It looks like they really are going to TRY and make this F2P with enough limitations that'll coerce people into subscribing.
Of course, a lot of what they have tried to do so far has stunk, that's why they are in this position today.

People complaining about something being free baffles me.

Anyway it worked out ok for Turbine and Lotro.

It sounds good "on paper," but I have yet to see it really work out as advertised.
Well, unless you count shinies added to their reward/real money shop as "content." If so, then you will see an increase in the frequency of game content.
EA/BioWare on the state of SW:TOR:
"Your piece of mind is my highest priority. Rest assured, this will be done to perfection." Account ended: 8/16/'12 (August 16th, for those "across the pond.") @ aprox. 12pm CDT

Some information about new content in the FAQ:

"If the Free-to-Play option is not available until the fall, what are the benefits to buying the game now?


If you join The Old Republic now, you will start earning Cartel Coins for every month you are subscriber. In addition, in August we will be launching new content and plan to provide more frequent Game Updates going forward.
For more information on Cartel Coins and the rewards program visit: "

We now know why they've been silent and adding nothing new. To busy working on the life raft.

A lot of the things bought with coins sounds very much like what the legacy should have been, and wasn't.

Guess that's us into Stage 4.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
