Companions Miss You When You Don’t Play for Awhile

What happens when you don’t log into SWTOR for awhile? Probably not much- the world goes on and your account sits dormant, right? Well, actually, when you don’t play for awhile, your companion misses you and you just might get an email like this one inviting you back.

Is this a smart move on BioWare’s part or a waste of time? I have to say that it sounds like a pretty good idea. Not everyone who gets the notices will come back to the game to play but the honest truth is that there are some people out there who just get so busy, they forget to log in the game.

You might get so wrapped up with busy life that you forget how long it has been since you logged in. A small message like this could be just the thing you need to refresh your memory and make you decide to pop back in for a minute and check it out. This is also a way for BioWare to add to their community service capabilities. It’s a way of saying “Hey, you’re important to us and we have noticed you haven’t been around for awhile.”

We’re not sure how long you have to go to get a message like this. If you’ve gotten one, do you know how long you were logged out for? Do you think this is a smart idea on the part of BioWare?
