Premium QUAKE LIVE Coming

VG247 reports from QuakeCon that John Carmack has confirmed plans to add a premium subscriber component to QUAKE LIVE, their completely free (for now) online shooter, though he adds that it will likely always include a free element. He also tells them that this web-based version of QUAKE III Arena is not a failure and that it is not in danger. There's no indication for now of what form a premium service will take.

Is this a Zenimax decision? You can't just give stuff for free and then charge for it without repercussions. I predict the user-based to drop by at least 50% or much more.

Free alternatives: Nexuiz, Alien Arena, OpenArena, Warsow, UrbanTerror, and I'm sure there are many more that I don't recall.
