Edit:

You know, y'all can defend this "fix" all you want. Maybe you'll help EA remain convinced this was a good "fix". And the rest will leave, as so many have done before them.

So keep defending bad EA decisions and ultimately they're going to keep making them until they make one that negatively impacts your experience. At that point, will you fight for the game or just leave? And if you choose to fight, how many will be left to help you with that fight?

So when you run a new fp or op you don't have to adapt to the mechanics?

Oh you must just never do that since you don't want to adapt to a thing, or if you do, you're that guy that stands in fire and goes Y AM I DIEING Y IS HEALER NOT HEALING ME, SO NOOB

What do you do when your class gets nerfed? you have to adapt to that, do you just stop playing?

There is definitely a bug though, the other night while running with a PUG on the gree event we wiped (don't get me started) and I had 0 repair costs... then the next time I had 30k in repair costs... so something is definitely not right in repair land... and I repair after every death (repair droid FTW).

Oh and that 30k was on one of my new alts that was in rakata/columi/tionese blend with no augments yet... so yea... something is odd.

Again as i said earlier, talking about fixing a bug is one thing, but the people just complaining about the price saying it's too much. that's different.

If there is a bug and if the costs are higher then intended, that's fine, they can fix it. However if these costs are what they intended, then they are what they intended and people just need to adapt to it

Oh there definitely could be a bug. Its BW I bet there is. But the repair cost is going to remain higher even with the fix when it comes. So might as well just get used to it imo lol.

Was the 0 repair death due to a fall or something the game could have seen as a fall?

So is it possible to avoid repair bills by just jumping off cliffs right before the mob/boss kills you?

There is a difference between adapting to a change in mechanics or adapting to a difficult challenge then adapting to an arbitrary cost whose increase provides no increase in difficulty only increase in overhead.

For example if there were now a tax each time you started an operation of 300k credits you bet everyone would be in arms about it and rightfully so. Doesn't mean I won't just pay it and move on with my life, but it is just a bad design decision.

Falling deaths do not (seem to) damage gear. Any damage the mobs/boss did to your gear before the fall kills you would probably still be there.

EDIT: Also the Repair button is disabled if you do not need repairs, so the report of the 0 repair cost is... interesting.
