Terrible change!

It looks like crap now. If they are going to change it, after I already bought it. I want it set back to unbound so I can sell it.

Though with the way it looks NO ONE will buy it. So I guess we are stuck. I will just delete it. It looks horrible. Worse than the Reven set now and that set was really bad. It looks like my male characters are wearing some awful blouse.

I can't believe they changed this after people bought it.... well then again I can. Now you wait we will get another set that costs 1,200 cc that looks like the one they just changed.

I bet we see the old look for sale with a new set costing 1,200 cc.

I can't believe they changed this after we paid for it, or well yes I can..

I'm sure if you were interested in the specific look on the cartel pack you would have been more likely to know about the fact that the models didn't represent the art on the pack. You could have easily seen this by previewing the item and seeing this difference you'd have the choice not to equip the item and thus not bind it to your character. In fact you could place it on the GTN and sell it to those who did like the look.

No real loss here just a slight inconvenience. Players could redeem some of their loss by an ingame credit gain.

However, I came across the items mentioned only on the GTN as I don't tend to pay that much attention to cartel packs, contents or artwork. I previewed the items as they were on the GTN. I made sure they worked well together. ANd with those conditions met then I purchased the items and equiped them, thus binding them to my character and making them worthless to anyone else.

Reverting the model on this bound item has resulted in a real loss to me (about four hours play time on dailies to raise the in game cash).

It's funny people saying no one would buy it, or don't do this. This happened because people were mad that the pads weren't there like the pack picture. You can't assume that just because you don't like it, no one does. Similarly Bioware can't assume that because one thread says "fix it" doesn't mean that other's don't like the unintentional appearance. They need to cater to both audiences at this point since there are people who bought it in each camp and it can be argued that either was misled into what they bought/were buying.

Also now that people are buying items with real money, bugs become a much larger issue and should be more carefully tested/checked before dumped in a patch.

I'm with the most everyone. Regardless of how it was intended to look. Change them back, because it was the looks that they HAD before today are why people bought them. not because of what they looked like in the pack advertisement. Word of mouth a visuals are powerful tools, and this kind of thing can really have a negative impact on your base. Listen to your player base about these armors, they like them the way they were, change them back.
