Curious how it'll turn out with GW2 coming out the end of Aug. Seeing as you pay a one time fee, and you can access all the content at any time and play as much pvp as you want. Hopefully going FTP gets SW some more subscribers back after all the ones they've lost lately.

B2P with full access(GW2) vs F2P with limited access(SWTOR)

EA/Bioware should of went the B2P rather than the P2P route.

I wonder how long before Tera or Secret World goes F2P?

This is why Bioware should have done Knights of the Old Republic 3.

Sometime towards end of August I believe. Game will be $15 bucks in August and this is said to start by Fall 2012. So I am thinking in September/October this hits.

Is there a way to get this without downloading the atrocious EA Origins Software? I refuse to let that thing run on my computer.... Besides, I've heard TOR was pretty disappointing anyways...

1. TOR is a great game

2. yes you can use it without Origin if you buy the disc and install to HDD instead of activating through Origin.

You don't need Orgin to play the game. that being said, I actually like the system. It grows on you. Remember how much we all hated steam a few years back?

You like a memory hog?

Also I've been using Steam for almost 9 years now. Never have i hated it.
