Should ESO be Free to Play or Pay to Play?

Free to Play vs. Pay to Play may be the most debated topic since the announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online back in May by ZeniMax Online Studios. Both sides of the of argument have articulated their opinions as to why their payment model is better, the free-to-play team has mentioned that it would be cheaper allowing more people to play and the pay to play team likes the idea of more frequent content updates. It’s hard to tell how a game will play out in regards to its payment model, especially when The Elder Scrolls Online hasn't even launched a beta event yet but we do have some reference points.

Go with the Guild Wars model. Charge up front and for expansions, then add a trading post. Subscriptions are finished. I think f2p just ends up p2w.

I prefer paying up front. I don't mind if you jack up the price to 70$ or 80$ for a full MMO.
