The second is the equipment restriction, GL doing your end game ops with full blues.

Aside from that I really don't have any other complaints aside from Smuggler being under powered still.

And yes I am a returning player.

You're thoughts on the new F2P model?


PS: Also, games says I have coins and yet they don't show up. I did buy the game a few months ago so should I be getting some or what?
Cept, you cant do operations AT ALL unless you pay them for a weekly pass.

I agree though, the quickbar thing is pretty damn stupid. Some classes, you literally cannot play without 3 or 4.

F2P is not catered to endgame or ops. I think they hope people will sub if that is part of the game they really want to do.
Alright, 2nd complaint was end game complaint. HOWEVER, the limited quick bars is just a greedy move for something so minor in the game.

You clearly do not know what pay 2 win means. Pay 2 win = the best gear can be bought with $. that is not the case at all with TOR's F2P model

That's not pay to win. You're distorting that term. Anything that comes automatically with a sub is not "pay to win". Obviously non-subs won't be able to equip top-level gear and it's not even needed unless you're playing end-game stuff.

Still doesn't change that the quick bar restriction is extremely stupid.

I can't be the only one incredibly annoyed about the suddenly announced, absurdly low character limit for F2P am I?

I was seriously considering and even looking forward to F2P (as a student I can't afford a subscription really) but since this revelation I can't without deleting one of my 2 Level 50 characters.

A 2 character limit seems excessively low, espeically since it is the same for F2P and 'Preferred' Status (of which I am the latter) and it's like I'm being penalised for having paid before and created characters which I don't want to delete. I can understand limiting character slots, but 6 times less then subscription is ridiculous.

It's meant to be F2P, but I can't even begin until they introduce the option to buy more character slots. Seriously disappointed and probably won't come back after all, is anyone else in the same position?

The only two things I really want with the prefered status are

1: Have enough quickbar to play any class with all the potential of the class

2: Be able to fully use any grade of gear
Guarding a healer is not only the job the the skill ''guard''. It is also your job to stay around the healer to be a plague for the people attacking the healer.
