Those players are reluctant to pay a subscription when they could instead pay to for certain items or features instead.  F2P games use gambling as a model for their microtransactions, knowing that some will keep buying stuff, like a gambling addict will keep gambling.  In the gaming industry those players are called "Whales", just like what casinos call them.

On the MMO I work in, while the game uses a subscription model, we also have microtransactions.  We have players that spend thousand of dollars on microtransactions.  When I say thousands, I mean some have spent tens of thousands of dollars on items.

I have read news stories about the amazing amounts a lot of people will pay in those games. It is exactly like the gambling industry.

I actually spent over 700 bucks over 2 years and I couldn't keep up with a lot of players.  New line of tanks and within a few hours there would be players getting tear  10 tanks. And not just a few but every match would have them.

Don't expect freedom of anything when you are a guest in somebody's house. You respect they're rules.

Not much here on the BBS either, we all agree to abide by the forum rules. Facebook is no different.
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!

Yep...pretty soon they'll be down to only 2.35 billion active users.
