Originally posted by Dreskest They are going to offer the full leveling experience 1-50 with access to all the story completely for free, and that is very generous in my opinion. I honestly see this thread filling up with all the cheapskates and freeloaders complaining that they can't have everything for free and hating on EA for being so evil and greedy.
The one person I actually kind of agree with. Though I think some better options for folks who bought the game and played in the past......needs to be better than just cartel coins. I actually won't touch the game, F2P or sub, being a recent horrific customer service experience I had with them.............in-game help, which I was told to email support. Emailed support 3x over the next 2 weeks, hour wait on a phone call before giving up and cancelling/uninstalling. Funny actually being I just returned to the game and was looking forward to finishing some toons, found out for some reason in server merges they had moved 1 high level toon to a completely different server than where all my characters actually were.....no clue how that happened. In "cancelling feedback" I left the comment of not receiving an help with the issue.........its been 2 weeks and still no response to any of the emails or the cancel feedback.
Sorry about the babble, just fair warning of horrid customer service.

I suppose I can take this as a compliment, since you found the unavoidable truth somewhat entertaining.
The truth hurts sometimes. Face up to it and stop calling truth-tellers whiners?
Maybe if you posted your whines less frequently I wouldn't have even noticed. But at least you are coherent and mostly reasonable and so I can't justify just blocking you. Just because I think you're whining a lot, it doesn't mean I think you are wrong. I jsut think you complain too much about the same thing over and over. Maybe it's time to move on.
Aww I'm sorry I crapped on your game. I'd like to say that I'll do better next time.
But I'll call crap as I see it, so no promises.
A shame you might ignore me, I actually liked what you had to say in other threads, Frodo. I wish it was bi-directional.
It's not my game. I quit during the first month. But this is the last post of yours I'll read. Thanks for showing your true colors so that I don't need to waste another second reading your self important rants.
Well this seems like the greatest plan by EA since Wile E Coyote decided to have Roadrunner for lunch
Actually no, these plans for F2P make Wile E Coyote look like a tactical planning genius
I play STO atm, now that is quite a good F2P model as you can do and earn everything a paying player can have, hell if you sub for 1 month and you use the stippend to buy the energy credit upgrade there is no difference between you and a payer.
Even if you dont you can get Dilithium - very very easy to get - to trade for Zen and buy anything you want, you want another character you can get it without spending a penny, a new ship beyond what you get for free, more bank/inventory, flashy alternate clothing plus loads more you can get without spending anything.
SWTOR F2P is just so restrictive

Gotta love these craptastic *cough* "free" to play models they come up with lol.

Originally posted by Karteli Originally posted by kulhat Hey!, maybe they WANT to annoy people away, what do we know All this will surely work in that direction.
This is a good speculation as to their intent. If EA can MAKE this game fail, then they might be able to excuse themselves from their obligation with George Lucas .. an obligation which carries a high cost.
In essense, EA might be trying to get this game to tank, because in the long run, it's more profitable. They still need to show that they "tried", which will be important in court hearings.
This is what I thought the moment I saw the f2p model.
The quickbar bit bugs me, I have 42 keybinds and use all ability rows so that means combat will be super gimp with that restriction.
So far the F2P restrictions put me off, I'm not gonna even bother logging in.
So this is their last resort? This is such a mess and it's really idiotic in my opinion...
Well, atleast they'll fail again if nothing else... Maybe that'll teach EA a lesson finally, that greed bastards.

OP, your obessive crying over a game you dont play or like is getting ridiculous...
3 Choices Folks....
1. Pay the sub fee
2. Dont play
3. Use the F2P model they introduced
Its thier game and thier rules. Bottom line.
I dont like parts of the F2P model either, but crying about it or calling EA/Bioware names isnt gonna change it nor does it make you look cool to internet strangers. Sorry.
All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.Playing: ESO, WOT, Smite, and Marvel Heroes
Originally posted by Sciva One skill bar? Who the hell restricts that sort of thing? Don't they want us to play it or somthing? It sounds like they just want to make it uncomfortable for free players so they sub, but i fear this sort of thing will just push players away and do more harm than good.
what a joke , i still laughing .....only EA can restrict skill bars lol
Why in heavens name woudl anyone EVER think that this had to be restricted
Crew skill that returns lockboxes do not return lockboxes. Instead, players are asked to subscribe to get full rewards.
Ok this i can understand... But it is still not a good idea.
9. Flashpoint & Operations
Again why in all that is holy did they think this was a good idea...
Yeah.. this F2P conversion is going to be DoA
To bad as DDO, LoTRO and DCUO have proved that F2P can work very well with a converted game.
This have been a good conversation
Originally posted by Karteli Originally posted by funyahns I was looking at offical forums, and a large portion of people were supporting the 1 hot bar for ftp. I think its a bit out crazy to expect this to actually get someone to want to sub. If I am playing a game on a demo, which is sort of what ftp is. The last thing you want to do is to make me feel unwelcome or to make my in game life complicated. What they should do is make the game fun, where I am meeting people who want me to group with them and stuff. If I am making friends and having fun I am far more likely to sub than if you try to make everything inconvenient.
The official forums is full of shills, who promote anything and everything EA offers.
It is against the law for EA to advertise and promote / criticize others for their own agenda on external sites, like this one.
Having EA promote their own products on their own websites is like going to a Coke(tm) website and reading about how it's #1 in a taste test.
The SWTOR official forums can be entertaining, maybe even informative, but you need to skip through all the BS. EA pays people to shill. Hi Andryah :-)
Definately agree qith the highlighted. She can't stand my ass on that forum.
Originally posted by Mardukk It takes a very special type of contrarian to defend these restrictions. I commend you all, truly the elite of the elite of your craft.
Yeah. That's what I was thinking too. But there are is always that special few who no matter how bad something is, they will defend and do their darndest to twist it into something good.
Originally posted by Magaskaweel According to http://www.swtor.com/free/features there are no hotbar restrictions. Am I missing something, or should we trust some fluff blog site over the official one?
It's taken from the Public Test Server, there is plenty of videos with F2P walkthroughs and such, so it didn't come out of thin air.
That being said, thanks to an uproar across social sites, EA is rethinking their stance. In an update today:
We've been observing PTS closely over the last few days. In that time, we have generally been very pleased with how well the build has been performing, as well as overall reaction to the build both on the boards and in-game. That being said, based on community and internal feedback here and further deliberation, we will in short order make the following changes to the Free to Play restrictions:
