Submission + - Star Wars: The Old Republic, included 30 days does (

meerling writes: If you've purchased SWTOR and expect to be able to play on the 30 days included subscription time, before you decide to sign up for a recurring payment plan or buying a time card, you are in for a disappointment. Currently, you will be unable to play for the 30 days you already payed for unless you sign up for more. Some people are reporting that even though EA is saying that you won't be charged until the 30 days is up, it seems they are getting charged immediately. EA says this is a 'temporary charge' and you will get it back in a few days.
EA claims this is policy is mentioned on their retail packaging, this obviously does not include digital purchasers as there is no packaging.
Various forums are discussing/ranting about this.
