You forgot to include the people who like to talk about how much they hate the people they think are talking about how much they hat SW:ToR.

Would dearly love sub-only servers.

Just got my girlfriend into the game and the first thing we do is turn off general chat.

With this Pay-By-Pieces coming in, the second thing we'll do now is enjoy a nice 2-player co-op game with no other chat at all ... and nothing more.

Ahahaha - great business strategy.

Let's give away the good part of the game - the voiced storyline - away for free and charge for the crappy part - the ops that nobody really likes.

Game is so screwed it's not even funny.

Yes, that is currently the plan.

This is the only model I would've found acceptable, so I approve.

Depending on how things are implemented.
economy my foot! , if 50 cents a day really break your budget you should have pawned that pc a long time ago, what bioware should have done was sell client game codes+free month for 5-10 dollars and keep the subs if they wanted more customers/subs , that would have been a good "the economy is tough" sub booster, but as a paying customer from day 1 , i feel downright insulted that i will have to deal with the incessant ninja looting, whining, complaining and downright disgusting communites in the f2p game scene nowadays

and my origional point still stands u think youle really see new class story missions in the same way that they are now anytime soon?

if im wring ill come back and you can scream i told u so untill then im out.
Most paid sub game in the past didn't give us new raids every 3-4 months.. you had to wait for the paid expansion which took a long time. WOW works this way you have to wait 18months to get new raids and you pay for it 39.99 if I'm correct.
