The prices for items on the cartel market is just way too high. Do you really expect people to pay ten to fifteen dollars for an armor set or color crystals? These prices need to be somewhat reduced. The cartel conversion from cash to cc is fine, but lower the price of actual armor sets and crystals a bit.

I fully expect people to do so. In fact I know I will myself.

This is the price of vanity in a game. I'm vain and I have disposable income.

Believe me, a lot of the people that are upset about this will be purchasing the items themselves... and no one will know but Bioware and them. Anonymity allows them to be able to continue the crusade without being publicly compromised on their position.

I will definitely boy some. I see it as my support for game beyond subscription, as I really love game.
Nobody force anybody to buy it. And it does not affect anybody's gameplay.
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

The only thing I'm upset about, is that there's not 300+ orange sets of armor for sale...

I don't intend to buy anything from the cartel shop (signature). The prices are ridiculous and I will only spend my CC grant to get the hood down armor for my Jedi.

Appearance affects gameplay a lot.

Who gives a damn if freemium players have to pay $10-$15 bucks for armor sets and color crystals. Serves them right for not subbing.

Subscribers won't have to pay anything to get those items. They can easily save up their monthly stipends and get anything they want for free.

Yeah, but saving up is gonna take a very long while. And nobody said that CC items will not be seasonal! This is always an option. Before you save up for what you want it might be gone. That's how they might want to players to quickly buy CCs instead of saving up.
