It's funny that the only feedback they now listen to is the free-to-play players. Never mind the 700+ post about why people unsubscribed.

Way to go Bioware, way to go. Truly the upstanding individual Mr. Hickman sure is. </sarcasm>

Of course. they are trying to bury it among other old threads. Damage control when they are trying to sell as many pre-orders for Makeb as possible.

700+ posts made by, at most, 70 people.
Statistics their forum moderators are much more clear on seeing.

From a revenue point of view, its more likely to survive than GW2.

Since its EA were talking about, everything is possible, but i wouldnt bet on it.

I dont get it, why the hell I should pay for ability to grind to 55 lvl in the same game, if I ALREADY paying them as a subscriber!? What next, they going to sell each update??? Why be a subscriber in a first place then?

P.S.: This reminds me of the PW-like MMO's, where you get all the edge and no sweet if you have money. And it seams Bioware leads the game in the same direction. Way to go... >.>

Im bumping this thread to help prevent it from being buried.

I dont plan on buying the Makeb update. I mean I already paid $60+ shipping for this game and they gave it all away for free. But now I still have to pay 5.99 for this one planet and 5 extra levels even though i have been subbed non stop since launch?! F U EA!!!

Im pretty pissed about the direction this game has been going with all the cash grabbing and getting fairly close to P2Win...

Since free to players cannot post in the forums I am not sure how exactly they are being listened. Oh, or create tickets...

And this statement is based on?..

P.S. I find Free-to-Play restrictions quite alright. The game is almost absurdly expensive, so it makes sense that they encourage subscribing any possible way. I just wish that would translate in better game development compared to what we had during summer.
