Here's my situation. I was playing swtor on a free-to-play account without issue last year. I went on a hiatus and uninstalled the game because I have limited space and swtor alone takes up about a 5th of my harddrive. I just decided to go back to it under a new account with plans to subscribe at Christmas, however, now, every single server loses connection seconds in. I barely get to picking my class in character creation when it boots me and says it lost connection. It says to go to the official swtor forums or support for issues. However, ingeniously on their part, you are barred from using any and all services related to technical issues, including forums, unless YOU HAVE ALREADY COMMITTED WITH A SUBSCRIPTION. That is why I am here. Has anyone experienced the same issue? And how can it be fixed?
