Well, I do agree that there would be a major flare-up in the forum wars between CE and non-CE IF they did in fact add some cool exclusive content to the CE vendor. Total nonsense... but it was hilarious when it happened pre-launch. It had more spunk and energy then Sith vs Jedi.

Maybe them not doing so is to pre-interdict forum wars. See... if everyone could behave and not get into virtual vibroblade fights over silly digital goodies.... maybe these threads could be retired.
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.

I hope they make me an honorary CEO, shareholder with 5,000 shares of EA stock, a company jet and a personal Twi'lek slave. After all, I paid my money. I deserve nothing less.

When you're buying something and the said contents of the packaging are missing then you usually go and ask for a refund...
think might have to report them to trading standards...lol .

You're in luck, friend, for I have a website for you! PersonalTwiLekSlave4Me.com! Completely legit! They may sound Russian, just ignore that - it's a, uh, "Twi'Lek Accent," yeah, that's it!

The CE really isnt that exclusive.

Anyone who pays for a VIP band can get the same vendor content. The only exclusive thing the CE people really got were the toys (pet, speeder, holodancer, flare gun and camera).

Wish you were able to remember www.swtor.com/pre-order saying that CE Vendor will be receiving regular updates "to keep players coming back".

CE was sold in surprisingly large quantities sometime around May and at ridiculously low prices. So much for limited and exclusive edition of the game, huh? Most of the players I know are CE owners. What's the problem? That's the point of buying a CE - having an exclusive item. If all of them CE update enemies are saying that player wearing exclusive and fancy stuff is not better than someone without it then what's the problem? Why would they hate on a company for delivering promised content to customers who extra for it?

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.
Well it isn't exactly greed in that they did promise and tell us our CE vendor would be updated with items. I have said it and will say it again people love tossing around entitlement. some people bought the CE for the box stuff while others for the in game things. i would ask you where is the entitlement for something was promised to all CE owners?

To the STO lifers I am afraid to tell you they are not considering what Perfect World did by selling pretty much everything lifers get for half the cost.

To the OP we already have items only for us I think you mean to say when will they add more

Nah, there's actually a second vendor up there exclusive to the CE guys. They sell a handful of customizations (for example, my Guardian has on a T7 custom that gives them a round head, I think?) a set of orange empty shells (Republic Soldier for Reps, Imperial Trooper for Imps,) and a speeder that is NOT the Korrealis Commander that was originally there.

Oh, and I think a droid, or a pet, or something? It's something small, like the Rhythm Droid, I think.

Korrealis Commander was never available from a CE vendor. it was accessible to everyone once they purchased VIP access. Rhythm droid is from Sec-key vendor. I wonder how nobody is raging that sec-key owners are having super-useful fleet-passes and are rocking around with slave outfits and Rhythm Augmentation droid?

I could swear it was CE vendor only. Oh well, regardless, bring it back in. You can't rip it out because "they're too big," then have drops and new speeders in the game be as big or bigger than these things. It's... it's unamerican!
