just please ...don't add more of them, and never combine game systems with the cartel market again...ever

PS: Eric and the community team are really stepping up ..keep up the good work folks!
This game needs to work on its communication with the fan base :P and you guys have been doing a great job since you "took over", keep it up and may the force be with you.
Those changes are fantastic. It would be great if we could sell the certificates on the GTN, but this solution makes plenty of sense for a lot of people.

I think making the cartel tab separate from the other reps should satisfy the so-called "completionists," too. Now it will only be important to those who value the CM.

Looks like everyone wins with these solutions.

Id say along side the packs, add a few dailey quests were us players can earn some rep not just by buying it. But since there needs to be money made make it so the quests can only get you so far or you can only do them a limited number of times.

Those quests already exist. Run dailies and buy packs off the GTN. Poof. Quest for rep.

Assuming an average of 400 rep per pack (270 greens, 1440 purples, some distribution therein), it costs approx $400 to max this reputation.

After paying $400, either personally or through credits to people who paid some portion of that directly to the CM, this reputation still requires that you earned enough random BoP (soon to be BoL) certificates to purchase what you want. These cannot be traded, and despite the reputation being by Legacy, and the items being (soon) BoL, you still need to personally open yet more if you want the items (mount, armor, pet, etc) on more than one character in the Legacy.

This requirement for certificates when the reputation already requires using BoP trophies seems excessive, almost abusive.

Yes. You use the credits you get for dailies to buy cartel packs from the GTN. When you open the packs you will find the rep items inside. You get the rep items no matter how you purchase the packs.

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?
There needs to be a subscriber based reputation system, and all will be well. As long as it offers some nice looking gear pieces, maybe a mount and a pet, everyone will be happy again. Every month you are subscribed, you receive a rep trophy, the longer your subscription pass (ie, month to month, 3 month or 6 month) the bigger the reward.

I totally agrre with wath most players have said before me...
It's way to expensive to reach the legend status at contraband resale and now the bounty hunter supply.
However i do think it's a great idea to make people be able to buy some of the ultra-rare stuff from previous packs.
So i kinda have mixed feelings about this...
Perhaps if you'd lower the rating required to be able to buy some items like the throne or revan's mask to hero rating, it might be more succesfull?

Are you trying to get necro reputation points?

Also, it doesn't need to be lowered. If you care enough, you buy the packs. If you don't, you don't get the items. It's so simple, why do we get so many posts like this? Surely this can't be the only example in your life where you want something and have to decide if it's worth the money to you? Do you haggle in McDonald's?
