The F2P patch is now on the test realm, and looks close to release. If you debated this game before, try it after the F2P change. Free! Why not?

Now free. If you're a fan of the Knight of the Old Republic RPG games, then get this free game. I'll be the closest thing to KOTOR 3. If you like the story, and hate playing with other people, pick it up. You have to pay to get access to most party things, so pick it up as an online single-player RPG

Got back into this. Justler, Ullom, Nickabsinthe, Oglupin and I started again since it's free to play.
If you played it in the past and hated it, try it again. It's changed and upgraded. Justler didn't like the free trial, but now says it's fun.
Give it a shot

Basically it is the most restrictive free to play MMO ever.

Yet, I'm playing it.

Yea, but it lets you pay for only what you want. No need to pay $15 when the only thing you care about is $5

You can also buy most of the unlocks with in-game currency.
I buy cartel coind with $, I buy the unlock item with cartel coins, I sell you the item for in-game currency.

There's almost every item available on the player market. Some are absurdly expensive, but some are cheap. So, you can still get most of the unlocks without dolla dolla billz

SWG did space as their first expansion too. We don't innovate, we integrate.

Preferred is if you've spent any money on the game. Either by buying the original box, or buying some cartel coins. I think the smallest cartel coin purchase is $5 and that will get you preferred status for life.
