Good luck. You'll need it, because the rest of us will pay for the subscription like the sheep that we are.
But in all serious, I was always going to pay for it for just the online anyways. It's just too big of a component in gaming this day and age, even if I used Xbox One or PS4 I'd cough up the $60 no questions asked just for the online access alone. A video game system without online play just isn't imaginable to me, GBA is the only console I've ever owned without it after all.
