GW2 this, GW2 that. I hate to say this, but the game would fail as a subscription MMO because it isn't worth subscribing to. That is why they have an alternative revenue plan. They don't want EoS to make GW2 money, they want to make it worth subscribing to, and therefore make a lot more money. If that fails, THEN they can go FTP as a backup plan, there is no reason to START as a FTP game.

Correct. And if you play WoW versus GW2 then surely you understand why WoW is a much more robust experience. The combat, the class diversity, the content, ***THE PVP*** is all vastly superior to GW2. I played GW2 and I enjoyed it but as JB just said it would not have survived as a subscription game and they knew that. Yet WoW still thrives to this day. Also, for the record, I haven't played WoW in years but I'm not so obtuse as to not appreciate what they've created.

I believe that ESO has the potential to be a WoW rival. I would really like it to be successful because I enjoy having a fun MMO to play.
