I bought it and but I think this is great and welcome it. Nor do i expect anything in return because I happened to pay for it.

A lot of the games I used to play had this system, they launched DLC and then after a whiile It'd go free. That's just how it is so I see the purchase more as a VIP pass where you get to use it until it goes free.

I preorder it 5 month before the exit and i get:
3 items, a title and i have pay 8 euros.

People that buy it now will pay 8 euros and will gain 1050 CC for a value of 8 euros and a title

People after the 13 September will gain it free.

IS THIS FAIR?? Tell me that is fair, people that have preorder it pay MORE than other player, for the other player is ZERO, for US is 8 euros. This is the respect for loyal player that are here since launch? That have always preorder everything?

I defended this game to everyone who was thinking about quitting. I told people that it would get better....growing pains..... stick with it....

Yet every time Bioware opens their mouth... I get proved more and more wrong. Now, this.... telling me that my entire guild paid $10 dollars (netting them around $500 in income) and what do we get for it? A title... while the people who quit and come back... get it for free..... and everyone who recently bought gets coins. So everyone gets something worth value... except us loyal subscribers from day 1. Screw us right? We're Bioware/SWTOR fanboys/girls. We'll spend our money on anything piece of crap they put on a plate in front of us... they don't need to take care of us.

I've withstood a lot of crap with this game because I love Star Wars and Bioware. I played an inferior MMO as far as quality of life features ( can they seriously fix the GCD skips in raids already) because I so wanted this game to succeed. In the grand scope of things.. this in a vacuum is not that big a deal. But to me, I think it's the straw that breaks the camels back...

Hot. A face slap and last straw in the same post. Thumbs-up to you, sir! You have mastered the Art of Foruming!

But that's just fine, because I got to drive my Mustang for 6 months longer than everyone who's about to get one for free.

Here why don't I give you a much more realistic example for you to work with. you bought an ipone when it came out. you paid unrealistic amounts of cash for it. you loved it and flaunted it in your friends' face because they didnt have it. 6 months later you heard a rumor about a super secret space project....errr i mean a new version of the iphone...before you know it the price on that iphone you paid butloads for is going out for free to people buying new plans. THE OUTRAGE. HOW DARE THEY. Good thing stuff like this doesnt actually happen.

I'm irritated that all I get is a title..

I'm irritated MORE that the people who Pre-orderd it.. getting all the goodies that came with the preorder are ************ that all they get is a title..

If you preordered it, you got goodies!

Those of us who get screwed are the ones who bought it after the fact..

yes, it's fair, you got to play it for 5 months, people who bought it within the last month probably haven't even gotten to play it yet.

if you don't think it's fair then i will trade you my 1050 CC for 5 months of back pay at my job

You got to enjoy a game you valued the entire time. A few preorder goodies. First dibs at many new challenges. 6+ months access to new content. But yeah, poor you.
