Evidently it is too much trouble to give us a 1 paragraph post explaining things. Bioware has acted like amateurs since this game launched. I dont know if management has been driving the poor customer service or what. This is the worst kind of social engineering. It will only drive people from the game.

They increased the chances of the big drops and eliminated the junk (which people complained about filling inventory) and this is bad?

Then they could have atleast allowed us to put up the speeder parts on GTN.

I kind of see both sides of this. Getting rid of the mods and gear should help crafters and keep inventories somewhat manageable during a dig (as well as help fight credit inflation), but there is no way a lvl 10 gray should deplete a dig site--purples only.

I'm loving the changes, I had given gave up previously. In 2 hours of searching I found 2 speeder parts, 2 crafting crates, 1 piece of armor and maybe 1-2 pieces of junk...perfect. You even need a modicum of skill to find the treasure now. Well done Bioware.

Yes, thank god. In the last 2 hours I've gotten 3 crates, and 7 parts! It's been great. So much better than before.

I used to hate it back when I played the game, but the seeker droids actually make me yearn for it...
Also, posted in the bug reports section here, but I guess everything is working as intended.
You need to believe in things that aren't true. How else can they become?

And now, as of today, I can make 10 credits selling my extraordinairy grey treasure. Why, oh why?
Seems like my sentiment. I got into seeker droid hunting ONE WEEK. It was a lot of fun, and now they ruined it already? DAMMIT.

You still may do those things for specific rewards(speeder parts, legacy shells, space comms), but don't count on any rewards you used to get. And for seeker droid it means no rewards at all unless you actually manage to find something.
Yeah, they did nerf space missions too much. And now they want to nerf another pasttime. Why they spend so much time adding these things and then just mindlessly kill them in a single patch baffles me.

Yes, I found 5 speeder parts (of which one double), but no, I doubt I will complete any of the speeders since I wont dig anymore till I see the change reverted. What's bad with digging up some thrash and making some money, that's what HUNTING is about no? Now just no fun. Yup, a lot finds are 5 credit thrash. Yes, often you get close, then suddenly get 3 red negatives before they find it. Heck, the 'creature' is the best find since it actually GIVES you something.
If this was just to please artifice-crafters (although the one in my guild is pissed since he doesn't know where to get green 28 to RE now), remove THOSE items and replace them with the new. Just... not murder the entire seeker droid finding like this.

It was fun before, now it's not. No amount of speeder parts changes that. Most people will now just dig up the speeder, and move on. If that really is your intention, BioWare, I suppose you did right. But you ruined a perfectly good side-game in the process just to appease those people. Very dissapointed. VERY.

I am not very happy about this either... the sellable stuff actually made it worth to start digging "just because" and have some fun.
But the speeder-parts and the armor alone are not really enough incentive now. I LOVED having the seeker-droid return stuff I can use or sell, because it was something else to do without feeling like I just wasted the time because nothing intereted came from it anyway...

Please, Developers, look into this... the new setup is great if you are after the special stuff specifically, but if you just want to dig around for fun, the Seeker Droid is a non-entity now.
