It is way too much freedom. You can just download the game and play for free. A whole freaking game with 8 stories for free. All a sub does is speed up leveling and makes game easier.

You get a lot more as a sub than simply leveling sped up. You should probably play the game before posting in the forums.

I love LOTRO, but I hate the payment model, the only reason I have every quest pack in that game is because I played through with someone who had nobody else willing to do it with them, and I got them all on sale/in the super cheap physical expansions when they were still available. And don't forget they charge for every other extra in the game too (extra classes, races, mounts, quick travel blahblahblah).

I'm a sub here, but I will stop playing if they go to that model. For f2p'ers they are already charging for the new quests added last patch, and i'm sure they will do the same for the rest of the expansion content. As subscribers we get this content free, almost everything a f2p'er has to buy AND we get 500 coins a month. Seems like a good deal to me. Keep the base experience free to people who don't spend a penny, allow buyable perks and give subscribers everything + free coins is a great deal imo.

Besides, anyone saying the F2P option is TOO good is clearly full of it. If they really thought it was such a good deal that it made subscribing obsolete, they would just cancel their subscription and downgrade to Preferred status - which is even BETTER than the basic F2P option they claim is so good.

Healthy games run server merges and cut down servers?
