Star Wars: The Old Republic is poised to go free-to-play before the end of November (dated as Northen "Fall 2012"), but in addition to a micro-transaction element, there will still be a premium subscription option. For players wondering how these options are going to differ, BioWare has now published a "Free-to-play Option Chart" detailing the features of each (via: Massively):
As a general rule, the restrictions are in threes: three Flashpoints per week, three Warzones per week, three Space Missions per week. Players will also be able to buy weekly passes for these features to get unlimited access. There will also be restrictions on inventory expansions and cargo hold storage for free players, and field revivals on death will be limited.
Further information on TOR's free-to-play implementation can be found in the game's support pages.

This is why I think that their free to play model is going to fail. It's not a very good MMO, the only attraction is the story.

Its a pretty good MMO, it just suffers from the same problem nearly every MMO does, not enough content or lasting appeal to hold onto a decent sized subscriber base, and then its just a downward spiral as more people leave and it becomes harder to get groups for stuff, so more people leave, etc, etc.

I thought that the world/map design was pretty poor, as well as the lack of memorable or interesting 'places' (there's no Ogrimmer or Undercity or the like, just... a round space station mirrored on each faction..)
