IF it was just the exit poll, I agree with you. However there is a lot of readily available market analysis available on the internet that clearly demonstrates a change in player preference away from fixed subscriptions. Subscription only MMOs are a minority of MMO revenue now and contracting at ~ 10-15% per year when compared to various F2P models.

Sure, those of us who have played MMOs for years on a monthly subscription model sometimes get fixated on it as the only way to go. But that is narrow focused and if all you want is a niche audience it works fine. If you want to tap into a much wider, more casual (casual as in approach to a game, not play style) then you need to broaden your access model. Freemium is exactly that.
