So I figured I'd give this another try, however it seems the fact that I only used the 30 days that came with my digital deluxe version doesn't get me in the early access program.
Back to SWTOR it is then....
Welcome back my fellow captains, I hope you enjoy returning to the chair
Is the referral program still active? I can still send out referral emails and keys, but do those I refer and I still get the bonuses?
Subscriptions and lifetime accounts are still available and are not going to be discontinued, so I'm sure if you refer someone (through the link, I messed up and didn't get the bonuses because I didn't use the web link) and they maintain a registered account for the required time (I believe 2 months) then I'm sure you'll still get the bonuses. If a dev sees this hopefully they'll confirm it, or correct me, but I honestly don't see why they wouldn't still honor the refer a friend program, especially since the link is still active.
It is good to be back, I log in and first thing that happens is I get a bunch of medals and awards and gain skill points which looked great. But, the lag when entering sol is terrible! It took 10 minutes just to load Sol. Overall though, I am impressed with how many things have changed in past years and look forward to keep playing for a long time.
Due to financial reasons, I had to let my subscription lapse last February. I'm patching as we speak (18%) and hope to be playing in a few minutes. I haven't really kept up with what's been happening in the STO universe this past year so it'll be great to see what's happened.
