Subscriber going free-to-play

Ok so, I'm a subscriber and I want to go free-to-play for 2 or 3 months. My question is, if I don't connect to my account during these months will I lose some of the things I have like my money or my items? Cause I know there is a money cap and free-to-play can not wear purple items and when I subscribe back I do not want to see that I lost all my money and all my items (full campaign by the way so you can understand my worrys)

Hello!

I can't comment on most of this, but if you look at: http://www.swtor.com/free/features You'll get an idea of what you can get for the various subscription methods. Iirc, there are limits on amount you can carry/credits carried/ features etc.

I don't think you'll loose your items, but you may get a credit cap on your account.

Hope this helps!

You won't 'lose' the money, but you'll be unable to spend it whilst F2P.

Once you resubscribe, your items will be untouched, and you will receive the remainder of your money again.

Also, you can still wear the Campaign gear whilst F2P, you just can't equip any new purple gear.

The credits are definitely no prolbme, they will go into escrow and back out, if they do that at all when you don't log in.

What i still haven't figured out is what will happen to commendations, supposedly you will loose all above the cap, but i have no idea if it really works that way and when it would happen.

I was subscriber, then I go F2P and now I'm subsriber. The first time I was subscriber I had 21/1000 Coruscant Commendation, when i logged in as F2P I had 21/20. So i think they are untouched, ovviously, playing F2P you'll have a cap of 20 for planets commendation, I don't know what is the cap for PvP, HM FP, OPS, anyhow the ones that you have will not be touched.

Yeah, i kept my commendation as well, but there is a post where people lost the commendations above the limit, so i would like an official response to what exectly happens.

Credits above the limit will go into escrow, so no problem if you sub again.
