I'm not complaining about the CC. It's a nice little bonus. However, it's not a good "appreciation" gift. It feels like a bandaid more than a gift. It's like giving your girlfriend flowers when you screw up. If you only give them when you screw up, it's not appreciation, it's hide-covering.

Now, if this is a frequently recurring gift, that's a different story. If they do something nice (and different) each month, that's a different story. But to feel appreciated, we need something a little more special than what amounts to a 5$ coupon.

I also hope that every single subscriber can log in to get the one-day-only super surprise. I'm going to be out of town quite a bit this month, and if I miss it, I know that won't help me feel appreciated. All this is doing is reinforcing that the CM is the be-all and end-all of this game.

???? Is how I feel. Seems like the item should have been out the same time everyone got told they were getting the free cartel coins.
Secondly how great will this item be. It seems that one of the big issues BW seem to have is over hyping things. When we are told about big annoncements we all assume huge big and get a small thing people guessed at. Same goes for the appreciation and things like it. They seem very good at getting people agry by making things some bigger than they are and when we get them we feel disappointed.

All of you should be receiving your 500 coins today. 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™.

Soon, however, does not refer to the 10cc item releasing, only details upon it. Based on that fact, along with the signature Rakghoul smily-face of Eric Musco, I'm going to guess Galnar was right.

Question is, what is it? What could possibly be worth 10cc, related to KotOR? HK-47 customization for HK-51? Heart of the Guardian crystal? Mantle of the Force crystal? KotOR-related title? KotOR-related emote?

Hey don't get mad at me, because you refuse to accept the truth. I would love to see Revan's outfit in Black but Bioware has made it clear they want it as Light Grey, so it's gonna be Light Grey.

That's why I have lowered expectations, I log in and play the game for my entertainment. Everything else is icing on the pie.
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?

In response to what you are going to say, no. .. It's not because people are qqers, It's because BioWare doesn't listen to the community.
LOL Why should we be grateful to Bioware? If there's someone here that should be grateful, it's Bioware and their staff...

We are giving them money every month... what they give to us is just fair and right. And Bioware are getting insults and abuse because they're not delivering the content subscribers want. Subscribers have every right to complain, and say stuff to Bioware.

I think people forgot the fact that we are the one putting money in Bioware's pocket. it should be them being grateful.. not us...

Though Bioware needs to work hader because 500 Cartel Coins is not good enough to show their appreciation.

There is a difference between being a dissatisfied customer looking for better content and giving constructive feedback and being a DBag that just puts them down while trying to explain their frustration. Turns out, polite and constructive gets noticed first, and the dbag is left wondering what just happened.

You see... I understand how your mind works now. You don't think about the bigger picture. I noticed this when you completely ignored what EricMusco said about the details being released soon. Your mind only saw what you wanted to see. You saw "getting a new item today" even though he didn't say that at all.

Just like when EricMusco didn't say he was happy with light Grey. He was happy that the colors matched(both bug versions). Instead you saw only what you wanted to see. You saw this: "we like light grey and you will all have to deal with it".

This stems from your statement that we should be grateful we are getting rewarded. You are so close-minded that even if someone showed you concrete evidence, you would stand by your own belief.

We've seen what those dissatisfied customer did right? They unsubscribed and was a loss to Bioware. Now, will this 'subscriber appreciation reward' going to keep them longer? Maybe not.

Why should they work harder? It's obvious that nothing they do will be a good enough reward to people like you.
