this game and the elder scrolls online will both fail and convert to free to play or even shut down..there is one and only one MMORPG with solid player base and able to maintain a subscription based model which wow..even any game that will come in the future and use a subscription model will fail also..there is no change all the mmorpg are the same…players will get bored easily and leave
