    Warcraft is a big enough IP that if it became free to play, it could possibly and likely multiply their subscriber base, making Warcraft even more attractive as a vehicle for ad revenue, not to mention the money they would make off micro transactions and the cash shop. It could make the game more profitable than ever with more eyes on it, and three or four times their player base spending money at least once a month on micro transactions. $15 a month from say 5 million people isn't much compared to 15 or 20 million people buying $9 mounts, battle pets, and transmog armor sets.

    Say, how are those F2P MMO's doing?

    You literally have no clue what going F2P means.

    The most sucessful mmo's in the market are sub based. Curious that, wouldn't you say? I wonder why.

    There is no such thing as a free game. Your illusion of F2P would not come in the form of just mounts and outfits in the shop.
    It would mean less content support, paying for basic features like inventory space, harvest node caps, instance entry limits, etc. The design would become even grindier and RNG and the world populated by weebs with all sorts of angel, fairy and demon wings, etc.
    Basically log into GW2 and see the clown fest unleashed.
    F2P is the slow death.
    Well when you put it like that, it does sound pretty terrible. I've never played a F2P MMO, including GW.

    To be honest, considering the WoW token economy, WoW is already F2P for many people who are using gold to pay their monthly sub.

    I imagine WoW tokens generate more free $$ for Blizzard than actively producing mounts and pets on the store.

    It's anything but free. 190$ for the C.E btw.

    Are you in the EU? There are no issues in NA.

    I haven't seen nor heard any issue like that. Most addons are updated so you can use them.

    I didnt play for several days, but tried again this night - it seems many of the issues were resolved. I was online for about 2-2½ hours and did not encounter any of the freezelag Some addons still dont work but several had been updated at last.
