So basically you've answered half of the questions with 'we'll give you more information soon'. Please give the specifics to us ASAP because some of us really do care about the direction this game is going in.

Also, why are you discontinuing the Q & A and what will happen to the questions we asked last week that you said you would answer in a subsequent Q & A

Seems to me half the questions answered had already been answered if people had actually bothered to read the FAQ. Although I kinda wanted to know if there would be "in game" ways to earn cartel coins without purchasing them. I'm kinda glad the answer is NO right now.

Holy crap you answered one of my questions.

Some of the answers were as expected: generic, hand-waving, but for the most part you gave us information. Just a pity it was so short.

I was actually expecting to be sat here for half an hour, reading and re-reading to give cliff note's to the guild, but no. Shame :/

This means that if we go the F2P route after subscribing, 6 of our 8 characters become unavailable to us?

Yes but most likely you will be able to swap them out for a small cost
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

It is actually painful to read the answers. They are either so mind numbingly obvious (asked by people who obviously have never played a F2P game ever) or so pointless the answer is worthless. Why was not one question answered which the general populace could guess or menr anythings anwered.

I am having to re-write every sentence so I dont bretch the new comunity rules but after a week of questions about free to play nothing has been decided. I know it like beating a dead horse and bioware have given up on this game but the fact so many questions have been asked and all we have got is generic answers is really concerning.

Apparently the characters will be unavailable, but not deleted. Its your choice which ones... and they would be available again if you switched back to subscription it seems.

Sounds like it is going to be cheaper to unsub and just buy the features that we want instead of paying $15 each month(assuming they are puchasable and permanent) like quick travel, character slots, and inventory slots.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.
