  • The items are character bound and stackable (the way it works currently)
  • The items are non-stackable and bound to Legacy. (we did not choose this option to avoid a cargo bay somewhere full of currency)
  • The items are fully tradeable (these are meant to be earned, at least for now)
Those were our options from a tech standpoint and our justification for the decision we made. Hope that makes sense!

First and foremost - thanks for the reply Eric. Always good to get straight-forward, informative answers, they are very much appreciated.

That being said, in terms of the reason itself: wow, that is somewhat... concerning. I'm not trying to read too much into things but if *this* is a technical hurdle the team can't overcome, I'm a little worried. (And I'm not saying just because it seems like a small thing in terms of gameplay mechanics it must be a small thing in terms of programming - I know that's not how things work; BUT as has been pointed out with the Cartel Certs, it's clear this technical limitation has been overcome with at least some items - updating the existing items or at the very least swapping them out should be doable.)
