SWTOR Free to Play: November 15th -planK - Nov 11 01:28pm

Just wanted to remind everyone that SWTOR is going free to play on the 15th. They're also launching a premium store that lets you buy things with "cartel coins" - if you were subscribed before, or still play, you'll get a bunch of these to spend.

So, if you didn't check out SWTOR when it launched, it's worth a look. Our guilds are on The Red Eclipse and Jedi Covenant servers.

i know how to attract more players to my mmo. let them play for free as 2nd class citizens.

would i be able to run fast if i don't pay?
I know sprint has some restrictions. It may require some sort of money purchase in order to unlock... not that it costs money by itself, just that paying some money bumps you up to Preferred status, which is slightly better than free. It could be that this status gives you sprint at level 1, while otherwise, you'd need to wait until a later level to train it.
from what i've gathered (which i easily could have misread, but i believe is true) is that they're basically setting it back to how it was when the game launched - you didn't get sprint until you were level 15 or so. subscription members get to have it right off the bat, where f2p players are essentially in the same boat as all of us were for the first couple months of the game.

The chart is very important. If you intend to do endgame as a F2P player, it will not be viable. If you want to try out the game and play through quest content such as your class story, then you will be able to as a free player.
