I prefer buy once to play, simply because I can't afford a monthly subscription right now.

But when I think about it, P2P games always have the risk of going F2P because of player population decreasing, especially when it comes to grind games. And we all know what kind of people F2P brings into the game.

I just think the B2P way is better for everyone. There's no pressure if you want to take a break for a while, you know the game is always there to return to, no need to worry about paying/cancelling your sub. When I did play a P2P game, I had a few bad months financially and had to prioritise my money on important things, so I had to cancel my sub and miss out on playing my favourite game at the time. With BDO I don't have to worry about that. It's different for everyone though and there's pros and cons to both ways. Let's just hope it all works out. :D

Best option for now one is B2P game. People usually don't know what they will do for next month and if they buy a subscription they sometimes just waste a money.

There is so many other games and if they will pay for a subscription it will be something like that they will be forced to play this game. (I don't say that if they will not pay monthly sub they will not play, they can just play sometimes other games without remorse).

Guild Wars 2 is B2P game and it was successful :)

B2P seems like the best model for this game, Not only will the paywall deter a lot of the more undesired types (Gold Sellers, Super young kids, etc.) but it also allows for players who can't really afford a monthly upkeep. This way you don't have to worry about needing to fork over cash every time you come back from a break or if your financial situation changes and you have to temporarily cancel a sub.

Yes, and it's work as a Trial now. With free account you get only core game with many restrictions... You can't even talk on global chat and put items in market. Less number of character's slots etc. Now they don't sell just a CORE game. They sell GW2 as a pack Core + DLC.
