Itīs really cool that u can buy additional warzone matches really good, but I really don't like that as a FTP only have ine quickbar, that just seems greedy to me. So before u release this make sure that u can have more than one quickbar as a FTP player, at lvl 50 u can not use just one quickbar, also u can buy new races, would be cool, but paying players will get acces to new races

they have already announced that F2Pers will get 2 bars now because of the feedback... also as far as I've seen you can already buy race unlocks with cartel coins

lol man all your wishes are coming true before you even post them

If Bioware reads this:

Please add level 50 armor... theres level 15, 31, 35, and 43 but nothing for level 50 players...

Create a tab in the cartel market that only players with a subsrciption can access... ( for example headgear, weapons, emotes, and things that are in the packs... out of the packs)

And if you would be so nice... reduce the coin cost for things in the market for subscribers ( A LITTLE BIT )

Please !!!!

They really are holding true to their promise: they are ONLY providing convenience items in the Cartel Market.

Take a good look:
  • No planet mission packs!
    • That means that the GAME is really ALL there for Free: class quests, planet quests, heroics, bonus series, even Flash Points (full rewards only for the 1st 3, but you can keep playing them). Everything is accessible and playable.
  • Everything else is convenience.
    • You want more than 1 quickslot bar? Unlock them or subscribe. (Take a good hard look at your abilities. You only really need one bar for the abilities that you normally use. The other 3 bars are filled with "occassional"/"situational" abilities. Those bars are there for "convenience".)
    • You want to hide your helmet? Unlock the option or subscribe.
    • You want to color match your gear? Unlock the option or subsctribe.
    • Enjoying the PvP and want to play more than just 3 games? Unlock the option or subscribe. (NOTE: LOTRO has been F2P for years and they only recently unlocked PvP for F2P. SWTOR is doing it from day 1.)
    • Etc., etc., etc...

For those who currently subscribe and thought they could unsubscribe and still get everyhting they have now for nothing, think about this: if you unsubscribed and your paid time ran out *today* would you be able to play tomorrow? The answer is "no".

But when F2P goes live you will be able to play. Not only that, but the way this is setup, you will be getting a whole game for nothing. Albeit with restrictions to your "convenience". If those conveniences are important to you either subscribe again or unlock them. Your choice.

I'm really happy with what I've seen so far. They really are delivering on what they promised.
I wouldn't want to subscribe just to get a decent experience in any Star Wars game.
We live, we die, and the wheels on the bus go round and round.

You really need to take a look at these 2 pages:
SWTOR Free to Play FTP player restrictions - Dulfy - http://dulfy.net/2012/10/24/swtor-fr...-restrictions/
SWTOR Cartel Market Items - Dulfy - http://dulfy.net/2012/10/23/swtor-cartel-market-items/

If you seek answers, you must always ask questions. - Master Vandar Tokare.

[Suggestion] Add another Blaster Pistol with the "A-300 Heavy Sonic Needler" model = DONE!

You guys will have all your points when this goes live.

What happens on the PTS stays on the PTS!

(In other words, the Cartel Coins you have/had on the PTS were for testing on the PTS. When F2P goes live you will still have the Cartel Coins you are supposed to have (and any that you had on the PTS will not transfer over to the live environment).)
