See, this is what I am wondering about... I was here for the early start, have been on a 6 month sub since launch, but I am only showing six months at 150 coins.

I would like to see someone official explain why some people are being given 150 extra coins for a month that other people, here from the very beginning, aren't getting credit for.
Mandatory referral link. Feel free to use it. It's free stuff.

I doubt that Bioware has any real control of the money making end of things, except in passing.

Over react much? The arm muscle development in this fandom must be extreme, what with the constant flailing.

I also only show 6 x the 150 coins, looking at my account payment history I show no payment for May this was because back in April if you had a lvl 50 character you received a free month.
so if those that show 7 x 150 coins could confirm that they indeed paid for May.
cause this is the only thing I can see for the difference.
But thin that bring up why punish those you once rewarded?

I get a big fat 0 so I'm not too concerned about any of this.

Personally I found the information about how many CC I got rather uninteresting without knowing how much things are going to cost.

What worries me, though, is the stratification of the community that's going to happen. Some of the restrictions will have severe implications on the gameplay.

Limiting crew skills to one per character will reduce the amount of materials and crafted items relative to the amount of players on a server. That is, if existing players stay subscribed and the overall playerbase is, say..., doubled. If a large enough percentage of subscribers go over to F2P, the shortage will be even worse. Inflation ensues. People start going to external sources for the needed credits (Yo, dawg. We heard u liek gold spammers...).

Another problem lies in restricting the use of purple quality gear. This essentially turns SWTOR into a "Pay to Win" type of game. Again, a major differentiation between paying and non-paying players.

The purpose of the conversion to the F2P model was to attract new players and entice former subscribers back to the game. However, if the player base is seperated into "elite subscriber master race" and "dirty freeloading nerfherders", chances are that new players attracted by the F2P model aren't going to bother getting into the game.

The F2P model won't affect me much. I'll probably burn 1-2 cards a year, so I can see new content and polish off the rest of my alts' stories. I haven't seen much of the shop items, and none of it is needed. So... Coins? Meh.
