"Hearing Molyneux talk about why F2P monetization right now is terrible," McWilliams tweeted. "Makes me think he will be learning some hard lessons."

But an interview at allowed McWilliams to elaborate. "I actually agree with him, but I come from an environment where I recognise how challenging it is." She went on to explain more about the best and worst practices reflected in the F2P market and how this relates to the upcoming closure of Free Realms and Clone Wars Adventures.
