While Charles can say how this event is the best yet, with indepth story and how choices really matter!
Then they better lock down the stream comments p.

For D/L achievements aren't retroactive. Only achievements completed with characters made after 4.6 goes live count towards getting the D/L rewards. Does something done with a D/L character count towards the non-D/L achievement?

For example, a player ran the Mandolorian Raiders TFP 8 times before 4.6. Then creates a D/L character and does the Mando TFP once on that toon. That one time on the D/L character counts towards the Champion tier (if all criteria for the tier is met), but will that player also advance their non-D/L Mando TFP count by one, to 9?

No real Response here, but they do have the time to start sweeping under the carpet.

When LEGIT THREADS that were placed in answer to this Farce are silently being moved off-topic where they can die a Silent Death away from too many witnesses.

I would think so.

I doubt they will. They obviously have beans for brains and I'm sure they'll get called out for their lies this time.

I'm wondering since achieves on non-D/L characters are locked out. Will it work the other way around, too? Hopefully some questions will be answered by Devs. It's near the end of the third work day since posting info about D/L, and there's been nothing from the Devs on D/L except a few posts from Eric Musco on June 23.

If this thread gets unstickied without a Dev response, well, that's an answer in itself.

If they cheapen our rarest CM items I can't justify remaining subscribed in the face of such an insult.
I really have no sympathy for that. "Paid real money for a chance to acquire."? This so called "event" is giving the same chance as any other pack on the Cartel Market so it should be treated no different.

Let me put it to you like this: I already have the Revan Reborn Armor Set. I unlocked it to my account. If I got the entire set again because of this event I'd rather give it to my bf who wants it then destroy it.

They did more than move things to Off-Topic. But that's all I can mention... non-specifically.

That's the point, these 'packs' aren't from the Cartel Market; they're rewards for largely solo questing, which wouldn't be a bad thing if they'd leave our cash shop items out of it. It all depends on the drop chances and restrictions on these rare items I guess, but making a cash shop for exclusive items and then turning around and handing them out like candy is unacceptable.

How would you feel if you went out and bought an expensive Porsche very few people can afford, and then the next day the dealership announces a huge giveaway of a million of them to anyone who completes a simple list of tasks? Not one person who bought one before then wouldn't feel jipped, either out of the money because they found out they didn't have to pay it had they just waited, or of the exclusivity because now everyone has one. It's exactly the same thing here.

Most games keep their cash shops and main game rewards separate because they respect their paying customers. Until now, SWTOR was the same way. Guess it's back to WoW where Blizzard knows and respects the difference between the two.

But these aren't event exclusive items, they are items that have been available for 1+ years. To even call them exclusive to this event just shows how blanetly stupid this event was put together to put items that have been around for years plus recent pack items in these packs as possible drop items is NO different then buying a pack on the CM and having the same damn results. You get a possiblity of Upper, Lower, and Supplementary or the other items listed or not listed (as it does say "And More!"). You do NOT get a full armor set in the drop from my understanding, you get one of the three boxes and that's it it. So say you get 5 packs and you don't get all the parts to the armor set, just one, I'm not even saying it has to be an armor set you want, then you get the 10 pack and you don't get anymore of the parts. Or say you get the same drop everytime, highly unlikely but a good possibity.

So you are saying that's okay? Ha! I laugh at thee. :P

Also I find it insulting that you have the audacity to not even look at what I'd do with the Revan Reborn Armor Set if I got it again and who I'd give it to. Are you that heartless? I can't do something nice for my bf if the chance that I could arised. Sheesh this game is mesed up...
