Gosh I would get so addicted if it were free.

ehh, I would probably check it out again if it did go to a F2P model, The game needed alot of work and the "crafting" was a joke. I played it when the game went live, but there wasn't enough to keep me interested.

They cant compete in that market they have to go free

hopefully it'll let people branch out. WoW is a good game, but there are others that are just as good, but they lack too much of the main ingredient in the MMO recipe; players.

But I think there are many MMOs that are better than WoW, its just that WoW has taken over so much of the market that people have become completely oblivious to the fact that there are other MMOs out there besides WoW.

I don't really think ST:O will go F2P anytime soon. Although it would be cool for the first day, until everyone jumps in and ruins what is already crappy game play. Ship battles are cool, but that's all the game has imo.
