Was literally looking at adaptaive armor on the GTN and previewing stuff to see what it looks like and found the phantom one and liked it. Sorry that's a hard concept for people to grasp.

Completely understand the original people that got screwed by buying the cartel packs for this armor would be upset and want a change. But reversing it back literally did the exact same screw job to the people who bought it off of the GTN because of previewing it. If it's a contest of who got screwed more then I'll concede that the people who paid real money for a chance at this specific armor got screwed more. But is that really a contest this game should be having?
Once again...Preview is not an Advertisement. Picture on Cartel Pack is an Advertisement. EA/BioWare can Be sue'd for Advertising Gear and people did not get what was advertised, IE: False Advertising.....they cannot be sue'd because you "previewed" it, No such thing as false preview.

what about the actual "advertisement" in the cartel market of the Investigator set? it looks nothing like it does in the preview screen...I have included an actual screen shot I just took..false advertisement?
either way..bioware needs to clean up their act..

ah..so perhaps they need to clarify? no...bioware needs to clean up their act..plain and simple. ensure all things are according to what they are describing for all characters - male/female...it was sloppy on their part, but I do want to say I am extremely happy they are looking into fixing the issues. its sad that it has taken a beast of horrid ranting to make them sit up and notice though..

Since you are new, It has been known since release the many armors do not share the same graphic for Male/Female toons.

Why is there not a limit to how many posts a person can make within a certain timeframe? I read post after post, with pretty much the same information every post coming from this guy. We know, we know, we've heard it a thousand times by now, you have a vaild point, please stop stating it. Your filling this thread and trolling it on purpose to piss people off, with garbage.

There is a large population of people who bought these items based on the preview, who had no clue they were going to change it. This is fact, I'm not trying to argue here. The devs have acknoweledged they have wronged these people and are going to fix it.

"Organize a decent post, and let it marinate a bit, come back, maybe do it again. Don't just try to get your name up on the Most Frequent Poster award."

I'm not arguing real legal issues here. Who the heck would sue over a digital product like this? I don't care that much. Point is both sides of each armor look have a reason to be upset over this situation is my only point. It would have made more sense for BW to fix the problem by leaving both versions in game some how after the initial screwup. Just hope I don't buy anything else off the GTN that looks different in some random picture some where on the internets and gets changed later.
K'mpek/Keypek or some variation
