Yeah, I kind of get the idea that this is their plan (based on the last premium dye cycle that ran on the CM recently).

The real question seems to be the timing interval. I think they should just announce an interval and stick with it, even if they don't specify which dyes are posted in advance.

Personally, I think they are deliberately walking a delicate line on this. Why? Because if they list them too often, the in game trade prices plummet and people who bought them all along at large premiums will be filling the forum with tears and anguish.

I'm a realist...I'm not going to sit here and complain about something that's not going to change...and then be all upset about it.

I going to buy the damn item for the price it's set at and have fun right now.

Red-Green dyes would look good on BH gear (Boba Fett), Purple-Pink would look good for female Sith, and Black-Black would look good on most imperial characters, and troopers and smugglers.

But I will never pay the prices on GTN for them, they really are too high.

if people stop purchasing the dyes at 15 dollars for a single use, they will stop selling them at that price.

But our forums are usually filled with tears and anguish because someone didn't get their way. More frequently is fine by me, when I finally need one I'll buy it.

I have no personal use for Black/Black either. But I do like a number of the dyes where black or white forms one of the two colors.

And yes.. there are some seriously ugly color combinations IMO.

But I disagree that there are not other good dye combinations already in release, many at reasonable prices on the GTN too. I personally find the White/LightOrange, LightOrange/White, Blue/Black, Black/Blue, DarkBlue/LightBrown, and DarkGreen/MediumBrown to work very well with many gear sets.

I've not been impressed by many of the newer dyes released through the cartel packs, but I have to say the recent DeepBrown/Black is nice as well.

On a different note, I am making a truck load of money buying and relisting dyes these days. The market prices vary greatly over time on Harbinger and there is a lot of money to be made by simply keeping tabs on the market and buying bargains and holding them for later relisting.

That is all, thank you.
Coincidentally, we had already planned to bring black/black dye back during double XP! I don't have the exact timing in hand right now, but you will see the black/black then. I will let you know when I get more details.
