This game was supposed to be a casual game instead what happened? Money was spent and the game day 1 had tons of glitches from using the Hero Engine instead of making an Engine in house. Then stupid events like the Guild Summit to focus on the cockroaches the Hardcore Minority.

It took 200 people and major designers to be fired for EA to get it's point across that a dungeon finder was needed. but to further stick it to everyone they kept the dungeon finder and refused to make it cross server and that resulted in 100 more people being fired and the doctors resigning in shame.
The funny thing is that all of these things were told to them in beta. Even the Revanites (sp? can't remember how to spell it) were telling them this. Beta players were told in Phase 1 that they were only there because launch standards required a beta. One dev constantly told beta players that the in house testers were far more capable at solving the games issues then randoms.

Well then. Give free players the option to hide their helm and they won't complain about it. And you won't have to look at the ugly helmets.

Fun level fixed!

It's silly, really. What is there to lose from F2P? Not much. It'd just coax some people into spending money on Cartel Coins or re-subbing.

On a lighter note, 13 days after the election and the first time I heard "socialist'! Progress.
