    I have a hard time justifying any monthly fee, especially when it is something that you can otherwise probably get for free. It always just comes down to means and expectations though, so it just depends.

    For me i don't think it is and as rz3300 stated it all comes down to personal preferences.

    I think it's always worth it for those who have been following the game for a long time. For beginners, I don't know if it would be so valid to "invest" in it (at least for now).

    I find subscription types games not worth my time and money. I would say many are bowing out of the FF lineup online for same reason. I guess for many of us it can be lot different in that case. But we just have to understand what may work and may not work in that case though.

    I think it's relatively worth it based on what you want

    I think it is worth it. But as Overcast has said, many gamers are going to drop it and opt for different games because at this day and age, who is really willing to pay for games? I acknowledge that the expansion may have its benefits and may have cost the developers a lot, but the burden should not fall on the gamers.

    I am not into subscription based services. I have wasted a lot of money and time on those things. And on that point you can see that monthly payouts on those are not worth it. I would surely be not spending time on that.

    Kind of depends on your level of comfort with spending and disposable income and all that boring stuff, but sure if you can afford it it certainly has its advantages. I try to avoid these extra costs though.

    Subscription money is not comfort dependent though. It is more or less pocket dependent. So it may not be something people can make use of in such case. I guess we have to understand where things go wrong. And hopefully things can change in if the subscription is removed.
