Thinking about this concern more makes me think that, on another note, maybe their metrics show that the nature of RNG has been Exciting™?

Sorry, but earning boxes faster when they are dropping nothing but worthless garbage does not solve the problem. Earning more worthless junk per hour does not give me an incentive to grind years old content. Looks like my decision to give ESO a try was the right one, they will be getting my sub money in place of SWTOR. They have an alternate advancement system beyond max level too but it does not revolve around boxes of useless garbage.

Yup, you still get them every 4,990 CXP, your level just stays at 300.

Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing here to address the primary concerns with GC's RNG based gearing. More crap boxes faster is just more crap. We have given you all sorts of suggestions to fix the end game gearing experience. Mine is here, http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=911737 . None of them include keeping GC as the primary end game gearing system.

I am sorry to see that BWA refuses to actually listen to customer complaints and instead keeps running with a system those paying customers have plainly said is not working and is not acceptable. I wish you luck, but I don't expect things to work out well for the game or the people employed to run it.

I had already removed my payment info. I have now unsubbed and given my feedback.

In this set of changes, not yet. We are still looking into Crate contents to see where changes should be made. It would be a much more substantial change from our side to update the contents and so although we are definitely open to doing so, we wanted to take these steps first.

April eh? No chance the timing is to cling to subs until quarterly report time, is there?

Thank you for addressing this concern Eric. I appreciate it. That being said, does this mean that changes like this that would be considered substantial can only be expected in what could be considered a substantial patch (like a Game Update 5.2, 5.3, etc)?

Too little too late. This should be implemented 10 days after 5.0 launch. And we have to wait 4 weeks when u need like 3 days to change it, this is a joke.

So what you are saying is, you will give us this "leveling event" for CXP until 5.2 goes live so we can get more Command Ranks, but the quality of the Command Crate content still remains the same.

How exactly is this helpful in any way for people to get their setbonus gear? This doesn't increase the chances, it just technically allows you to pull the slotmachine lever more often in a given amount of time.

I appreciate the straight answer Eric. Thank you.
