Same as WoW. £8.99 or $14.99. You get a free month when you purchase a copy of the game. Also there will be a free 7 day trial from launch.

They can ask for money, doesn't mean they're all good, just like anything. As for FF14 as a game, players say it became better already, that it's actually an enjoyable game now, I don't know what players of Asian MMOs would find enjoyable except the grind, but if it were a free to play MMO it wouldn't go from terrible to pretty enjoyable in such a short amount of time, but anyway, a good MMO will always cost money to play and there will always be bad games in any genre.

Same monthly fee's as WoW or Everquest 1 and 2. And I'll be going for the 6 month plan.

What? No one claiming that the sub fee is pointless right now, as it'll be free to play in a few months because it'll be a huge flop? I am suprised. Really.

Does ff14 even have a monthly fee? Last time I checked it didn't.

Edit: Yeah just checked still no monthly fee. FF14 is completely F2P.

Temporary measure. You still have to buy the box though before you can play it.

Nah it won't flop. It already has 1.5 million preorders + and it has Bioware behind it. It also carries the Star Wars name which is a bonus. Also i'm a beta tester and after playing it? No way In hell it will flop.

No one is claiming the sub fee is pointless because it's not. It's the same as every other decent MMO. (GW aside)

And if it changes next year, what does that make it? Temporary? There you go. It's going to be reverted back to subscription when the game meets the standards of its developers. This has been said on numerous occasions.

But what if it doesn't change? What ifs aren't debatable. Until it does in fact change it's F2P.

Who said it's a matter of "what if"? Let me repeat, the developers have stated on numerous occasions that the game will be switched back to a subscription model. Until then, you still have to buy the box which comes no where close to being F2P. If anything, you should liken it more to Guild Wars: Buy to Play (B2P).

yeah, I was being a bit sarcastic. I believe it'll be able to hold it's own. Won't be killing wow or anything, but it'll definitely hold it's own.

GW is not a MMO and it depends on how restrictive GW 2 is with the MMO elements, before pairing it with games like WoW, EVE, SW: TOR, etc.

The game will flop cause ewoks is not a playable race.
