Star Wars: The Old Republic News - Those who have yet to give the newest expansion to Star Wars: The Old Republic a try will have a chance to try a portion of it between now and January 3rd. Players should have at one time been a Preferred player attained either through the purchase of Cartel Coins or due to having been a subscriber at one point in the past. Agreeing to receive the SWTOR newsletter is also required. Becoming a Premium subscriber prior to January 3rd will yield 500 Cartel Coins.

    The incentive of the character boost is nice. If I remember correctly you usually receive 500 Cartel Coins (CC) anyways with a month subscription so is this an additional 500 CCs as a bonus otherwise that really isn't any extra?

    No, I will not be a part of their insidious designs. What they hope to do with this is inflate the "sub" numbers then flog THAT number, not the # of actual subscribers as their "official" statistic.

    They are trying real hard to get people to try this. This incentive is on top of their "invite a friend" promo they doctored up last week for KotEE. Pushes like this always make me a bit nervous.

    Wait so do they give you a character boost for free? So what happens if you don't end of the trial are you locked out of that character?

    Makes me wonder if people are getting bored of spending cash on the pointless shit in the cartel store.

    "'Cause my monsters are real, and they're trained how to kill
    And there's no comin' back and they just laughed at how I feel
    And these monsters can fight, and they'll never say die
    And there's no goin' back, if I get trapped I'll never heal
    Yeah, my monsters are real"

    The story is really good.  It's worth a month of sub just to play through it.  As far as continuing to each their own.  I saw Rogue One on Friday and then got the itch to play again.  I played quite a bit this weekend on a new character.  There's a lot of "I quit" threads on the General Forums at SWToR.  The reason I mention this is that there's the possibility that the cancerous part of the community might have gone and quit.  My experience so far this weekend:  I did Hammer Station in a group.  We wiped 5-6 times.  No one rage quit.  No hollering in group chat.  We talked about strats, CC, etc.. and finished the instance.  It was really fun.  I also got a group together for a World Boss on Coruscant last night.  I got 18 people in about 15 mins.  We died, had a trail of run backs while the boss was still engaged, and downed it in one attempt.  No cursing, rage quits, etc.  Did one match of PVP (hutball) and one of the flying pvp (can't remember the name).  Both matches were very close with no crap talking by either side.  Again, maybe some of the baddies (by baddies I mean trolls and negative folks of course) decided to leave.  Even fleet chat has been good.  I have two folks on ignore for credit selling.  No confrontations in chat that I saw.  100 people on Republic side on the fleet yesterday afternoon.  It might be worth considering if you get the itch...

    Nope, not gonna pay an MMO with aggressive freemium design so I can experience single players stories.
    Curse you Bioware, we wanted KOTOR III, not this.
