First off i wish to thank everyone that regularly checks these forums and the member base of CotP.
Now, into the meat and potatoes. EA did announce they will be moving to the free to play hybrid model in November. With this they are added several perks to those of us that are full suscribers, and rewarding those that have been monthly subscribers that scales with your subscription time and if you bought a collectors edition.

For those of you that have friends that were leary to try the game then August will be the best time to convince them to try it. Bioware will be marking the game down to $14.99 and give them the 1 month free full subsription. Now if they coose to carry on with the F2P option instead of shelling out the 15 bucks a months, or more depending what country your in, then please be aware that they are going to have limited access to many features of the game, and operations are blocked completely.

Lastly the claim is that Bioware will be able to put out more content faster this fall, just like they said in May when 1.3 came out. Where is 1.4 already! It's still listed as "Coming Soon".
In closing keep in mind that our recruit efforts are not going to be restricted to subribers only. We will continue to recruit in game until the servers shut down and all are welcome, regardless of how they are playing the game.
