Give us price ranges of items so we know if our cartel coins are worth anything useful.

Looks good. But as a paying subscriber, why are you giving the F2p people only 3 Warzones per week???????? This shouldn't even be on the table, either unlimited or a high number, I want these people to increase the number of Warzones running on the servers especially in off peek, 3 Warzones is nothing, it's just nothing, what if they get in a Warzone that has 1 minute left. End of story that number most rise or the whole of the Internet will lash out on swtor again.

You just have to increase that number. If you want to give the a taste.

Should the weekly warzone pass cost just about a dollar, I think it would be good enough.

16,426 cartel coins?

Will it be very expensive store?
Furthermore, I think Kashyyyk must be destroyed.

I am so getting a pink longspur sportster, my little sage'ess will look awesome on that.

Did I see sales in the cartel shop? Looked like the carbonized chamber had a 50 % discount in the picture. Sales would be sweet.
I'm a a tad worried about the saldo in the same pic though, the person had 16K points. Does that mean that things will cost several thousand?

Content packs look good. It's something I'm familiar with from other games.

What was originally said by swtor is that F2P till 50, subscribers new Planet and higher level cap. In this video subscribers are still 50. The margin between F2P and Subscribers grows shorter the longer this idea is in production, the rush of the production is my guess as to why the margin is being shortened. I think it is a bad misconception on Bioware's end to believe the F2P should take higher priority over the new planet and lvl cap for subscribers. The release should be the same as to not lose more customers so that the subscribing community doesn't feel that Bioware is putting them on back burner. Good way to lose more subscribers......
