Really tempting, might be worth taking a tour down memory lane.
This despite the fact soe's plan still isn't as good as LotR's. Even after soe updated the plan, from the disastrous initial plan at EQII F2P launch. It's like soe enjoys not making money by having more subscribers. It's always the subscribers that suffer the most and they just bleed off.
One particular thing stands out and there's nothing in soe Everquest faq. Turbine offers 3 month discount for subscribing instead of the $15, you get it for $10 per month. Guess soe doesn't want their servers to fill up with people spending money for 3 months at a time.
Of course it could just be soe's Corporate baseless sense of entitlement, too.
