If I buy a digital copy of the game now that it is F2p, what happens?
If you read the F2P website ( http://www.swtor.com/free ) , it says you get preferred status by buying cartel coins card, spending some money at the cash shop or buying the game. That is what confused me. I expect that if I buy a digital copy of the game (some online shops still sell them, or even some real shops sell the box still) and I get a serial code, I should be able to use it, get my 30 days gameplay time and be a subscriber type account instead of preferred right?
Although subscription is just 13 euros for 30 days which should give you subscriber status directly without buying the actual game as it is now free to download.
Any info on this?
