Confusion about cartel coins
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2012, 2:34 am
Star Wars: The Old Republic is going Free2Play tomorrow. And the transition is causing some confusion. As the game had been designed with one business model in mind, switching to another isn't evident. And Bioware had announced things they then retracted, added to the confusion. Now Syp from Bio Break is claiming that "If you’ve been thinking about going back and are anticipating getting some of the new store currency that BioWare’s promised, it’s important to note that you’re not getting Cartel Coin one unless you’re subscribed at the point of F2P launch".

I do not think this is true. The reason why I think this isn't true is that I am not subscribed to SWTOR now, but Bioware sent me a mail telling me that I had Cartel Coins. Logging into the official SWTOR site and checking my account even shows 300 Cartel Coins. Apparently I got 150 Cartel Coins twice for having subscribed for 60 days via a game card after the free month. I do think you would get *more* Cartel Coins if you were subscribed at the point of F2P launch, but I don't think Bioware will take my 300 Cartel Coins away tomorrow.
