And then you close with:
So as a sub instead of getting 6 week patches your getting 12 or 18 week patches. But hey the games getting patches right

1. Events are available to Free-to-play players (at a small cost) and Subscribers at no additional cost. Visit the Dree-to-play Features Chart for more information.
Now to break it down. Why separate F2P and Subs and not just say available to all.
Now why did they say for subs at no additional cost. By that wording there is a cost somewhere isnt there and so it must be to the F2P players.
Now why even mention the F2P chart for further information if this event is free for everyone.
2. Correct there were no charges for prior patches. Maybe I should log onto my account again and go into section X. I can right? (for free). In other words they will not charge for the patch but charge for you to access the area. Then probable charge again to equip the gear that you can get from there. (for F2P players).
How can you say you wouldnt be suprized if they charged for the rep system but then think the Ilum thing they wont? This is EA remember. Whats the quote. About ammo and BF?

Dont remember who said it though. Maybe you would know
It's kinda theatrically:
Person A: Did you just call me a racist?
Person B: Excuse me?
Person A: Yeah you just called me a racist didn't you.... hey guys... this one over here is calling me a racist.
Person B: I didn't say anythink like that... in fact I wasn't even speaking to you.
Person A: stfu u racist..
Joveth on the cartel outfit mixups:
In Game Update 1.7 (which should be going live in the next month or so), we are going to offer versions of the aforementioned outfits as they appeared before the 1.6.2 changes in addition to the current versions that appear in the Cartel Market Packs. Players will be able to obtain (via Cartel Packs) both the “Classic” (pre 1.6.2) versions of the outfits and the current versions (post 1.6.2).
One would normally assume that games make an attempt to make some progress with their models and improve upon existing ones rather than copy and provide even more restrictions.
Is this the patch when they make Commandos/Mercs viable in WZs? And not just leap magnets? Or is that coming in like patch 9.1?
Hopefully they will loose the restrictions for F2P and Prefered Player more and more though I think developer are too scared to less restrictions as this would mean that meaningfull quality content is getting even more important to make people subscribe.

And the only way to get BW to change something is to pitch an unholy shitstorm and complain till your eyes explode. That's what caused them to increase the number of action bars and character slots for preferred players, that's what caused them to increase the FP/WZ limit for free players, and that's what's causing them to continue loosening restrictions. Thoughtful feedback was provided on these things during testing, but it wasn't until they had an unholy shitstorm of complaints from the broader playerbase that they actually moved on it. That's not specific to BW though, complaints on that scale are the primary motivator for a lot of changes in games. Simply ignoring it won't change anything, and actively supporting it...yeah, that kinda reinforces poor behavior (which is why I still haven't spent money in the cash shop despite my desire to do so).
I'd love to see the restrictions loosened up more as well. Honestly, I think they can't figure out enough "value added" incentives for subscribers and a way to deliver them enough bang for their buck to loosen them up too much. Rather than the positive "value added" approach that games like TSW and Tera took for their subscription offers (two other games that have recently made/will make the transition), they took the EQ2 "value reduced" model for free players. In this day and age, I seriously question the wisdom of that decision and the competence of a developer that continues to take that approach with the current state of the market.
I'm hoping that 1.7 will be delivered, in its entirety, to free players as well as subscribers and will provide some awesome content (though I'm very skeptical at this point), because I'd really like to see the game move into a positive direction and generate some good-will outside of the hardcore fanbase.
I still find 1.7 the most F2P friendly patch. They give them some stuff to do without forcing them to subscibe or pay a week's ticket. BW has screwed this game really hard, I still love it but on the same time I lament for its lost potential.
Let's hope that it would get better while BW takes steps (even baby steps) on making it better
