Smart move on their part; give the beta away free for a month; then when released charge $14.95 a month after a bunch of the beta people are hooked! great marketing. If game is good, word of mouth should really help this new game!

Actually the game has been around a few years. They are completely changing how its marketed. It was a $14.95 a month game. The only thing is they were losing subscribers since there are so many pay to play MMOs out there. Actually I think the micro-transaction approach is great. But I can also see how you can end up spending more than the subscription would have been. LOL
