No point to take part in the over emphasis or customizing a look if it costs players too much.
No way should they lower the cost. Lowering the cost of items and Legacy bonuses is the worst thing they could do. If they keep lowering the cost of everything the credits would be pointless, the game is easy enough with all the quest objectives being on your map. There is no thinking involved in most of the quests except for should I choose option 1,2, or 3 in the conversations. Also I think lower exp. for F2P members is a bonus not a draw back. Leveling is way too easy in this game, so you are always updating your armour.
PLUS WHY DID YOU HAVE TO CUSTOMISE THE VIBROKNIVES AND GENERATORS? nOW ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT LEARNT ALL THE PURPLE SCHEMATICS SO THEY COULD SELL THEM ARE IN A BIND AS EVERY1 WILL JUST GET THE ESSELLES AND BLACK TALON CUSTOMS.

PLEASE BIOWARE, DON'T MAKE THIS GAME ANY EASIER JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE ASK FOR IT. IF IT IS TOO EASY PEOPLE GET BORED FAST. THE GAME IS FALLING INTO A REPETITIVE CYCLE.

what happens to people who have characters at or below lvl 50 and let their subscriptions lapse. do they lose them? can they still play the lower level characters with limited access?

I believe they already mentioned a lower mod extraction cost for subscribers come 1.5 (F2P players will still pay full mod extraction price).

Lol you're acting like my comment would bring the end of the world. People have greatly disliked the extration costs for many months.

All i can say is... get ready for tons of cheaters as with every EA game they say they ban cheaters but don't... Way to kill another great game.
As new "Exciting" Content is inexistent.

I find myself taking longer breaks from this game every time.

I've played several of EA's titles even some they swore would never go F2P and still did... I've seen what a EA F2P is. No update or at the least very small ones. No Banning especially the ones buying virtual credits and No customer support. So your asking why the negativity well let's just say they don't have a very good track record!

Were those games produced by Lucas Arts, Bioware and EA collaboration?

I say not, therefore this is the first MMO F2P model of that collaboration so before we all get negative and rant about what ifs lets see what IS on the 15th of November 2012

I have read the threads in here (Most of them) and i wonder two thing. Is there 2 ways of playing SWTOR, continue as subscriber and get more of the game and a lesser version f2p? What will the deifferanse be and is it even worth continuing to subscribe?

Call me dumb but i canīt get that out of all the text.

Subscriber = play have you have been since launch and get a max of 500 Cartel Coins per month free with subscription.

F2P = play the game from level 1 - 50 without a subscription, but you will not be able to do side quests you will be limited with PVP and flashpoints i think 2 rounds of each per week. if you want more you have to use cartel coins that cost real cash.

If you are a subscriber and able to afford $0.50 per day then you would be wise to continue.
