Mousover on F2P vs. Sub Chart

Looks like BioWare has a typo in one of their mouseover descriptors, but I'm sure somebody's going to NOT REALIZE ITS A MISTAKE and go bananas... You get the same mouseover message when hovering over the last item for both the F2P and Sub items at http://www.swtor.com/free/features. It says that both sub and f2p players won't be able to equip a lot of purples.

Clearly that's a mistake, so don't anyone panic... it's just a mistake in the message, not the mechanics.

Relax.

Your purples are fine.

Just a typo.

Breathe...
A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack. Unless there are purples involved. Then it's totally OK.

It could be worse, they could have had a typo which swapped the content of the columns round. Free2Play gets full access; subscribe and get nothing!

Well Got to love typos like that make people run around waving their hands and all....
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

It also says 'full access'. It has to be an error.

Sorry but they really are NOT the same......The FTP account have to buy a license, the subber has to buy "authorization" which is different.............Like you I hope its a typo, but I dont think so.

LOL.. yeah.. it's always good for a free showing of chickens without heads running through the forum.
Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

You don't know it is a typo. It's obviously not a copy/paste issue as both columns say something different, and "authorization" is too long a word to accidentally type.

I noticed this too. It worries me, as I would be very angry, to be subbed and have to buy authorization with my cartel coin, for something I already earned and am paying for. I really do hope it just a mistake.
