As others have said its not the most creative thing in the world. I can think of games where fireworks were just another crafted item or used in a quest and really little different from the flare gun that nobody uses.

It feels like there is a lack of creative vision in the game at the moment, things like cartel items are re-coloured sets of armour already in the game, dread guard armour looks horrible but nothing has been done to improve this end game armour, non mini games and the less said about space the better. Now rather than an item that people will show of 10 years from now as being there at the 1st Anniversary we have 25 useable fireworks that most people will shoot off on the fleet and will get old very fast.

you know they don't want to go over the top on the first anniversary. there have been so many great things this year that giving out more than fireworks would just be ludicrous. got your party jawa, got a taun taun pet, a couple events and went F2P what else could we want. nothing useful that's for sure. if I could shoot the fireworks at bosses that might be cool. everyone knows how important fireworks are to the Star Wars universe. they've been featured in the movies. bring on the fireworks!!

Really?? Fireworks!!! I've kind of been waiting for the one year anniversary thought this would be the time where BW would bring out the creativity and show its community what its got going on and have something unique and exciting. and they blow it by doing something other games have done before, no original, not very Star Wars, unless you count the end of the movies where they are setting fireworks off. I know that was the best part for me lol. so congrats to all the people that stuck with the game and bioware throughout the year. here's your fireworks.

a party jawa that takes up bag space woop, a taun pet which there are about 5 different types that look identicle, and now we get fireworks woop woop, no not really. What would be better, a huge party in the cantinas to ow i dont know have an xmas party at the same time with some special dance moves just for the event that can be repeated every year on every aniversary. something to actually celebrate it.


Fireworks are just flares with a bit more glitter, its like someone sat down and went what is the least we can do to celebrate, ow i know, sparkles.

yep I agree anything would be better. just goes to show how much they value their player base. subscribers for a year. that should be their subscription model, in addition to cartel coins you will earn 2 fireworks a month that you can shoot off at the end of the year in a massive celebration. I'm sold renew me for another year LOL

I mean even Star trek online got a cool thing from their member reward program, something that they could use. Really SWTOR this is an insult.
I didn't even get the CE banner.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?
