commented on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn would be shut down without a subscription plan, says Naoki Yoshida
Biased and uninformed. F2P is the worst model possibly available and most susceptible to pay to win. I'd rather have dedicated, hardcore guild mates who pay to enjoy the game rather than a few 16 year old teens who needed something to do for their bank holiday Monday. Get your act together man, having a subscription based model isn't an 'excuse', it's an homage and encouragement for a commited fanbase.
