    it's not going f2p

    even if it did what the hell will the players who paid for it get?
    That's exactly the thing I don't like when retail games goes F2P - people whine over it using 9.99$ years ago and still expect to get something if the thing suddenly goes free. You get the status of having been able to play the game since 2006 or whenever you bought it. You don't get some fancy hat like in TF2 when that went F2P, you get to have been able to play the game for 6 more years than the F2P'ers.

    I strongly agree with Death_God, In previous TF2, players who didn't buy the game, couldn't craft, trade( I think) Etc..

    What would garry remove from F2P players?
    Multiplayer? No. Why?!?! Cause Garry's mod was made to play Multiplayer.

    And, If it goes F2P but the previous version, Alot of servers will get confussed due to they wouldn't know how many players are choosing which. So yes, I bet he was meaning for TF2.

    People exaggerate, but if we include indie games could probably google up 5. My point was there are a plethora of games that went F2P since TF2.

    I really hope GMod doesn't Go F2P, I'd like to see Garry get more sales before. (If he ever changes his mind to) Make it free2play.

    If it was made F2P, Garry would just be asking for more Hacks to be made and more SethHack users.

    If gmod will become F2P, there should be only one restriction (that can be avoided with $10)

    Don't take it so serious.

    The idea is, there will be no restrictions for free players, except one:
    They can't connect to "sv_allowmingebags 0" servers

    So, if you don't want new players (who didn't paid $10) to join your server, just type "sv_allowmingebags 0" - i know, that's what every experienced player wanted.
    However, if you're making server for new players - type "sv_newfags 1" - and new players will see your server in "Recommended for new players"

    This server is protected by 10$
    Playing free version of GMod will result an instant kick
    Again, don't take it so serious

    Jeez, how many things do you have open?

    Also, I think setting it up like that (restricting servers to F2Pers) is not a great idea, since it'll be more likely to make them stop playing than start paying.

    You forgot about one important consequence of F2P: easy account creation.
    When HL2 deathmatch was free for nvidia&ati users, servers was filled with cheaters, because you can easily create new account and get another copy of HL2DM.
    So, if you're got banned from any gmod server, you have to pay another $10+ to join this server again.
    But if you got banned from F2P game, you can create another steam account and join this server again and again.

    Oh wow, first TF2 and now this. I certainly hope it doesn't go F2P.
    When some online dependent games start losing their popularity sometimes going F2P is the best for the community, will there be cheaters and people hopping into new accounts after every ban? Yes, probably. But it will keep the game from turning into those games where you see like 10 popular servers and the rest is empty

    Even thought Garry's mod becames free - your gonna still need to buy the other games so there's no big change,except that Millions of the people who bought the game are gonna rage & throw Molotov Coctails at Garry - but still i don't see big difference - except we get something good & i don't mean stupid Model accessory.

    Well, that sounds good idea too (if it's for the game that is) - Gold Membership will let you get exclusive content & it will cost 13$. Why 13$ ? - Because it's MAYBE gonna be implented in GMOD 13! 1:1
    Now go dumb this if you don't agree & go optimistic if you agree.

    I payed for gmod a while ago, and I feel like I've gotten my moneys worth and then some, for the extra boost in community, I'd love to see it go F2P, I just hope to dear god he doesn't make V12 F2P and V13 for us only >_>

    Who cares if he did? We have the newest version, while the mingebags are stuck on V12. Profit, we get to play with each other, and the two are kept seperate

    No, really. It's not going to be F2P.

    Yeah, I highly doubt Garry is going F2P. It would make the community worse than it already is, plus what would be the reason for making it F2P, anyway? Trying to get more attention and more players? What would be the point of all that?

    Plus, why was he even tweeting about it anyway? What's the context of all this?

    Considering you spelt "More" as "moar" I can assume you are 12.

    Anyway, if Garry's Mod becomes free, the best solution would probably be give us back at least half of the cost of GMod into our Steam wallets.

    It wouldn't make sense for gmod to go free to play, because Garry would then have to refund most if not all profits to the players who bought the game, so would valve because they split the profits with Garry.

    Personally, being the leader of a GMod community, F2P would bring in more players. If there are 'minges', you should have admins ready to take care of them.

    Valve didn't need to refund the people who bought tf2

    Why should Garry refund for gmod?

    Edited:

    Might have something to do with this actually.

    LOL! Are you serious? He'd lose millions. I'd hate to be in a company with you, dear god you'd go bankrupt in a week. Garry wouldn't owe you shit if GMod went free to play. Just look at TF2.
