I will help and meet allot of new players. I will avoid the forums for at least a week. F2P will be a hit and the naysayers will find something new to complain about for the next year. meanwhile I will be getting called "meat bag" allot and living in a star wars universe.

Life is good.

Predictions:

Section X will be bugged and the missions won't work.

Prices on the auction house for cartel items will start at the insane and then go insanely low then stabilize.

At least 3 times per hour someone will ask in general chat "where do i get my house?"

EA will be counting lots of money.

EA will be deciding whether to keep releasing new stuff or just cash out now.

I just thought I'd share this story... I logged on last night mainly to check out the GTN. I had huge, huge lag. The kind where the game sends you to your own personal Imperial Fleet gulag, and you have to stand alone and motionless waiting for the final kick back to the server screen. I restarted, and it happened again. Checked my connection and everything came up OK, yet it happened again.

Then I started thinking about hordes of F2Pers starting out, and incompetent BW having no idea how to handle the additional tax on the servers. I had a big ol’ rant brewing on the nerd range. I was going to QQ and threaten and cry salty nerd tears all over the forum and I know damn well I’d have had a chorus of support for blaming all my frustrations on F2P and BW.

For no good reason, because I already knew who to blame, I did a tracert. Instead of the proof I was looking for, I had a horror show moment like in When a Stranger Calls… the lag was inside the house. The why and the how is above my head, but my wireless card was reporting a good connection even though it wasn’t “N” or 5GHz. There’s nothing wrong with a 2.4GHz network per se, except when you know you aren’t running one. I reinstalled my Intel drivers, restarted, and the whole problem went away.

I expect a lot of witch hunting and futile nerd rage… like the kind I narrowly avoided Oh, and the massive devaluing of GTN items as attention and the initial glut of coins goes to the cartel market.

I predict players will demand Bioware to open up hundreds of servers.

LMAO! Here's what happened the last time players did that very thing:

A perfect example of why Bioware needs to stick to their guns and not bow to forum rants.
Peace out . . .

I predict a fun night in General Chat on the Fleets. Forums will be quiet, bugs and exploits will be found and fixed in 6+ weeks with the next 'patch'.

I doubt that many people are waiting for the game to go F2P...I could be wrong, but the game is only $5 these days and that includes 30-days of full access - anyone 'waiting' would probably have picked it up by now. Instead, I expect a lot of old faces/names to show up and rant in various chat channels.
