-etcetc

Leave it up to self-entitled gamers to feel that THEY should feel just as special as anyone else...

Like I said before - Im GLAD the fixed it. Really I am. Wont stop people from moaning about how Johnny has TWO shiny pencil toppers and Jimmy only got ONE.

Yeah, I know. Lol.

Edit: I personally was psyched about the Tauntaun, and I've been here since Launch and have a six month subscription.

I am amazed at how many people are so pised with what BioWare did. Legacy is a great idea and so what if i'm not lvl 50. I LOVE THIS GAME!! If all these people find it so bad to play then my question is...Why are you even playing, hell why do you even care? Go play WOW or go on xbox live and kill a couple dozen in MW3. There is no perfect game and no perfect system to play it on. I swear if i read another comment from another crybaby about what sucks in this game, i'm gonna find their email address and send ya a realy nasty letter (lol)
Seriously though, if all these people find something wrong then that means they are still playing and that gotta make BioWare happy

Bottom line is ... POT MEET KETTLE.
Obviously you didnt read the three posts that CLEARLY STATE.

I AM GLAD THAT OTHER PEOPLE GET A FREE MONTH.

Here. Ill even BIU it for you.

I AM GLAD THAT OTHER PEOPLE GET A FREE MONTH.


That better? Because I AM glad that other people got it. But LOOK at the sheer NUMBER of people that complained over it? Thats ridiculous. I would venture a guess that LESS THAN 20% of the people complaining have owned the game SINCE RELEASE AND purchased a multi-month subscription.

Which means, people will complain when they are not included, IF THEY FEEL LIKE THEY SHOULD BE FOR WHATEVER REASON.

Did you notice I havent complained - even *IF* I wasnt included in the free month? Because, guess what, Ive only been playing for ONE. So If I DIDNT get the free month - would I be here in the forums going "HEY THATS NOT FAIR I JUST BOUGHT YOUR GAME I DESERVE A FREE MONTH!"? Nope. Wouldnt care. Because I dont feel like Ive 'earned' it, even though I have one level 50 and a few alts.

Remember. Pencil toppers. Johnny gets two, Jimmy gets one. Is that fair? Depends. Will the majority of Jimmy's complain? Oh you can bet your sweet bottom dollar they will.

And one might say....

The Jimmy's...have been rustled.

And this right here is why SWTOR will become a GREAT game. Because you keep listening to your community. If you keep listening to your community SWTOR will be a better game then any other out there (yes I include WOW and GW2). Keep up the great work and thank you for giving us this time. I have my main up to level 45, but I enjoy the missions so much that often I end up doing mission that are low for me just to learn the story. What can I say I LOVE the lore. :-)

My forum post on the state of this game is based around the problems WITHIN it, and has NOTHING TO DO with someone getting a 'free month' and me not getting it, or someone getting 'better items' because they were able to do something I wasnt.

My problems with this game still stand, and I am wholeheartedly still critizing this game, having played MMOs for over 10 years now - I feel I am in an pretty good place to critique it, in some way, shape and/or form.
Well not to get in a huge forum debate, but people who have been here since pre launch and have an unbroken consistant subscription are also in a pretty good place to critique how they've been bypassed a free month of gameplay.

Yes you've played MMOs for 10 years and have every right to critique the gameplay,but you have only played swtor for 1 month and you have your free month of gameplay, I see why this whole thing wouldnt bother you.

Speaking of frustration...
Those who have been here 6 months supported the game from prelaunch until now are in a valid position to feel a bit cheated.They arent whiners , they have been loyal to the game and have supported the game since launch,but are penalized because of lifestyle or gameplay style.

I cancelled and this wouldnt even get me to consider resubing and I already meet the new standards!

Its a shame after all those posts and after people put themselves out there to be openly attacked and insulted with out moderation yesterday on this very forum

Bioware still didnt get the main issue

it was all for not

*shakes head and wanders off quite sad over state of humanity*
In regards to lessening F2P and Preferred restrictions
In GAMING, as in LIFE,
You get what you pay for
No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it

6 months with a lvl50 character?? Really? Even if you dont play but 8 hours a WEEK, youd still have a level 50 character in 6 months.

I made 50 in under 7 days /played time. Granted, I am a veteran in MMOs and know how to level, but lets face it - this game doesnt make it incredibly hard to level. I think my hardest levels were 48-50 - and thats because I had completed my main storyline quest and felt no 'urge' to get to lvl 50.

If you play MMOs CASUALLY (and for the sake of this discussion <8 hours a week), you had no NEED for the 30 day, as it was to offset the lack of end-game content once you reach 50. If youre still moseying through each class storyline, you havent really been AFFECTED by the lack of end game, because, for all intents and purposes, youve been exploring every ASPECT of the STORIES (which, effectively, cease at approx lvl48). If youre not missing out on anything due to the lack of content, why should you be given a free month to continue to experience content that has been out?

Like I said before, Im GLAD that more people got and get a chance at the free month. I am SUPER HAPPY EXCITED about it.

But I guarantee you that the majority of people complaining here...HAVENT been 6 month subscribed, and HAVENT owned the game since launch, and HAVENT paid multi-month subs. I would bet MY free month on it. Keep that in mind - Im not ragging on THOSE people, because, like you said, they have a right to be a bit peeved. Its the people who bought the game in Feb, bought a month or got a game card and now going "I WANT A FREE MONTH EVEN THOUGH I HAVENT MET THE VERY SMALL REQS FOR IT".

Also, I still feel the need to say it - 6 months and not a SINGLE lvl 50?? Comon.

i probably don't get to play enough to get this nice little perk, but you know what? at least they aren't like blizz and say, "oh well, suck it up, we can do what we want, like it or not, you will play."

and while yes, i understand that there are things people will always complain about with any mmo, how can you really complain about being any class of your favorite char from star wars? i mean, really? this game is beautiful. my first mmo was wow, and before that, rpgs only. online gameplay was for super nerds. i played wow cause ozzy said to do so, i loved wow when i played. but tor has really made me love mmo's now.

bioware has a great game here, and even if you don't qualify for the 30 day perk, like i won't, don't be a raging fool. if you love the game, love it, if you hate it, wow or rift or w/e is ====> way. feel free to leave the fun to those of us who love it cause we're fans first, players in the story second. good night folks.
