^I was planning to drop a bunch of money on FTP launch day to unlock all the restrictions. Now EA isn't gonna get a dime from me. The best part of the game is the story missions anyway. If there's no viable endgame without a sub then I will finish getting all 8 classes to the cap and leave. There are plenty of FTP games I can go to for PVP, crafting, instances, etc.
There is one other thing that bothers me. When most games go FTP, they throw a bone to ex subscribers. Usually this is in the form of letting people keep some of the things new players will have to pay for. TOR doesn't seem to be doing this at all. They're just giving people a few cartel coins for every month subbed.
