I don't see why they are waiting so long to go fully F2P.

My understanding is that it's not as simple as flipping a switch. There are lots of changes needed to make the game to support the F2P model that can't happen over night.

Well of course it's not. Given their resources, it shouldn't take this long either. As I said, I fully expect there to be kinks to work out once it is applied as well. I just don't see how a project of this cost and of this size could not have had this as part of the plan all along...or at least part of the backup plan. If it did not that would only lend more credence to my assertion that the project management and planning has been atrocious.

Teams that are much smaller and with less resources have gone through this process, start to finish, in a much shorter period of time...and I suspect it is because they knew all along it was a possibility and made preparations ahead of time where needed. Considering every thread about this game on just about every gaming site on the planet, since it's announcement, has had at least one post that said something like "F2P in 6 months"...how on Earth would the developers themselves not have at least laid down the groundwork?

I would think the beta for it would at least be on the test server by now. Anybody know if it is?
