So now you're playing martyr, suffering through 'crap' so those following in your wake can have a less buggy experience?

I hope they are doing this purely for the reason they can gather all the whiners here and throw a giant ban hammer at them.

In regards to lessening F2P and Preferred restrictions
In GAMING, as in LIFE,
You get what you pay for
No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it

Might as well-they're not valued customers anyway, right?

Well im not quitting...

but im definately taking a 30 day hiatus when my 6 month subscription is up.

hey, if im not "valued" enough to get those 30 free days just because i didnt devote my time to leveling one character to 50, then i guess Bioware wont get my money for a month.

sure its not much, but its about principles.

Don't get me wrong folks, this isn't gonna make me quit, but I do think BW need to exercise a bit more fairness here, I mean, from what I've seen it's relatively easy to hit 50 in less than a month- So someone who pays 1 month, fee levels up quick gets a free month, while someone who's paid for 4 months, taken their time and is enjoying the game content gets nothing... Duh!
They should have worded it differently. Saying something like,

As a thanks for being level 50, here's 30 days.

In order to receive your thirty (30) days of game time, you must meet the following requirements by April 12th, 2012
  • You must be a power leveler.
  • you must not be loyal.
  • you must not be a slow leveler.
  • you must not create other alts.
  • you must not dilly dally
  • you must not play the game just get a lvl 50 toon and leave

Awesome. An hour break and this is still going, and arguments have gone full circle. It's like page 50 again.

In terms of bad warzones and class problems, this problem impacts everyone, regardless to level.

Level 10 onwards are in the same warzones as the level 40+, they've been dealing with the same bugs, class imbalances, dropped warzones and bugs that log them out for trying to join warzones the same as the level 50s.

Yes, the level 50s suffer more in terms of lack of further progression but the option is always there for them to make new characters and play through new content in the shape of class story lines..... nothing is forcing anyone to log into their level 50s and stand around fleet doing sod all and then in some peoples case looking at this thread apparently being more entitled to compensation for their entirely optional choices of doing sod all instead of doing something than any other player not at their level.

It's not like the level 1-50 path is smooth sailing either, there have been oddles of mission glitches that stop completion of missions and forcing people to reset and start the mission again, inability to find people to play with to do the extra available content apparently on offer that makes them less entitled then those that make the conscious choice to only stick to their level 50s... the lack of level brackets means those below level 50 have to put up with greater resourced characters in warzones who have countless more stuns, disrupts, DoTs and snares if they want to do any PvP at all.... the amount we have all had to put up with and accept is quite a long list, and it's something we all share.

To be fair every one has been pretty much equal in terms of the amount of crap we've had to put up with since the game hit retail.... the only difference is the endgame segment of the community is the one more blatantly obvious in terms of dealing with the crap because the game released with very little in that range so its just more off putting... but at the end of the day anyone who looked into the game before rushing to 50 would have known the score from the get go in the first place.

It's less that level 50s are 2nd rate citizens in terms of quality of their game I'd say, and more a question of people expecting to much to be added for the endgame content bracket in too short a time given the known poor state on release and when something got delayed Bioware went into panic mode and just went along with that expectation and threw the nearest thing they could find packaged in a nice ego stroke letter.
