It amazes me how instead of taking the gift and thanking them, as is the custom when receiving gifts, you feel the need to rip them apart for it. It's astounding!!!

(you might say "thank THEM FOR WHAT?! I STILL HAVE XYZ PROBLEM THAT THEY IGNORE!!!) The bolded part is an accusation that I see leveled way too often and has no basis. Some people's reasoning might bring them to that conclusion, mine takes me to the reason that they are complex bugs that need time to iron out. Yes yes I know "MORE TIME???" well apparently so.

You can't say "I pay so I deserve to have these bugs fixed now!" because it's naive to want such instant gratification when you're not able to examine the problem. Besides there is the F2P version so you're not required to pay (Restrictions aside).

As to the quoted part, it amazes me how people (honestly?) think that if they work on one thing, they ignore another thing. Yes, i'm sure they stopped working on fixing bug fixes to make fireworks, real logical conclusion.

That is all.

Dear EA/Bioware,
In celebration of OUR accomplishment of one full year of subscription, you have decided to bestow upon us fireworks and thank you kindly for those. However i find that they are quite worthless. I fired 4 of them.
It's especially joyous when my character just stands there when i fire off the firework, doing his/her normal lookaround shuffle idle thing. You can't even tie a /cheer into it, make it so we clap hands and squeal or something (yes in the future all emotes must cost us CC, but you could have recycled existing ones at least) It would be nice if there was at least some imaginary simulated delight going on somewhere, over this trumped up, much heralded and celebrated firework.
Joy upon Joy, i have fired a firework, when all of my Characters were given an even more useless flare gun at the start of their simulated lives...

I know those "I quit" posts are soooo annoying to people, but I get them now. I gotta say this somewhere, and this thread is asking for it. You want input as to how I am celebrating our 1 year anniversary.
I am celebrating by downloading Secret World and moving on. My subscription has been cancelled.
This whole event is a blind cash grab to squeeze us, subscribers or not, and it as transparent as glass. You guys are just riding high off the cash you have raked in since going F2P.
I hope that one day I can come back and not be repulsed by the in-your-face greed you exhibit, but something tells me that this behavior is just getting started. Maybe it's the miles worth of wasted text in these forums i have been too fanboyish to pay real attention too. Wish I did sooner.

You mean this? Ooops i let it spill lol.

I don't think you want my feedback. Plenty of people have summed it up in this thread already.

With all the anticipation and hype in the years leading up to this game, for it to be in such a state now just saddens me.

This is Tol'Tann the Jedi Knight celebrating during the rare night time on Hoth. The blue firework, together with everything else on Hoth being blue, is simply gorgeous. Her Twi'lek name means "Hope in fire." How appropriate for this thread.

This is my first post, perhaps could be my last post... ...given all the current long-term unresolved issues in the game amidst a seemingly successful short-term cash grab, I actually thought the Fireworks were a practical joke they were playing on us and the real celebration with gifts we may remember one year from now will come shortly, perhaps we can still live in hope.

Tip to Management: More Soul less $oul.

I agree with a lot of people that the Life Day stuff was nothing but a greedy cash grab by EA/Bioware.... I think they saw a lot of subscribers spending money on the cash shop when it first came out and figured we would continue to spend on items normally given free to subscribers in other MMO's.
F2P is like driving on a long stretch of highway with toll booths every 1/2 mile
