If there was an entry in Websters dictionary for rage post, this would be the example.

You didnt have to exploit anything. I went from 300k to 3 million in 2 weeks doing dailies and selling drops on the AH. Had I kept doing so I could have likely got a second Crystal, but I didnt feel I needed 2.

Credits are easy to get, you had every opportunity to farm, you chose not too.

As a result you didn't get a crystal before the vendor was removed, and it was very clear that it would only be around until 1.2 dropped. You have nobody to blame but yourself.

Your right creds was easy to get 2 months ago when the servers had enough people to sell to and by things. But now for those of us on a low pop server no they are not easy to get other than dailies . The crystal vendor i can live without. But dam sure makes ya mad to wanna unlock some of the legacy items and think well i only have to farm dailies for another 3 months to get that item...
Live life with honor,And you will die with no regrets.

The point of the crystal vendor (and the white crystals specifically) was to be a credit sink. Those early adapters with millions of credits to spare were to spend money to get the new crystals and thus empty their wallets.

Complaining that they are only affordable to those who had the money is stupid because that was the entire point of having the vendor in the first place...

Which is the entire point of HIS post.........
Bioware screwed up by making a severely unbalanced economy (don't TELL me that slicing wasn't stupidly amazing at launch......)
In order to fix said economy that put people at a major advantage, they decided to create a credit sink......which offered some of the coolest items in the game.

Meaning...they people who took advantage of the unfair economy got to take advantage of the coolest items in the game that everyone else had 5 times harder time to get.

That's what he's upset about.


I agree and disagree with it. But figured I'd clarify.
