Let's see how they intend to uphold their no subscription costs.

I signed up yesterday evening.

And they uphold the no subscription costs by charging you money only when you buy the game. Y'know, that thing that games used to do back in the old days.

Yea, back in the times where games used to be good.

I kid, but the amount of good games divided by the total was muuuuuch higher back then.

They uphold subscription costs by two things, one the 60 dollars per game, also by selling extra character slots, costumes, and skill packs (if they do the skill pack thing its only for PvP characters). Because buying all those skills in game cost an arm and a leg, and wasn't viable for people only PvP'd.



I hope the PvP is as intense as GW's PVP was. In todays eSports world it has a chance to become a mainstay for the competitive leagues.

SINGED, WHERE!? OH GOD, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE



Sorry, reflex.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

You mean, aside from every addon you were somewhat forced to buy on its release resulting in an average of 6-7$ per month?
Cheap, but regarding the open world factor still more than enough.

...What? Those weren't addons at all, they were basically full games in their own right. You only needed to own one to access the game and the full PvP system. If you didn't like the other games, there was absolutely no need to buy them since they didn't change the level cap at all or generally introduce any must-have items. Except Eye of the North, that actually was an expansion, but it still didn't change the level cap or give you anything drastic.

In WoW you have to buy the game, pay a hefty subscription fee, and they still release expansion packs that cost almost as much as the full Guild Wars games.

What I like about Guild Wars is that they very clearly offered you a product for an up-front price with no ********, so you could choose what to buy and not have to feel guilty if you didn't play the game for a while.
