It could bring it back. I enjoyed the game, but felt the 50 content was weak so if they can address that in the fall they could bring a lot of players back since they can play around in "the world" without cost for a bit.
It'll definitely help but I think pretty much anything would at this point. The problem is level 50 content is still meh at best so once you get to 50, then what? Assuming you subscribe, you then become a slim percentage of the population that requires relatively geared players to complete the lvl 50 flashpoints and operations.

There is potential in the game, however Bioware's SWTOR team has rolled out one epic fail right after another causing people to leave en masse.
From what I've read about the F2P move, the features that it has will make the game much more appealing to people who just want something like a KOTOR 3.
Including the original developers.
I foresee 1-49 being popular for awhile, maybe a spike in level 50's for a month or two, and then the game will go back to the state it is in now. 1-49 is so ****ing boring after you've done it once and especially twice. Doing the same side missions over and over just sucks. PVP'ing, space missions, and flashpoints to level gets old as well.
