They gave out that extra 500 CC a few months ago and people complained about that. No matter what it is, people will complain about it.

Expecting anything for free when a game has an anniversary is stupid. Enjoy the game for what you earn. This is free stuff they are giving..be happy you got anything.

I don't know about you. I have received exclusive specialist ship not craftable and not avail anywhere except through the gift from Eve online as celebration for an event which I don't remember. And its a useful ship that perform a good specialist function and not just a vanity ship. I still remember it clearly till today because that is a good gift that instill genuine goodwill in the player's mind.

What about people who actually like fireworks? I'd like some Rakata reusable fireworks.

I actually like the fireworks from the 1st anni, used them all. But as gift, with the paint job, it is pretty lacking. And I am by no means one of the crazed, foaming at the mouth, detractors. But I do think it is a little absurd to say something like "ZOMG we love you guys for staying with us for 2 years, here's some awesome rewards!" paint job for a limited portion of the game, and fireworks. LOL. It isn't a big deal at all, not even deserving of a thread, but still funny. Good thing this game is awesome, or I'd be nonplussed.

Right? The fireworks are sweet. I buy the social glitter from time to time and other dumb crap like that.

I have to sort of agree. I'm glad they're giving us something free and I appreciate that, but this is for the two year celebration and all they could think of was this?

I'm disappointed in their imagination. Their are so many tings they could have giving or created that would have been exciting and interesting but this is just underwhelming.

Again, I'm not complaining that their giving me something that I don't want, I'm complaining that they just kind of dropped the ball on their own creativity.

They complain because the gifts seemingly have no thought behind them concerning the actual event they give them for. Bioware has more to celebrate than the players that this game survived two whole years in this market, why not show some damn enthusiasm and celebrate with us.

Lunafox nailed it. This is correct.

Yea, this is a joke right? Fireworks again? i still have all of the last fireworks you gave us. no one likes these gifts, a paint job on a ship that no on but you can see?. Its a simple code, don't go out of your way BW to do something good for your player base. AT least your not giving up some lame pet, sorry pets are worthless in this game. Yea, OK, I'm venting only cause I want to see something for my 2 year sub. Or better yet just don't give anything, its like a tip, if its not worth a crap don't offer it.

Well people complain no matter what they give them. Give them a pet? People whine because they don't use pets (I sure don't), give them a speeder and they whine that it's not as cool as the cartel market ones or that it isn't exclusive enough because now everyone has one (yes that was a complaint with the speeder we got recently), give them 500CC so they can buy something they want and it's not creative enough.
There is no winning for BioWare in this...

Honestly, if I was in charge, I wouldn't give the players anything for the 2nd anniversary... I'd ask what they were willing to give me since I have provided them with a game for 2 years...

1) I think it's nice that they are giving away something;

2) I think they didn't put any thought into it, but what's new.

The paint job only applies to those who are into the GSF, oh wait, and only PvP, which was a "let's shut them up" thing anyway. Honestly, the "free" armor was awful (not free because we sub) and GSF is for PvPers not the rest of us.

I love the game. I'm moving into the ball park that says that EA/BW needs to put some thought into customer appreciation.
