I think that it is pretty shady that bioware puts up false advertisements and misleading statements to get more players in the game. on my client when i log in it says"Earn an exclusive speeder" then it says "learn how to receive a new speeder by inviting friends to a FREE* trial. which is not the case if you look into it. you have to wait to see if that friend actually decides they want to pay to play and if they do not want to play the game we do not receive our speeder.

Now I understand that this is a marketing tool to get more subscriptions and reward us, the players for doing your advertising for you. I have no problem with that. I do have a problem with the fact that you lie to us to get us to do this by telling us a flat out lie. when i looked into the exclusive speeder offer it says that the person you invite has to play the trial and then sign up for a subscription or buy a time card. This is not what is advertised on the game client. If you were to say get your friends to subscribe and we will give you this speeder. that would be a true statement. Upon further review of the rules of your offer it also says that we only receive the speeder as long as the invited person is actively paying to play and that you may repo the speeder at any time? *** seriously bioware. So please next time you make a offer like this please don't lie to us the gamers tell us the truth on how to get the special item and we will still try and get it im sure.
