"But it was so artistically done..." - Grand Admiral Thrawn's final words

Additional change announced today for players who would like to subscribe:

All former subscribers who reactivate their subscription by the new date of December 20, 2012 at 11:59pm CST will be granted Complimentary Cartel Coins for their prior paid months up to November 15, 2012. For more information on all of the rewards you could potentially receive, visit www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/FREE.

So you can get back F2P and if you decide that you like a game and want to sub, you will get your CC as long as you sub before 12/20/12

 

The ironic thing though is you do not really need the CC if you sub, but if you want to play the game via F2P, you will need the CC.

Without having the CC that you should get, will limit the game, and make the game not so good, making it not worthwhile to sub. If people had some CC, then would get them further into the game, and may want to buy some more CC for about $5 per month or something.

This deal just voids the point of F2P. They even have 250 CC for being subbed when it goes F2P, as a further incentive of being subbed now. All those that stay subbed when F2P hits will get about 850 CC more than those not being subbed. So no need for them to get people to sub to get any CC.

Wrong. Look at this this way. For us who subscribe the game, price of subscription is going considerably down because of 500+ CC we are getting back. From what I see on forums that is one of the major reasons that players will stay subbed instead of going F2P. When F2P will go life price of my sub is going to go down below $8 - that's almost negligeble. And I am going to buy stuff from Market, pets, vehicles, armor, boxes... so it is actually pretty good insentive to stay subbed imo.

Edit. Additionally I am one of these weird people who don't believe everybody should be getting everything for free.

Edit 2. This F2P model is targeting imo people who want to do a story and ocassionally PvP and FPs, for first time players so they can enjoy the story from 1-50 with assumption that they will sub if they like it, and for these players whose time is not allowing them to log in regularly and prefer to pay for weekly access to warzones etc if they choose to. It is definitely not model for people who want to play all content for free. That's not going to happen.

they should try to get new players IN, not introduce a F2P system where 90% will uninstall after the first month. :)

If this 90% of players would never want to spend any money in cash shop, why would I want them in game anyway.

I would prefer to work with the reminding 10% :)

everyone can say what they want..f2p will bring more player to the game " it needs " 

it should bring some money to they game also " it needs it "

overall i think it needs to drop a huge xpan pac / add on / something it needs this more than anything imho..could careless if they did / didnt have cut scenes and epic boreing voice overs ...its needing more filler BADLY

Sounds like Bioware is trying to have an NGE of it's own. Some of the store items remind me of the TCG loot cards. At least you don't have to "gamble" to get these. I got a mail from BW that said I have some coins waiting for me. But it's pretty lousy of them to make me resubscribe just to get them. Money is not the issue, of course. It's just a lousy decision, in my opinion.

Good luck to those who play. The TCG did teach me that there's a demographic of players who will fork over tons of cash to have digital shinies. If that turns a tidy profit for BW, maybe you'll get returns in the form of the content you're craving.

A quick observation from the SWTOR forums in regard to the FTP xp nerf:

The same group of people who were saying that people "rushed" and capped to level 50 "too" quickly in January (and often called the people who capped easily "no lifes" and "basement dwellers") are now saying that the XP nerf is no big deal because levelling is too quick in SWTOR anyways.

Nope.  Nice try to divert focus from the XP nerf though.

2 questions:

 

1) Where can I see the prices for everthing that they plan on putting in the store?

2) How much will it cost to permanently unlock the maximum character slots?

 

I've never wanted SWTOR to fail.  Their money grabbing F2P model makes me hope they indeed do continue to fail.  I bought the game for full price on release and get basically nothing in return for that.

German gaming site already taken it down , after couple other websites caught onto it also , but the amusing part will be if true they picked the F2P date start to be the same as NGE start (bad coincidence I'd say).

Ironic, isn't it?

Though very predictable.
