Are you kidding me? This game should be renamed to Coin Wars: The Cartel Republic. Maybe release an expac and call it Rise of the Reskinned Republic.

No wonder why lots of other people in the mmo community call this game a cash grab. I want to love swtor so much more but its sad to see EAware just milking this game until its no longer profitable. Before anyone asks, profitability ≠ quality. This games quality has just been going down and down since f2p. Many armor sets from the gen 3 and 4 packs lack quality and besides the toys and emotes and some mounts there's really nothing that wows you that comes out of the CM.

If you don't like it DON'T BUY THEM!

No one is forcing any player to buy the cartel packs. It's not a requirement to play the game. Nothing stops working if you don't buy cartel packs.

So take a chill pill and play on.

Right, he didn't say he'd be forced to buy the packs did he?

I believe his point is more like, when was the last time they updated anything like the PvP vendor items? Lightside Vendors items? Operation loot drops? FP loot drops?

They have all this amazing stuff they can pump out every few weeks, yet they can't add any of it to the GAME itself as incentive for actually PLAYING the game? THAT is what sucks so much about the CM imo...those items should eventually make their way in-game imo.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Au contraire. I actually like quite a few of the armor sets from the last two packs.

Also, I can't take anybody seriously who intentionally states the development company's name wrong.

I agree with you, TUXs. Bad enough the CM exists imo, but the fact that playing the game doesn't get you anything different from the CM. Reskins? Who cares. I'd rather see incentivized play from rewards in order to reduce queue times. Doubt it will ever happen since the CM is a cash grab, but it really destroys the integrity of the game itself.
