OP  6/03/13 9:26:10 AM#1

hello! i used to play for three months when it first released.

now me and some friends are thinking of starting again, but as F2P players.

i just want to ask, what are the restrictions for F2P users?

i heard something like a limit to the warzones and flashpoints you can play per week, or the use of the trading post and trading with others.

can you please tell me? thanks.

thanks for the help m8.

 

but...

5 warzones per week (!)

3 flashpoints per week.

no operations.

no emergency fleet pass.

cannot equip purple items (!)

slower Valor gain.

 

this is no F2P, this is.. mocking your customers right in their face.

SWTOR is not completely free to play, it has a hybrid model and probably something over half a million subscribers which is a great number that places this game behind World of Warcraft in term of sub numbers.

Since that is the case people simply cannot expect to have all the privileges for free, subscribers have the upper hand as well as they should, this is good AAA title with a strong IP, not some f2p garbage with pay to win cash shops and legions of exploiters.

On the up side you can buy authorizations and just about everything else from the galactic trade market with in game credits.

if you played for 3 months then your account doesn't have as much limitations as free account so if I were you I'd use that account :)

you can play your story up to max lvl without limitations, but basically it's still P2P game.

Actually there is unlocks for practically everything...so at the end of the day if i had to guess and put a number to it, I'd say that a preferred status player probably gets 95% of everything that a sub gets access to....that's a lot considering you don't have to spend a single dime of real money to get that 95% of content.

 

so unless you just want to support the game and help pay devs to keep creating content, then there is no real advantage over subbing verse preferred status or free to play....

I might be mistaken but isn't a customer someone who pays for a service/feature/item?

You get a whole game for free with some restrictions that are mostly pointless anyway and the ones that aren't, you can easily buy unlocks or passes from GTN for credits or get some unlocks from some quests.

"A whole game................with restrictions".............so it is not a whole game. :)

 

SWTOR F2P is just a unlimited trial. You like it and want more? Go sub...

Treat F2P as a trial and you can't be disappointed with the content being available.

Hmm if i remember correctly: You can do more then 3 flashpoints and it even say so if you hoover over the  dots in the list, you can only get full loot from 3 flashpoints, but you can still do more then 3 flashpoints, you just don't get loot. xD I'm a prefered player, but the dot said same thing on both f2p and prefered.

You can unlock everything you need with ingame credits. The only real limitations for former subscribers are the 350k credits limit and the 2h instead of 30min quick travel. You can farm the credits needed for a weekly operation pass in less than 2 hours, doing stuff that you'll do anyway. Forget what the haters say, I'm actually playing the game like this and i know exactly what i'm talking about. I can go into very deep detail if you want.

No you are wrong.

 

You need to buy the expansion to go from 51-55.

 

You can not go all the way to "max" as a f2p.  Hardly a free to play system when you need to spend money, but that's how it is.  Welcome to EA.
