NGE, LOTRO, STO, KOTOR, Lego Star Wars > NGE 2 (SWTOR). SWG>ALL. Above hopefully subject to change.

It may be exciting for the game going FREE to play, and spending as little as possible on the game, but do not expect the game to last long. They will get little income to keep the game running.

As soon as it goes F2P, I will never sub to this game again, and not pay any money to it.

I will enjoy the 1-50 story knowing that EA are getting nada from me

If they added new content like added more story past 50 or something I like, then I would have subbed again for it in P2P, but not now, and hopefully I have enough cartel coins to pay for it. If not then still not paying for it.

"Must have pets, vehichles and XP Boosts" - I do not think so. After having that droid from collectors edition, and then the Tauntaun pet, the thought of buying another is just a waste of money as they are just things that follow you around, and I bought a new vehicle with in game credits, and I did not feel awesome with having it, the STAP from the collectors edition was still better - it was just a waste of credits, so that does not interest me either.  XP Boosts are definately not worth it.

I'm kind of looking forward to F2P. I liked SWTOR. I only canceled my sub once I heard it was going F2P. I currently love GW2, and welcome a second good title to play. =)

I was thinkin "huh, maybe something else to do on my spare time" though honestly the whole "Cartle Coins for Epic Gear" mentioned with paying subscribers really makes me want to leave this game to rot. I don't mind maybe if its for the F2P players but charging people for basic needs who are PAYING for your game is a huge no no for me.

 

Maybe if they fix it I'll be willing to play, I hate to say it but... this game (which I feel is lack luster for a P2P game) felt more compelling to me then GW2 ended up feeling despite being super generic *cringe* I can't believe I'd say that.

Before the end of the year...

So how does this ice cold water feel?

MMORPG genre is dead. Long live MMOCS (Massively Multiplayer Online Cash Shop).

Yeah it would be great to get some clarification on this.. but each time i try to submit a ticket to support i get a error message...

 

ecasue if you read the F2P page it does sound like you get your cartel coins either way but once in your account it sounds like you NEED to subscribe to get them.

 

I am greatly confused.

I'm only playing the role chosen for me. Who you supposed to be?

10/17/12 8:21:45 AM#29

I just checked.  I subbed for 3-months day 1, didn't re-sub.  I have 450 Cartel coins.   Says if I sub now I get an additional 450 which would double what I have.  No information on the value of cartel coins versus what you can buy with it.

Anyone know when it goes F2P?

In terms of the F2P debate, I support microtransactions over a constant price every month.  For a gamer like me who has limited time to play its more difficult to justify a monthly cost, than it is to justify a microtransaction purchase.  The key for me is going to be the quality of the title.  GW2 has shown you can have a quality F2P game.  Just like MMOs, F2P as a concept is evolving beyond the "old" model which was shady and bait-n-switch.   Dont believe in P2W unless the cash shop is unbalanced and sells something that gives a clear and specific advantage.  XP boosts is not an advantage.  I dont care if you get farther than me faster.  I like taking my time anyway.

i feel i should point out though that i am excited for the F2P conversion since the thing i found the most interesting was the storyline part of the game and that i will have full access to. Endgame wise i am not sure i have the energy to get invested in a good guild and gear upp and stuff... I will most likley just run a few alt's up and enjoy different aspects of the story.

Ok nevermind my earlier post.. i am not confused any longer as it only took some basic reading skills to find my answer.

 

from thr SWTOR webpage

 

"You will receive Complimentary Cartel Coins for all your previous and current subscription months. There are additional grants for the purchase of a Collector’s Edition or a Digital Deluxe Edition, as well as a one-time reward at the launch of the Free-to-Play option. You’ll only receive your Complimentary Cartel Coins if you’re active and subscribed when we go live with the new Free-to-Play option."

 

So yes... you need to be bleeding bummonkey subscribed to get your purse... Most likley the worst F2P conversion everindeed. Most other games at least gave me a perk for having bought the bleeding box at one point or the other...

 

I am sad that there really are to few people still playing to get up in arms about this... Is this is something i'd like to see change.

To get the free coins for each month you subscribed before the F2P launch you don't need to be an active sub when the transition comes. For the extra coins you get for buying the CE or DDE then yea, you need to sub up.

YOu are wrong!!!  I went to swtor and they have a place to check your cartell coins. It says that you have to sub before they go free to play in order to get your previous coins. So the faq you are pointing at is wrong wrong wrong.

i dont even think i will play it even when it goes F2P ..its just simply not that great of a game..i own it..iv played it..it plays too much as a single player game so now its collecting dust with all my other old single player games..but hey i got a month 1/2 game play out of it..im sure they will have a load of cash shops to counter the sub fee that they will be missing out on..imo i think its gonna go more F2P that ends up P2W in the long run...theres only very few titles out there that do F2P right..only time will tell i guess

Hmm...looks like the FAQ is wrong after all. Found this: http://www.swtor.com/support/helpcenter/6785

 

Why do I have to have active game time to claim my earned Cartel Coins?

The Cartel Coins that are currently visible in your Cartel Coin Ledger are a reward for being a loyal subscriber to Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. As such, the rewards will only be given to players who are subscribed when the Free-to-Play option becomes available. Please note that as long as your account still has active game time when the Free-to-Play option becomes available, we will consider you a subscriber and you will receive your reward accordingly.

That's really dissapointing =/ Bioware needs to stop with there typo's that gets there message messed up. They got the FAQ and other parts of there site saying different things.

That's correct.  You must be subbed the day it goes live or get nothing.

I have said it before... they would have to pay me to play that game.  There was really nothing in that game that made me think... this game has something different from WoW.  SWTOR was a worse version of WoW... which coming from somebody who hates WoW is not saying much.  At least with other WoW clones I could say hey I like this games combat system, or I like this games pvp or whatever... but I could say absolutely nothing positive about SWTOR.

It tells me i have I have 2250 coins at the F2P launch. I also bought the CE and a lifetime to the game. I will most likely go back and play some when it goes F2P to see what i can use the coins for, but i do not think I will put alot of time into the game. I am sure i will also have more at the F2P launch as well since you gain 250 coins at launch if you are a sub as well as each month before.

Not gonna come back for free, paid 60 for the box, and 30 after my free month. The world was lifeless. Lucas should demand a name change to star battles or space wars, and let a small studio take over the star wars ip. The ip name is worth millions alone, but this game does justice to nothing in the star wars universe. Lifeless space battles, small planets... Disgusting.
