Giving 30 days free and a free pet only to accounts with level 50 characters is wrong in so many ways it isn't even funny. Personally, I have 3 accounts I pay for... 1 for myself and 1 for each of my kids. All 3 are on the 6-month subscription plan. Only my account has a level 50 character, so it is the only one that gets 30 days free? Puhleeze! If they're going to reward anyone it should be people who have had active accounts since day 1!

This marketing blitz should have been something like this:
- 15 days free play time to all inactive accounts. The objective for EA with this is to get inactive players back to the game, in hopes they will resubscribe. You also give them +15 free days if they re-activate within the 15 day free time period for at least a monthly recurring subscription.

- 30 days free for all players with active accounts . The EA objective is to make sure that those that have maintained active accounts are always rewarded at least as much as inactive players are.

- Free tauntaun pet to all accounts active since launch day. The EA objective is to reward those that have been paying monthly since the beginning. *THESE* are your most valued players, trust me... NOT the people who play for a month or two, hit level 50 during that time, then leave the game.

- Setup a reward system for those that subscribe to 3 and 6 month plans... again, THEY are EA's most valued customers. Rewards should be things like a GTN box on your ship at no cost as long as you have a 6 month subscription. End your subscription and the free GTN goes away. Perhaps 3 and 6 month subscriptions get a free repair droid on their ship. 1, 3, and 6 month subscriptions get a free training dummy. Better yet, create some new things that are exclusive to long-term subscribers.

Anyways, just my two bits on this PR fiasco,
Tigsen

Everyone who currently has an active account is getting the pet...

You're use of the word "valid" is worse than the repetitive use of "entitled" here.
A little rude but I will respond to you.

The game has been out for months, I leveled my first level 50 inside of a week whilst also playing other games, working and spending time with my girlfriend. (Admittedly not that much time on other games initially )

Now If you had taken a month to get to 50 that would be fine. My only point was that if you aren't even getting to the bulk of the game (if you have ever played MMO's you will know that end-game is what decides if people keep playing or quit) then why should they reward you.

The fact that you have a sub is not in question. Think of it this way IRL it is very hard to get a credit card if you have not got a credit history. Similarly they will not reward you for loyalty until they know that you have seen all they offer and said "yes I will continue to pay you for this game"

The use of the word "valid" was an opinion and as such is subjective. You can disagree with me but that does not change my opinions validity.

If you don't feel entitled why are you still complaining about this?
