edit- That mask sells readily for 1.5 to 2 Million credits, no way you posted it for 50 thousand and it lasted more than 10 minutes.
48 hours at 50k. It was after spending 48 hours at 100k. and another 48 hours at 200k.

Ive made about 30 million off packs, I have one of every crafting profession and I queue as a healer all the time, the average wait is between 5 and 15 minutes.

Def troll. if they'd said the Phantom, I might have bought it, those are still going for 150k+ on Pot5, but a Revan mask no way.

Yes, of course, I'm stupid. I'm stupid to have not bought the enchanted and mystical version of the game where the said crystals can be sold on the GTN.

Am i the only one who thinks that cartel packs is just another example how low Bioware ended?

It shouldnt ever be in game!
If you want give players Revan mask or really cool crystal just do it, make it a drop in some resonable hard operation, so there will be a point to run it and here we go.

I dont get this modern habbit to cut a games into pieces and then sell it separetly.

Its probably smart move from "product living cycle" perspective, but sucks when comes to making awesome games.

Because pure subscription models are failing all over the place. Where do you think the money for 1.7 and Rise of Hutt Cartel came from? People love gambling and buying things piecemeal. And even old school games that survived fine on subscriptions have added cash shops for vanity items. It's the way of the future.
