I think you said that wrong, let me rephrase your post for you:
Thank you for ignoring me Bioware. I'll still pay you my money.

Why would they bother fixing a problem that will fix itself? Take a break, play another game until this company learns to appreciate you as a customer.
If you have a GF that keeps kicking you in the tenders, you don't learn to walk with your legs crossed, you get another GF.

From what i wrote on the Master D forums...

very disappointing from BW.

F2P will not save this server.

F2P will only prolong its death.

We probably have to wait 2 more weeks for F2P. Then BW will evaluate this on our server over a period of 1-3 months minimum. Then they will sit on it for a little bit more. Then they will decide what to do, which is far too unpredictable.

In the mean time paid transfers will hopefully be implemented.

edit!!!! Please voice your concerns over their decision to wait for FTP in this thread and the following thread

Wow, I really can't understand this attitude. This is a good game and I like it, but it's buggy as hell, new content coming out is not that exciting. I can't see why you would want to pay to fix a problem caused by the company you are already paying money too. They fixed this problem for all the non APAC players months ago now and they are all getting much more for their money than we are.
Here is a list of things to do other than give more money to a company that is proving bad service to you, the paying customer:
  • Play another game, 100% new content, lots of good ones out there
  • Spend more time with friends and family
  • Exercise
  • Watch paint dry
  • Bang your head against a wall
  • Burn your money

Only reason I'm still here is because I found a good guild recently that help for Rep side 50 content. Imp side and non 50 play is still unacceptable due to lack of action from Bioware/EA
I'm not sure how much longer I'll continue to pay though. I definitely won't pay to fix this problem myself. That is adding insult to injury.

I understand I'm probably a minority, but I'm loving the game, satisfied by the quantity of content & having very few issues - most of which 1.5/F2P will likely fix for me.

I'm loving this game too, and I wish more people that did would post as well, because so far its just the noisy angry ones that should have probably quit, but have made it their missions to make this place and game depressing for all involved.

I'm happy with their response, and it was obvious that F2P was big factor, so now the waiting begins.

Congrats, you were in a guild large enough to sustain interest while the server around you dies.

Always any positive post is twisted into some form of negativity. Oh well.

While these forums have been toxic in a lot of ways, the negativity of this thread is only born of being let down.

I still love this game and will keep paying to enjoy it, but really what have the oceanic subscriber base got to look forward to this year? New vanity stuff, a new companion built on the reputation of a prior game, new dailies when so many people don't do the current ones as cash is plentiful, a new world boss (when we can't reliably down the last one because the player base is too thin), and more long queues for WZ and FPs and Ops.

All this while losing people to the normal game industry glut of christmas, and an influx of new players months away from being end game capable and reliable. In the mean time what is meant to be a MMO for causal games suffers from regular gamers logging in only casually. Not like the new free players will commit massive time to it, and casually players have lives so arn't on every night.

This is solved in the US and Europe by merged servers. Based off those words today we should not expect to see any action till February or March.

I get it, they cannot make a radical change right before an influx of players. But they can not hope to generate an influx to these servers just by releasing F2P. The asian market often finds less ping to the US servers anyway than Australia. The problems will still stand and poison the player base.

Do you think that there arn't guys already planning on day one of F2P to go to Korriban and Typhon and tell every new player to start on a more active server?
