So as of late the trend in the MMO world has been for players to call a triple A release going F2P (Free to Play) at a certain time in its current life. And it seems that sadly a lot of predictions of this come true. While im not saying that F2P is bad, but usually going from a sub base to a F2P base means something is not right in the world (AHEM SWTOR). Anyways, so to keep this doom and gloom prediction trend alive with the looming full release of GW2 I am calling it now that within the year Arenanet will make the announcement that Guild Wars 2 will be going to a Subscription model.
You heard it here first!
Guild Wars 2 subscription fee by August 2013.
