People don't seem to realize the "free" content would likely limit players to something like Level 19. How many characters can you level to 19 until you decide you want some of that epic armor?
The "Free to Play" scheme would be mostly a marketing ploy, you already have your trial periods, which make people invest in their characters so they convert to subscriptions, the "free 2 play" scheme wouldn't be all that different, except it wouldn't expire.
So if you want to continue playing your level 80+ characters you'd have to keep your pay account.
People also seem to forget that Blizzard can make share holders happy by pimping out their old IP's, and new ones, like this hush hush MMO they are working on.
