He does make a good point about the Cartel though. It's exactly the kind of thing that Cryptic did with STO, and I can see the aversion to it and the fear that EA would overdo it. I still think though that SWTOR, despite the limitations for FTPers, is a pretty good game, and one that anyone can fully enjoy. The restrictions aren't terribly bad and are understandable under the context. Well, the restrictions on the forums or any of the social aspect do bother me though.
