Not so. It went F2P due to a drop in subscribers, but they still had enough to remain in substantial profit.

Hmm, very well then. Then again I can't win here anyways. Either Kotick was right or EA was right, and I don't like either option :evil:

Kotick should say which IP Activision made a profit on that wasn't call of duty or WoW, bet they can't :D

Agreed. Never used to mind EA but they are getting worse and worse.

I seriously don't understand how EA dropped the ball that badly. I always expect day 1 server problems, especially from EA, but an online only game that was unplayable for the majority of players because of low server space? Thats a new low even for them.

I do like some EA games, but lately they have decided to go back to the company they where in the 90's aka wankers

I've been hearing a lot of rumours lately about an HD remake of KOTOR 1 and 2. Not sure if this is true though, I couldn't find any convincing evidence anywhere

Interesting article that briefly mentions SWTOR as being pay to win http://www.gamesradar.com/free-play-still-pay-win/

With all the recent changes SWTOR has had, I'm not surprised people are now calling it shitty.
