Okay genius lets rephrase it. I bought RotHC for 8 Euros. Now people get it either for free, or if they bought it get 1050cc. I get a speeder (not that I have tons of speeders) and a title. I rather take the 1050cc or the 8 euros.

Read it again. EVERYONE gets a speeder and a pet. F2P, returning subs, stalwart subs. EVERYONE.

Wow, whenever people talk about SWTOR, they complain. Yet we all still play it and love it. If you don't like playing it, stop subbing and pick up a new game. Why complain on the forums? If you still care then learn to love it. Are we all so spoiled that we're gonna complain about receiving something? I pre-ordered ROTHC, and I'm excited i get a title for free and I got to play the DLC since before it was open to everyone.
You're complaining because it's unfair? Well.... if you haven't already figured out that life isn't fair.... you're in for a treat.
All i see is complaints. Well guess what? This is happening.

BIOWARE ---> You rock! Thank you so much for this wonderful game you've created. Lots of us love it, but we're too spoiled to admit it. Please continue to make cool videos, expansions, and updates.
Your work is appreciated,
Sincerely,
The SWTOR Community.

its funny how this game would never be able to handle half of that. hey bioware, maybe you should focus more on your game and less on false advertising. it seems to work for some companies. maybe then me and the other 2 million people who left for lack of content would come back.

maybe.

but probably not. who am i kidding. its bioware. enjoy playing your virtual casino... i mean cartel market.

A new pet and speeder, yey

But... I'm still not seeing the subscriber benefit. I get RotHC free? Wow, had it since pre-order. I get... a lame title?

You want a real sub benefit, don't give us the Risen, give us a custom title that we can choose ourselves! How awesome would that be? (And inappropriate titles would just be reported the same as names or guild names).

So yeah, I'm still happy to sub for the sub vs F2P benefits, but I still resent this being marketed as any extra sub benefit.

As someone who was genuinely excited by this promotion, I find it a little disheartening to have jumped in and re-subbed only to later find the fine print about having an active account on October 20th. Guess what a month's sub falls just short of now? Lame.

I know it sounds a bit qq, but I considered the promotion worth a month of re-sub. If I'd seen that, I would've delayed that sub by 10 days so a single month of subscription would've counted.

Am I alone here? Just setting myself up for some 'lern2reed'? Fair enough. All the same, I would encourage the friendly folks at BioWare to consider making that clear to those of us who dun can't see dem werds so gewd.

The 1050 CC was not a bonus, it was a store credit refund for last 30 day purchasers..

This 500 just for reactivation makes ZERO sense. Well, yes, it's an INCENTIVE for old subs, but it's also a bit like saying "You shoulda gone f2p and came back now instead of subbing all the time." Weird. So it's very understandable for old subs to be invited back, but...

I mean, does it make any sense for the current subscribers? Hell no.

I subbed since launch for god's sake, and so far, only bonus I've seen is an extra 30 days they granted back in Feb 2012 or something. Aside from that, it's been "shaft the subber, stroke the freebie" all the way.

Would I unsub? No, coz I love this game and it's currently best all around MMO on the market, but sure as hell not happy to get whipped all the time.

Bioware's dear community managers, take notice of this fact:

We of those who supported and understood the 1050 CC refund and old buyers of RotHC not getting anything, ARE getting angry over this.

That should show your marketing department that this latest 500 bonus to resubbing players is a BAD BAD move.

Real bad. Like, totally, really bad.
