no you don't seem to understand. He bought the collectors edition. Which means he got well over 1,000 cartel coins.
That means he can use that to purchase the quick slot bars and anything else he needs.
Look at it this way not everyone needs the quick slot bars. So they gave him 1,000 cartal coins to decide how he wants to play. THey could have given him the quick slot bars and 0 cartel coins.
no he cant because he wasnt subbed at f2p launch. no sub - no free coins.
