The issue here is very simple... it comes down to desire, and respect.

How one desires to enjoy the game, is at the root of the issue here. BW, apparently still feels that only people who have played many characters to certain points, or one character to a certain point, are important. Yes, I feel comfortable using the word "important" because you certainly don't discount a group of people who are important... you only do that to people you don't care about.

It doesn't matter how many of you kids charged to 50, or think it's easy, or think it's easy to have Legacy 6. It may be "easy" but that doesn't mean it's necessarily desirable to everyone who plays the game. Some people brag about how fast they got to 50, or how fast they beat this game or that game... Good for them, and I sincerely hope they continue to enjoy all that SWTOR has to offer, but that's not my style. I'm a kick back and relax, have fun, and quest with my wife kinda person. Neither style is right, or wrong, but the simple fact is that BW has determined that the more relaxed players, who like to play up lots of characters to a certain point, in batches, are less important than those who rush to 50 and are somehow amazed that they're out of content.

I've played at least a few hours a week every week since early beta, through pre-release, and since launch. Often playing all day on Saturday and Sunday (all day to me being 6-7 hours). My highest character as of today is 45, below that, I have a handful of characters from 1 - 24 or so on various servers, as it took me a while to find one I was happy with.

I have, I think, Legacy level 3 right now on the server I've settled on. I honestly don't care about the money. I'm fortunate, in that $15 is not even a blip on the radar. The attitude from BW is the issue here, even now. I did and do thank them for expanding their offer, but I still feel it's not the 'right thing to do' so to speak.

So for those who continue to troll, attacking those of us who dare to play the game differently than you do, I would simply ask that you go back to stat crunching and trying to prove how amazing you are at a video game, while the adults maturely voice their opinions.

Sure... once you finish Chapter 1 with a character.

Once again, you make assumptions about people's play styles.

Why do you care anyway? This has no impact on you whatsoever.

Grisheub I totally agree with you, had I known that finishing chapter 1 would "unlock" my legacy and then (and only then ) do I start earning legacy xp maybe I would have rushed to finish chapter 1 with one of my alts. But like you I have a more relaxed playstyle and prefer to help others/guildies on flashpoints or PVP with them.

I also totally agree with you that it is not about the money but about the respect that BW is showing to the non-hardcore gamers who prefer to play a game than complete it. I am not the type of person to rage quit my subscription over this, but it does not sit well with me, the lack of respect not the money.

I wouldn't call this the most mature of opinions either, if I'm honest. The implication in your post is that all rushers were rewarded, while all relaxed players were denied. You don't seem to acknowledge that there are likely thousands, if not more, players who took things pretty easily - who didn't do anything that could be possibly be conceivably considered 'rushing' - who will still benefit by a free month from this promotion.

It's entirely likely that more people who play like you will benefit from this than you realise. Lots of people who were slightly less relaxed than you, slightly more consistent, but still relaxed. It's too easy and frankly quite mendacious to seperate the playerbase into the wrongfully-rewarded crazy kids and the hard-done-by mature slow-players.

There was just a cut-off point, as there always would have had to be no matter what they offered. It could have been anywhere, you were just on the wrong side of it this time.
There is no try.

So then, how would you set the bar for this 'loyalty' gift. should bioware interview everyone to see there real life commitments, where does it stop being a loyalty gift and here everyone have a free month ?

You arent getting the point. This is a game that people pay to play how THEY want to. Not how others think they should play it. What so hard to get about that. Mind-boggled!

The people who are upset have every right to voice their opinion so please all that are here saying YOU SHOULD be 50 or legacy 6 stop telling people how to play a game. Games are for fun not to be told how to play!!!!!!!
