Just because he joined after F2P launched doesn't mean he is wrong. When you purchased the game, you were allowed to install the game, then play for a predetermined period of time. Once that time ran out, you needed to pay the monthly subscription fee. Now that the game is F2P, you don't need to pay for the game to install it. However, you are limited in what quests you can do unless you either buy the quest packs or subscribe. If you are VIP and drop your subscription, you also lose access to all quest packs that you did not individually purchase. It has always been that way, but now, if you don't pay per month you can still play the game, but you lose access to quests. Join date doesn't matter in this instance (or any really), pay attention to what was said in the reply. PS, don't be rude to people, it has a way of biting you in the rear.
