wow was free until level...15? I think? I downloaded it for free...
its free till lv 20, but that's a relatively new thing, it was always $15 month, an thing past lv 20 you gota pay for it.
lv 20 barly gives you a chance to see the game, first area of the world is lv 1-60, then it goes off to another world for 60-70, then yet another whoel new world for 70-80, and again for 80-85 and 85-90, and a new ne for 90-100 coming sonish.
theres sooooooooooo many thigns to do in it, witch is what many new mmos have been having issues with, is the lack of things to do. itsd hard to go up againt a game that has been worked on and plosihed for well over 8 years now. and is still going strong.
elder scrools has its work cut out for it. but I wish it the best, maybe finaly give wow some competition to make them get off there butts and improve the game more.
