Yellow/Black color crystal. They're expensive, but end game versions are available.

But I agree about there being very little for owning the DD.

And, oh by the way, the Speeder you can buy now is not the speeder you could be before.

Maybe because my friends who wanted to play IS already playing. And others don't have money to play / don't want to play.

You know, perhaps the Deluxe edition was never intended to be a permanent change to the state of the universe (Star Wars or otherwise).

Perhaps it was just a marketing idea, and a good one at the time, that many people bought and enjoyed.

Now, they have different marketing ideas, with different rewards.

Next year, they'll have different marketing ideas, with even better reward.

The speeder that you now have to refer a friend to get will eventually be available to everybody. And next year, there will be some other, new, even cooler reward for referring friends. And everybody who refers a friend NOW will complain all over the boards next year that "Hey, I referred a friend last year, and all I got was a stupid speeder that anyone can get now! BW, give me the new cool gadget now for my referral last year!"

Perhaps this is a good time to learn the lesson that you are not entitled to everything that someone else has.

There's a guy down the street. He has a better car than you. Should car manufacturers be forced to give you the same car at the same price you bought yours for?

You got a free speeder for doing something. Someone else got a free speeder for doing something else. Their speeder is better than yours. If you're having trouble dealing with that, then you might not be mature enough to handle multiplayer gaming.

Alternatively: Multi-player gaming is a excellent venue for you to come to grips with reality before growing up and being forced into it.

I find it annoying how people are envious.

Mind your own stuff, no point begrudging what other people have.

You payed 80 bucks for the speeder, you got it. Why complain?

Personally - I LOVE my DD speeder. I would like to see an option to upgrade it to the 110% speed.

More exclusive items sold by the VIP vendors and something really cool for the CE players. (FYI - I don't have CE, but I think these guys / gals deserve something for spending so much cash.)

I want LEGACY unlocks to work like VETERANS REWARDS, rather than money sinks.
^^ What this guy said. I do have the CE and there were promises made to add to what the CE vendors offered.

Basically that speeder means the people that have it save the 400+k from having to buy any training or the mounts. Perhaps i wouldn't be as jaded if the VIP bracelet had ANY use besides suicidal jumping off the top or looking at the 1.5mil mount that the vip vendor sells, ONLY thing he sells. The camera is blah and the droid gets put in your bank cause its not a pet as was advertised. I mean are you trying to piss off the player base?
you do realize you can get the speeder for free right?
