Its not a good sign, Bioware is not listening to their players and every day more and more people are quitting, its a fact.

At this rate SWTOR will do what DC universe did. F2P for basic features, P2P for full features.
WoW is f2p up to lvl 20. Yeah I think that game is doomed as well
"Return with honor"

Vehicles in SWTOR are NOT mounts.

Maybe if they keep F-ing up, and giving us free months to compensate, it will become effectively F2P.

I don't want it to be free to play, I just want it to be fun to play.
For disappearing acts, it's hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left behind after eight of sleep and eight of work.

Wow is also over 7 years old and not 4 months old.

At a time when you have two big games coming out Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3, this is no time for big mistakes from Bioware.
Once again .. D3 .. a game that's delayed ... delayed ... delayed ... pulled apart and still has crap graphics and will prob be delayed again ..

Guildwars 2 ... a MMO that is quite nice looking ... yet is going to have the same issues this is if not more ..

A failed retort is just that.

Isn't this the 2nd most successful MMO in history? I don't get all of the whining 'everyone's leaving' hysteria.

While this is anecdotal evidence, there was a ~50% increase in players on Fleet last night on my server (179 vs. ~110).

If a day down because of problems after a big patch meant a game needed to be free - every MMO would be free.

Free play generally means a drastically lower maturity level and a large number of players that don't give a crap about the game or fellow players. I've seen that on DDO and LOTRO and EQ2. Granted DDO had to do it because the game was dead otherwise.

The door isn't all THAT heavy - go free play and I won't worry that much about my posterior as I depart.
