The lights are on
If you've been holding off of playing the MMO, now might be the time to jump in for free.
The Old Republic goes free on November 15, although if you're already a paying member, you'll get all of the complimentary Cartel coins for use in the microtransaction shop based on your playing time (check out the Cartel Coin Ledger page to see how many coins you've earned), as well as a free lump sum of 250 coins. Lapsed players who used to pay for the game can also get back in and receive coins for their prior work if they join before December 20, 2012.
For more info on the transition, check out this info from the summer.

That's pretty cool! Maybe I'll try it out around December, with the WiiU coming out and all I'm a little stacked right now.
I might give it a try after I finish up my thief in GW2, which may be like a year with the spare time I have now lol
Who cares about the old republic?! Bring on GTAV!!
well, I know when to get a computer that can run this. I've been dying to play this since launch, but couldn't run it. Now I can...
Cool! I've been replaying KotOR the last few days, so I should be ready for this.
I'll probably log in a few days after that and then play around with it in December when I become less unglued to Persona 4 Golden.
The fact that the game is incredibly average should probably be mentioned. Along with everyone else, I only have a limited amount of time I can dedicate to gaming and with that 'time' I will want to spend it on quality games not particulary 'free' games. I'm sorry but Star Wars The Old Republic just isn't a quality game in relation to other titles that have been released or are soon to be released. Hello GTA V.
...And still there since day 3 of launch. I am fine, and both the servers and content have improved. Since I am a subscriber going to end up with loads of cartel coins, I'm gonna focus on HK and get rocket boost.
I'll probably hop on and finish my main's character story. That's about it.
