This game sucks and I hope it dies a slow and miserable death, but unfortunately I don't think this is the sign that it is going down. Until the Star Wars fan boys realize this game sucks it will go on for a good long time.
Anyway, AO offers a constant free trail and it is arguably a very successful game. Free trials mean nothing. Hell drug dealers give out free "samples" all the time in an effort to get new addicts and that certainly isn't a sign that the black market on drugs is going down hill; consequently SWG is just trying to get more "addicts."
SWG is trying to expand their market and I wish them the worste of luck.

It's not the Star Wars fanboys...in fact, it's the fanboys that hate it. I love Star Wars--I've been in love with the stories ever since I first saw them when they were re-released in theaters when I was six.
The fact is, this game is NOT a proper representation of the Star Wars Universe. It doesn't feel like Star Wars, and it has only served to bitter me from the saga--something that I never wanted to happen. DAMN SOE!

Until you cancel your subscription, you are only helping to continue the cycle of mediocrity.
Whatever! I think it's the Fan Boy's, you don't. Neither of us can prove or disprove each other so it then becomes an opinion.
The fact still remains that a trial means nothing. Point made.
I think we all forget the fact that single player games have been offering "free" demos for years and they have become the industry norm. MMORPG beta tests could be considered the equivalent of the single player game demos but often times they are limited where the number of players are concerned and can be incomplete and buggy.
A "free trial" solves this issue perfectly as it allows those who are on the fence a chance to try the game in it's current "finished" state. Doing this hardly signals that a particular game is in trouble, it is a sign that the game company is trying to expand it's player base for many reasons.
I appreciate them and think they are a great marketing strategy by the companies that run them. I hope this trend continues and would love a chance to try CoH or FFIX next.
