Just so we're clear: The fucking arrogant, elitist attitude that has pervaded this thread with someone who wanted to discuss ideas, is what will hurt the game more than this discussion.
The OP didn't profess that the game is going F2P, that F2P is imminent, that there is anything wrong with this game. And yet people have been blasting this thread like it is the antichrist. Grow up and get over yourselves. I thought that people in this subforum were better than that, but I am clearly very wrong. If you think that this thread is anything like what you're bitching about, you need glasses.
