Well, I guess this comes to no surprise to some people:

 

http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/7/31/3207160/star-wars-the-old-republic-going-free-to-play-this-fall

 To all those who doubted...all I have to say is....we told ya so.

 

This is incredible. One of the most expensive MMO's ever created going F2P in under a year.

 

All eight character storylines up to level 50 will be accessible with restricted access to new content and advanced features. Some of these restrictions can be removed by "purchasing" access with Cartel Coins, the new virtual currency to be introduced in the fall. Unlimited access including higher-level content and new features will be available through subscription options.

"Players want flexibility and choice. The subscription-only model presented a major barrier for a lot of people who wanted to become part of The Old Republic universe," said GM of BioWare Matthew Bromberg in a press release.

Beginning in the fall, players will have free-to-play and subscription options. Players can purchase on going subscriptions or play advanced content by redeeming Game Time Cards. Subscribers will receive monthly allowances of Cartel Coins, which can be used to purchase in-game items, gear, and convenience features.

"Since launch, we've been listening to feedback from our fans and adding new content and refining The Old Republic at a breakneck pace," said executive producer Jeff Hickman. "We believe we are in a position to help improve the service even more, not only by continuing to add new content, but also by expanding the game to many more Star Wars fans, increasing the populations on worlds and the vibrancy of the community."

Now it will be bad with restrictions! <--Joking Oh well, I am partial to the game but I'm glad it is going this way. My son and I did have many hours of fun playing until the population started dropping.

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

I'm sure there are many of us that saw this well before you and your "group" did. So yeah, you didn't tell us a damn thing.

If it's true then I'll play it F2P with my son and wife if she's interested.  It's not worth a sub, but it does look like it's worth a spin to level cap with my family.  If it's decent I'll even throw a few bucks their way for unlocks.

Well I'm glad I didn't renew my suscription.. I might finish now my level 44 main, though with Skyrim and GW2 at the same time, I'll have no social life lol.

I'm guessing they would rather just let them die slowly and earn minimal profit from them.. for TOR their probably desperate to earn back anything they can

The problem is that PvP game just wont work well as F2P games.

A F2P game need to sell pretty much stuff to earn in it´s costs and that means they will sell gear that actually makes you more powerfull in combat. Just selling cosmetic stuff works if you release as B2P and sell many boxes and expansions, but I am not so sure many people right now would buy any expansions for either of those games even if they cut the monthly fees.

TOR on the other hand is mainly PvE and those games have converted well to F2P in the past. Selling some unbalanced stuff is still not great but it doesn't impact the game in the same way.

I actually hoped that TOR would do better and be able to keep a million player as P2P, but it became clear pretty fast that the game just was too focus on soloplayers to be able to do that long term. I think it would be a lot better for the genre with a few games with 1-3 million players than a single 10M giant and many with 500K players or less.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

7/31/12 3:12:50 PM#14

As long as they let me keep my unlimited free trial characters and give me about as much freedom as subscription players (i.e. don't severly limit bank/invenotry space, prevent me from chatting/joining guilds, etc.) I am not going to complain.

In fact, instead of restricting us, they should give us ads.

I prefer ads to restricted features.  Ads are everywhere, so why not in the game?  I will welcome ads in SWTOR as long as they let us play it the way it should be played: (mostly) restriction free.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

Better than what SoE does and makes you play as a gimped out character that is useless to anyone. At least you can still use the gear that you get on those restricted dungeon runs.

I would like to take this opportunity to act like so many acted to me while posting what was greatly missing from the game in order to try make it better over the last year (last 4 months of beta included)...so it would NOT go F2P in such a short amount of time.

Nothing to see here folks...move along...all is well.
