No events? Charging for disposable fireworks I had thought were only going to be free? Had been looking forward to this day thinking I was going to have a good festive time firing off all mine at once but now, if they give us some "free" ones for subscribing, they're going strait to the GTN.

Think I may be smelling the coffee for the first time. Fear I helped grow this monster by spending too much money buying CC. I'm sorry.
^ This how I feel. I have also been a support of the Cartel Market, but this just make me

So your wife would just sit there an let you buy a PS3 then still give you it on Christmas?

Secondly, where does this 4 months worth of sub coins for ONE pack for ONE character number come from? What are we considering a pack here?
The discounted pack is 2400 for everything, that's 4 months of subsciber coins, per character you buy them for.


If you bought just the clothes and speeder seperately they'd be 2760 cartel coins.

So the pack IS the cheapest way to buy them, it's just extortionately expensive as it is.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Ah, in that case yeah that, I guess, will only come about once datamined or enough people have bought the pack.

They aren't even clear as to whether old rares drop with this new pack.

Every time new pack is released there should be a proper list of what it may contain. Otherwise it's a pure scam... -_-

Assume makes an... you get the point.

I've no idea how there not being a Life Day event make this behaviour better............... can you explain it please?

They say the rares don't drop from the same packs but I did get an old speeder [Ubrikki Crimson Claw].. (Yes I know it's not a rare item)

So... just got a look at the life items and the pack... lol! This thread now takes on a new meaning.

I wouldn't pay one cred or coin for the Life Day items for sale. The only thing remotely appealing is the speeder and those lights will get old fast.

So being insulted for not getting these items as a freebie isn't even a remote possibility. Now... what might be insulting is that BW thinks these items will be big sellers.

But meh... it's a big joke. I've bigger fish to fry.

Just got back from looking at the speeder as well. Price isn't even the issue. Looks like cheap user-made content from The Sims 3.

I get that they started down the slippery slope of P2W...but, at the moment, I don't care because it's the stupid space stuff. I tried really hard to enjoy that part of the game, but it's just so boring I cannot even force myself to do it.

Subs get complete access to the game, no other unlocks needed.

Most, if not all, of the items from the Cartel Market can be sold on the GTN. You can buy said items without spending a dime.

While the lack of a Life Day event sucks, Bioware providing items via the Cartel Market doesn't seem like an issue to me at all.
