Star Wars: The Old Republic has gained 2 million new accounts since going free-to-play, according to the latest State of the Game letter from executive producer Jeff Hickman. He also said that “thousands of new players jumping in every single day,” and the MMO’s “high capacity servers are teeming with people.” This spring, the game’s Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion will launch, and a new customization feature giving players more options to change their character’s appearance using Cartel Coins will be released for the MMO sometime this summer.

    Having jumped back in to see what all the fuss was about, its clear that the game finally moved forward in some areas and stayed the same in others.

    What is alarming that the Cartel packs are nothing but a waste of money, as the items you get are sold on the GTN – then its a race to who can sell it the cheapest, devaluing items at an alarming rate.

    Is the game worth £9 a month? Nope. Not enough has been done to warrant that and I am sure it wont be long before the game goes full free to play with EA’s typical nickle and dime approach to MTs
