    Not anytime soon, it is still profitable for Blizzard (excluding Asian market). I guess expansion after MOP we will see larger decline in WoW subs and it will go F2P within next 5 years. Id really talk about in more detail but its rather irrelevant, its just a game ^^

    Free accounts are free, it is only a one time fee of $5 to play on a silver account, gold accounts are $14.99 unless you pay for more in advance, recurring gold membership accounts get 500 station cash per month as long as you are recurring.

    also wizard and druid ports are not outdated as some of the zones are easier to get to with a port to this day.

    i'm sorry only the gold memberships are per month pay.

    old players returning automatically go to a silver account, you still have your characters but won't be able to make more without either buying the unlocks or going to a gold account.

    you get what you pay for.

    I got a mail saying "we went F2P, your account is now Silver". I thought "cool", because it was only a trial account, but turned out the mail was in error.

    Not that I really want to play that. I enjoy EQ2 enough (spent $25 on it so far since it went free to play) so if I ever go back to gaming I'll go that way.
