Ok, I've been looking at this game for a little while now and have a question about the "minute cards" (or whatever you want to call them) that you buy with the game. Is that only for online play (multiplayer) or just whenever you want to play the game (singleplayer)? Also do they give you 2 months of playing or does it count time that you're not playing as well? Any help is appreciated.
My guess is that it expires exactly two months after you activate the card.
Yep, just found the answer to my questions. You have to buy a card to just play the game and it expires two months after you activate it. I don't have the money to pay that every month so I guess I just have to live without it.:(
Trust me don't play it now. You have missed the boat by a year at least. Almost no one plays it anymore and they ruined it by trying to make it more WoWish which everyone hated and quit the game. You won't get any fun from it.
Yeah, I read lots of reviews like that. I'm not getting it.

Recent changes to the game have met with some degree of disapproval, but the game was crap even before these changes. It has always been a buggy grind-fest devoid of content, and the only reason it has ever been remotely successful for so long is because it has the Star Wars name slapped on it. You're not missing much. If anything, in fact, from what I've heard of the changes being made they have actually improved it somewhat.
