I disagree there were no white lightsabers in any SW games / Movies so this actually is not a part of the sw ideals... also remove Color-Black Crystals beacause these do not exist either!
There can be no Light without the Shadow of its bearer.

Look my main point I'm trying to get at is, there are not enough rare awesome items in this game! So it becomes a problem for everyone else that they cannot be unique like some people. Why should some people be more unique than others? Everyone deserves to be unique , they are devoting tons and tons of hours/money just like everyone else. Like I said, THIS IS WHY WE PLAY THE GAME! Doesn't have to be about bringing back the white color crystal, just throw some super rare gear/items every month or extend the crew skills levels maybe so that if you work long/hard enough you'll get that rare sweet gear. That should weed out the average player from the die hard players. Something along those lines.

I think the people who got theirs when it was possible should be allowed to stay special for doing it back then.
So abusing pre-nerf slicing entitles them to an ugly crystal?

So you only want one because it's rare-not because you like color or anything. So if the game had poo-brown crystals that were even harder to get you would want those too?

Pure White Crystal = Founder Title as far as this arguement is concerned.
People actually use the Founder title?

I'm sorry, I didn't realize people played to have fun, not to have something to brag about. Not enough to be proud of on the other side of the screen I guess.

Real life =/= Game life

To say that 'grinding' real money should grant you benefits in a game is just as ridiculous as saying completing Denova HM entitles me to a pay rise in my job.
They are completely different and un-related worlds.

I can complete sonic the hedgehog without losing a single life, so i should have the option to buy full campaign gear in SW:TOR with all those gold rings i collected

Does it invalidate people's existence if someone spends an hour's worth of cash on an item they spent days grinding fake cash to get? Or just make them think about how much time they actually spent on that grinding and if it was an efficient use of their time? Why is someone threatened by others having their shiny objects?

I spent my 2.5 mil and have one. Make them never return!!! XD
Alas, they'll probably come back someday.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

Does it invalidate your existence if someone has an item in a game that you can't get? No it does not. Silly point you made really since nobody is questioning their existence based on someone wanting what they currently can't have.

But not just as a hand out for a few cartel coins.
I think this is an excellent solution. Using the legacy system to bring them back would be an interesting way to allow current players a chance at acquiring them. The point is to have the crystal back but not in a manner that would seem too unfair to those who got them already. I think items that are 'no longer available' should be limited to the world events only, there is no real need to remove these (and even those korrealis speeders and yes I have one). I would like to see them brought back, maybe as a rare drop and/or for a fair, though reasonably large, cost of credits/comms/coins. There are many ways this could work. I would like to see this happen.
