That would probably get people queuing too. Not like they'd be giving away a ton each month, but it would show some good will and get people trying out the PvP.
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?

Is this referral mic on? It's free stuff and stuff, in game.

That's great and all but it's only a good incentive for PVPers those that only do PVE either because they are not good at PVP or simple hate PVP (especially TORs PVP which sucks) have no incentive to play.

And yet, you obviously are paying the sub price.

They mentioned it in one of the blogs, and said it was coming sometime after 2.4, but Musco said in one of the streams recently that it is NOT happening. The logic given was that too few people were hitting the weekly cap for it to be worth it.

You mean except for all of those dirty restrictions that they want also to be lifted and made free?

The economy is so busted that they want to charge 50 million to get into a guild ship and you want to regularly offer large amounts of free bonus credits to be added to the pot?

Restrictions like that are a pretty good way to prompt F2P players into subbing though, no?

I just re-subbed yesterday after ~2 year break. I came back to have a look with my old character in F2P... decided warzones were still fun... couldn't cope with the weekly restriction.. had to pay to keep playing.. so I paid up!

I'd just like to see some mission-less grind to do while not doing pvp. No quest. No daily or weekly limit. Just brain-relaxing, muscle memory training grinding of various difficulties of single mobs. All this aoe-sh*t with what mob runs where and has aggro on me or whatnot... meh... Just something a bit less brain-hurting than fleet chat.

Yes, that'll be a couple of nights for the overly dedicated... but I prefer a nice, slow grind to anything that feels like just another m-f schedule in life. Not what I game for.

This game isn't a charity. The dozens of men and women who work hard to produce this game for us deserve to be paid for their efforts. F2P players are leeches. Parasites. Dregs of society. And they're even worse than that when they have the gall to demand even more stuff for free on top of all the stuff they already get for free.

WRT F2P restrictions, BW needs to add one. Limit chat to Guild, Party, and Operations only.
These "dregs of society" actually saved the games backside, this is now the third biggest MMO on the market all thanks mostly down to the F2P move... which without you'd be pretty lonely playing this game all by yourself right now... if the servers were even still up that is?

Also not all F2P players are people with no intention of paying, a huge chunk of them are ex-subscribers who might be on the fence about returning and want to know if the game offers them something new/better to what they previously experienced.
