it's just an marketing gimmick. They are trying to get some people hooked and then buy the game. They are hoping for some profits and more players. Will it work? Probably not. They should have gone the microtransactions way from the launch date. They would've made a lot more money by now but hey, human greed is not to be underestimated. I on the other hand always tend to think that quantity is the way to go. If you have milions playing for free, there is a very big chance that at least 5% of those people will spend ~10$ on some cosmetics or something every month. That's like 500.000$ monthly versus, what? 10-20.000 people buying the game for 40$ once?
