Heck of a money suck, more like.

I HATE F2P games and i espically HATE F2P MMOs. Great MMOs got ruined and change to pay to win, so I am in favour of monthly fee MMO (Like FFXIV)

However after trying TESO Beta, It doesn't feel like an MMO. Its TES with a co op mod which is avaliable on other TES. Its not worth the monthly fee in my opinion.

As i've mentioned before, this game is trying to please both the SP and MMO community. Neither of them are getting what they want, and so this is leading to a grim fate.

Not that they haven't planned for ir though, as their intention is F2P later.

but its too much man, im enjoying beta right now, i know its just gonna get better and so on.. but 60$ plus 15 every month , its a fucking steal for me , if its 15 for 3 months i would maybe accepted it

Check out Angry Joe's early impressions (Levels 1-10) posted yesterday. They allow him to break NDA:

This is how I felt that last beta.

So you get to buy the game, pay a monthly subscription and then you even have to buy a special edition of the retail copy to actually unlock the full game.
All right, so, now that NDA has partially lifeted and people are allowed to talk about the game, people can no longer claim the majority enjoyed the game but just can't talk about it(looking at you 'thekhurg'). This is turning out to be the sub-par experience I thought it since I get an early viewing, and that I have been calling it since getting time with the beta myself.
It is a watered down version of what today's ES game is and all they are doing is milking the hardcore fanbase before this goes f2p. I give it a year or so before that happens.

Don't care about the monthly fee as long as it is good. All of the top 5 all time MMO of all time have monthly fees in their time while F2P games barely register.

Ultima Online
Asheron Call

There are plent of good F2P games out there sure. But none of them can break into this list of giants.
