If you mean Subscriptions being cancelled, then answer is definitely NO. Us subs pay for things that F2P players simply will not be allowed access to. That's why we pay a subscription. To get EVERYTHING, when and where we want it. Simple as that.

Yep didnt see any mention of 1.5 here

Also I've been on since launch since the program now goes back until December I count 11 months of subscriber rewards my page only shows 9, and also not the 250 bonus that was just mentioned.

I've scoured all of the F2P documentation. I know subscribers will be receiving a monthly grant of Cartel Coins, but I failed to see how much this will be. Does anyone know off the top of their head?

Oh, the post didn't mention it, but is this also the full 1.5 update? Doesn't look like it.
they had subscriber only servers, about 100 of them, they are now empty.

This time we get Cartel Packs instead. It's like the TCG and NGE all rolled into one. Want that shiny new item listed on their site (www.swtor.com/free) ???? Well guess what? You can't buy it. You have to buy their garbage packs filled with garbage items over and over and over and over again hoping to get one.

I can just see them now in their war room yelling at each other trying to figure out why people aren't buying this garbage.

Thanks
^ This. I hope they get the calculation issues addressed before the 15th.

us subs got screwed out of two months, or at least,, those who have been here long enough, since BW gave a free month to people twice, so that is not included in our "loyalty reward" of CC

Ok, so I'm not crazy. I knew that it was in November, but I wasn't sure if it was on the 15th.

I wonder... could the folks at BioWare really not know this? And if they did, why would they chose to launch F2P on that particular day?
