Meh I got four chars to 50 and I do not plan on going back as the restrictions are horrible. 3 war zones per week unless you buy a pass is kinda retarded along with other restrictions.
Why the fuck would you WANT to do more than 3 WZ per week, PVP in TOR is easily the worst part of it.
I'm Empire side on the Ebon Hawk with a level 50 Sith Warrior and a level 30something Bounty Hunter which is the most populated RP server at the moment if memory serves. I think Zombiehunta was going to join up when F2P happened and I know Tom was thinking about it also. The F2P restrictions are ridiculous because EA cannot into success but it's something like $5 to get most of them lifted and the stories are all pretty good.
It's a pretty standard MMO, not really sure why there is so much hate surrounding it other than EA's initial hubris about how it was going to bury WoW in a month. Sure it wasn't the crazy awesome brand new MMO defining etc. etc. but it's far from bad.
