To save some screaming and yelling, yes I know this should be in the TOR forums and not general. The topic really needed to be a poll and as far as I can tell you can't make poll threads in game specific forums for some reason. So I made it here and hope the mods can move it over after.

As the title suggests, I was just curious what subscription plan everyone else signed up for with this game once they had to sign up. I looked over the options and thought about my enjoyment of the game, combined in the math of how much I was paying per month and decided to bite the bullet and go with the 6 month plan. Time will tell if I made the right choice or not.

So what about you fine folks? Anyone else join me for the long haul or you sticking to a month by month bases?

Subscribed for a monthly then immediately canceled it as soon as it let me download the client.

Once the initial 30 day time that comes with the game, I plan on signing up for the six month plan.

How do these MMO subscription times work. Is it 30 days of ingame time or is it 30 days real world time regardless of whether your playing or not?

Six months for now, but might downgrade a few notches depending on whether my interest persists. For now it feels like six months.

I'll probably wait for the eventual F2P conversion that'll happen in a couple years.

One month. I like the game, but I'm not convinced I'll still want to play after my main hits 50.

I used paypal for 1 month, just to get my free month, then cancelled because I'll be using gamecards most likely.

Put 1 month for now but I will probably switch to game cards a bit later.

Actually surprised at how many 6 months there are. Was expecting 99% 1 months.

Bought the game with a 60-day time card. So... 90 days, no subscription.

@Jeust: @Uranium: Ah. I suppose going by in-game time would be a really poor business model.

It wouldn't be really poor, but not nearly as profitable.

One month for now. I'm playing the game rather intensively, logging quite the amount of hours, so I'll eventually figure out how it holds up about 30 days from now.

At only a $1 difference per month on the 90 day, and $2 on the 180 I stuck with the monthly. I'd rather gauge the post-release content and progression for a couple of months before making a longer term commitment. If the savings where a little more I'd probably do a longer time, but it's not worth it for me right now.
