Quote from: Goober King on June 04, 2013, 11:50:40 amYea, this gets a resounding "meh" from me. Alls it'll do is create another temporary spike on Ferruccio's little chart before everyone says "derp it's still the same ol' AW" and go back to fighting off kamikaze shrubs or whatever the kids are doing these days.The thing about F2P is you don't do it to bring in more people, you do it to bring in more money from the people you already have. It's not as if there are people saying to themselves "Man, I'd really love to play this game, but I just can't afford the $8/month!" If you're product is awesome enough, people will find a way to pay for it. And if you're product is awesome enough, a community will organically form around it and find ways to sustain itself. You shouldn't have to bribe a community with freebies to get them to stick around. If AWI thinks this will save their product, and if the community thinks this'll save themselves, then they're both in for another round of disappointments.
