    Guess what I just bought off the GTN

    Two artifact authorizations for 350k each. (normally, 1200 cartel coins)
    The system works. The free market has spoken.
    You can play f2p without spending a dime. Or a nickle.

    Lv60 (Neverwinter) - Rogue - Fighter - Wizard - Guardian - Cleric -

    Very cool. With luck the prices on those unlocks will stay under 350k.

    It's not really luck, though. People want to make money. If they are selling something above what a population can afford they will have to lower their price.

    Selling a 500 dollar tablet in the congo won't work.

    You're right. I forgot that the credit limit is 350k so charging over that is nonsensical.

    So basically, you can do your black hole dailies 5 days a week, purchase a pvp pass. Pvp for free. For ever.

    Might just be a question of time till EA decides the system doesn't work well enough for them. I really hope I'm wrong though. Already grouped up with a few of the f2p guys and they are people too .

    I was on belsavis and watched a guy call all f2pers poor, lazy, and a bunch of homophobic slurs.

    Really was disturbing. The community might drive away new players at this rate.

    It seems that some of them were really enjoying sharing the fleet with only 5 dudes during prime time.

    That's actually a good point. The lack of transfers might have culled the community of social people. 3 months of 10 people per fleet would do that.

    Lulz, I forgot all about the aspect of being able to sell that stuff on the GTN.

    I got all excited and blew my starting Cartel Coins on the random packs. I think I have some of the moddable dancer clothes in my bag though...

    I really hope you can reach max level as a f2p player though :|

    I'm guessing I'd have to level with an exp buff active all the time and do every quest to have a chance.

    There's like 10 bonus series and all of Ilum that you never have to do to hit 50.

    So I figure f2pers will get to experience those.

    You can, me and my friend have made it to Nar shadaa so far and shes 23(shadaa is level 21Q's) and im 24 (shes free and im not) and shes well within the level range of the quests, we've done all the quests and bonus series up to the end of Balmorra.

    As long as you do your weekly allowances of flashpoints and space missions and do the bonus questlines at the end of the planets you'll level fine

    the quests provided on the planets, without even doing the daily group quests will be sufficent enough to get to the next planet without being below the formentioned levels! Also you can list yourself for some warzones and flashpoints to get even more exp!

    Maybe I don't understand what you're talking about, but isn't the f2p limit 200k?

    I think they are smart, but think everyone else is stupid. The people listing for millions are because of two things:

    1) They don't understand F2P mechanics b/c they are a subscriber and have always been, so they don't know about the credit cap

    2) They are trying to lure gullible suibscribers planning on leaving into wasting all their credits since they won't need them anyways.

    I guarantee you that some people will have success with #2...just not from me.

    Well I could understand putting it at 1 million for example, in your #2 scenario. But 40 million? Come on now.
