Wakfu sounds like some odd form of martial arts, but is actually a very original tactical MMORPG. Learn about trackers, politics, and all sorts of stuff here.
I may need to try that out...F2P, correct?
Not sure... Dofus, the other MMO by this company, is technically F2P but is really more of a subscription-based MMO with a limited trial. I don't think they've released full details of their payment plan/s for Wakfu yet.
I won't touch it if it's not F2P, mostly because I do not have a steady amount of money coming into my hands. So P2P is out of the question.
I asked Ankama about revenue models for Wakfu back in 2009 (see 2nd question). I shared my experience that Dofus was more of a trial in the question, and they disagreed.
Anyway, related to Wakfu, Ankama told me:
