Unless I am wrong, F2P accounts can still VIEW the forums.
They can go to the class forums and look for advice, they can read the general forums (if they are brave)...
The only restriction they have, is that they can't POST........... In a game that already doesn't provide enough incentive to be an actual subscriber over a Free or Premium account, why take away let another thing?
This. You want a voice, you put down your commitment to the game. Its just fair.
