I'm taking a software business class, and I'd like to hear your opinions. This survey about Free-to-play is 4 questions and takes only 30 seconds. If you could answer as yourself, and not as an 'average gamer'. If you're reading this right now, you're already within the target (MMO veterans, armchair designers, forum-goers, and bloggers).
If you'd like to continue the discussion here, feel free to leave a comment when you finish. Here are the discussion points:
1 - Subscription required to try
2 - Free 30-day trial
3 - Free unlimited-time trial
4 - Completely free-to-play
The focus is
- What do MMO veterans, forum-goers, armchair designers, and bloggers (i.e. Not-The-Average-Gamer) see as the maximum barrier to entry to even try an MMO in the first place?
- Just how big is the gap between Free unlimited-time trials and Free-to-play for you? If there is a gap, why does it matter to you?
