I do not share your sentiment.
Treek is a great addition to the game. It's something many players like, and no player is forced to acquire it or use it if they don't like it. It is amazing to me how much so many players detest choice. Actually.. they don't detest it, they just don't want anyone but themselves to have choice.
And the way they are adding it to the game is consistent with everything they have been doing for the last 8 months.
Yeah.. some people don't like the CM, cartel coins, etc. etc. But so what. Some people, in every MMO, don't like something.
Oh don't get me wrong, I love Treek. I think she's a fantastic addition to the game (she was originally intended to be included as a part of the ROTHC expansion, by the way). I'm not even against the idea of buying her with Cartel coins, provided the Legacy Level 40 requirement still stood. In fact, I would probably have done so myself (buying her, that is) if that had been the case.
It's just this complete absence of a barrier of entry, this idea of being able to obtain gains for zero effort, all in the name of the mighty $ sign, that irks me, and I predict Cartel Market sales to take a considerable dip if BioWare persists on this course.
