because selling good looking gear for real money instead of making it droppable, isn't a cop-out.

A fix to make everyone happy seems rather simple to me.

Create a NPC vendor on fleet called "Sori Formistak" and have him utilize the PVP vendor system that requires the shell of say WH gear to be traded in for EWH.

Make the now fixed versions of the armor tradable in for the "bugged"versions you make as separate "MK-2" variations of the gear, obviously without the added comms price.

Presto, whoever wants to have the old look can simply turn the fixed gear in. Whoever likes the new look doesn't.

Everybody is happy and people actually like you cos the NPC name shows you can man up to your mistakes and take/make a joke at your own expense.

That's what many people suggested since the very first minutes this happened. This system is already ingame with other piece of equipment (like top tier PvP), how difficult can it be???

I support this as well.

Though you know that people will still complain having to re-augment these items, as you would with War Hero gear. So possibly, Bioware is checking first if they can offer the trade with augment slots?

Just make the swapped gear come with an augment sot. This way your only loss is the augment extraction (to be done prior to swapping).

That's great and all - but you're terrible at taking screenshots. Here's a tip, when you're screenshotting your char and she's wearing dark colors, don't stand in front of a dark wall. Find a well lit area, with contrasting colors, so you stand out. Can't see your toon at all in there, except for maybe the legs and the outline of the head.

Also, crop your image (even if you just use paint) so that the focus is on your character and not the background

P.S. I'd say most of us who want the "incorrect" look aren't asking for the "correct" look to be removed from the game - rather that the "incorrect" look be re-introduced as a separate item. And then some stuff about reimbursing.

This, the most popular suggestion on this matter seems to be the trade-in vendor. And the last official Bioware post (I think it's on page 82) mentions that they'll do their best to make all people happy.

Ofcourse, there's always the occasional "winner takes it all mentality" person around here. I always wish such people to loose, whether I'm on the same side or not.
