As far as I know most publishers offer some kind of bonus to their loyal p2p users like bonus exp/ special items or some other stuff.
I dont know about star wars, though.

here a good sample what 1 of bioware have wrote and some are not happy with it

Hey folks,

I will just be as honest as I can here, it was a poor choice in wording on our part. I know that players have made decisions around whether to remain a subscriber based on those words which makes it all that much more sensitive. I apologize if you feel that you were misled by what we said in that blog. Since this blog I feel we have been more consistent in our messaging that you can expect things like cosmetic and convenience features (like Appearance Designer) are the types of things we usually place on the Cartel Market.

It has always been our plan that as new content is released,(such as Flashpoints, Operations, in-game events, daily hubs, etc.) that subscribers will get access to these pieces of content. This is unlike a free-2-play player who will need to purchase access to that content. This is why we stated subscribers gained "unlimited" access to that content, because you get that as a part of your subscription.

For Cartel Market items, you have access to purchase all of them, as do F2P players. What sets you folks apart is your monthly stipend which will allow you to purchase those features at no additional cost should you choose. I realize with your stipend, and with all the features we have, you may not be able to get it all at once but you can get it in time as a subscriber.

With that being said we have definitely heard your frustrations around Game Updates and the value you feel as a subscriber. I don't have details today but we are continuing to look at options moving forward to make sure that you don't feel that way.

-eric


but for the rest i love the game very much happy ore not happy pll 1 thing is sure servers can be ubber full now thx to the f2p player base
ore this game wil never make it so wel

atm ad some mmo sites SWTOR is high on the list of best mmorpg of 2013

Rift P2P worked out fine for them and F2P has boosted there population again. Rift was Trions first MMO and was nicely polished working game with there up and coming titles and projects making rift F2P was a wise move. Gives them a popularity boost and since they are releasing ArcheAge I would guess most players will move to that.
