I'm curious if this means it's going to be solely f2p or a "freemium" model. Very little info on this is annoying.

edit: nevermind looks like something showed. up.

The economy's tough - people like having more than one option to pay for a game.

As it stands now, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Sounds great, hope it works out for everyone.

Current and former players will also find additional benefits as part of this program. BioWare will be increasing the frequency of game content updates, with the first of many new releases coming in August.

A hybrid. So, as long as they take care of their subs, no problem here. And if that means more content for me as a sub without doing anything other than play? Hell yea. I'm on board.

This could be implemented really well, or really poorly. If I can get everything in their "Cartel Coin" shop with the cost of my subscription, this is fine. I hope it can pull more folks into the game that are turned off by subscriptions.
