Maybe they will take the caps away if we all complain about them. I think they did it backwards. They should have capped the people that are 55 or above, and let the others catch up to them, if they truly wanted to level the playing field.
A true MMORPG gives you a world and a ton of options and you just need to find your place in it.

This we want you to follow a path in a mmorpg is beyond rediculious,i've given feedback on this subject many a times,but if we as a community say we dont want this than they pretty much have to change it,it is about making money after all.

I think they flat out need to remove the limitations completely and let us play how we want,operation lock outs are plenty fine with restricting progression for the week

Like they don't want us to spend to much time enjoying a certain character/class.
This makes sense to me.

I too have a healer that I played with for a day before I had reached the cap and since then I haven't played at all on her.

I finished all the PvE Weeklies except the World Bosses on my 55 Jugg Tank so I guess I'll just go level my Marauder or Powertech to 55 to start sending more Jugg Tank gear through the Legacy.

I'd rather not do it that way but I'm having a hard way of getting more Elite comms at the moment.

It will settle down though.
A lot of people still have tokens, the OP mentioned this as well. And more importantly, you wont be doing this stuff for long, once you hit 55, the new FP's open up, and the daily on makeb for the better comms, and the basic comms gear will be coming pretty quickly, so the classic comms will be basically become the old tionese crystals, not wanted nor hunted.
Within a month, this will be a non issue.

Many topics have been created and we still didn't get no answers about it.

I get 200 comms in 2 hours. So yes it's a waste.

Also don't buy something and return it or get it returned via in-game ticket as it counts against your weekly total. So those 28 un-used patterns I still have, I'll never be turning in as I already hit this weeks 200 cap on the 1st day. Even if the CS agent gave me back the item I sold by mistake instead of commendations (which was pre-2.0 purchased by about 5 minutes) I still would of hit my weekly. I can understand why they want to limit what you make per week or why they want to cap your totals overall, but how much I play one toon and then forced to play alts or not do anything else for the rest of the week has become most everyones main focus.

Didn't they change that back when the PTS was still up? I know that, initially, buying something and returning it counted against the weekly limit, but I was pretty sure this was changed.


Also, I don't think this will be as much of an issue at the true endgame, because I don't think the Basic/Elite/Ultimate Comms drop as much as the Classics. But something really should be done about the Classic Comms limit, because the level 50 HM FPs and Dailies hand the things out like candy. I hit the limit in one day with two sets of dailies, a couple hard modes, and one unassembled Columi token. Is that really all Bioware wants us to do in a week?

Based on warning messages from classic comms when I turned in my dailies to jump start levelling, while the system gives you a warning for things like that I don't think it's actually supposed to count against your weekly total. If it actually stops you from earning more I'd file a bug report.

The weekly cap on Classic Commendations will be removed in an upcoming patch.

Incidentally, there is currently a bug that causes the game to warn you that you've exceeded your weekly cap even when you are at 0 in your weekly progress (it's erroneously looking at your total commendations). Make sure you check the actual weekly progress value displayed in your currency tab.

Once you hit the weekly limit it does alter the amount you receive. I noticed it during SM KP. Looted a Boss and got 2 Classic Comms. Right above (or below) that text was a line that said that the value has been changed to 0 because I have reached my weekly limit. So yeah, 200 a week and that's it.

I really can't see how much it should affect me. I looked at all the gear I can buy with Classic's. I honestly only saw 1 Relic that worked for me ( the Mender relic). Unless i missed something somewhere, I didn't see much that I would actually be buying.

And lastly, where is it I can turn in the Columi Pieces for the Classic comms? I have 2 of them that I saved, where do I turn them in?
