First brilliant thing I've seen Funcom do in years!



Making the vanilla game free might actually bring people into the AO world, even if the game is way past its prime.



Sadly, if they had done this 2 years ago, right before shadowlands came out, it would have brought a huge surge of new life to the game...people would get hooked on the vanilla AO and then be compelled to buy the expansion packs

Hey, voodooextreme posted about it, too.



My guess is that this offer will save AO bigtime.  I have to say once more that this move is just.....brilliant.  I swear I nearly d/led AO before a good hard smack reminded me that I'd never see the sunlight again if I played another mmorpg :p

Yeah, I think it is a brilliant marketing ploy.



It will surely attract plenty of noobs .... and plenty of assholes pretending to be noobs.  :)







oh, ... and what do you need sunlight for deacon? .. you already have a good tan.

yeah, thats what I was telling my friend.



He's been looking for a new video game.



I told him to play AO, and register free accounts. Make a game out of seeing how many accounts he can get banned.

That's what Eve Online has been doing for at least a year now. It seems to have worked out very well for them. In my opinion, it's a good thing for AO, lag issues aside. After all, no matter how jaded we old timers might have become over the years, AO is still a good game.
