So that's it, cancel your plans for now your time at this time of the holiday season has been fully booked.
The sub plan is on par with that of WOW's which many thought would be the case. Glad to see BioWare just rolled out the MMO norm on this one as anything more would of turned off a heap of potential players.
Now all that's left to do is book my holidays at work and I'm set. See you all in-game soon :)
