You know that isn't that bad a rate, considering it was something lower than that (250?) when they first announced it.

All this information about how many coins you get for free as as subscriber or how many dollars a coin costs is pretty darn useless until somone tells us what we can actualy buy with 500 coins.
Understanding the scope of the problem is the first step on the path to true panic.

Unless prices change, folks have been posting a lot of screenshots from items off PTS that show not only the item but the associated price.

What I'm interested is the prices of CC in euros. If its just normal rates, thats fine.
I'm worried about a scenario where Europeans get screwed by some system that doesn't care about the rates, like 1$ = 1 as some other games have used..

I don't suppose anyone can tell me what will happen to the collector's edition vendor after the game goes free to play?

I only ask because I don't get that much on social security disability, I have a chance to finally afford a CE...and I'd hate to find the CE vendor is being taken out because they game is going free to play.

that...and I want to get the vette customization 6 ^.^;

They won't do that.
You can't sell people a 150 special edition and then take out one of the items you promised them.

Hey, thanks for listening and relaxing the bonus coin conditions! Hopefully everything goes well and we can all enjoy this game for some time to come.

Cheers all around

If you read this post and then compare it to the German version, you'll see that the minimum requirements for preferred status are a minimum purchase of either USD 4.99 or EUR 4.00, so at least in some places they appear to respect currency conversions. There's still hope.

What's ironic is that the people complaining that SWTOR isn't SWG are also complaining that the NGE ruined SWG, but continued to play it for 6 years.

I don't see why some people seem so negative in their posts. FTP is a great addition to the game, and it will help subscribers, indirectly. Stay positive, guys. SWTOR is still alive, and we're still playing.
