This is weird for a AAA mmo. Are they padding subscription numbers for financial reports? Or maybe they're just delusional or desperate and think that the 1.2 patch with keep players... It won't, the game is stale, boring, uninspired, and worst of all it's terribly coded DX9 engine lags on just about every computer for some incomprehensible reason. I can't fathom how they spent 150 million dollars (+) on it.

No, it's really not.

Rift has set the standard in free months/etc...I as a founder get a free month every major patch...

WoW did it with Vanilla ~ Then again vanilla was so terrible that they had to get back half the sub-base.

It's commonplace now for free time when a mistake is made and they didn't roll out something major that they had promised to the community...

So, they threw in a free month.

That doesn't make them as desperate as everyone seems to want them to be...It does make them incredibly business savvy...Just sayin.

Wow, people bash a game they have A) Never played before B) They are too scared to leave World of Warcrap C) They just dont like Star Wars I admit, the game is not 100% polished, and it has its flaws, but so did World of Warcrap upon its release. It took Blizzard almost 2 years to get a decent MMO out, then they trashed it years later. Atleast SWTOR has a chance too, many people play, many people hate it, but it is a good game, especially for a fan of Star Wars, and MMO's in general.

Why try to ruin someones day with unintelligent remarks?

All they need to do now is:
1) Introduce cross server PVP
2) More warzones/battlefronts/pvp mini-games whatever they were called
3) Less huttball.

Any reliable source on figures like these? I'd actually be interested to see actual subscription numbers instead of the usual thread-bashing.
