Star Wars: The Old Republic F2P Next Month

BioWare's Dr. Ray Muzyka took to the stage at E3 to announce plans for Star Wars: the Old Republic, their Star Wars MMORPG. He unveils plans to add more PvP warzones, more challenging group- and higher-level content (including a new version of hardcore mode), new companion characters, player-requested features, and more to the game over the coming year. He caps things off by announcing plans for limited free-to-play support, saying beginning in July, everyone will be able to play the game up to level 15 for free.

That's the problem, even if they player base surges, those who are higher then 15 (more like the 30-40 range like my character) are still in empty zones without enough people to do all the damn heroics that are filling up more then half of my quest journal.

Just phuck the heroics. They may yield decent XP but in the time spent looking for a group you will make 2x the amount of XP doing regular quests.


The thing is I REALLY do enjoy the content in TOR, and I really do want to experience all of it. The problem is when you have a limit of 25 quests, and 15 or more are Heroics, it's a problem.
Same thing with the Task Forces. I would love to do The Jedi Prisoner, but getting people who want to do it on regular difficulty is damn near impossible.
