I started playing f2p. I really like this game, and am trying to figure out the best way for me to play it. I thought cartel coins would be good, b/c I go through phases where I play one game at a time, and think it's awesome you can permanently unlocks things to come back a month or two later and still have everything. Then I would subscribe down the road for a month or two for end game.
A problem I see is account unlocks, I get 2 characters and account unlocks cost more than buying unlocks separately. Why? What's the benefit? Will we get to buy character slots in the future? And will my account unlocks apply to them?
Now I'm thinking of subscribing, letting my allowance of cartel coins stack up, and building the 5 characters I want to play, then let my subscription run out and purchase the unlocks I want. Will this work? Will I lose characters? Is this a more economical way then subscribing at the end?
