Either way, they're paying attention to the fuss. I'll take that and see what comes of it.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Honestly, his post doesn't actually say anything; here it is parsed:

Internal miscommunication about how much these should be charged for (He does not say they don't belong on the market at all, just that the price is in question.)

They will start TALKING about doing something (don't say what they will do or when.)

Whatever changes they make will be for the betterment of the game, however they percieve it, not out of good will. The good thing is that most of the time businesses make the right decisions to balance profit and customer satisfaction, though we usually only hear about the spectacular failures.

The success of the store will ensure that we retain non-grind options to a good degree, I believe.

It seems some of the items are not available on the fleet but only in the content ship pack, which I ended up buying so I could find out how failing difficult and UNFUN the new missions are.

I am objectively correct about what Bioware's statements on this matter have been. Slurmez erroneously claimed that their statements previously indicated their intent to release end game PvE and PvP gear on the Cartel Market.

I have no guarantee for anyone that they'll stick to what they said previously. Regardless, the objective truth of what their statements were remains the same, and spreading blatantly false information about their statements contributes nothing(only serving to discredit the person making incorrect claims).

*EDIT

Durasturan went off on a rant about lying and such, completely unrelated to my original points.

You should change the first sentence to: Whatever changes they make will be for the betterment of their business and bottom lines..."

AAA titles have increasingly moved away from developing quality products in favor of relying on heavy handed marketing techniques and expenditures to drive sales. Don't believe me, go check out Activision and EA's quarterlies the for the last two fiscal years in a row. Each quarter they have pumped MORE money into marketing than into development. If that doesn't tell you what they think of "consumer satisfaction" then I don't know what does.

Agree on the unfun part, but I think that everything is available outside of the CC, you just have to go to different places to get them. Fleet vendor, daily vendor, GTN for the stuff that can only be crafted.

Well, I don't think it would be right for them to remove them now so that only the few who jumped on it got it. I think they would anger more people if they did that then leaving it as is. I'm not happy that they did this at all, but I'd like to let them know if they continue this trend, then I'm gone.
