however, if this is on a per toon basis, price needs to be dropped.
I would assume it applies to the account... if it is per toon... that's just ridiculous.

Yeah, but an "account" is 2 characters for F2P

Hells yeah, plus extra cartel coins for FREE. They literally give you $5 in cartel coins EVERY MONTH.

So it's like $10 a month to really subscribe. If you put in a 6-monther, it's now $7 a month, and you're given $30 worth of cartel coins.

That's cheaper than paying $9 every month for just PvP on your two characters who can't do anything else post class-missions.

Woah. And people be telling me how they just don't want to spend the money for a subscription just to PvP like it's not even worth it.

I do realise the more coins you buy the better the deal but I'm not dropping a big wad of cash all at once on a game I've already paid for in the past.

As it stands I'm out, I'll see if the prices change in a few months time.
Dear Business,

Previously I was paying for a service, and for (Insert reason here) I decided to stop using your service.

I would now like to start using your service again at the same capacity I did when using your service prior at half the price as everyone else, since you aren't allowing me to do so, I will continue NOT using said service. I will check back in a couple months in case my idea on what you should charge ME is met.

Signed,
Guy who doesn't understand nor will ever run a business

The point I was making was I'm not going to sub. There is way too much (ever increasing) competition out there for me to sub to this game again. I would be a casual SWTOR player if the price's were better.

I'm one example of an ex-player who will not be returning to the game, and as a few of you have said its cheaper with big purchases of subs/coins but in my OP I said this is exactly what I wont be doing...

Now, coming to the SWTOR forums and telling people what I think about this is bound to attract many naturally biased subscribers (which is fine) telling me to subscribe but my opinion still stands and if you want TOR to survive with a healthy player base I hope somebody out there will listen.

We'll see how it works out. A monthly PvP or PvE pass might be cool. Encouraging subscriptions is a great goal but hitting lots of price points is wise.

Just sayin' in general. Don't flame pls.

I'm happy with my subscription. Need to move it to the six month plan if I have not already. Best price point.

It's $8 a month to just pvp using CCs, and even less if you choose to opt out for a week due to RL issues. It's not the $5 you wanted, but seriously it's a difference of $3 dollars.
