I got a copy of BF3, also account in BF P4F with some money spent on game items, but I haven't received any e-mails from BW about any pets. Seems pretty unfair if it's for new accounts only.

Do people really like the little battle-droid pets? Why would any class carry one around with them? To scare away squirrels?

Now that the weekend is over, it would be great to get a yellow response on

A. How much we have to progress in those other games in order to be eligible for the pets and receive an e-mail, and

B. Can we - who are already playing SWTOR - get those pets, or are they only for new accounts?

Thanks in advance!

I have the answer to these two questions which I think is what most people are looking for (especially B)

A. In order to get the pet you will have to have received the email mentioning the pet promotion. Then you would need to create a new SWTOR account with that email address. That account will then, at a later date, receive the pet.

B. At this moment subscribers cannot get the items, no. This was intended as a cross-promotion to other EA free-2-play games. However, I can tell you that subscribers will have access to these items in the future. We are still working out both the when and the how. I will share any details as I get them.

Hope that answers your questions!

Good thing I find pets disturbing to begin with in this game. If they never let subs get those, I wouldn't care.

EA is lucky I'm using what little games they put out already. Not trying those other craps.

Thanks for the response! It's great to know that I do not need to put those pets on my "missing pets" list for now and can focus on getting the remaining Cartel Market pets.
If you could allow subscribers to get the pets at a later date like you mentioned, that would be terrific! Looking forward to it.

Aw.....I went to all the trouble of signing up for every game mentioned in this topic just so I could get the pets.

That said, I'm glad to hear we subscribers will be getting access to them in the future! Thanks for that.

It's a reskin so it doesn't phase me. Even if it wasn't a reskin it wouldn't phase be beyond, "Oh, that's cool." And that'd be it.

Playing WoW and Rift I saw plenty of pets that were exclusive to special promotions. The early Blizzcon's gave you a pet and/or costume and such that you can only get if you were lucky enough to get tickets. I saw an owl in Rift that some people got for attending some event in London. I'm not flying from So Cal to Londer just for a pet.

And I didn't hate them for it. Nor was I upset at the parent companies.

This is a promotion. Kudos to you, BW.
