    There's already a thread for this.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    Yeah I do agree that is a bit jacked up, those who purchased a full box copy and paid for several months of gameplay should get some benefit for it.

     

    on the other hand they need to make f2p good enough to get people to play, but crapy enough to make them want to pay for it.  This seems like a decent way to do just that.

    the missing link in a chain of destruction.

    All spelling and typographical errors are based soely on the fact that i just dont care. If you must point out my lack of atention to detail, please do it with a smile.

    Wait until you log in and notice you have only two quickslot bars available, making the game totally unplayable at 50.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    It's best that gamers and the gaming media finally bury this game into the trash heap of history.

    Boohoo spend the £2 it costs to get them back account wide or buy them for credits from someone.

    EA and Bioware won then - they forced you to spend money for stuff that should be part of the standard game's UI. You supported a new level of greed in F2P games. After inventory slots, or skills, they now also sell you parts of the UI.

    At least all the classes are open.  Several games that went F2P locked out classes that people bought the box, or an expansion for.

    Absolutely, I may have been tempted to play a storyline through, but seriously f*ck them greedy grasping b*&tards.

    It's not worth a sub fee.

    Why pay a sub for a "mmo" that plays like a cooprpg.

    How about f%$# the whining, cheap ba$!ar$# that would have bi!$#ed no matter what they would have done. How is it more greed? They didnt jack up the sub price thats still the same. Back off the mcDs for a day or two boom there is your $14.99. The insane idea that people are entitled to stuff is amazing. You are not entitled to have everything for free my god people

    it's not FOR FREE, my god you man....

    He payed for the account, he already payed for every month and now if he decides to go down the road of f2p he gets into the same trash can as every other F2P who DID NOT pay a single coin to create his account in the first place... So he would be paying for something he already payed. Go figgure, eh?

    I usually defend freemium style systems because i know all "Free to play" in this day and age means is extended demo sort of. However.. Even i cant defend a game that freakin sales bonus quick slots in a cash shop? Really? We get a couple ability bars that just barely cover skills at 50. Im hoping i just couldnt find another setting and im mistaking. Them charging for bonus ability bars for user interface would be enough to make me uninstal.

    You must be kinda crazy to still play or support this game.
    I fell for it at launch and quited a few weeks after and lost close to 180 euro on this abomimination.

    EA / Bioware both failed gamers in any sense of the word.
    Like someone already said burrie this game and never look back.

    Same shit happens with the other money-hungrey publisher ($O€). Shame how some publishers go around with their loyal players... Thanks for the warning. No more SW:TOR for me now (like I don't play EQ2 anymore either)

    i just returned to see what F2p was about and have over 10 chars on diff servers

    you get to keep already created chars and can play them all

    the 2 char limit on free and prefered does is stop you making more characters

    EA/BW don't care what you've done for them in the past.  They only care about what you will pay going forward.

     To be honest you now have 100% more access to the game with out paying a subscription then before. And if you buy a subscription you can play just like you did before.

     

    So... You fail.

    For NOW.  They've already stated they will address this in the future.  Don't expect to keep more than 2 characters per server forever.  Take advantage of it now by leveling the characters you would choose to lock when they force you to actually pick 2.

    People who care about players left Bioware, rest of them are only drons that do as the master said.

    As much as I think the quickbar thing is punatively handled, I disagree that you *need* more at 50, much less before.  I have 3 50's, all of which have done Ops and HM's, and I still only use 3 bars, 1 of which is just for convenience things (class buff, sprint, speeder, quick travel and fleet travel).  I could easily get by with just the two skill bars.

     

    Also, to address the OP's question...  If you have more than two characters, you can keep them all active as preferred status.  What you wouldn't be able to do is create anymore characters unless you either resub or delete existing characters down to less than 2.  You're basically grandfathered in with your existing characters.

    You make me like charity
