I swear I remember the game director describing in the last developer youtube video that there would be a second subscriber appreciation, err, gesture, at the end of July.

Any news on this Bioware? Or was that the cartel market title?

um. that would require them actually "appreciating" their sub players and putting more thought into it than a small cc grant to try and get them to buy more cc for the CM to get something

I got 500 extra cc's, I would have thought that was it.

Here's the quote

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™.

So there was a subscriber appreciation 500 cartel coins on the 4th, then the Reven's Heir title mid-month.

That's it.

I believe this is correct. I remember a quote from pre-summer of SWTOR, to the effect of there being a second subscriber appreciation gift towards the end of summer.

Strictly speaking, the Revan title wasn't subscriber only.

My guess would be that since many of the vocal minority on the forums were up in arms about cartel coins not being a good enough gift for them, BW decided not to give us anything ever again. Ever.

I'll browse the forums to see if I can find that original quote as well.

EDIT :

Found the quote from the live stream event on TORWARS:

Quote:
During the LiveStream Q&A something was mentioned about subscriber appreciation. To give you a bit of a back story, one of biggest concerns of Subscribers has been feeling undervalued. Jeff Hickman himself addressed these feelings saying:
“…that it’s super important” to BioWare that their Subscribers as well as their Free-to-play players feel valued. So, in July, there will be a Subscriber only benefit near the beginning and near the end of the month in order to make Subs feel valued.”

I don't believe that is true:

My goal was to get the info about the title out to subs on the same day as the CC grant though so that if you wanted to get the title you could just save 10 coins. This way you would be able to get it just from those extra coins!

That said, I am not very hopeful there will be a second subscriber appreciation as many believe there will be.
