Phantom was implemented incorrectly to begin with. Did you actually think that Bioware wouldn't change it to what they actually advertised? False advertising is what would have been if they left it without matching the pictures on the cartel pack.

You Chose Poorly with the decision to change it (fix it, whatever).

return it to what it once was. undo the change. LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMER BASE AND DO THE RIGHT THING. Guaranteed there is NOT ONE PERSON who likes the change. Remove the shoulders/hood thing and put it back to how it was. Please!
They listened to their customer base when they fixed it in today's patch. If you didn't want them to fix it to correspond to the image shown on the Blockade Runner's Cartel Pack then you should have stated that weeks ago when the request to change it was made.

While making people pay for something and then taking it away is called...what...hmmm... scam? Robbery?

The main problem is most people DID NOT know that it looked "incorrect" or that it was going to be changed. Otherwise it would not have been a hot-ticket item on the GTN and no one would have bought it until they could preview its actual look before purchase.

See my post from 1 minute ago. Most people did not know about this at all.

I don't know what you guys are on, but the new models smoke the old, flat ones.

hahaha! Don't hurt yourself twisting logic into pretzels trying to defend Bioware. In all reality, this kind of stuff is the basis of many a complaint to the Better Business Bureau or even a lawsuit.

So everytime I buy an item I have to search through all advert pictures and forums to make sure it is as intended and not going to be changed in the future?

Do you realize how stupid your statement is?
All you had to do is look at the picture on the cartel pack to see both armor pieces looked totally incorrect.

The change feels like an insult. Now the chest item clips with my lower robe, so I'm pretty much forced to abandon it. I would not consider this a minor thing. For months I've waited for a hood-toggle to appear, something they promised way back before 1.2. It never came. I've been looking for a nice outfit for so damn long, and I finally found one in the Cartel Market. Now they changed that too, so I'm back to square one.

I am constantly questioning my subscription.
Then you think way too much about your monthly fee.I already paid so no point in ranting about it.Glass is half full to me.��
