  • Cool but why is it temporary? Just let free players get through Revan and level cap 60 for good. If they want to get to 70, pay to sub. Seems fair.

  • Fubarz

    K I want the money back I paid for it though

  • “To celebrate KOTOR” oh SHUT UP. *shuts down apeiron* “yay for kotor!”

    • Valis

      You do realize that EA had nothing to do with that?

      • The timing is still pretty poor.

      • lolipop

        Do you really belive that? Since 2012 they “spit” only two “retarded” battlefronts with star wars name on it, i am not mentioning swtor, since it’s an MMO game not a single player game (though one could argue about that now at this actuall state of a game). It was (pheh it still is i’d say) so dry, that fans had to take action… and yet Lucasfilm take action against them rougly after 2 years of working on it, why they couldn’t do it at the start? Someone must have show them that stuff, and instead support this and show fans that they care about “projects” of that magnitude… they probably said: “No no no… shut them down… We can’t compromise EA for not doing nothing, while fans are making such big project. That would be bad for EA *buisness* model, which makes tons of money for them and us” and yes… the only success they had with this brand are some idiots who keep supporting and buying their microtransaction bullshit… and this whole pains me as f…. because of that abomination of approach to games, look at previous years and now and compare what things we had and what we have now… this is sad, frustrating and insulting….

        • lolipop

          2 or more years… don’t know when this Apeiron started exactly, but it was either around 2014 or 2016…. nevermind…

    • Fubarz

      Yea Shadow of Revan is free………all this reminds me of is how much EA/BW screwed the launch of it when the players had to pay for it. Took a month off before trying to fix it and pissed of entire paying player base Nothing like great customer service # sarcasm#


      They shoulda “hired” them, saving a bunch of hours and costs in remaking the game, while allowing Disney and EA to rack in some dough by tacking a price tag on it.

    ‘Legend of the Old Republic’ event, live October 18 – 25.
    What event?.

    • That is the event for that mobile game, not swtor

  • Daniel Maxton

    BioWare and their “generous” free gifts. Fucking idiots. This crap, along with lvl 65 should’ve been made available for f2p and preferred at least 2 years ago. Whoever stands behind SWTOR’s monetization and distribution, I hope he dies of level 10 cancer. Jesus, sucking money for 2h DLC at best? Which is what? 3-4 years old, now? If they really wanted to celebrate KOTOR, they could’ve given shae vizla, nico okarr, hk weapons and extra episode to those who missed summer of 2016. Dumb cunts don’t even know what a gift means. This garbage isn’t a gift. It’s an insult. Although the best way to respect KOTOR would be to fix the fucking game. I mean, thank dog, they started making these QoL improvements, half of which are useless shit, and the other half should’ve been in the game since day 1. If they continue on this path, maybe, in 5 years, we’ll get the SWTOR everyone was dreaming about back when they started leaking art pictures, ~2008-2010.

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. The nerve they have. BioWare, the underachievers.

    • Jep Fareborn

      I still need Master Ranos 🙁 Or those D vs. L mounts 🙁

    • Nyh

      I find wishes like that repulsive but I must agree with the rest. We want ZOOM comp back.

  • Éamon McCraith

    Damn I feel so enticed to re-sub and play this shit again for the umpteenth time. Oh wait, if I sub I can play it anyway, nvm.

    • Fubarz

      All it reminds me of is how mad I was the way they screwed over the player’s that paid for early access to revan expac with still paying for talents while lvling ( never returning the credits to them) then make it free after everyone gained access. Or the way they went on vacation for a month just after launch not fixing the bugs till January

  • branky

    Shameless milking of an old cow on lifesupport…

    • Gonadius

      How DARE they give things away for free! They should be ashamed!

      • Shawn Hargrave

        yeah f2p people can chat with others now! lolz

  • Need2Crash

    I thought this stuff was already free, well maybe I think it free it you sub once after that you get to keep all the stuff that been released to that point, Either way eh, I have played the game in months, log just to see how dead servers have become

  • Fubarz
    • Ben Gimson

      Beats the fights in the sequel trilogy tbh

    • abaddonsmummy

      Wow that’s amazing.
      Is is choreographed or freestyle?

      • Fubarz

        Not sure

      • Rompe Himself

        Choreographed. If these guys were going freestyle, both of these guys left themselves flat and open on so many strikes, that the other had multiple chances to take the other out, including when the “sith” left his saber up to continuously block multiple strikes (30 sec mark), rather then move back and counterattack. Or the way they pre-emptively duck each other’s swings before the swing was made.

        Still, pleasant to watch all the same.



    A time before the game went completely downhill.
