    WoW should go free 2 play

    I dont want to pay 13€ a month for playing it 5 out of 30 evenings a month.

    Free 2 play is way more reasonable for a old game like this.

    But it is free to play, you just have to be smart and manage to save up enough for a token every month, which in all honesty isn't very hard.

    For instance, you can do it AFK with gold missions if you have enough alts. With 3 alts that got followers that are 950, you will get about 280k/month.

    Well other people do. There are plenty of other games that suit your demographic like Guild Wars 2, Black Desert Online, or Elder Scrolls Online.

    So how would they make money from the game? Extra €6 a month to do M+? another €4 for access to Raids? €3 to join LFG and LFR? oh wait, thats €13 monthly

    Well, then don't. But just so you know, you are paying for 30days access time - anytime. So, your logic would be equal to me saying "I dont want to pay 13 euros because I dont play when I sleep"

    You are saying like all of that is equal to WarCraft. They are not.

    Another idea is to buy /played time instead of paid weeks.

    As like paying 13€ for 200 hours playtime.

    Well no because the sub model is still a justifiable source of income to Blizzard.

    Farm some gold and buy a WoW token if it bothers you so much.

    I'd rather not see the game go F2P because then there would be all sorts of P2W/borderline p2w garbage infesting it as is the case of quite a lot of F2P MMOs.

    Subjective.

    I think some games are way better than WoW. Especially some MMOs.

    Apple orange. Runescape has not close as many players as WoW has.

    Orrmegosh.. you dont really get my logic. My logic is to have a different payment system instead of paying per month.

    Shouldn't really, it is fine as it is. You shouldn't really pay 13 euro if you don't see yourself holding on to your own investment. That is a bad decision on your behalf as a person with currency in your wallet. I would suggest you review your gaming habits. Or perhaps play 1-20 as free to play. Though, that IS limited and would've been great if it was increased to lvl 60.

    As well, if you don't see yourself playing more than that, then your numbers won't really support a F2P model anyways, as they are more for people using more time.

    And I rather not see an expensive payment option of paying by the hour. Who had that? China?

    Especially not if my theory about Classic is coming true, then we don't need WoW to be F2P as it'll also have to feed classic servers with money, as they would be subscribed too to have access. (Theory, not facts).

    Some games are, not MMORPGS. But ok - subjective.

    Shouldnt someone who plays 800 hours a month have to pay more than someone who plays 20 hours a month?

    He uses more resources.
