Should have given 30 days to everyone subbed since release

As the thread title states. I have been subbed to SWTOR since pre-release and rarely complained about any of the decisions the devs had made but the free 30 days has been done wrong if you ask me.

Just because my playstyle (I have a lvl 48 and a bunch of alts) I don't get the 30 free days?

Bioware is offering 30 free days to anyone that has a lvl 50 no matter how long they've supported the game and they are also offering 6 days to the people that stopped subbing to the game, but nothing for those of us that either don't play as much or make a bunch of alts or both.

I realize that very few of you forum goers fall into this category but I think most of you will agree that in addition to those with level 50 characters, all accounts that have been subbed since release deserve the free 30 days as well.

It's ironic that this is the first thing Bioware has done that makes me want to cancel my sub and show my appreciation right back to Bioware.

I agree with you. My highest character completed his story at 47 and I saw no need to grind him for 3 more levels so I rerolled. I got my consular up to 30 something and then my server died. Rerolled a Bounty Hunter on another server got him to late 30's/early 40's quit, this server was dead when I came back. I Just rolled a Knight who is at level 28 on a third new server.

I clearly don't deserve a free month, because I haven't got to 50. I have only pre-ordered the game on the first day of pre-order, got the Collector's Edition, subbed 3 months and completed a fair amount of the games content.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

If they did it based on legacy level I suspect that might have been better. Sadly they didn't so I can understand the frustration.
I'm not sure my ship's big enough to fill that void... but let's give it a try!

Legacy level likely would not of helped me as I have had to hop servers twice because they died. The one I am currently on looks like its going to go that way too.

The funny part about all this is that if they had only phrased it better it wouldnt have been as much of an insult as it is now.

The way it is right now, anyone that havent leveled to 50 is not a valued customer...

Speaking as someone with a 50 and the free time i have to agree.

It's a very odd and arbitrary point to give out a free month for. If they're giving out a free month due to level 50's complaining about lack of endgame then they're going to end up giving out a LOT of free months over the life of this game.

EDIT: They talked about fostering a community when TOR was released. To me this seems like something that has the ability to divide that community.
Syff, Suder, Lieutenant Lonn, Captain Maureen.
Tassitan, Darth Vandicus, Agent Cormoran, Marin.
Blazerunner legacy, Lord Adraas server

The sees all

I've been playing since early access. I do not have a level 50. I have things in my life other than playing a video game.

I have two 50s and working on my third... so I got my 30 days. However, I feel sorry for everyone that has been playing since release and didn't get free time because they are (A) alt-aholics, (B) don't have a lot of time to play, or (C) just like to go slow and complete EVERYTHING. If I was in your shoes, I'd be super angry.

They should have taken the high road by rewarding all loyal customers who paid for the game and have paid their subscription fees continuously since launch.

Instead, they took the low road by trying to bait their most unhappy customers (those that are already at end-game content) into sticking around a little longer.
