Free To Play. This is a good move! I wonder if the purchase by Disney of Star Wars, has anything to do with this.

this was announced way before disney bought the rights to star wars.

It's less of a good move and more of a desperation move. F2P games and P2P games are built around entirely different models, and making the switch is basically an admission of failure. Right now, they're doing exactly what STO did--trying to recoup their losses as best they can.

TOR did fail that's why it's going F2P

"Free To Play. This is a good move!"

-No sprint and limited quickbar and death.

Sure it sounds like a good move...

Don't forget Disney sees the real value in Star Wars. When they make Episode 7, 8, and 9 their aim will be to capture OT gold cash in. So we could see SW Galaxies 2 come out around then with maybe Star Wars: Knights of the New Republic! :P

Oh God I hope so.

I'LL SACRIFICE THOUSAND GOATS FOR THAT TO HAPPEN!

Also if it's going to happen, I hope they give KOTOR 3 to Obsidian rather than Biosh*t. Galaxies can be made by any other decent dev out there too as long as it's not Biosh*t or Sony Online whom are the sole reason why Galaxies went to total sh*t towards the end.

SWTOR was built going F2P before it was ever released. I read a story several years ago that Bioware had a backup plan if the P2P model didn't work. I think the only thing that shocked them was the time of how quick it went F2P.
