I downloaded the game today. And tried it out for five minutes.

I'm thinking about taking a break from SWTOR soon and might play this for a few days instead. It does look like fun

A few questions though: Is there just one F2P server? I didn't see an option to pick one. If so, is it separate from the premium people? From what I gather most of you still have pay accounts.

And is the CS mostly content, or vanity? PWE games have been the latter, but I know the current trend is going towards the former. If it is content, how far can you get before having to start paying? I do have some PWE currency left over from PWI and FW, does anyone know if it transfers? In both of those games it was called Zen, but here it's not obviously.
You can play without ever paying a dime. Some items give you an edge, but if you really want, you can collect in game currency to trade in for C-Store points to pay for them.
There is only one server, if you don't count the test shard.
Teh rest is a single server heavy instance game.
Which is why it was so easy to get our fleet set up since you don't have to juggle who is where.
