33. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online to Use Subscriptions Aug 21, 2013, 13:57 jdreyer
Yeah, I agree with others here, and it was my first thought as well: They really should be going with a Guild Wars model. They might make more money doing subscriptions then moving later to Free to Pay, but they'll create a lot of ill will in the process. Given that they sold millions and millions of copies of Skyrim, most of those at either full price or only slightly discounted, they would have no trouble selling it. People want to play Skyrim with their friends, and the GW model hews closest to that. As someone mentioned, subscription models result in grindy gameplay, and that's going to turn a lot of Elder Scrolls fans off.
