A while ago I wrote on the blog about how I had become disenchanted with Star Wars: The Old Republic. I was no longer logging in and playing like I used to. I knew, eventually, that my account would go into the Preferred status, because I removed my payment information from my account before my subscription ran out to prevent it from auto-renewing.

This week on Corellian Run Radio, Jason, Mox, and I talk about our experiences playing SWTOR Knights of the Fallen Empire Chapters 10 and 11, and I talk about what it’s like becoming a Preferred (non-subscription) player.

Last night I PvPed for the first time in a long time! It’s been months since I’ve been in a warzone or arena, but I have at least dueled a bit with my guildies. I joined a group of players, some that I’ve met in person and others that I know from Facebook, and had a great time!
