Well, I'd hoped to play through to the end-game content prior to any changes that may encompass the game when it switches over to free-to-play. However, due in part to my own snail's pace through the game, this is unlikely. The point Iron Will's at now can be reached in about an hour if you rush, though it's taken me about twenty since I've paused to take screenshots and write several pages of superfluous description every three to four minutes of gameplay.
The other contributing factor to why this is so unlikely is that CHAMPIONS ONLINE WILL BE FREE IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS.
No, seriously, they just announced that yesterday.
So, if you've been reading this blog, or just started, and think it looks like a good time, now's your chance to try it out free of charge. Some of the specifics might be different in your game experience than mine... I don't know what changes they've made to the free version of the game... but I'll continue playing through the paid version and updating this sporadically.
Check it out if you'd like to! Or, you can keep watching me check it out. That's an option too.
