I suppose I can take this as a compliment, since you found the unavoidable truth somewhat entertaining.

 

The truth hurts sometimes.  Face up to it and stop calling truth-tellers whiners?

Maybe if you posted your whines less frequently I wouldn't have even noticed.  But at least you are coherent and mostly reasonable and so I can't justify just blocking you.  Just because I think you're whining a lot, it doesn't mean I think you are wrong.  I jsut think you complain too much about the same thing over and over.  Maybe it's time to move on.

Aww I'm sorry I crapped on your game.  I'd like to say that I'll do better next time.

But I'll call crap as I see it, so no promises.

 

A shame you might ignore me, I actually liked what you had to say in other threads, Frodo.  I wish it was bi-directional.

Didnt think it was possible but TORtanic struck a second iceberg.


Way to go EA and BioWare.

They should make a new term for this type of game from F2P to PITA2P

I was playing around with STO waiting for TOR to go F2P... now not so much.

 

STO has a far superior F2P model, with this one hotbar nonsense it certainly seems like EA simply wants their game to die.

They want you to sub, and you get so much by subbing that with the f2p, it's worth it, unless you are going to play it super casual.

Screen shot, or it didn't happen.

 

The gist of this thread is not about subscibing, but about EA's "F2P" model.. which is not exactly free if someone wants a standard MMO.

 

A model like this drives me away.  The fact that it is an EA game is a little comforting.  The fact that it is a Star Wars game hurts, bad.

 

 

 

Oh oh, I didn't mean, this game is worth subbing over at all.  I enjoy it again, so I am.  Most won't because the end game is just atrocious, the pvp is meh (well, it's not bad before you hit 50), and it is lacking in some areas.  Others won't even think about trying the f2p because it's EA or Bioware.  I meant, if you plan on playing this game a lot, subbing is worth it, compared to being nickled and dimed in the shop.  If you plan on spending a few bucks, you might as well sub and get it all.  But, that's generally how most shops are.  It is very much free, all the way to 50. You don't get stuck below that.  There are some very questionable items in the shop, but you can still get to 50 free.

If I am making friends and having fun I am far more likely to sub than if you try to make everything inconvenient.

The official forums is full of shills, who promote anything and everything EA offers.

 

It is against the law for EA to advertise and promote / criticize others for their own agenda on external sites, like this one.

 

Having EA promote their own products on their own websites is like going to a Coke(tm) website and reading about how it's #1 in a taste test.

 

The SWTOR official forums can be entertaining, maybe even informative, but you need to skip through all the BS.  EA pays people to shill.  Hi Andryah :-)

 The offical forum is comedy gold at times. I can only hope that the people inside of the game itself are far better than what I see in the forum.  I think a lot of them are just insane fans and not employed.  Hard to think that being so insulting and ignorant of things would be helpful to getting people to sign up.

I'm not certain this is very well thought out.  Especially the UI thing.  That's just pointlessly...well, cruel.  Or the helmet thing.  I mean...really?

Hmm, so they're using the whole "Look we're now F2P!" thing as a bait and switch type of thing. That actually makes sense after looking at it. Make the F2P option look so bad that people would rather sub.

Heh, too bad that won't work.

Nickle and dime to the extreme. Next up they'll demand $10 for hairstyles. . . aw crap I hope they don't see this.

You know what's fun about chaos? I do, but I won't tell.

The one skill bar has to be seriously one of the worst f2p restrictions Ive ever heard of, and supposedly its something like $25 to unlock it for your entire account. 

This isnt f2p, its an unlimted trial that does everything it can to force you to sub, just like AoC's f2p conversion. 

There'a a poll thread, where I voted AoC's f2p the worst, but I guess now we have a new winner to that position.

Most restrictions of TOR are ok, some of them a bit harsh, but this 1bar-only... this will set a new standard in the category of "stupid design ideas" :)

Seems they don't get the point of f2p conversion (just like Funcom with AoC), the whole point is to lure in new players, and take their money. You can't get money from someone who leave your game early. C'mon, it's not rocket science...

TOR already proved that more than 1.5million people, who already paid for the box, didn't found the game worthy for a subscription. EA really thinks that new players, when get annoyed with the 1 bar only, will subscribe rather than simply leave? Lol.

All this will surely work in that direction.

 

 

yea im fine with restrictions but some of this stuff is downright crazy.. no hide helmet option? really? only one skill bar? also little odd they upped the PVP gear prices for F2P when you are limited the 3 warzones a week anyway...

it is still on test realms .they will change it when it gets public

ok let me get this straight....

you take a game that was recently subscription only and at full tilt sub it was not able to satisfy players with content or features.

Now you parse that meager game out into subcomponents?

I don't see how that can be anything less than super shitty.

I was a strong supporter of the game and was looking forward to coming back for F2P, but the one killer for me is the one hot bar. To be honest, I'm not so sure now I will come back and I may just focus on GW2 for now. Hopefully they will listen to the community and adjust this.

There Is Always Hope!

This is a good speculation as to their intent.  If EA can MAKE this game fail, then they might be able to excuse themselves from their obligation with George Lucas .. an obligation which carries a high cost.

 

In essense, EA might be trying to get this game to tank, because in the long run, it's more profitable.  They still need to show that they "tried", which will be important in court hearings.

 No speculation. It clearly seems that way. All those restrictions have only one goal. Piss off the players  big time!

There is probably a clausule in the license contract with LA that if the game tanks, they can end the contract early.

The LA license for Star Wars is not cheap, you can bet on that. So as they are already losing money, it's better to tank the game hard and fast, so they can end the license agreement with LA as fast as possible to cut their losses.

ROFL

Right, what do you think someone that comes back and experience all these stuff be:

1) OMG is this for real, im outta here

2) YEAH, NOW i want to sub again!

And new player: i need another quickslot. 10$? yeah sure.

Guess they figured that if the game fails this way it will cost them less then bail out of contract with LA. Smart move lol

Guess noone will ever say a bad thing about Turbine again ha ha

Only a handful of fanbois left on official forums, 2,2m+ people stopped bothering with SWTOR long time ago :)

My Heart Will Go On lyrics
Songwriters: Horner, James; Jennings, Will;

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

 

Since I hate that song...

I honestly see this thread filling up with all the cheapskates and freeloaders complaining that they can't have everything for free and hating on EA for being so evil and greedy.

 

The one person I actually kind of agree with. Though I think some better options for folks who bought the game and played in the past......needs to be better than just cartel coins. I actually won't touch the game, F2P or sub, being a recent horrific customer service experience I had with them.............in-game help, which I was told to email support. Emailed support 3x over the next  2 weeks, hour wait on a phone call before giving up and cancelling/uninstalling. Funny actually being I just returned to the game and was looking forward to finishing some toons, found out for some reason in server merges they had moved 1 high level toon to a completely different server than where all my characters actually were.....no clue how that happened. In "cancelling feedback" I left the comment of not receiving an help with the issue.........its been 2 weeks and still no response to any of the emails or the cancel feedback.

Sorry about the babble, just fair warning of horrid customer service.

Those restrictions are comical. Who in the heck thought of those restrictions, lol. They definately won't be pulling in more players like that, lol.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....
