normaly it is wise to learn the other sides veiwpoint before engaging them in a debate or you may end up looking like a fool
They'd have gotten away with it too......... if it weren't for that pesky $18.00 Santa Mount.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

$18 is absurd. Just bought a 22 game pack off steam for $25. The THQ Collection if anyone is curious.

I am positive they make would more money selling this mount for a few bucks to a lot of people instead of going straight price gouge and hooking a handful of suckers. I seriously have to question the decisions that are being made by this company. It doesn't seem like they have a clue.

It's called taking advantage of people who will go and and buy it just to say they have it, so they can compete with other people. Take for instance I used to know this one lady who played Farmville who bought everything as soon as it came out just to put it on her farm so she could brag about having a certain item before her friends did.

I really despise his mentality on business economics, but what can I say if people are going to buy it their still going to do it.

I think the prices on the gear are too high, too, but that's just EA struggling to find a market clearing price.

Is there a complaints department for SWTOR?

I was gobsmacked at the price of this pack, why wouldnt it be free for subscribers? i pay them $15 a month and they expect me to pay the equivalent of $20 of coins for some holiday cheer?

I know i dont have to buy it, and i sure as hell won't, but it is like they want me/us to hate the game!!

For the record i have just finished the fun of Wintersday in GW2 (which is free, in a non sub game) while i waited to get my phone back with the security on it. Finally got back into SW and it has just spat in my face saying "yeah u pay MORE please".

Really disappointed

They're annoyed at the lack of another Galactic event. Here's the thing though, the events are nice because we don't expect them. I liked the Rakghoul event because I just logged on to level an alt and suddenly the entire fleet was abuzz with "where do you get the Containment Officer" headpiece and "LFG for 3 infected Tat WB!". It was AWESOME. A LifeDay event? Would just be a slap in the face.

They probably thought they were being generous with the price since blizzard charges $25 for a mount in wow. haha, but there's always someone who will buy it. (although I haven't seen too many of them on the fleet so maybe more people have some sense than I thought.)

Sounds like basic economics, I mean look at all the people who buy the new Iphones.... even though their last generation Iphone pretty much had the same features.
Those who seek attention and post they are unsubbing are much like wailing babies wanting attention.

vitas = fanboi.

and yup its insulting.

edit: Just watched that EA link, and if this game comes to the point where in pvp you can pay a "dollar" to fill your health up before you die forsay, or to fill your empty energy bar - whichever. I'm gone. Just listening to it makes me just not want to support EA's games at all anymore.

Thanks for that video. Opened my eyes.
