Have a look for you self and decide.


To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

How long will it take them to remove the hotbar restriction?  My level 50 is unplayable because of this.  

 

Normally I cave and resubscribe or purchase the unlock I want, but this felt like such a slap in the face that I loaded up Rift and bought that expansion instead lol.

Well based on the fact that 2 million people played and decided the game wasn't worth $15 a month, I'm guessing a lot.

to get suckers.

 

that must be why f2p games are full of retards. anyone above 20 iq would know better than to expect the game to be free to play.

Come on really? Every MMO loses subs after the 1st few months its normal. And to say TOR lost 2 million is a joke.

A joke on who, EA?

They sold 2.4 million boxes. Their subs are beneath 500k.

Just because recent MMOs have lost subs in their forst few months does not make it normal, especially not at the rate ToR lost subs.

But why go over old news? Enjoy the FTP relaunch.

What happens to existing accounts converted to f2P?

- I had over 2 millions credits, will I loose 1.8 millions with the F2P credit cap?

- I had 5 characters. Will I loose 3 with the F2P characters slot limit, or not be able to play 3 of them?

- I had a cargo hold fully expanded. Will I loose everything, or not able to access it?

- My 3 crew skills were at max. Will they loose their skills?

- I had lots of purple gear equipped. Will I suddenly be naked?

Free to play you will lose access to your credit until you either sub or pay to unlock the limit

I admit I didn't spent too much time on my main acc, so the others will correct / upate this, but as I know:

- credit not lost, 'only' not accessible above 350k

- can use all of them, for a while, until they find out how to limit the char slots. But cannot create new ones.

- pass on that (my guess is only not accesbile without loose anything, but hey, it's EA so I'm not sure :) )

- only 2 skills remains, but not loose it, if you buy the unlock you have it at max again

- purple remains, until you undress or try to modify it.

 

Edit: for sancher's post, nope, there's no limit upgrade in store. If you want to access your money, you HAVE to subscribe.

Free to play? You got to be kidding me. It's like a cinema advertising "watch this movie for free! You just have to wear these ear plugs and spend the duration of the movie sitting on the floor with your back to the screen. But it's free!"

 

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

Meh, I'll be honest game was crap before, its still going to be crap now, also those f2p restrictions.. what the hell is the point? might as well just give a 7 day free trial and then let them sub from there, because that is far from what i'd call f2p. Maybe not charge them for the game client after the trial, just a normal sub fee. Even though I always though swtor blew chunks, I was going to try it if the f2p wasn't too bad, but yeah, with that many restrictions I am not even going to waste my time. Lots of other, better f2p titles out there anyway.

 

Also I think more mmo's should do what eve online does, with the plex thing, you buy it for rl cash then its sellable in game as an item, you can play without spending cash out of your pocket, but someone will still have to pay the 15 bucks for you to subscribe, it just is not your 15 bucks and you can buy the plex in game off other player. Its honestly a pretty genious system.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!
