Because I felt unique in game when I had stuff that people could no longer obtain
I sure hope you're not serious. I suspect you are just trolling.
I get some of my entertainment out of being unique, showing off my equipment etc
But no one else cares. The only person you are "impressing" is yourself.
.thats how it's reduced my fun. I don't want to be boring and unoriginal like you. I role play a lot and for me this has kinda ruined my experience
Form your tone, I can tell that you do not role play at all. RP is in the mind, not the pixels. What you (try to) do is Second Life in Star Wars, not RP. Which is OK with me, if that's what you want to do.
