Once you have max Cartel Reputation what are you supposed to do with your surplus Cartel Market Reputation Trophies?

Generally, I think this is cool and am excited for when I will be able to afford and use the Aratech Eclipse.

Why did you implement a new reputation grind that can only be progressed through paying real money? Why are the rewards for achieving status levels items that already exist in the game in previous cartel packs instead of new items?

What is the Cartel Market Reputation System?

We’ve added the Cartel Market Reputation System as a way of rewarding players who purchase multiple packs within a Shipment. Each Shipment will have its own Reputation track.


Lol, does this mean what I think it does? You're going to have even more of these 'Cartel only' Reputations in future Shipments??????

Have you guys been reading the feedback on this by any chance?

The first one wasn't overly popular and it was released yesterday, you're going to have more in the future? What future ingame reputation systems will subscribers get?

I found it offensive against subscribers, and needs to be removed ASAP before it hurts us more

So are the Cartel rep trophies and certificates going to be unbound so that they can be bought and sold on the GTN?

From the blog post:
Quote:
since there are always Credits to be made*
*does not apply to reputation trophies or certificates because it would decrease EA's profits if players could sell these items to other players and not have to buy them for themselves with their own money
