    Box sales.

    That makes sense. I wish they would allow PvP though.

    So I waited for a long time to try out SWTOR, but now I can't make a free trial account? It keeps saying "Create SWTOR password: field is required." even when I enter one

    Tried it both in Firefox and IE, on 2 different machines... what gives?

    EDIT: Found it eventually on a dutch forum. Your pass needs at leats 1 capital letter, 1 small letter and 1 number..... nice of them to mention specific requirements, hope this helps someone.

    Hit submit anyway. A friend had that problem. Once your PW meets the requirements it'll go through.

    Hmm, I tried logging in but it says I don't have an active subscription. Which is true ofcourse.

    Do I need to do something in order to be able to play during the free week?

    If you are an ex subscriber there are requirements you have to meet to get the free week.

    If you are new player, make an account and you should have access to the first 15 level.s

    I basically decided today that I won't be paying any monthly fees for MMO's any more. I don't mind them charging for expansions and for the game up front (GW2 model). But this whole milk the client for every cent type of model is crazy. Especially because they still charge you for the expansions. I will try out SWTOR to see what it's like but definitely not go the full route.

    While it is likely, we don't really know if they will actually end up charging for expansions.

I really wish that it wasn't so big as that can be a brick wall to some wanting to get in to the game. The only positive when compared to before is that the downloading of the game doesn't cut in to your free weekend or seven day friends trial anymore.
    This has always been a very very very silly point to me. Have people actually checked to see how big their WoW download is? Before Dragon Soul my WoW was sitting around 20G. SWTOR is not that much larger.

    In case no one else has mentioned this yet, I got an email yesterday saying they are giving a free week for past subscribers. So even if the free to fifteen is now active, you can play your higher level toons for a week.

    In do understand that, but there are a couple of differences that give the WoW client the edge:

    1. The initial download is smaller - While it certainly ends up being large in the end, the initial download of the client isn't nearly as large as TOR.
    2. Streaming client - People are able to play areas of the game prior to full download. I never even bothered with this when I was playing though.
    3. The client has been on systems for a LONG time - People have had their WoW folders sitting on their systems for years. They don't have to think about how large it is anymore while the size of a new client download sticks out like a sore thumb.

    The size of the TOR client has never been an issue for me personally. I have just seen that issue brought up on more than a few ocassions.

    Shush. I imagine some people are looking for a chance at getting the Zeppelin Chair.

    From the FAQ:

    If I previously played The Old Republic via the Friends of Star Wars: The Old Republic Trial or Weekend Pass Trial, will I be able to participate in the Free Trial?
    Yes, players who have participated in previous trial programs are eligible to participate in the Free Trial. Please note that there is a limit of one Free Trial per account.

    The client says otherwise when I log in, with no active subscription message and the play button disabled.

    ---------- Post added 2012-07-12 at 06:34 AM ----------

    Still "no active subscription" message and the play button is disabled.

    There is a link in "activate your account" message, follow it to your account management section and press a button there.
