I started out in the open beta when it was officially free-to-play, and the discovery that they didn't actually mean it have left a bad taste in my mouth over the game (despite how visually impressive the game is). The subsequent discovery that it's actually a lot more heavily pvp-prone (and apparently it can be non-consensual, even if you're not flagged for pvp) has ensured I don't go back, regardless of how much they've reduced the cost to play.
(It's oddly satisfying being stubborn about such things as this)
Still, the drop in prices is a positive move on their part - nice to see they actually made substantial reductions across the board.
