Discussions about CE vendor will be held in January. That's what they said recently in the Livestream Q&A.

There is dozens of similar threads so prepare for a storm and all the sort of insults associated with feeling entitled to the content you paid for...

The CE vendor in fact has exclusive items in it right now.

Now, if you were pleading for new/more items... OK.. well... wait and see.

Besides, If they said yes right now today.... you'd still be all worked up about it because promises mean nothing to most MMO players.
The MMO player would do well to embrace the nature of reality: Everything is relative, a projection based upon a malleable set of universal laws. Reality is an elastic process in which our individual choices play an active role.

Really? Really? Don't you already have the Vendor, VIP Club, physical items that came with the box, and your new F2P items? Quit being greedy. You bought the game, and you got what you paid for. Just because you have a gold key in your signature and have CE doesn't mean they have to continually reward you for a purchase that happened over a year ago. It's like buying a special edition or collectors edition movie from a famous director, and assuming that because you bought the CE, you get all his future movies free of charge. That's the stupidest and most selfish sense of greed and entitlement I've seen in a community. STO lifers are happy with what they get and they paid double what you did.

From what they did until now it is very likely. Hold your thumbs in January, though. But it's very disturbing that we were not only advertised a "dynamic assortment of items" but it was clearly said that the shop will get regular updates in pre-order page if i remember correctly AND it was even said so by a dev in one of the similar threads.

Can I plead for items that were stripped out because of a BS reason, and has only seen nose-snubbing by adding more speeders of the exact same type that got removed? Because, you know, that Korrealis Commander's calling to me from its grave, saying "Sorry you didn't plow through to 50 and complain about lack of content in a month flat. Ride me, Space Cowboy Jedi!"

I want that thing. Dumb as it sounds, it was like the highlight of me hitting 50, and since they stripped it out, I kind of said "well, what's waiting for me when I hit 50? What's my 'treat?'"
The average person thinks he isn't.

Indeed. I am just chalking it up to lessoned learned. I don't expect EAware to ever ... EVER get around to doing anything with the CE owners. They have our money. They want "new" money. CC Store will always have priority.

On a related note, it is amazing to me how EA has now surpased $oE in less than a year for disappointing me and jerking me around. It took $oE a good 5 years to make me hate them. EA did that in less than 9 months.

My bets are what you see is what you get! In SWG we had the Special Edition Goggles. That was it for 9 years. They won't more because that would generate too much hate.

And we saw. We did. We saw "a dynamic assortment of items" (and the assortment is not dynamic in any way...).

The only hate they can generate is from CE owners - we did not get what we paid for. Vendor was advertised to have updates. Period.

When you're buying something and the said contents of the packaging are missing then you usually go and ask for a refund...
