If you like this game, want to see it continue and want to continue playing it you should be happy about both of these points. Because the People throwing money at EA are paying for your 2.0 patch and expansion comming out... How soon we forget that this game was in the toilet just a year ago, and hemorrhaging funds. Developers quitting, getting fired left and right, and it looked like it wouldn't last a year. SWTOR wasn't meant to go free to play, it needed to because the subs could not and still cannot sustain it. That cash shop that everyone hates so much is what is paying for the Gree event you enjoyed and all the content that came with that content patch, and the upcoming patches as well.
Every time I see this response I always think of this picture in my head. Subscription money goes in, pays for everything development wise. CM money goes in and is pocketed.
That may very well be what they do and you have no basis to say that it doesn't nor do you have the basis to assume what you said above.
