Will there be a limit on how many cartel coins you can purchase on that first try that gets 50% off? Will I be limited to the maximum $39.95 package of 5,500 coins or can I buy multiples of that package all at once and get them *ALL* at 50% off?

If I can get more than 5,500 coins at 50% off I'm tempted to buy like 100K coins and not have to worry for a *LONG* time.

I personally don't see how this couldn't have waited until next week with the bug fixes like was originally planed, also nice going on implementing after the dye mods were up would have rather they were left there as a bonus to subs with the first purchase discounts but nvm, I'm just curious as to why they would implement without any patches seems like maintenance for the fun of it is all.

To add onto this, couldn't you register multiple F2P accounts to take advantage of the 50% off 1st time and just mail the items over after 36hours?

L2 Read, they said subscribers only, means you had to be subscribed before the patch. Geez. But i think it might be possible, that you can purchase certain amount of coins through the game, or they might just make it so you can purchase certain items for certain amount of coins, which will be deducted from your payment option, but i doubt that.

I know some people who managed to buy cartel coins (with the 50% discount) when it was briefly activated last time. Will they get a second bite at discounted coins?

Not that I'm jealous or anything...

There's been a slight delay in beginning this morning's maintenance. We'll be sure to post updates if the server will be unavailable beyond the posted time of 5AM PST (1PM GMT).

So now you've taken the server off air earlier with no count down? Bioware on fire lately with maintenance....

Would have been nice to have a countdown before the servers went down.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the lack of in-game notice before you guys were kicked today! Luckily, we were able to give you a few more minutes of time than intended before shutting down.
