Finally, somebody is getting the picture
Torchlight 2 is launching with no subscription fee. Finally somebody has figured out that while you might make more money for a month or two, you'll get a lot more customers (including me) if you don't put hurdles in the way for your audience. I really like the Pay for Content and then Own it Model that DnDOnline uses. Lotro uses the more questionable one which is "pay for content and stat increases..." not as cool, but still better than: pay 15 bucks a month whether you want to play or not, and constantly ask yourself, "Is this really worth my money? Is this money really worth worrying about? Can I play enough of this to get my money's worth and not get in trouble with my spouse?" I can't wait for Guild Wars 2. Definitely going to try it out.
