  When STWOR went free to play it gradually got me to play it again, albeit casually, but it's single player content is worth experiencing to be sure.

I love how "going F2P" is still considered like a downfall or something, you all realize every MMO that goes F2P make more money right? Now as for Wow, Its a free to play up to level 60 when the cap is 100 (will be in next exp) so same as usual since 1 to 20 has been free for like 6 years now. Considering that Wow has about 6 million more subs then the #2 MMO, if it ever goes full f2p its because Blizzard just said "meh, fuck it".
