This only proves they do not care at all that there is a significant amount of people who do not like this idea at all.. but they don't care at all.. if they did they would at least have acknowledged this thread. this is complete garbage!!!

Welcome to my experience with SWTOR since I bought the game (Pre-purchase). Little response in forums. Canned CS ticket replies that didn't help and usually showed the CS paster hadn't even read my issue, CS forum help requests directed to informationless dev posts, etc. It's nothing new. Welcome to the ignored customer club.

I have had the same deal.. I have even called them and got the same lies there.. Really nice staff but their phone tech support knows about as much as we do about all of this.

Grinding? What grinding? The only grinding i've seen is in crafting anything good.

so CE owners get an extra 1000 coins to spend on stuff that should of been in the CE store but was ignored and it also seems to me that F2P will open the floodgates for creditspammers

Yep, there is absolutely no reason to sub anymore. Subs are just paying real money now for in-game trinkets...nothing more. You might as well, save your money and enjoy the content for free. If you do happen to see something you want, you can spend some money then I guess.

But the bottom line is f2p players could care less about the game and do not make a viable community (which is one of the biggest reasons to play an mmo); devs of f2p games do not make meaningful contect, only cookie cutter expansions because all there time is spend trying to develop items they can sell for real money, and despite the success of some other games the f2p content will not likely work for swtor because the content from 1-50 (the story and immersion) is the reason why most subs play. They are giving away what is valuable and charging for what is not. Great plan .

If my server is jammed full of FTP players, will one of them get kicked when I try to log in, or do I have to sit around and wait in que even though I am a subscriber?

I just want to add that there is just as much hoodwinking and marketing behind your subscription fee as the F2P gimmicks.

But, I digress, and I do not want to be one of those people who say one thing and mean another, so here is a real Gimmick for you...
