I'm just a fan of a brand new wiki: pcgamingwiki.com
A one stop place to help you get your favorite PCGames not only running on your machine, fix issues you might have, find the latest patches from the developers or fans, and more.
It's a brand new site, so help out by contributing.
Doesn't mean so much that Swtor failed, F2P might actually do it good, provided they keep adding stuff to it. This rather means that subscription fee model is nearing its end, which I guess isn't all that bad from a player's perspective.
I saw some of the future and current legacy rewards then the thought popped in my head "some of these can really be in a f2p model." As long as it isn't pay to win I sure wouldn't mind saving some money every month.

But if this happens I will definitely pick it back up again and try and finish the stories of the character(s) I made and finally get back to exploring the Star Wars universe
"Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"
I'll grab it if it goes F2P.
I tried one of those "free weekend" things and I some-what enjoyed it. And these days I could use a proper RPG, heck I might even get used to the plastic-coated graphics.

I'm stoked!!! I don't play much of any mmo because I spend like less than 5 hours a week playing. I did their free weekend and 7 day free trial and I love this game. The stories are just so cool. I love the light and dark side experience too. I don't know, lvl 15 is pretty low as far as experiencing content in the grand scheme of things; but, I really enjoy those areas. I don't think I would call this game dead at all. It has a stronger playerbase than most of the mmo's out there, and bizzard did the exact same thing with wow when they were pressured with large titles adopting the f2p model. Yes, both of these titles put out way too much content to remain good and go free to play entirely; but at least they are giving something. I don't think we will ever see wow go free to play. Activision is just that way. I could see EA put swtor into the f2p; however, I think they would do that out of sheer desperation, which I would find unlikely in that franchise.
free to play, pay to play, rent to play, seriously......... who gives a flying fuck?
The game is really fun, I had fun playing it before, I have fun playing it now, and I'll still have fun playing it in the future.
If haters and doomsayers wanna use this news as an outlet to rave and mock others, go ahead. It wont make my game any less fun.
Por que odiar si amar es mas dulce? (*^_^*)
I got a 7-day pass from a friend...and I was actually really impressed by the leveling, although I'm sure it's a different story at max level. Still, it won't be all bad if this does indeed go F2P, given with all the lore and stories that go with the Star Wars universe. Tons of store item potential.
Side note: does anyone know when the F2P until level 15 kicks in?
Am I right?
¬.¬ ohh and BTW, this "kid" is actually 29. Even if I was just 9, I'm not the one spewing poison like a brat who wanna brag over something this stupid. Your own attitude lowers your image, not mine.

I would return for F2P SWTOR. Heck, they'll make more money F2P than subscription. I'd love to dust off the old sniper.
Sith Warrior, and Imperial Agent are probably the best stories
Rest In Peace, World of Warcraft. Subscriber count doesn't matter, WoW has been dead in spirit for a while
Rest In Peace, Star Wars the Old Republic. SWTOR is a fun RPG, but a bad MMO
And at least the GW2 crew is not fooling themselves. They know the exact same thing will happen. Keep a few thousand people playing their game, buying some stuff from their stores, and they`ll be happy. They clearly don`t want to be the best game out there, and they won`t.
And my attitude lowers my image? That`s funny. On a cool thread that everyone was giving their opinion and actually talking about reasons, you were the first one to come in here, post a completely useless post and use improper language. The image I got from you was that you were an idiot. Apparently I was right.
It's not going F2P (Yet nor has it been confirmed) this is simply an idea they are throwing around out there and one person's thoughts at that this man does not speak on behalf of EA.
However it's not surprising that the games former disgruntled players are seeking to use this to slander the game. This thread is basically troll bait and all it will accomplish is to bring in more disgruntled trolls which will most likely cancel any civility some people might wish to see.
I personally find it rather sad that people take pleasure in the possibility of this game going F2P at some point down the line, it's like EA broke into your house when you were young and planted clowns everywhere which resulted in you being scared for life and developing a hate towards EA.
The bandwagon is an exciting thing isn't it?
