ok so ill make this short and sweet... im mad, very very mad. if f2p comes to tor i will hands down leave an go back to playing WoW. I have been a dedicated player/subscriber since before launch, and wht will the players get in return for sinking all of our money into this game... not a thing. i promise the devs that i will take myself an my whole guild back to WoW and pay for their 100+ dollars in software just to play a paid for game.
bioware, here is a tip. get off your asses, stop being lazy, stop whining u have a job to do and content to provide us and do your jobs. if the community wasnt being dicked around for months with promises of this an that which never happend we wouldnt be ************.. get to work or i predict this game will go down fast.. f2p or not

If they do want to make it free to play we can petition that they make a seperate server for f2p players (morons) just so swtor now won't change. that's what i would suggest

What exactly is your gripe with F2P?
How is it in any way an insult to those of us that have been playing the game since launch?
How does it diminish your gaming experience?

F2P isn't the end of the game, it simply signifies that BW/EA thinks they can get a higher revenue stream through an alternate means, most likely micro transactions and pay to unlock future content. If new content is released every 3 months, you actually end up paying less in the long run. Instead of paying $45 over that 3 months, you pay $10-20 to get the new content patch.

As long as BW can maintain a content release schedule to keep players interested, it could mean more content arriving at quicker pace.

I agree completely if it goes f2p I will not play it. I wont go back to wow EVER again but I may return to EVE or RIFT or find something else.

Have you looked at the difference between f2p and p2p games? I mean REALLY looked. f2p translates to either pay to win, or we will nickel and dime the **** out of you to get what you would already have on a p2p, or the quality of the game deteriorates exponentially. F2P players already have numerous games, most of the players here avoid those games for a reason and will leave if it goes to that model. I can assure you they will NO maintain anything close to the numbers they have now if the change to f2p

Chill, FTP until lvl 15 is Industry Standard nowadays and good for Business, brings in alot of new Hopeful Players and gives us Community Figures a chance to make them stay, Full FTP isnt in their thought right now, EA wouldnt allow it, And it wouldnt fit well with SWTOR
Chose a Marauder, Not because they are OP, i chose it because its the closest thing to Revan as you can get, Revanites Unite!
