As a subscriber at launch, thats should be nine months: November 2011 - July 2012. I am missing 2 months, and ive never missed a billing cycle.

So from what month does the coins start to take place: January 2012- July 2012 ?
I don't think they count anything prior to the games actual launch, so anything before December 20th 2011 would be ignored, and the first month was free with the purchase of the game. So the clock, for want of a better term, would not have started until January 20th 2012. Also, as I recall, we got a free month as a result of technical issues.

So in theory the current numbers would be:
January - July: 150 x 6
August - September: 200 x 2

So when the 'Bill Date' for October its people will get another 200.

At least, this is how I understand it...

I don't think it counts until you hit the months 'Bill Date,' for example I have 60 more days already paid for but it wont count those until November and Decembers 'Bill Dates.'

It would be appreciated for a dev to step in because it seems unfair .

(Not even speaking of people who upgraded with the on sale version of the CE and are getting more coins than pre-order CE.)

WARNING@devs:
check out the Subscription vs. Free-to-Play Features

In the English version you are saying that subscribers need to buy an authorization to equip purple item vs in other translation they can equip them.
Theory: This seems to be an oversight.

Statement: There's no doubt that it's supposed to say "Unlimited access to purple grade items."

It's odd...I have three accounts - all CEs, all activated within a few hours of each other, all on 6 month subscriptions.

#1 - 2,650
#2 - 2,650
#3 - 2,450

I have the 1,000 pt CE bonus, the 7 months of the 150 pts, and the only difference is one of the accounts has only two of the 200 pts months, while the others have three. I won't worry too much until we get closer to the F2P date.

As to the value of the coins...I'd guess that they will be similar to the points you buy for The Sims 3. $1 = 100 points. An XP Boost (or similar item) probably ranges from 10 points - 50 points, depending on strength.

I expect there will also be pets, ship decorations (like the Sith Throne), cosmetic items (like the mask), special vehicles, etc.

It appears that http://www.swtor.com/FREE/features has been updated with some new info - including insights into some of what will be in the Store..

Yesterday I was at 2300, today I'm at 2500.

So it confirms what I was suspecting with the 1month vs 3months sub plan since I got billed during the night, please check my post on page 10.

I'm liking the Freebie list now, the features and how they plan to address them. Some good, some bad, but the fact they list F2P as being able to purchase crew skills via coins, it gives me a vague hope that they'll use this to pave the way for subs to add a 4th skill. I'd love to double up on some crafting if possible. Scav/UT? There's two skills that work with that perfectly. Or, heck, adding Scav to my 'weaver so I can pick up those odd metals that I never should have needed to make some of the gear in the first place.

I don't like space (as it's presently implemented), wouldn't miss that. Don't care for warzones, wouldn't miss that. Almost never run FPs or Ops, wouldn't miss those (much).

On the other hand, I always wind up expanding my inventory and cargo, so that's enough to keep me subbed for a good bit of time.
