This will end perfectly!! People will get exactly what they ask for... The F2P players will be the one that sit in the queue lines.. No access to Operations, extremely limited access to the GTN.. All this works for me!!

It is nice to see that the old saying is still true.. 'You get what you pay for..' Well you pay for nothing here and you are pretty much getting nothing.. I like it!!

Looks good!
Where did you hear anything about more content?

The new content is going to be accessable to the F2P players so they spend more money. The sub players are going to get screwed even more by getting less and less content that isnt aavailable to the F2P players.

In other words the way Bioware is going to make money out of this is by using cash shops or whatever you call them. Then all the money they put into the game will go into improving those features.

Bioware got your 60 bucks and your 15 bucks for 7-9 months so now they need to work on getting money from others. Hey if you dont like it then you can use the F2P model right and end up spending even more money.
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

I guess halos and the ewok love fest are not as far away as we thought originally.

Now the game will no longer be the player with the best skill, but the biggest wallet. Great.

The economy's tough - people like having more than one option to pay for a game.

As it stands now, I don't see anything wrong with it.
Are they actually providing that option because I would just assume pay the $15 a month for unlimited acess assuming there's a point to keeping the Sub when F2P goes into effect.

EA & BW gods, PLEASE DON"T MAKE A REAL MONEY GTN. IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING.

THIS, and I still enjoy APB Reloaded.

F2P is the future, get used to it. Microtransactions will always beat subs because of human impulse.

TOR requires about as much skill as breathing does.

I wonder if we can get Bethesda to come out with a good Star Wars game?
