http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/bioware-looking-at-free-to-play-for-the-old-republic

 

Failed now ?!?

That's officially one of the most expansive and probably one of the fastest MMO to think about going the F2P route. The guy from Bioware mentions that it's MMO in general that are loosing subs because even WoW is bleeding subs..... wake up WoW has been out for 8 years... SWTOR has been out for 8 months...

Game is going F2P till lvl 15 for full conversion however...wait for another 4 or 5 years. If Rift is still P2P i doubt SWTOR will go F2P within this year.

if you think it will be 4 or 5 years you have damn well lost your mind. This game will be shutdown by then.

Sure, games like Vanguard are still up and running while SWTOR will shut down in 5 years. I agree i am the one who lost my mind.

*rolls eyes*

This is EA we are talking about, if EA had vanguard it would have been shut down years ago. get a clue.

Take your own advice and get a clue. If EA can convert SWTOR into F2P model why the hell would they shut it down? F2P model is a gold mine these days especially for an IP like SW.


It doesn't matter if the game is free 2 play, the game is complete thrash why would people spend even more money on swtor when it goes f2p as opposed to just 15 dollars a month. it will be shut down within 5 years. if you think otherwise then you're just fooling yourself.

 4 or 5 years? This game will be f2p within the next year. Which if handled properly will be a good thing.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

It is trash in your opinion and since you can not speak for rest i would not make abusrd claims as to why would others spend money on it.

I would probably play it if it goes F2P, it isn't as bad as you are trying to make it look. Keep dreaming though, it will go F2P but not shutting down any time soon. There are lot more games which are worse than SWTOR and are doing fine with F2P model. Example STO.

Warhammer and still P2P. swtor wont be f2p anythime soon.

The more you know, the more you know you don't know.

F2P is a scam or dishonest at best. If SWTOR goes the so-called "free-to-play' route I know many many will no longer subscribe OR play.

Looking back, i'm reminded of all of the haters predicting that it would go F2P within a year... I bet that even they are a little surprised. However, free until 15 still isn't really F2P. I mean, WoW has be free until levl 20 for a while now and it's never been considered F2P. Though, I'm sure that if subs still continue to decline, then it'll go F2P. I doubt I'll try it even if that happens, because I'm sure I'll still need Origin... and I'd feel icky.

people who play a game tend to think  about spending money now and then (minor amounts, but money)

people who do not play a game, dont spend money on it.

 

it would all depend on what they are selling in their cash shop, surely people will buy cosmetics or whatnot now and then for an euro or two. those hats in TF went quite good imo *G*

 

 

 

and, what was your business economics degree again? you sound like you know more than we do... or at least you wanna make yourself sound like it *G*

They didn't have anything put in place to make it f2p, and I'm sure EA would even say it simply isn't worth the cost to make the transition for that game. Fairly obvious they had designs in motion for SWTOR considering the cash shop they will be introducing. Only thing is I would imagine they're having to introoduce these concepts a lot earlier than they anticipated or probably hoped.

Warhammer will be shut down before it goes f2p. Not gonna be the same for SWTOR.

I woudn't play this game even if it went F2P. It still wouldn't make up for the mediocre gameplay.

Something does not compute.

Today is June 15, 2012. SWTOR release was December 20, 2011 ... over 6 months? :)
