Poll options are a bit stacked; 6 month period vs 3 month period etc. That said it being a year until free to play strikes me as extraordinarily unlikely.
This brings up a good point: What are the payment options available? Subscriptions "slide" at each of the first plan time spans. Does ESO offer a 1 month, 3 month, 6 month plan? Then expect the first drop to happen after the second month and precipitous drops after each period.
People dislike ESO because it is vanilla. It neither excels at classic designs nor bring new tech or design to the genre. The fact that it is bug ridden with various levels of annoying and crippling problems and seems to already be infested with scavenging bots and item duping doesn't help either.
