I have been doing a lot of reading by some players on Steam and other MMO forums. I have come to a conclusion based on my research. You can change the starting area and tutorials all you want. You can listen to the hardcore players who will continue to gladly pay $12.95 per month for this game. But you will NOT get new players (which is whole the point of a Steam release by the way) if the game continues to have a subscription fee of $12.95. There are way too many buy to play and free to play options out there. This is a very crowded market; not like 1997. UO is already going to be laughed at for that price point and how the in-game economy is a joke. This current fee does not protect you from all of the scripters and botters that have been running rampant for the past 10 years. The economy has tanked because of it. New players will have to spend hundreds of dollars to catch up, or alternatively have to bot/script for massive amounts of time. In short, if this is just for the sake of a Steam greenlight sales pitch, its going to fail massively.
