I quite enjoy bacon.

Bacon in all of it's greasy yet crispy deliciousness is not simply amazing, it is complex amazing.

Oh yes...complex amazing.

Because you can't figure out just how it is amazing, why it is amazing, and what makes it amazing.

This has nothing to do with SWTOR going F2P, but the subject of bacon will brighten your day.

May the pork be with you.

However, Vogel and every other idiot that made design decisions about this polished turd of an MMO deserve to be fired. I hope every last one of one of them gets fired and never works in the industry again (as if). Anyone with half a brain cell could have told you that copying WoW, putting Star Wars skins over it, and adding 100 million dollars of voice acting to it, was going to eat #$@% and then die. But no, every MMO design team is 100% ego, thinks they are the messiah, THEY are different, better, THEY will be the WoW-killer. And the cycle of idiocy continues. Sad part is, all these tools will get work designing another multi-million dollar failgame in spite of this epic failure.

I just hope that all character perks and legacy perks will become available for purchase both by credit and Cratell Coins, same thing with withdrawing armorings, mods and enhantements, would save me loads of credits and farming credits, which is a really boring necesity

i cant really see this being a problem, lots of games are taking this option now & if it means more people online i cant see the downside

Something about all of this does not make sense to me. Coming from a server that had to transfer to another to build population for ua to play. Now we are going to make it free to play and populate the servers that are already heavy to full. I am all for improving and pushing forward. When does that take place? I have been here from the start and could not play due the amount of maintenence and system restarts. So are they prepared for the FTP to take place or will it crash the server system?! I think it would be better to focus on the glitches in game first before bringing more into. I wonder even with all the fans and followers can the games foundation stay strong and hold for the duration. In the end something doesn't make sense to me! Hope this is heard!

Was thinking the same thing. We'll probably drop our subscription too, once it's free to play.

Might I suggest to lower the free play level to 25 or 30? And they can't join guilds, have more than $XX credits and can't sell on the galactic market. This may inspire them to subscibe sooner to enjoy the benefits of nice speeders, etc. Just a thought.

also im kind of exited about the cartel coins

on the other hand though, I wouldn't hate it if they reduced the sub.....
