SWTOR Pets from other EA F2P games

EA is doing a cross promotion right now and offering SWTOR pets for players of other Free to Play games managed by EA. There are 5 pets currently and the claim offer expires on April 1.

At the moment the pet is only eligible for new players (i..e non-subscribers) but Bioware will make them accessible to subscribers in the future,

A. In order to get the pet you will have to have received the email mentioning the pet promotion. Then you would need to create a new SWTOR account with that email address. That account will then, at a later date, receive the pet.

B. At this moment subscribers cannot get the items, no. This was intended as a cross-promotion to other EA free-2-play games. However, I can tell you that subscribers will have access to these items in the future. We are still working out both the when and the how. I will share any details as I get them.

Hope that answers your questions!

When signing up for these free to play games, I would suggest to use your email associated with your SWTOR account in case these pets are bound. All the pets are reskins of the battle droid pets.

    I haven’t played these other games before. I’ll try creating new accounts and see if I can get the pets.

    I’m trying Lord of Ultima. http://www.lordofultima.com/ref/2266488074

    • vfm

      Any ideas how long it takes to get the email? I’m playing Lords of ultime for half a day – far beyond “log in and play” – and didn’t get anything.
      PS.
      Games would need your EA Origin accound, and SWTOR is linked to this, so basically, your password will be SWTOR password.

      • enderandrew

        I started 4 out of the 5 yesterday. I haven’t received any emails, but my understanding is that the email states so long as you are playing SWTOR (along with these other games) by April 1st, you should get the pets.

        • vfm

          unless it’s april fools :P

            If it is a joke – its in very poor taste…

            I’ve dropped tweets & emails to EA and Bioware so may get an answer soon

    • vfm

      PS. Lord of Ultima is 100% pay-to-win. Pay to get additional resources, money, fasbuilding, better queue, pay for everything. I never saw such pay-to-win game before.

      • enderandrew

        I’m trying all 5 to hopefully get all the pets. I don’t know if I will continue to play any of these.

        As a long time fan of the single player Ultima games, it is a bit of a shame to see what happened to the Ultima name since EA bought it.

        For those who don’t know, Richard Garriot (creator of Ultima) has a Kickstarter for a spiritual successor right now.

    It’s that asterisk on the 2nd line that’s got me thinking this may be just for new account creations…

    Either way I’ll try out the 5 games and hope for the best…

    Here is what the * points to at the bottom of the email, I converted it to lower case to make it easier on the eyes, was in all caps before:

      To me, it sounds more like if you use the same email address for both games then you will get the pet, so if you have played those games at all and play SWTOR you’ll get something in an email.

      I haven’t played Battlefield P4F since it came out and I got an email. Unfortunately I don’t use the same email address for both games but I’m just going to log into my SWTOR account before the 1st and change it to match the one Battlefield uses, just till after the 5th to see if I get anything.

    Is it known if you actually have to play the games or just sign up?

    • enderandrew

      I’ve seen people say that they got the emails even if they were inactive and never played the other F2P games much. But Bioware said today you need to have received the email to qualify for the promotion. Sadly, I created accounts on the 5 F2P games, but as a subscriber, I guess I won’t be receiving anything.

      • defector k

        stupid things happens, i play NFSW from its release and didnt get any mail. what can i say, this is EA

  • http://therevelalliance.enjin.com/home Zahariel

    I get the sinking feeling that it’ll all come down to submitting tickets after April 5th and whether you get a friendly CS or not!!

    • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

      I think we will know more by Monday as well – maybe get an official Bioware response

  • http://twitter.com/LiL_BrOwNiE247 Steve Stevenson

    Does anyone know if you have to be a subscriber in order to get the pets? Currently I don’t have much time to play anymore but I have played all 5 games and was a subscriber at one point (preferred now).

  • Niles

    With all EA stuff I’m going to bet that this is going to be only new account things. Trying to lure in new costumers to play the game so they continue boosting their profits. It was how EA did things when they took over Ultima Online. I’ve actually had accounts for most of those games listed except for the battle field ones back during the beta versions and I’m doubting I’m going to get a pet. But Bioware has screwed up before on me. I did get the refer a friend speeder without having a refer a friend on my account.

    • http://therevelalliance.enjin.com/home Zahariel

      I was wondering how Bioware were going to enforce this… They don’t have access to the Origin accounts or the other games. Here’s hoping that Origin will just check who’s got active accounts in the games and forward those to Bioware…

      • vfm

        I didn’t remember my password to Origin account, and reset it (it was on the same email as SWTOR), After resetting it, i found my new Origin password is also my new SWTOR password. It is connected now.

    • Konoha the Wiper

      you got the speeder too i thought it was some glitch that i was keeping quiet about lol

  • Marco

    From the dev tracker:

    At this moment subscribers cannot get the items, no. This was intended as a cross-promotion to other EA free-2-play games. However, I can tell you that subscribers will have access to these items in the future. We are still working out both the when and the how. I will share any details as I get them.

    • vfm

      BOOOO! Burn them! *pulls out the torch and pitchfork*

      • DaGhostDS

        i agree this is dumb, way to piss on your current players/subscribers even more..
        “We are still working out both the when and the how” That just mean we have no plan yet, its on the wall of crazy with everything awesome.

        • vfm

          They are talking BS, they never planed to release them to subsribers, just said that now to prevent sh*ststorm of rage.

    • enderandrew

      The pets are a minor deal, but Bioware’s constant poor CS and mistreatment of their paying customers is sadly systemic.

    So looks like currents accounts won’t be getting these at the moment but they are looking at ways of getting them to us in the future… Kinda feels like what you mum would say to appease you though, the old “I’ll see” approach

      That is gained by buying a 2400 cartel coin card in Europe. It is not available in the US.

      In the US, Gamestop and Best Buy are also selling 2400 cartel coin cards that have exclusive pets.

      I’d be willing to purchase an extra Gamestop or Best Buy card and swap with someone in Europe to a code to the European card.

      • http://www.facebook.com/THEONEANDONLYTMAN Carsten Thienemann

        Hi T.J. Brumfield,

        I would love to get the US cards from gamestop and bestbuy. Unfortunately I can’t order them online from their website. I can buy one card for you in Germany.

        If you are interested in sharing these cards, please get in contact with me via skype (EssiXr3i) or swtor forums (nickname: tman_ac)

        Thanks!

        • http://dulfy.net/ Dulfy

          I would be interested in exchange you for a Euro card as well once the US cards come out :)

          • Mauduin

            I work at Gamestop here in Colorado. Let me know if we can work anything out.

            • http://therevelalliance.enjin.com/home Zahariel

              Any chance you can confirm i these codes will ever be available on the Gamestop website or are they only available in store… If so then I’ll have to pick up a 3rd code as I only got a spare one for the best but version…

            • http://www.facebook.com/andrew.uriarte.12 Andrew Uriarte

              LOVE U MAUD

      This is from the European Cartel coin card available form Amazon.de

    I dont know what went wrong with the Pet handling system but I got one of those even though I am a subscriber. I got a one month sub on the 21st of March and got the J9-BH in my mailbox 3 days ago. I wish they gave me the CnC one since im a huge fan of the series but oh well…

    first pic is the pet, second is the mail i got in-game which contained the pet.

    p.s. i never got an email from bioware stating that i am qualified for a pet or something.

    so i say that they cannot give subscribers the pets is bs since i got one just fine.

  • Switzy

    I am more than interested to get a cartell coin card with pet for SWTOR from Gamestop. Many thanks for offering! I can paypal the money, in case that works for you. You can maybe send a scan of the code via email? In case you are interested, can I pass on your contact information? I know several players in EU would love to get such a code from Gamestop (and BestBuy as well, for that matter).
