The implication of another paid expansion coming so soon is the only part of this announcement that bothers me, because based on what happened to the level 50 gear after ROTHC came out, I'm really not looking forward to my gear becoming worthless again.
You realize thats the hamster wheel EVERY MMO has right? Vanilla comes out, grab top tier gear etc etc. New expansion comes out, old gear is worthless grab new gear. Rinse, repeat and in Biowares case throw in extremely terrible armor designs while putting better looking stuff on a cash shop.

But would fit if we think of their expansion model more as DLC/Episodes, rather than WOW $40 bi-annual expansions. That expansion model is very archaic and only MMOs bbasically still bother with it.

Seriously?

As a loyal subscriber I do not get the 1050 cartel coins because I supported your game and purchased the expansion at early release?


You can say 'you got your monies worth' but in reality you are saying 'your loyalty means less than pissing off the new player that started in august and picked it up'

Get ready for the next exodus of irritated subscribers moving to free to play.

So basically going by your logic, in a move to gain new subscribers, they have inevitably pissed off the old subscribers and are losing them?

I've played since beta, been a subscriber 90% of the time since then, and at first I was pissed. I'm still highly annoyed and think a grant of 1050 coins to all subscribers who have it before it goes free would be nice.

A title...is weak.

Please explain to me why a late comer should get free coins, and a loyal subscriber gets a title and thats it? Makes no sense to me when the same later comers will prob be entertained as well, and for your information, I was bored of this game 6 months ago, and im also pretty tired of their lies and BS. The only reason I even stick around is because I have 350 guild members that enjoy it, and I like hanging around them, so yeah im here for the people, not EA and this bus load of crap. Nice assuption on your part pal

P.S How much does EA pay you to troll unhappy customers?
You got what you paid for, deal with it. You do think you're entitled whether you're accepting that fact or not. Don't be a child.

EA is avoiding a lawsuit by giving recent purchasers the coins. They can't just sell things to people one day and give it out for free the next. You don't apply to this because you've been a happy customer for the past 6 months apparently.

Gee, I wonder if there's a way they could have both attracted new subscribers and manged to not piss off old, extraordinarily loyal ones. I mean, a way that's not already posted in this thread half a dozen times...
