For all the secrecy around the sub appreciation announcement...500CC is a bit, how do you say, underwhelming? I do understand that something is better than nothing, but come on...they can do better than that. If this was the idea all along, they should have just said so. Throw us a unique class weapon...mount...companion skin. But 500CC?

Well, wait. This was specifically done to address the issue that subscribers don't feel all that special compared to FtP or Premium players. Is this a one time grant, or will subscribers now get 1000 Cartel coins a month? If there will be a permanent CC increase, and prices in the shop stay as they are, then I say that is certainly a very generous and effective way to show your appreciation to your customers.

If not, I can't help but think that this whole think was kind of rushed together.

You said Packs not pack which means more than one. It would have been one thing to say pack but you said packs. There is a difference.

Your words not mine:

Packs are 160 each. It's like 3 free packs

Are you always so defensive when you respond to posts especially when I also stated I had no problems with the cartel coins?

Well, I don't really mind that the appreciation is only 500 CC, since I sub the game because I like it rather then get some free stuff.

BUT, what I mind, is this one day gift thing. Seriously, it's summer. I will head out for a big LARP Event starting Saturday the 20th and won't return till Sunday the 28th. What's the answer if that gift releases during that week? I am a loyal subscriber since launch, but I won't just look while you make such a stupid decision.

Also, the CM stuff is really just lame at the moment. Instead of brining some things people have been asking for (Kel'dor/Nautolean/Any other race (And now don't give me "That's much work!" thing, that's what the devs are payed for, doing development work.) , Movie Lightsabers (Obi Wans Lightsaber, Lukes Lightsaber, Vaders Lightsaber and Co., or traditional Jedi robes or some Sith Armor (You know, maybe the dark set with bone things and torn cloth that Exar Kun wore in the Timeline Video, or the Jedi set Cay Qel-Dorma wore in the Timeline video.

Instead of giving us some of those famous outfits, you give us the Huttsbane and Turncoat stuff. I have yet to encounter a single person, be it Pve,PvP or RP that wears the Turncoat outfit.

Bioware, start getting serious please. Why not give us a title ("Loyalist" for example.), a Pet (Maybe one of the spacecraft series, but just a special one. How about a small capitol ship of our faction?) or even a very special Blaster/Lightsaber hilt. Please, start getting some ideas. That special item can't be much since it's only 10CC. What is it? Another Life day Orb?

With this, I want to say: Even if 500CC are a nice thought, I have nothing I'd really spend them on.

My feeling over this is a huge... *sigh*.
I love Star Wars, I love this game, I'm one of those nerds with the preorder bonuses and Collector's Edition and Security Key - I love the experience and the worlds and the LIGHTSABERS! I have never complained about not feeling appreciated, I'm kinda easy going that way, but I was disappointed to find out subscribers get nothing more than unlimited access to the game (and of the limitations put on f2p, only a few can't be remedied with in game credits). Cartel Coins might be a more meaningful gesture if they went farther for subscribers than for f2p - but as it is, we are just as milked for our money as they. There are no loyalty rewards or subscriber benefits in this game- nothing enduring or even noteworthy. Yes, I have played on friend's f2p account, and there are differences - but mere conveniences. For me, extra content isn't necessary; titles are next to meaningless - how to they affect gameplay? -pets are annoying and I'd likely turn it off- how many of us actually ever use our Party Jawa? We throw it in our bank and let it and all our 'perk' toys wither. Give us something that identifies us a loyal subscribers- people paying you money, not for a cartel pack or any other purchase, but because we have faith in you and want you to know we appreciate your game. Something subscriber only- not just coins to spend on stuff anyone can get. Weapons & crystals & mounts & outfits & character design options- things we can all see every second we are playing - that are not available to a f2p with credits to buy it off the Galactic Market.
TL : DR... I allowed myself to get excited over this potential appreciation... and suffered a huge disappointment. My fault, I know.

Do you always get so defensive when you are the one that made the mistake? You said packs which means more than one. You did not say pack which means one you said packs thereby sounding like it was more than one. So the person in the wrong is you by using the wrong wording. When it is one you use the singular form of the word and no one would think you meant more than one. When you use a plural form of a word it therefore leads anyone reading it to think you mean more than one.

So by what you state she was correct in thinking you meant more than one since you said packs (the plural form of pack).

I agree. The 500 CCs seems like a free deal so that we can afford the 10 CC item when it comes. To me, the 10 CC item seems more like the appreciation gift.....course that's all depending on what it is. And the fact that TOR is 10 years old (holy moses..LMAO) on the 15th and the item is only 10 CC for 10 far too coincidental to not be tied in with this.
