I wanted to take a bit of time to explain the reasoning behind the weapon selection on the vendor. As you know, each SWTOR event that we do is unique and this also applies to the variety of items offered. That is, if you don’t find anything that you think is useful during this event, you may find a different assortment of items in the next one. Your feedback is definitely appreciated and we’ll look into different ways to improve our item selection in the future.
Thanks for participating!
Your scenario doesn't work because there's way too much time between the events.
Also as mentioned the event rewards are biased because only 1 Rep class can use the weapons versus 2 Empire.
As example I have 3 main chars and none of them can use the weapons. Neither My Jugg, nor my Inquisitor not even my Commando can and even less my daughter Sentinel. Speak of good design not rewarding players that have 4 out of 8 classes.
What I read in your post is too bad for you: wait for the next event.
Not sure this is such a good way to keep customers.
Now would you have proposed a time frame for future events and classes rewards that would have been a totally different message.
