Show me one game that has gone under since it has gone Free to Play or has less payers then before it was Free to Play, you cant, can you? Because none exist. Free to Play is the new industry standard, if you dont like it, go play checkers because in 2 years you wont fine a single MMO that is still 100% sub based.
Sorry, I have to say this because I think it's funny... Asheron's Call will likely still be free to play in 2 years
For those of you about to ask, yes I play AC also.
