"I think it is wrong to keep people waiting for a game for over a year and then just tell everyone it's not f2p like everyone had assumed."
It isn't wrong considering the amount of time and effort that has gone into the making of the game so far, whilst like you say, all you have done is wait. We wouldn't even be having a v2 of the game if it wasn't for the people redeveloping it. Once the game is completed how on earth do you think it'll be able to stay up and running? I don't think everyone assumed it would be free to play at all.
Oh and what's up Ayden!
