A good MMO will encourage me to make new friends, should my existing ones not want to play. There isn't a single person I see physically every day who play MMOs, so this isn't a big deal for me. A lot of my "virtual" friends just meet in a FB group we created for just this purpose, since we're all scattered to the winds right now as far as MMO's go. Everyone is going to give XIV another shot but I can say that for myself, having my friends stick around isn't a condition of me continuing to play.

My opinion on F2P is that it creates a weak community. You have players who aren't invested in the game. You'll have much more unique users, much fewer dedicated players.

This is what I think happens with F2P. There may be a F2P MMO that comes along and proves this wrong, but I haven't seen it yet. I'd rather play with a smaller number of dedicated players, people you see day in and day out, than have a larger population initially that end up walking away in favor of something else. If you don't have to pay a monthly fee, the achievements, friendships, and time you put into your character in that game have less of a value in my opinion and are easier to abandon.
