I came back to SWTOR just a month ago with F2P (I subbed immediately, never did F2P) because I firmly believe that EVERY MMO deserves 2 shots. I always buy every new MMO on launch and give it a month or two to see if it holds my attention, if it doesn't then I always return 6-12 months later to see what has improved and give it a second chance.

After being subbed for a month and getting a new character to 50 and trying the new ops, I can firmly say that this game is still not worth the sub fee for me. Add in this horrible nickle and dime policy that Bioware is clearly taking and I will be unsubbing for this game once my month runs out - Its now time to give Rift that second chance - Maybe its REAL expansion (That triples the size of the entire game and adds an enormous amount of new content) will have made the difference in that game for me to stick with it.

No it isn't alot of $. The point is I'd sooner throw a $10 bill in my fireplace than send it in for some vague promise that is slated at least 3 months away.

People should quit preaching. And they should stop eating McDonald's food too, it isn't good for them.

It may not be good for them (a lot of food billed as healthy is worse though) but it "can" be tasty and as a result people gain a benefit from their expenditure, its a matter of gratification and you cant deny that McDonalds patrons must gain that more often than not given the money that they make.

That said you wouldnt imagine a McDonalds customer getting upset when something is added to the menu would you? It says a lot for the bad will Bioware are generating and the lack of real developer interaction will only serve to make it worse, regular dev interactions actually tames feral communities as it creates the illusion that they listen. I dont expect the situation here to change because the everyone working at Bioware has the sword of damocles over their heads and could very well not be employed, (Except for Hickman, he seems to get rewarded for failure for some reason) as a result they are terrified to post something that could come back to haunt them.

Well that pretty much guarantees I wont ever get it. NO game company gets financial information from me (I have been burned too many times). If I can't get it in a store or with CC (from my gamecard sub or cc cards when they come out) I just will do without. What a shame.

Im sorry where did i mention that? or whats the relevance? Really Im interested in where you are going with your subscriber based fast food model, not sure what its got to do with someone paying $5 for a burger and gaining gratification which was my point but please go on.
