That is already taking place without my suggestion. As every subscriber is going to get a unique item. And I would bet we will continue to get unique items. Those without them will obviously be F2P'ers. It's going to be a great way to keep the paying players and the cannibals separate.

No! Just because some is F2P doesn't mean they are going to cause trouble or anyting else. In the last year or so prior to the game being released and then the game being released I have met jerks and nice people. Until you take the time to meet someone quit juding them.

Being a guild leader I would not have a problem with guilding them as long as they abide by the rules of respect and courtesy.

It is actually none of our business who is f2p and who isn't. That is private information and as such should remain private.

Of all the ideas I have heard on all my years on this forum this one is the most asinine one to date. You may not like the f2p option but that in no means we should have something so childish just so you can feel superior to someone.

Last time I checked everyone puts their clothes on the same way and are supposed to be treated the same way.

How dare we judge someone before we even meet them. I have played a games that were not free to play and games that are F2P and guess what people are the same. Some are nice people who I count myself lucky to know and classify as my friends.

Then I have met people that are jerks, who think they are better than anyone else, that I don't' want to know. We have no way of knowing what type of people we are going to meet just becasue they have an option for F2P. So what, that doesn't mean they are going to cause problems.

Though F2P may not be the exact idea I expected I in no means want anything or anyway to separate players. The only way players should be separated are the ones that I will and have placed on ignore for horrible behaviour.

No. When this game goes F2P most new subscribers are going to probably try F2P first. If everyone is a jerk to F2P players, they won't want to subscribe. In case you didn't know, more subscription numbers is good for the longevity of SWTOR, if not for the frequency and abundance of new content.

and your point ? the said items can easy not be used and it's a fluffy which as others have said it will come on sale in the shop so everyone can buy.
The icon your on about is permanent can't be hidden and that is wrong, for ref. why not check up on history when people have had stuff stamped on them cause they are different, as there is no difference to that than what your asking for ....
You may not know but players get attached to there characters and sometimes it's an extension from themselves how they may see themselves if things in there life were different,there are way to many negatives for this idea.

But what if F2P players spend more than 14.99 a month on elements from the cartel shop? Should they then get a VIP icon above their heads so they can start discriminating people like you?

Cool idea. I know one game that went F2P, I forget which now, said on average over the course of a year that "free" players did pay more then sub players, most aren't cheap, they just want to see what they are getting before they buy something.

No one is entitled to being a complete jack[censored].
If you do, in my opinion it says a lot about you as a person, if you feel you are within your rights to look down on someone else for something that doesn't effect you in the slightest.

Sure. I would be okay with that.
