Dear Bioware,

thank you for the update. I like this "showcase" feeling of the newly added stuff to the Cartel Market and think those blog articles are a great addition to your communication.

The only thing you should change in my opinion: Release this article _before_ the new stuff goes live. For example, there might be someone who would have bought some more of the stuff that was removed with the last update, if they had had a reminder about the removal...

Cheers, Niko

They did release the information , two weeks before they removed them. In fact I was annoyed that they weren't removed last week as I bought some of them off the GTN thinking they where vanishing the day after , but they stayed another week.

The speeder looks sick! Thought I would add that.

Cheers,

BadOrb.

I am definitely digging the new speeder. Hopefully we can see more of those with some color variety. As mainly a trooper, I am not a huge fan of the Sand people gear. It is nice variety though. However, as a subscriber, I want to see more Trooper gear available. Everything else is looking good though, I am certainly enjoying the adding of the Cartel Market.

I was looking foward to getting out of work to check out what was new in the CC, I like the idea of these appearance items...Just one thing I'd like to add, I'd like to see less of those transparent armors, and maybe give us the option to sell this stuff to a vendor...

Dear Bioware,

Can you please throw some "old" cartel market items onto the Collectors Edition Vendor. It's not asking for much and it would speak volumes to the people that have been asking for something since 1.2. (the last time you put something on the vendor).

It's also the end of January... the month where you specifically stated that the CE vendor would be discussed in your live stream.

Thanks for another Update Bioware.


I dearly hope however. You guys fully fix issues in your older items. though. I know the 1.7 fix. but that isn't Fixing Revans set being the wrong color on the chest(became grey in 1.6.1 instead of its black)and robes(auto equip is brown). and the second hood mesh bug. Please Fix Revans Set


I truly hope we see some Red Mandalorian Gear, some more all black Robes with the hood up, and more hood down brown robes in the future.

In my humble opinion, asking 1800 CC for a non account-wide speeder is getting rather ridiculous. If this is going to be a monthly thing from now on, it'd be nice to have some warning now before I even begin to think about making collector purchases that I will never be able to keep up with.

I like the work being put into these items, and they do have good quality, but a company should down right feel terrible for asking $18.00 for a single character unlocked mount. I get that the purpose is to make money here, but wouldn't you benefit more from placing player amusement before pure profit?

I don't like this new sole focus on one-off transactions that SWTOR and GW2 are now infatuated with. To me, these are predatory moves to take advantage of the gamer's collector mentality wrapped up in a silver bow made to look like new content. We, as a community, need to find a better balance between supporting a company through micro-transactions and the money grabbing that takes the player out of the fun, and instead forces them into worrying over the next new toy.

Dear Devs

I know it's kinda creepy or I dont know what to say but I'd love to see a Wookie Bowcaster in the CC soon, I know there was an event with that reward but I missed that event :'( and I'd love to use it on my vanguard and commando maybe an Imp char or make some fun weapons not just lightsabers and stuff , I mean like vibroswords, electrostaffs you know.

It sells. Why would/should they change it for your satisfaction? As posted in other threads, these prices are pretty much in line with current standards.
