Well, reported for harassment.



Stop harassing me.



Your opinion.
This is really funny. So you have a right to call us lazy and goad us into replying to a thread with an inflammatory title but we are not aloud to call you out? My what a double standard you showcase. And for the record he is not harnessing you he is just telling you exactly how you act. Difference.

This game is turning into a damn shop.
I don't get it?? You are complaining about getting an additional 500cc above and beyond your normal grant?? Seriously?? Sorry but that isn't entitled, that is just plain stupid.. Only subscribers got the extra 500cc..

The item that will be really cheap on the CM for a single day has nothing to do with subscriber appreciation.. It is about the celebration of KOTOR's 10th anniversary.. Yes, that is feeling entitled.. Again also stupid..

As for the game turning into a shop?? I just don't agree..

I didn't respond to the rest of your post because it is obvious that you just aren't paying attention..

OPs not looking for subcriber appreciation. they're looking for F2P deprecciation. something they can use to rub their "superior" status in the face of F2P players

I'm glad someone sees this as well.
Ayelinna, you are not beyond breaking the very rules you contend to cherish and enforce. The evidence is the multiple quotes that you have posted that have been removed, including a few i called you on when you had, in fact broke the rules.

Your not helping the validity of your posts or your reputation by behaving in this manner. Grant it I also see you getting attacked quite a bit, and that puts you on the offensive of course.

I've been there myself.

But you have, in fact, tried to dictate how others should play, have called players "stupid" or "lazy", directly insulted those that use the market or like it, etc.

Naturally most of the proof can't be provided because the posts were removed. But I quoted at least two of your posts that were direct violations of the rules.

You can defend yourself. But you should make sure you remain within the forum rules when you do so.

To your OP, I do think it is a good idea to throw something other than coins at the subs, some kind of unique item, recognition or title. I don't see any harm in granting a thank you recognition item to subs considering some of the things that have been added to the CM lately.

Just my opinion of course.

In my opinion money was the perfect gift to me.

Some speeder or pet which every subscriber had gotten, would have been bound to raise threads of "why does this thing look so ugly" and "a speeder ? that is all ?" and the likes.

Any piece of clothing would raise similar threads. (I still remember the "special item" I got for my Rift account after meeting the devs on GamesCon 2011... it was so damn ugly, that noone in my guild wanted it).

But with cartel coins, everyone can decide what to buy. Get a pack... get 2 color packs... get a new hairstyle... get some item with discount, that you would normally had to wait another month for...

Seriously, a money gift was the perfect thing to do.

I believe you'd fit the description of an ungrateful elitist. You got something for nothing and you have the gull to demand something else because what you got wasn't special or didn't set you apart from the free players.

Seems to be a growing trend on the forums as of late, I'm a subscriber! I should get something special that sets me apart from all the other snow flakes!

Which is ironic when you consider a subscriber might only provides $15 a month vs a free player who could easily double that in a week.

Lastly, "Game is becoming a cash shop." Well welcome to free to play. You all wanted it so here it is in all its glory.

First, it's not something for nothing. It's something because you have a subscription. It really costs BW nothing to just give you CC. They don't have to design anything, patch anything or make a new system. This is a half assed way to say thank you to subscribers who want more content.

Will I take it? Sure. But being a sub, and having money, if I want something I just buy it anyways. This doesn't really help out all that much as there is not a lot on the CM that I want to buy atm.

Sure, don't look a gift horse in the mouth, but you can't deny that it is kind of a crap way to show you care. I mean try it on your wife/husband/gf/bf. Hey honey, I know it's our anniversary, I got you a gift card to walmart because I know you do the grocery shopping there.

You may not like that people are kind of rejecting the 500CC. But you have to see it through our eyes and stop calling people names. It's rather annoying. Especially when we're talking about subjective crap that is different for everyone.

Try the following on your gf/bf/wife/husband then:
Hey honey, I know you were saving up for that expecive jewelry/tv/screen/car, but instead of helping you with that by adding on to the funds you already got, I bought you this nice pullover/dog(that you will take for a walk each day from now on!).
I surely do prefer the money.

Bioware had absolutely no chance to make a gift that the majority of players would be happy with. So giving us money to spend in any way we want, they at least did not give us a pullover or socks or a new tie.

And then imagine your gf/bf/wife/husband saying: "Thanks, but I already bought (enter whatever) last week". So I do not prefer money. Well, not even money, fake money that buys digital stuff that can be reproduced on demand. Just saying, if they wanted to show us they cared in this situation, they should have built us a terrible mount. At least then I would have given them credit for giving a present rather than a gift card.

And if you're happy with it, that's cool. I'm just pointing out that people should not be angry with other people who are not as thrilled that's all.
