Which ever one is doing the worst. Rift, Eve, WoW, and ToR are all doing fine.

I'm hoping TERA, but that will probably never happen. :P
Doubt Old Republic will be f2p anytime soon, biiiig hype atm.
Probably Eve online, then Rift.

I understand that These are top MMOs and they are all doing well, just thought I would see what people thought would go to f2p first :D as I said above, I think WoW will as it has already an unlimited trial and a fall in subs, but I hope TOR goes f2p.

TERA will go f2p, WoW will not for quite some time, they have Mists coming soon and I doubt they'd make it free to play before it comes, if even after that, took EQ decades to go f2p and it's not actually f2p now anyway, WoW is considerably more powerful then EQ ever was.

EVE, maybe, it's quite clear they'd do anything for extra income.

TOR, no, lore is too powerful, no need to expand your playerbase when you're the only one on the market with one of the most popular lores ever.

Rift, probably, eventually, never really cared much for the game.

I bet it will be Rift, iva played this myself for quite a time, until we got content cleared, then it got fucking boring, and you got like 500 active players per server. so my guess is that rift wont make it very long.

I would say either WoW or Rift. I see it more likely being WoW just because it is such an old game. I remember my friends in High School playing which was at least 7 years ago.

I am surprised that EVE hasn't started looking into a free-to-play model. They've already got all the trimmings they need for it, especially with the PLEX being part of the in-game economy.

In fact, I think their economic model, involving the PLEX as an item, is reflected in other games that allow you to buy into a game by selling premium time on the marketplace in the game. I find that particular interesting and while the fact that they caused a user uproar by adding items that use purchased-elements -- I think that CCP might be able to sooth that by making sure the free-to-play vs premium is all about services and not about gameplay.

Since EVE is literally all about gameplay. (Well, and robbing people blind -- and blowing things up -- and vast interstellar wars -- and intrigue -- holy crap EVE drama is amazing.)

I'd be amazed if WoW went free-to-play, but shockingly they're still nearly 10 million strong and they make even more money on top of that with a virtual item shop. WoW would lose money going free-to-play at this point. Rift, of course, is loudmouthed about their resistance of free-to-play so its anybody's guess if Trion Worlds will change their mind.

I see Guild Wars on the list -- since Guild Wars 2 is expected to be free-to-play ... that seems a bright candidate to me. :)
