commented on It’s time for World of Warcraft to go free-to-play
You just listed EXACTLY the reasons why WoW should still maintain a subscription. Now don't get me wrong,I love the game and I would love to see it F2P...someday. Right now subscriptions are down,but not enough to really take a toll on Blizzard's finances. Warlords of Draenor will help to reclaim many of the subscriptions that were lost,and the in-game store helps to maintain some of the funds as well. There's no reason for the company to switch their p2p model when there's still money to get out of it.
