I'm fairly new to online gaming so I'm not sure about the positive or negative effects this will have on the game, but more people on the servers is never a bad thing. What I am interested to know is more specifics on what differences there will be between F2P and sub players, and whether or not those differences are going to be worth 15 dollars a month.

My feedback is you just killed the game and the entire franchise. Not to mention whatever was left of EA's Integrity. Way to go killed Dragon Age, mass Effect and KOTOR all in one year. You truly are the king of kings when it comes to money grabs.

The only benefit F2P serves is server overcrowding which is already happening and me not having to pay 15$ a month anymore...

Now they have a reason to re-open some old servers.
I just hope they let me transfer BACK to my origin server when this happens.

I have no problem with Free 2 play or Freemium.

However, I fail to see how this model (only charging for people who want to use the GTN or access Operations) is going to make any money.

As someone who intends to continue to pay the subscription as long as I'm actively playing, I'd like to have seen the Free to Play limit for story content stop after Act 2. Make people who want to play to the end of their class story pay to access that part.
