If this game was subscription based i would never play it, or even look into it of it's worth or not. Same for FFXIV, people might claim it's a very good game, but i don't care at al as long as it's subscription based.
It's for a very simple reason. I have my work to do, and that leaves me for only a few hours to play games per day. On top of that i like to switch up games in the lil time i have availble. Both meaning that if I pay for a sunscription based game I pay for the bigger part for time I don't spend on the game, which is the biggest waste that can be in my eyes.
The only thing subscription based gaming is good for is promoting a no good gamer addict lifestyle as players don't want to waste a single moment of the game time they payed for.
