Attentive readers will have noticed I’ve been keeping somewhat quiet about my MMO playing for a while now. It’s not because I haven’t been playing MMOs, in fact I’ve been playing quite some WoW but rather it’s been because I’ve been having trouble figuring out exactly my thoughts about Swtor F2P details.
As I said before, I’m not a fan and I think Bioware is shooting itself in the foot long-term but I struggled with expressing the why. Luckily, ControlBlue, a commenter on Darth Hater, expressed it in simple terms for me.

Well said my friend. I think this sums up nicely my issue with swtor F2P. Why make the player experience miserable until they pay? Why….

Although it’s tempting to go into speculations as to why exactly Bioware made things this way, either sheer stupidity or greed or plain evil… they are doing it. I do believe short-term it will bring about a revival of sorts and an influx of cash but the core issues will not be solved.
So there’s my thoughts on Swtor F2P. I just don’t understand the strategy anymore…
