All joking aside, I have nothing against F2P done well. I just imagine SE would end up being worse at it than anyone. Tanaka is a sadistic throwback to the days of old school Everquest. That's obviously what inspired his ideas for FFXI, and he hasn't learned anything at all since. He doesn't want to. If anyone would have a cruel and unreasonable implementation of F2P it would be him.
