From what I am reading they appear to be using a F2P model like LOTRO which was a very good one. Us people who want to subscribe will have everything like normal but people who want piece mill buy things they also will. I know when LOTRO went F2P they actually picked up alot more subs due to smart people realizing that its cheaper. Either way it gave LOTRO the capital to put out 3 or 4 expansions since it went to it.

Looks like BW is even going a step further by giving subs first login priority. At this time I am enjoying this game alot so to me this is a plus if it means they will be able to provide us more stuff on a quicker schedule. Cause with F2P you constantly have to add new shinies for the F2Pers to buy to keep the money coming in.

Now if i can just get me 8 more character slots I will be happy.

Free to play actually works out for me. I can pay for the Warzone and not the other crap I don't do now. (of course, this is assuming a reasonable price for the new content I actually want)

149.99$ for CE..

14.99$ since day one of the game...

For what? To have the game reduced to nothing and offered at 14.99 for people to come and troll on, and pay to win?

This is like a giant slap in the face from Bioware and after DA2/ME3...and now this, I'm basically at the point where I'm seriously thinking about not buying any other game by Bioware. If you guys are gonna be bunch of selfish, self absorbed, money grabbing d-bags, who don't LISTEN TO ANYTHING ANY OF YOUR PLAYERS AND FANS ARE SAYING then I'm not going to support you anymore.

Shame on you Bioware.

You can run, but you'll only die tired.

What do you mean? Did you not already get a special box full of crap with your collectors edition? Like a statue and a book or something? Don't you already get access to some special vendor on your fleet? What else do you think you are entitled to? You have already gotten what you paid for.

If you want more, you have to pay more just like everyone else.

More content faster, rofl. They couldn't make content even when people were throwing money at them, now that it's sunk to the lowest of the lows, content will be non existant. Mr. Lucas must be proud of this amazing masterpiece
