It's a marketing masterpiece on Blizzard's side. Because they knew the media would overreact and say "OMG WOW GOES F2P!!" and totally derail the truth. It also gives trials a more in depth experience and the option to take their time with the game.

^well said, it also helps compete with some other MMOs (lotro, WAR) as it lets you play this longer then the week it used to give....not that it really needs help competing though haha. My issue though is that my account ran out of time, and i just wanna try it again, but id have to make a new account to level up again to 20 :/
