What do you guys think? There was no mention of an event, just datamined Life Day-themed items and a mention of Life Day Cartel Packs by the devs. Tbh I'd hate an event like this and I think it's better off to release themed cartel packs. Who wants to role play an event will have a handful of items then.

Cartel packs IMO, they make $$$ even off subscribers, which is what nickel and dime F2P is all about.

I'd rather have events as good as the brilliant Rakghoul event, of course, but I sceptical about seeing those now.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Yeah, I thought bioware said they didn't want subscribers to miss out, that they'd get everything with their subscription...

If we go and call this an event it's only for people that buy (additional) coins, it's an insult to subscribers and past events. I think I recall BioWare even saying there'd be more events? If they mean this is what they mean with that it's a bad sign.

What's next? Candy cane lightsabers & blasters? Well, we're already going there with the new crystals, free to play is starting to ruin it for sure.

The whole term 'event' is misleading. There are no events going in game.

Hey folks!

While we're definitely excited about the new Life Day items in the Cartel Market, I wanted to make sure that you all knew that we do not have an in-game event planned for this. However, this doesn't mean that we don't have any in-game events planned for the future! We'll have more information for you sometime after the holidays.

Thank you!

Don't know where people got an event from? Someone data mined and found something labled life day and called it a future event. Everyone else bought that and carried it. Now that it's confirmed not to be, people get upset.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Looks like we can rule out an event on the one year anniversary as well.

Joveth I'm sorry but that's not what we were led to believe. This just got me really disappointed and ill be considering not resubbing from now on and thats a shame cause I have 3 lvl 50's and a couple of other alts. On top of that I was considering upgrading my son's account to subscriber status since he loves the WZ and has a f2p account.

But since you guys are not even making an event out of the biggest holiday of them all you lost me. I'm sorry but this is just too much.
