Looked it up. You're right, I stand corrected. It was 3 years. Time flies.

There is a sub model and a F2P model, subscribers recieve preferential treatement and don't have to pay an extra penny

quit yer freakin whinin'


There's no way they'd have gone F2P with 1.3 million paying subs.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Well, looks like I'll be leaving this when GW2 comes out.

Subscription A service designed for players who want unrestricted access to all the game features via ongoing subscription or by redeeming a Game Time Card. In addition to gaining access to all game content as our current subscribers do now, subscribers will receive ongoing monthly grants of Cartel Coins, the new virtual currency that will be introduced later this fall. Cartel Coins can be used to purchase valuable in-game items including customizable gear and convenience features that will enhance the game play experience.
I am unsubscribing as soon as I log in tonight. Thanks BW for breaking my addiction! Any purchasable in game currency will be used and abused to generate more income. Pretty soon even subscription accounts will require this currency.

Best of luck to everyone who sticks with it.

I think you'll find they would.

Obviously they have.

Was hoping this wouldn't happen, oh well, at least my collectors edition will give me enough cartel coins to offset the ridiculousness of the whole deal

I always said I'd unsubscribe if the game went F2P.

Much as I do still enjoy playing, I am a man of my word. No point buying the cow if you can get the milk for free (actually a more suitable metaphor than usual. Huh).

Might still play on occasion with the girlfriend, but I'll just have to keep waiting for something else as my regular MMO.
I draw a comic. You should check it out.
