According to an analyst from GameSpot, despite the promised monthly paid subscription model for The Elder Scrolls Online, it will eventually shift to a free-to-play model. This will, without doubt, add microtransactions.


So what are your thoughts on this? Should it be free-to-play or should it stick to monthly subscription model, or do you have any other possible payment ideas?

I, personally, think that monthly fees filter the community making it more mature and therefore more likeable. Additionally, microtransactions, most of the time, mean that you'd have to spend a lot more in the game to actually be good at it.

What payment model should The Elder Scrolls Online be?

Edit: Eh, had to add "One time purchase" option.
