When The Old Republic makes the Free 2 Play transition in a couple of months, veteran paying players will receive a special item. When BioWare first announced the F2P transition, they put up a couple of items players were able to vote on to decide what they’ll receive for being paying subscribers. The winner, to no real surprise, was the Party Jawa:
The Party Jawa celebrates a player’s status as a veteran of the galaxy with a unique and fun animation. The Party Jawa will be rewarded to current or previous subscribers as of August 1 and who are active subscribers when the Free-to-Play option launches.
The in-game pet will likely be mailed to eligible characters when the game switches over to Free 2 Play.
