Wow, you really can't see it? I'm amazed actually. lolololol

I really don't care either way. If I was wrong I would be perfectly fine with it. I have no "hatred"of SWTOR. I have no dark desires to see it's demise. It's just really sad when people go off the rails from not exercising proper reading comprehension.

specifically the second line -
In a broad strokes definition, fraud is a deliberate misrepresentation which causes another person to suffer damages, usually monetary losses. Most people consider the act of lying to be fraudulent, but in a legal sense lying is only one small element of actual fraud. A salesman may lie about his name, eye color, place of birth and family, but as long as he remains truthful about the product he sells, he will not be found guilty of fraud. There must be a deliberate misrepresentation of the product's condition and actual monetary damages must occur.

Tor was launched on the 20th december.

The 30 days free month thus ended....10 days ago.

Unless EA have way, way, way better accountants than anyone else, I strongly doubt that this report, for logical reasons, was made only 10 days ago.

Saying that listed companies arrange their numbers as they see fit Is wrong in so many ways...

You are really dense.

The quotes are from the CALL today, not just the the quarterly report.

It is clear you have never invested or participated in any of these calls before.

What that means to me is retention is probably closer to 70% from launch vs. the 85% it appears to be. Regardless even if 70% that's pretty darn high.

What is harmful is stating that TOR sold 2 millions copies and got 1.7 million accounts activated ?

I bought after the first 30 days. So i'm in the category who's paid plans has not kick in. But there's way more paid subscribers than people who bought the game later like myself.
