When I got my Spymaster gear, I got it based on what I actually saw in the game, the gear preview screen WAS the advertised appearance I went by. I especially liked the upper body, because it was unique and unlike anything else in the game.

Look, I get that you wanted to change it because some people got it based on what they saw in the icon, but when you are the one who screws up, if anyone it's you who are the ones who should suffer for it when you go and try to make it right, not the players.

Not cool BioWare, not cool...

I'm a person for those small details in things, and to add some extra parts to what before looked like a very flat multi colored shirt is in my opinion appreciated

So very not cool. But very much the standard of service we have come to expect, sadly.

We apologize for any inconvenience. In the future, we will ensure that all assets are in alignment on the Cartel Market. The final products are meant to look like the advertised art.
Joveth, I loved both sets as they were before this fix. Is there any chance we can get some other armor sets based on those models in (very) near future? Losing the look I loved on both my Assassin and my Operative makes this a very sad day.

RE the Armor changes: I empathize with those who spent credits or cartel coins to get the look they wanted; however, in BW's defense this has been on the Known Issues List. Still, it seems like there has to be a good solution for all.
Bioware isn't interested in a good solution for all, they are only interested in alienating the maximum number of people they can with each change they make. So many aspects of this game are DESIGNED to be petty annoyances from the very start. I swear it looks like more and more that EA/BW are deliberately trying to kill the SW IP with their constant screw ups, mistakes and high handed actions.

They could make everyone happy by allowing an option to change. Instead, they choose to piss off as many or more people than they made happy. Further alienating their customers and subscribers. I have several characters that simply no longer look like I designed them to look after this 'fix'. I am going to have to take this into consideration when It comes time to renew my sub.

By itself, it isn't a major deal, I can always go seeking out another piece or two to fix the look as best I can. But taken with all the other tiny paper-cuts this game has (though I admit they have fixed SOME of them and I'll be the first to give them props for doing so), it starts to become egregious. When I find another look I like, and spend real money to get, what's to say BW won't come along in a month or two and change it? messing up my new look? Nothing, Not a ******* thing. So yeah, it now becomes an issue where I spent my hard earned money for a specific look, that no longer exists. I'm now unhappier by a factor of more than $100.00 (not counting sub).

When real money starts squeaking at me... it makes me listen real hard.

I LOVE the changes, BUT, they need to get rid of the rear but cape as it clips through the robe.

Okay, then refund the remaining time on my six month sub as well as the money I spent on cartel coins to get these items. If you don't I'm submitting a BBB complaint for bait and switch.

Also, the stylish dancer outfit is yellow/white. It's the new reveler outfit that's red and showing incorrectly in the advertisement. Good job not even knowing what's going on.

But it's still okay to be misleading in the description text of the Cartel Packs? Right?

Sorry but continuing to say that each different pack includes Rare Bonus Items found no where else in each one is still misleading since I've never failed to get less than 2 Covert Torso energy armor each time I buy more than 4 packs. Guess they are found elsewhere, not just in that specific pack.
