Let me clue you in on something about the real world.

I, and many working professionals like myself, spend MOST of our days actually making presentations and creating documents (aka meaningless work) because humans have to communicate with other people. This is how we, as professionals, sell our story and communicate benefits to those around us. People have been dressing things up, creating proposals, making presentations for a very long time.

Get used to it or go away.

A text announcement would have sufficed.

You can also be a green human, a blue human, a human with tattoos and... a blood elf.

Subscribing is the key

That's nice and all, but no clue of how much some things will cost?
Can you give us a vague idea?
I don't know if anyone has been fooled by letting us know how many cartel coins we have.
That means nothing unless we know what it can buy.
Some vague idea would be great.

Hey guys! Thanks for the new free to play video #1. I think it's a great start to let folks know about what going to be happening when the change occurs. Lookin good so far. Thanks for keeping us informed!!

Are you guys going to be doing a video on what's going to be available in the cartel coin store to buy?
An example of things would be cool. Like being able to buy character races other than the beginning three or what type of gear will available or mounts. Things of that nature would be fantastic!!
Anyway thanks again guys and keep up the good work!!

Will this be the case in free-to-play?
You are basically asking if Bioware will let you give them more money.
I'm quite confident the answer to that will be an astounding YES
I'm sure there will be lots of vanity stuff in the store only available there. If you feel the need to have them all and that in turn puts you off the game I can't say that's the games problem.

Obviously this could be wrong, and just as obviously this could well change before launch, but a three figure price for a single item certainly sounds about what I'd expect.
At an artistic standpoint the $ sign should be about equal in size to every numeral. So all you'd have to do is see how many cartel "dollar" signs can fit into the slot. For example the Longspur looks like it has room for 3 digits, but if you look directly left it appears to have room for 4 digits.

Then again I could be just as wrong

F2P are given choice of 3 races...I'm at the moment a subscriber, and I have a Sith Race Inquisitor. So if I drop my subscription (I couldn't give a bantha fart about warzones) I lose the ability to play my legacy sith race??
