So it took a little longer then I expected, but Star Wars: The Old Republic will be going Free to Play this fall, and looks to have a lot of the same system as STO and LOTRO with what you will be doing with. Here's the link:

HAHA and they said it'll be at least two years before that happens.

Man, I'm so glad I didn't waste those 200 shekels on 60 days of gametime

w00t w00t!

I might actually play it again if it happens. Didn't take long though....

It is indeed, I look forward to playing again. Just glad I found this news before I went to go buy a time card. Think I can hold out a couple more months.

Though as I said, this happened a bit later then I expected. When they announced free up to level 15, back in May or June, I figured by July, or August we'd have the full free to play. lol.

Called it. XD

Good news: I don't have to buy the damn game to play with Petra now.
Bad news: All of the people who paid their asses off to play this game are going to whine like it's going out of style.

Eh, they'll get over it Razelle. I only ever paid for the game and a time card once for it myself, so I'm rather indifferent.

Though in other news with it, its slated for November. So time to wait and see a final date.

But the bottom line is; it's taken less than the 2 years they said it'd take at minimum. Yay!

It's only taken 8 months.

I think they let the beta go wide so a lot of people had played most of it before it was even released.

I paid $150 for the collector's edition pre-order and stopped playing the game after a month. I didn't even have a huge issue with the gameplay but the servers were garbage. I didn't run, I skipped due to framerate issues.

I'm pretty sure the server issue's been fixed; I know enough people that play but haven't heard any server complaints in months  if not longer. I'm still waiting for the f2p to start
