Last post I assumed that it would be within my capabilities to play the game. How naive.
After having installed the game from the three DVDs I wanted to play. Of course I first needed to log in. I tried my EA account but that didn't work. So I tried to make a new account but that didn't work either because there already was somebody with my email address: me.
It took me some time to figure out that I should log in at the EA web account and then "redeem" my game code. Fine. I went back to finally play. Now the log-in worked. Great.
But I was told that I don't have an active subscription. So I went back to the web account and subscribed. Right after having subscribed I unsubscribed. I don't like automatically recurring subscriptions and the FAQ explicitly said that I would still be able to play the game for the remaining 29 days that came with the game itself.
Now I wanted to finally start the game. I failed because I still had no active subscription. So I went back to the web account and 're'subscribed but didn't unsubscribe right after. I went back to the launcher, logged in and wanted to play. But apparently the launcher is now permanently confused and thinks I have no active account. I am told to go subscribe to the game.
Since I log in with the same email/password on web account and launcher and since the web account tells me that I am currently subscribed for 29 days I know this is wrong. So much for SW:TOR.
