As an additional tease, we have something coming to the Cartel Market later this month that is going to be super, super cheap and available for one day only! All I will say for now is hang on to 10 Cartel Coins and look for details soon™.

While its nice to receive a gift of Cartel coins I can't help but feel that you may have missed the point of what subscribers weren't happy about.

The majority of Cartel coins are purchased by subscribers in effect allowing BW to double dip, getting revenue from the subscription and a second time selling coins to the subscriber to get items only in the Cartel market. Only of late there appear to be very very few updates to the game so what is the subscription purchasing? Cartel market items seem to be appearing every week but all this is, is fluff. Where are the game updates?

Of late we have had one update that is only of interest to hard core raid guilds (nightmare modes) offering no new experience other than a few new boss mechanics. And the update before that being an image kios allowing you to change your characters look but no new content. Before that was a purchase digital expansion without which you saw the levels of content shrink and outside of it for level 55's rehashed flash points with very minor changes to the mechanics. Heroics space missions have had their rewards reduced to the point I doubt many people bother with them.

Other than buying fluff from the Cartel market it seems on the whole little is being done to keep subscribers interested or encourage them to keep subscribing.

same thing with Ewok being purchasable by anyone on the CM lol. But you're right, I don't see the subscriber appreciation with new players being able to buy it as well. First the Ewok, now this. Hah

I'm pretty sure it's going to be grossly expensive for non-subs and incredibly cool. Which I'm ok with.

We were given 500 coins free. Packs are 160 each. It's like 3 free packs, and people STILL are not happy. Likely the same type of people who make sure they have gift receipts with their Christmas and BDay presents so they can return them for something else. Not sure when people stopped being appreciative.
