However when the company behind it treats you like a subpar customer, it hurts, and that's not easily forgotten. Fixing the promotion is a temporary band-aid, you're gonna have to do a lot more to win back your customers' trust and respect in the long run.
This. This so much.

2-3 hours per night for four months is plenty of time to reach level 50.

Are you trying to say that anyone without a level 50 doesn't have a 'real life'?

Because the community needs people to be playing the game in oder to build it... Active community bring more community.

The original bonus was offered only to players who had a character at level 50. As many of those people defending the original criteria have pointed out, it only takes a week or two to get to 50, providing you focus on nothing but levelling that character. Do you really want to argue that somebody going from 0-50 in two weeks is contributing to an "active community"?

If I sit on a sub, sure I'm spending money but I'm not contributing any building to the community.

I am not sitting on a sub. I play almost every day. I have many, many alts. I offer help when people ask questions in chat. I create and join groups for flashpoints. I craft, collect, buy, and sell. I queue for warzones.

Frankly, I think I contribute a great deal.


Players want to see MMO's full of life and people out playing. This legacy promo fix was the right thing to do.

See the above. How many 50s do you see in your travels? I suppose, if you're already 50, then you're running around a level-appropriate zone, or you're on the fleet, or you're running with other players your own level doing whatever it is you do when you're 50.

The point is that new players don't see 50s all that much. Who they see is experienced players levelling alts and answering their questions.

And the "fix" is as misguided as the original offer. It still sends the wrong message.

I feel sorry for your fellow employees that are going to have to put up with you running to HR every other day because you feel slighted.

Bioware has handled this in the best possible way that they could have. I have yet to see ANY.. ANY.. other MMO hand out a FREE MONTH after Launch and not attached to the initial purchase of their product.

You want to leave, fine. Me personally I'm staying. Because they have proven to me that they are in it for the long haul. They might have made some mistakes, it is true. But I guess I'm not the kind of guy to hang someone for a first offense.
And that's great for you! I'm not asking for anyone to share my feelings.

What exactly, are you talking about anyway? Where did I say this was the worse thing that ever happened in the history of MMO's? Thin skin........because I want Bioware to learn their lesson and not have a disaster like this happen again? Um, ok....

Handled this the best possible way? How do you know this, do you work there? Has Bioware apologized? Has Bioware reassured us that something like this wouldn't happen again? Has Bioware redefined their meaning of "loyal"?

First offense? I see you weren't around at launch for their "no grace period" insanity.

errr.. i just got this game last month and am playing with the free 30 days. i haven't paid for any 1 month of game time yet. so does that means that i am unable to get the free 30 days even if i managed to have a lv 50 char?

Really? Come on. If you owned a big arsed company like this and had your own mmo out and you were about to lose subs, you think you wouldn't do anything to attempt to keep from failing? That is unrealistic. They know what happened to SWG, I don't think they want that to happen here.
Good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun....

for those of you insisting that BW give you a personal written apology please drop the ego. yes giving the entitlement in the first place was a mistake, if BW hasn't realized that come next month they will.

Again yes they made a mistake, BUT they have dedicated to a coarse of action that will force them to pay for it. if you cant accept that as at least partial atonement then the fact of the matter is your selfish.
