2. The subscription requirement was driving away huge numbers of people who do not want to commit to paying monthly.
FYI: roughly 10 million people pay $15 a month to play World of Warcraft. Why? Because they decided that WoW was
$15 a month. SWTOR lost over a million subscribers not because they couldn't afford $15/month, but because they'd decided that SWTOR
wasn't worth $15/month.
I'm not saying that I agree with their decision, I am still subscribed after all, I just want to make sure you understand that your PR spin is fooling no one. Please stop trying to insult your customers' collective intelligence and just drop this line. You've decided to go F2P. Fine. Stop trying to sell it and just make it happen.
P.S. It's been six weeks since the last update. So... when's the next one again?
