Agreed, and also very true.

They would have to retrofit the game to make the game completely F2P.

Currently, SW:TOR has only had "free weekend passes" for new players to try.

EVE online has a free 14 day trial, so that's 14 days F2P.

Rift is F2P up to lvl 20.

They're making SW:TOR F2P up to lvl 15.

You guys need to chill, and quit panicking at the drop of a hat. Most MMOs have either F2P for a certain amount of time, or F2P up to a certain lvl.

Your nerd-rage is pointless and useless.

I have NO issue with trials, in fact I encourage it since I personally usually wont even look at an MMO without doing a trial. While I doubt the rumors of SW:TOR going fully F2P are true, if they do announce it I'm done with it.

Then you have nothing to worry about.

They have announced they are going F2P up to lvl 15, nothing more.

The rest is rumors being spread by idiots.

bioware, here is a tip. get off your asses, stop being lazy, stop whining u have a job to do and content to provide us and do your jobs. if the community wasnt being dicked around for months with promises of this an that which never happend we wouldnt be ************.. get to work or i predict this game will go down fast.. f2p or not
What makes you think f2p will come to SWTOR (apart from one badly written "news"article)?

SWTOR will introduce a free trial allowing people to play to level 15. They will probably add a shop where you can buy cosmetic items and things like speeders and pets for cash. Neither of these things make the game F2P.

Just to be pedantic SWTOR also ran 7 day free trials (up to level 15) via a friend invite code. That is how I joined.

I am going to say this, I started this game when it first came out then quit for 2 and half months for all the problems and mistakes that were in game. Now that alot of them have been ironed out I came back to give it another chance since I feel SWTOR can easily beat any MMO out there since you have 2 huge and well known companies for quality games doing this game, but I swear if any DEVS are reading this, I also will quit this game and melt my install disks and never look at your game again if it goes F2P since you've shown the gamers out there that your not able and willing to fight the good fight and do what it takes to be #1. Lastly, I am going to mention one game that has been going on for over 11 years now and still has over 250k players still and that is FF11, FF 14 was the worst thing that came out of Square for years and tons of people stay with FF11 and that game had many problems, mistakes and hHUGE issues until they started making a good profit from it 6 years ago. If Square Enix can stick with a game all stated wouldnt last but has for over 10 years now....EA/BIO, learn from the past and please look at what made other MMOS successful in the past 14 years from the dawn of MMOS and make it happen on this game. If not, the 3 years of time and effort of getting great actors like David Hayter (voice of Solid Snake) or tons of the others that built themselves in this game go for waste and EA will show the world that it isnt a powerhouse but a weak entity that focuses on a quick buck, not on something that can outdo anything else out there!!!!!!!!!!!!

F2P reminds me of Eastern MMO's basically a hole lot of crap. F2P will open the door wide for Gold farmers and hackers. Think about it right now people are basically saying That TOR is good enough for them to spend the 15 dollars a month for fun. Heck 15 dollars now a days is not even a movie for one anymore. If Bio goes F2P it telling us the people that make or break this game that we are just another average MMO and we don't see us going no were but down with sales. So Far Bio you are a sub based MMO please don't change it.. You ether set the pace and lead or you follow every other mediocre MMO out there that has nothing but shoe strings to offer there players.
I'll tell you what the real prob is a over saturated marked flooded with crappy MMO's I know that is not your fault BIO I kind of blame on Blizzard for setting the bar way to low now.
Just know this like C-3PO stated "were doomed" if you go F2P. You might as well kiss most of your loyal gamers good bye since they will not stay this I promise.
Sadly it is all bout the mighty dollar. If you get some pencil pushing fresh out of collage accountant that says you can make more money going F2P DO NOT believe them.
Thank you for your time.
Hey OP add a pole to this thread ask who will stay or who will leave if TOR goes F2P.
I all ready know the answer I just thought maybe a visual will help BIO see how going F2P is a bad idea.

All BioWare really needs to do is give the new player 15 free levels.
The story is pretty addictive that they'd want to pay just to finish it.

P.S. The smart ones will just watch it on youtube.
