How about YOU people start by respecting your loyal fans and paying customers?!!

so, how about support forum, wil f2p be locked from that too ?
And what if a f2p have a brilliant idea that would fit into swtor very well, why not let him suggest it in a forum.
iīm all for giving less options for f2p. i even think ftp should have been to 30 or 40 only, but that would prevent people who are allready lv 50 to go f2p so thatīs probably out of the question. exept you could make it a thing from cash shops. open up 10 more lv. and if you sub you get them for free.
i just think comunication is a good thing, even from f2p. hell even from EA/BW, (not that there is much)

They need these bullies to bully others into silence. These bullies weren't silenced pre-launch, when we said that the game wasn't ready. These bullies weren't silenced the last months, when we said that something needs to change.

What makes you think that Bioware will silence these bullies now?!?
Not sure how someone that says, if you don't like it leave is really bullying. The real question is, why are you playing a game that you don't like? And why do you think that everyone in the forum should have to tolerate the constant negative forum posts, that you feel you are entitled to post?

Isn't that more of an example of bullying? Forcing your negative posts on everyone else?

How about if you pay a subscription you can post?

iīm all for fewer options ingame for f2p. But on forums i just dont think so. I dont care if a great idea is from a sub or a f2p.
Also at least the support forum should be for all. If a f2p cant get his game to work and thereīs no support heīll just uninstall swtor and then BW wont get any of his cash in their shops.
the trolling and whining wont get much worse even with the f2p. Only subs actually have much invested in the game so most of the whines will probably be from subs. If you play for free you set your expectations alot lower. (at least i would)

Good, I hope you stick to your guns on that. The reason I don't want f2p players on the forums is because I guarantee it will just be full of trolls and people bashing the game (more than there already is).

You do realize some pay more than $15 per month without a sub. A lot of games allow free players to get access if they pay $15 or more in a given month.

Lol personal attacks is a sure way to gain their respect.

This is why we don't have more communication.

If they are paying more then $15 a month they should sub anyways as it would prob be cheaper.

This place was toxic enough when plenty were still paying to play. It would become downright acidic if BioWare let anyone who created an account post. With the bare bones mod coverage as it is, this forum would become a spam site.
