So it wasnt just me then.

I'm worried now because the longer it takes to get the new section, the longer we have to wait for the new warzone.

This is good news. I wish they would designate a SUBSCRIBERS ONLY SERVER though. But hey, if it gets more people in the game, great.

Oh, the post didn't mention it, but is this also the full 1.5 update? Doesn't look like it.

They are probably going to update it to 1.5 as F2P releases?

Anyways, I am so happy, can't wait to use my cartel coins.

Considering that the actual cartel market is in 1.5 most likely, Its not much point giving us cartel coins we cant use.

There's Q&A on DarthHater that confirms 15th for 1.5 update together with F2P.

The reason it made me think of that is because I believe they've already lowered the extraction cost a little on PTS, or perhaps I'm confusing things there too. It sure felt cheaper when I put my mods in cartel gear though.
Yes extraction costs are lower in 1.5 for subbs , I must admit I saw him ask this question late last night and forgot to answer him sorry.

As for the announcement and the new , old subbs can get their complimentary coins if the re-sub by 20th of December is a great addition. Now who at bioware is a member of , Twitter , facebook and any other social communities get posting this new part of the f2p conversion and I tell you one thing your game will be busy for the rest of the year at least.

Great news thanks.

Hmmmm it say one time grant of the coins. Does this mean that Subs don't get a set amount of coins a month for being subs like every one thought?
