I've made a couple billion credits, which is probably still not that much, but looking at the stuff I want to buy it's been hella amazing.

    I funded all character unlocks for my leveling character, bought every house and expansion in the game, etc. and that didn't even dent the 5% credits I kept on that character and the rest went to my legacy storage. I'm always poor in WoW, so I feel like a self-made king. And to be honest, this game has always been under-the-radar amazing. I haven't raided since it first launched and the first xpac, but all the leveling, event, and social content is just great.

    I went on a tear playing every MMO the first time wow went in the garbage, but I've been stuck as a world '1000th' raider grinding mythic since BFA. Now that it's gotten this bad again, I finally broke away and I'm back to playing all these MMOs and jesus they are fun. GW2 xpac coming, SWTOR xpac....new arpgs releasing, steam backlog.

    Ah the life of breaking those blizz chains.

    From just subscribing -- plus (it's been a while, so I don't remember for sure) the quests that award the major xp buffs/class buffs, etc can't be selected as rewards if you aren't subbed. I think you just get credits otherwise.

    Which gets annoying AF because of the credit cap.

    I'm playing as preferred right now and am at the credit cap. Every quest turn in, every enemy looted, every opened reward that has credits splashes the stupid "you're at the credit cap, XXX credits have been placed in escrow" message in my chat.

    SW:ToR is the most annoying F2P game in this respect because unless you're subbed you get these annoying messages from different sources. The two most obnoxious and flagrantly "you're not a sub so you're not good enough" are this credit cap escrow one and the big red one that splashes on your screen when you enter a rest area, that literally says you're not getting rested xp because you're not a subscriber.

    With that said, it's still a great game, but these messages and the restrictions are annoying AF.

    oh. those. I thought you were refering to occasional double xp they do, xp boosts from quest rewards are regular thing, that's why i was confused (especially since these boosts and double xp - stack)

    that said... if you have legacy bank unlocked? just dump excess credits into it before you reach 1 mil. I tend to deposit the moment I go above 500k which has an added benefit of stopping those very annoying "you are very close to hitting your credit limit" messages. now it may also have a cap for all I know, but at 280k mil I haven't hit it yet.

    Yeah it's weird....the model is pretty fine. For it's time, it is quite generous and was never really a giant problem since you could buy your way out of some stuff. Not quite as flexible as LotRO, but wasn't immediately a reason to stop playing. That being said, the way it makes the warnings trigger is fucking obnoxious.

    I find LotRO worse in many ways.

    Being completely locked out of entire zones, that the game directs you to, with few alternatives unless you know your way around is seriously messed up. Their model is more predatory IMO.

    SW:ToR is just annoying you with the messages and stupid lockouts, but you can at least play the entire game without being locked out of the content.

    Finally hopped onto the PTR, new menus and stuff really are insanely slick. Definitely going to grab people better than the old ones.

    Hoping the low level pvp bracket is active again after this. I always enjoyed it a lot with the lack of gear being a big thing. Though hopefully gutting people's individual survivability will make max-level versions more fun again. People had way too much survivability in a game with healing and guard.

    March isn't any better, both months are fairly brutal in terms of major releases. There's not a ton of MMO competition for them at least from what I know.

    Don't really see much big in march, i mean you have tiny tina's, elex 2, but what else is really that big?

    Even if I missed something, there's like 2 major mmo launches in Feb. besides swtor.
