personally I'm more worried about this:

"It is not our intent to make the Cartel Market the “way to play" the game—we want you to feel that both the Cartel Market and earning gear in game are viable options as far as value goes, neither being far more efficient or effective than the other."

Ie the plan as stated here is the Cartel Market is as effective as playing the game for gaining equipment certainly a statement that as it stands tends to imply the long term plan is to sell end game equipment sets through the Cartel Market. Further clarification is required as a matter of urgency.

Note that in the 6? months since the announcement it has gone from

1. Cosmetic items only to
2. Some blues available to
3. Purple leveling gear available to
4. BiS Slot crystals available 40 lvls before they are attainable through gameplay to
5. BiS upgrades for the minigame being effectively only available through the Cartel Market for the majority of players

This does not currently present a pretty picture and makes me wonder what they will be selling in another 6 months
