I think most of us are smart enough to realize that BnS going B2P is as likely to happen as the world ending tomorrow. Game developers spend a lot of time and resources making their products, so one would think they'd like to be not only properly compensated for their work but to make profits on top. Logically, a P2P model would generate more revenue in the long term compared to B2P.
True but look at some of the MMO's that have come out some what recently in the states. Champions online started out as p2p but eventually when f2p, DC universe online is free to play with a p2p option that dose not hinder the play expirice in any way as far as I know, and the most recent example is Star wars knights of the old republic that recently went free to play, Aion is now free to play. Terra might be able to go on as a p2p game and I don't think World of Warcraft is going anywhere being the giant that it is. P2P is certainly the better option service wise however with some of the changes some mmo's have made they might want to look into other payment options.
I however would not be phased one bit if BnS was a p2p and I would still play it every now and then.
