You saying that giving people something fun in the game wont make them money? They are going to make money by people playing the game and peolple will not play the game if they are no longer having fun. Even the fanboys(not using this as a negative) say they would no longer play if they were not having fun

Dont get me wrong, i personally would love to see space implemented but this is just a rumor.
A rumor started by Bioware, thats why people want to know about it

i read the article from December where they mentioned space but they also mentioned guild ships and Dec was not really a time of real promises.
Dec wasnt the time for real promise? Do you mean they gave false promises so that you would continue to play without any intention of doing the things they mentioned?

Here a misleading video about the jedi knight, "i dont remember knocking one person in the sarlacc pit and certainly never got this armor
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIhwEVuU7R8

Point is this is August, if you have not heard anything its because the are not doing it.
So no new info on HK-51 means they are not doing it
No new info on Makeb so they are not doing it
No new info on 1.4 so they are not doing it
The only thing they mention now is F2P


I mentioned chat bubbles, they said that would be implemented shortly, but here we are in reality...no chat bubbles.
Right. Thats why people are asking because they promise the world about everything but never do it.

Basically what your trying to say that its OK for Bioware to say they are working on something and have no new information and then after a certain amount of time passes without them saying anything that they dont have to do it, and in that time we cant ask about it? In other words they can say something they have no intentions to do just to shut everyone up? That to me is called Lying.
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

I pay now maybe 15 bucks a month. Great.

Now lets say server transfers are 20 dollars, well thats like 100 bucks the first day the store is open.

Lets say i have to buy HK, another 20 bucks, now throw in some legacy unlock like species options or something and all of a sudden I have paid for more than 2 subscriptions for a year.

I am guilty of buying those booster packs when SWG had those, i probally spent hundreds of dollars on those.

I did get to enjoy a cloud city house for like a month.

There are alot of people that will buy a few items a month and if we all spend more than 15 bucks then its like they doubled the sub numbers with out having to do much of anything.
I dont think there are as many people as foolish as you in this game, that will pay Bioware extra for something that they would have gotten for free(with their sub costs).

I hope you plan on spending thousands of dollars to make up for all the subs that quit because they have to pay for a new species or companion or content, oops.

Well being that people bought the CE edition for hundreds of dollars (even i knew not to do that) I would say, yes they are that foolish.

Now lets not get too far off topic because this is supposed to be about space, but i understand where you are coming from with more fun could mean more subs, but i dont think that is the thought process of this company. It may HAVE been, but its just not anymore.

Its about repetitive content, gear grinds and an ingame store. All designed to create that addiciton feel and seperate us from our money. I am sure you have seen that youtube video about "EAs view on microtransctions, really tells the whole story". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZR6-u8OIJTE

I would love to just think they are working to make things more fun, but i think that ship has sailed.

I still have fun playing, but I am not going to expect much more than fluff items and maybe some more legacy stuff.

If i am wrong, Awesome. If I am right, I wont be dissapointed.

An increase from what ? What was their revenue prior to freemium ? What was their revenue at launch ? Currently ( and this is the funny part IMO ) If TOR gets 1 million free players, they will need to spend 15.00/ month to equal the revenue TOR had at launch. So we're right back to where we started as apparently people did not want to spend 15.00 a month to play to begin with, so now you'll need 2 or 3 million paying 7.50 or 3.25/ month, all plausable, sure, but realistic ? . Personally i'm Ok with the F2P or freemium or whatever you wanna call it model , it HONESTLY makes perfect sense, Let the people who wanna play MMORPG endgame pay a sub and allow the free people to play it as a SPRPG, cause for the majority of the game, thats what it is, a single player online game.

So you can't even confirm that it's still on the table. I guess it's dead, then.

That's what I read as well. NO NEW INFORMATION OR UPDATES FOR SPACE.

They know it's a request and know they have people interested in it though, but they have no update planned and no news on if they will.

There was another thread up here where someone cited a dev talking about a "revolutionary" and "totally new" space project. It sounds like anything that big, if it wasn't cancelled, wouldn't come out until a full expansion. Until then we will only have re-booted Rebel Assault missions that no one 50+ plays more than once anyway.
