I think companies can make a lot more money off of the LoL model. I can imagine that people have spent more than $50-$60 on LoL, which is good for Riot.
Make that $500-600, easily, over the 12-18 months I played it. Why? Because you aren't forced to, and the illusion of freedom (or the temptation of perks) is a much more enticing game model than the forced subscription fee.
This is why companies want in on this model. Even Blizzard's $15/mo only makes $180 in the same time period.
Depending, server, race, faction etc changes are also available.--
