So what? He made it sound like they needed to get cashflow from somewhere, as if they were struggling. That's not the case, it was a very successful product. If they want to do this out of greed to make even more money then that is certainly their right but people painting them in any other light is ridiculous. I don't like products I've paid for going F2P without compensating players unless there is no other alternative. Then there's a myriad of gameplay related reasons why F2P can be bad in the hands of a greedy company but others have covered that.
