WHY do you THINK they changed it? it's exactly because they DID listen to the customer base. And customer base was complaining that items did not look like they do on the cartel pack ads, so BioWare has listened and fixed it now. It is now looking as advertised. So original complains > current complaints.
Does not matter if it looks like the add now.
It looks like ****
compared to the super sleek, stealthy "phantom" look it had before. It was a mistake to change it.
If they just had to make something that looked like the advert, they should have added an item and changed the name to "Dark Jedi Chest Piece" with the graphical change.
