Is the game already B2P? (lucky)

I downloaded the game a couple of hours before the patch (I’m led to believe it was a big one). In fact, when the download finished, I could not play at all since the game was till updating. After, I was to play for free and all (and really got into it).

My question is did I just get really lucky and got in before the game got B2P? doesn’t matter much though as I plan on getting the premium stuff but was I really just that lucky?

I read yesterday that you need to have finished prologue to continue to play for free from now on. Sounds like you got lucky. Congrats!
