    You're dreaming sir.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me.

    It's just a title of the panel on which they are going to reveal next expansion, plans etc.

    As long as they keep the sub option also, so I can stay subbed and get 100x the amount of shit that free to play users get, and watch then bitch and complain that free to play does not give them everything in the world.

    But no really, if they go free to play which they will eventually, which won't be the start of the next expansion considering they have a peak at the start of an expansion so it wouldn't be smart considering they will have a lot people check it out at the very start for easy subs' But if they do go free to play, Ill stay subbed.

    Why do people think WoW needs to go F2P, It's sub model is very profitable & only a fool would think they would drop it. Most of the MMOs that went F2P didn't have anough players to support the subscription most of those games had like 100k - 200k players. WoW has technically 7 Mill Active Accounts that pay the sub weither its monthly or by the hour.

    I can see them dropping the price maybe to 10 or 12 bucks, but that's it really.

    What's next? Lies and promises they can't keep that is insulting to our intelligence. Also a viewing of new character models that wont come into the game until they are no longer relevant. And justification for selling Cosmetic and/or normal items in Blizzard store.

    That is my prediction.

    7 Million Players = Needs to go free to play right?

    Not going to happen.

    Not yet, not for a while (years)

    I'd rather pay a subscription than pay nothing tbh, benefits of paying for something generally outweigh the benefits of having something for free.

    Maybe it's just the next expansion but i have a feeling that's something more. Maybe they will make WoW free to play until level 90 once the next expansion hits or something like that. The subs are going down pretty fast and now with the Titan reset they need to keep WoW up a little more.

    Just a random idea, it can be something very different but i suspect they will announce something more than just the WoW expansion this Blizzcon.

    Keep on feeding.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    Or they could be smart about it and do it like Rift.

    My bet's that it's just going to be about the next expansion. WoW is just pulling in too much cash for them to F2P it now.

    I don't remember Rifts and I was subbed, what do they do? I remember getting monthly currency.

    Can't see them ever dropping the sub price. It's been the same since WOW was released I think. So technically when you take inflation into account Blizz have been earning less per sub over time anyway.

    I'll claim that $2 when they just announce an expansion during that time slot.
