The sheer amount of shock and anger I feel for Bioware right now.

Your telling me I need a full set of whatever items I already own to unlock it via collections? ***?

I coulda sworn one of your goons did an interview with Dulfy over this system "Items will be bound individually yadayada, Revans mask to name one."

My example is this:
I bought the Eradicators Set, disliked and/or didn't need the belt or bracers at the time and sold them on the GTN for some extra creds right? Right, so 2.1 rolls out and apparently Bioware has gone back on their word.

I'll be damned if I buy another set off the market of the SAME item to unlock it for my entire account, who the HELL thought this was a brilliant idea? Did you not think your players would mix an match set pieces on characters to create a truly individual look? Is this not the point of 'customizing' your characters? To create a unique look?

No, instead of doing that Bioware, you went for the gosh darn cash cow manuever yet again, first the gambling packs, then the gambling DYE packs, now the limitations for the collection system.

So, with all that anger out of my system, I'd like to formally start a petition to do the following:
1) Unlock Items you ALREADY own and have their OWN unlock cost.
Example: You purchase the legs and boots of the Erad set, and nothing else, a new version of the collection menu allows you to buy JUST those items for unlock throughout your entire account.

If you have any constructive ideas, throw them in here as well. If you feel like sticking up for Bioware and saying this current system is so amazing yadayada, well I doubt you'll find much sympathy in this thread.

Eric Musco and Cory Butler, complicit in mishandling, misleading and otherwise giving a false answer to their customer base, fansite editor(s) regarding how 2.1's Collection System would be handled.

No wonder no one from Bioware apologized, or bothered to answer this thread, your actions speak louder than words.

PS: I DARE a CSR to pop in and apologize for Bioware going back on their word:

That's really lame if it's full sets and not item by item.

Thank you for your signature. Please vote for this thread as well and help bump it up top so Bioware sees it.

Other than Cathar, 2.1 has been a disappointment to me. Not being able to unlock individual items from collections, dye modules being random, and having a crystal in a saber not adding it to your collected items is a huge letdown.

My post from another thread:
This is not at all how the system was presented to us before now and I for one am extremely disappointed.

I really do believe that everyone at Bioware works very hard and wants this to be a great game... but honestly you continually fall short of that goal. I cannot think of a less user friendly or less useful way you could have implemented the dye and collection systems. They are both worse than similar systems other MMOs have had for years.

I suppose it is my fault for getting excited about 2.1 based on the previews given your track record. But frankly this is one subscriber who is very tired of constantly being let down.

Thats the problem isn't it though? It was presented one way, and now its this godawful other way that makes no sense and is completely insulting to paying consumers of their product.

Wow I made it to the thread about random dyes, but this is even stupider on BioWare's part.

Seriously, there's a flaw in BioWare Austin's collective decision making process, especially as it relates to the cartel market. It started on day one with all the insane F2P restrictions and it has continued all the way up to this.

So you're saying I should be able to go and buy the Eradicator's belt on the GTN for 25k, then unlock the full set via collections for me to receive all of the items free?

Never, ever gonna happen with EA.

At least allow us to track the individual items we've collected in a set.
I like to lurk

Just curious, what would make you think that was what the OP was asking for?
