    Yes, just logged in to check things and my account says 2/6 characters on server. I'm a preferred player that joined when the game went f2p, not a former sub.

    Odd thing: the last patch somehow pulled all my account wide unlock items that I've been holding from my cargo hold and put them in my characters' inventories. I'm not sure if this means BW/EA fixed them or what??

    Cool. I might finally drop the cash to get preferred then. I'll hate myself for it, but I'm seriously considering it now.

    Good changes to Section X. Hopefully that nightmare place is actually playable now.

    personally i never had any issues with section X. most mobs were far enough apart that i could blast by them with no issues in getting to my next Objective but meh.

    and im glad that BW is starting to be somewhat nice to there former and pref players it will mean more players for the Que pools and that can only lead to more grps and more fun.

    hope they keep this trend up

    I'm pure F2P, apparently it has stabilized now and only 2 characters playable, a temporary bug of some kind; This is actually a relief I will finally be rid of excessive alts, previously having massive problems deciding if to level a commando or mercenary, marauder or juggernaut, or all of them; These questions exist no longer. Now it's just sorcerer and sniper outright as I wanted from the beginning, hopefully those character slot unlocks remain expensive so I won't get at them.

    Alt'ing is something best kept largely unsatisfied as it consumes you wholly.

    These are not the alts you are looking for *waves hand* Go to anoooother game. *spooky ghost voice*

    Totally kidding, but I'm sure most people who actually post here know that. I have to have tons of alts in SWTOR because they are all so unique.

Please be sure to check your cartel ledger to confirm that your coins, in fact, did not return automatically. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    /facepalm

    I've given this forum enough negativity, but what the fuck? Why does this happen every other day? What happens if the people with missing items happen to be preferred? I guess they are just screwed.

    Yea... actually Harbinger has had more problems than most servers. It seems like every patch they get bjorked somehow. And yea this would be an example of why no CS for F2P/Preferred people is a bad plan.

    Oh wow...welcome to the party. I guess you missed all the angry people raging about their accounts being bass ackwards and only being able to email a robot with no resolution, ever.

    They can't post in forums, can't open tickets, can only email a robot basically or sit on hold for hours basically. Most of these people have reported not being able to find help for any issue they have.

    Disgusting. I know personally how bad TOR's CS is but I had no idea F2P'ers got it even worse. The CS and the Community department are the 2 worst parts of TOR for me. I've raged against them since June 2011 and my first Beta experience.

    Yea... it's easily the absolute worst choice they have made with this whole thing. I don't understand it at all. I mean that there says to me the model is not sustainable.

    Yeah. It's why we've been trying to warn people not to purchase or use unlocks since they are just disappearing and they have no way to get it resolved. It's basically fraud, since they are taking people's money and not giving them the promised service of the unlock. Then they have no way to get their money back.

    To hear that this issue has now wiped a whole server is absolutely atrocious.

    No in-game CS. I think you can still get it via the site itself, and I know you can get phone support.

    It's the same thing SoE does with Vanguard (Free players only get support for billing issues, nothing for in-game/account issues) and it's equally terrible there.

    It's not great from what I've heard, especially if you let slip that you're a free player early on, but it's better than nothing : )

    This is the equivalent of E-mail, so yes. Not really better, especially since consumer reports (lol) mention that it doesn't solve their problems.
