.........................I still wont probably ever go back to it. Alot has changed from around one year ago, when SWTOR hype was huge and was considered Wow's first real competitor. So many things wrong or broken about this game, but I wont go over the list of problems again, since there are so many threads about this topic. Plus I think SWTOR F2P route will be so hamstringed with limitations that it would get so danged annoying without having to use the cash shop. Knowing EA, they will try to milk this puppy dry. I dont think this will help SWTOR's current track at all, it may slow the decline somewhat but then later on, numbers will keep on going downhill. If they were doing what GW2 has done (Content, features, dungeons, abilities being free---then having a cash shop for extra items, bank/bag slot expansions, pets, etc. )
I dont think anything will turn SWTOR's uphill battle without shutting the game down to a complete overhaul of the game's structure. But you know EA will much sooner shut the game down for a tax write-off than do that. If that happens maybe in 5-10 years we will get a real SW mmo that will do the IP justice. Or maybe, just maybe, SoE be able to bring back SWG. One can only hope. My 2 cents.
Tbe Repopulation will be what SWTOR shouldve been.
