I was annoyed they put them on the cartel market as I had grinded to get the items and schems in time for patch day. It took another day to get the last bit. I was even more annoyed when a guilie poopooed my effort by going on about P2W. Which this is.

Then again, that is the idea behind "Pay" to win, so I guess we'll see how the market is for these in the coming weeks. I have been rather surprised by how much RL money people have spent on stuff though, several of my guildies have dropped cash on cartel coins like it's candy and they're subs too. Bioware must be making a ton of money since the F2P launch, or EA, rather.
You mean the crafters actually crafted?? wow, unless it was on every other server except mine?.......though i agree, it is taking the pee.

Are you a complete failure as a crafter and have to take it out on others?
Do you have no idea how to sell anything on the GTN?
Do you hope the communists take over the GTN and dole out the contents to the players for free?

Off course thats how Free to play works. it is intended to work that way. Its a way to capitalize on the product.
Not giving up on it. To be honest i was suprised to see this game released without F2P model.

There is a nearly 90 page thread on this here:
http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...569897&page=89

Despite a dev response (pg 55)... 1.6.1 hit with no changes. If they are looking for a better solution, they should raise the CC price in the meantime.

Let's see if we can get to 100 pages, and maybe something will change.

Meh. Ship parts were never a big profit to me so I never bothered with them on my cybertech. But, I don't see how people could not expect this from EA, and make no mistake, it is EA's doing. To be honest, this is barely P2W. Win what exactly? Single-player space missions? No space pvp? No space co-op? Let em have it. I make more selling Mats than I do with anything else.
