Heck, of the features, only 2 really have anything to do with F2P. At least 2 of them are definitely NOT part of F2P, as I believe you have to subscribe/Pay to get Section X.

that being said, after looking through the main website menu, and seeing what you DO click to get there (text saying 1 day to free-to-play, find out more button that puts you there)

Yeah, misleading. Context IS important. Some webdesigner probably combined pages and/or took a shortcut of linking to an existing page.

ye thats exactly what i mean, its the context the page is setup as from the link on the front page, but hey who knows, the warzone and space missions could be here tommorow, we dont specifically have to test them as we saw them working at E3 so the testing could have been internal, its not like we test everything that hits live.

I predict there to be a major issue with it, which requires another patch. Of course, this will be on Friday night, during APAC prime time. A great time for new people to try out this game so that our servers can go from 40-90 people on fleets to 140-190 people. But no, downtime. Then we will be asked if downtime during 5pm-10pm more than once a week is normal, to which we will have to respond "Not always, but it is to be expected"

I do however predict much QQ and breaking of teeth on teeth over server queues.

The goldilocks syndrome, MMO style: WAH! there's not enough players!.... WAH! theres queues!.... rinse and repeat because an MMO server can never have exactly the right amount of players (ie: one player less then what triggers a queue and all players standing by to be at the beck and call of goldielocks for insta-grouping, and the players must not compete with goldielocks for in game poridge either).
I predict whatever happens Andryah will be defending it

I also predict I will be spending all my coins

Maybe this is a surprise? Oh, please, I want this surprise!

Atlantis will resurface.
Bigfoot will be found.
Aliens will finally be debunked (or proven real)
My ISP will become stable
SWTOR will make the F2P transition with little trouble.
LOL I want some beach front property on Atlantis, and Bigfoot lives next door,,LOL and we can not debunk Aliens, i still have to many tin foil hats to sell.. thanks for the chuckle
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I am an optimist, even when the odds are stacked against me, so I like to think it will go smoothly. New and old player will return and, hopefully, the future of SW:TOR will be a little more secure. Sure, there may be a few bumps, but that's what you get with Online gaming.

I too will be spending all my coins.

And I defend nothing. All I do is provide objective contrast to other peoples subjective hyperbole. Sometimes it's a target rich environment too.

Prediction: Outlaws Den will be camped. Fleet overcrowded with spam questions. There will be server queues. Sub Fifty pvp will be filled with horribads.
