They aren't P2W, you know. They merely *accelerate* getting to higher levels of command rank. There isn't an upper limit that you can only exceed by buying them (let's say, for example, that you couldn't get from 299 to 300 without one - that would be P2W(1)).

(1) Sort of. It's possible to get T4 gear without being Command Rank 300, but if you *also* couldn't buy / use T4 gear without being rank 300, *then* they absolutely would be P2W. Except that the boosts don't cost *real* money. They cost CCs, and subscribers get enough CCs included in their subscription that it isn't a worry.

Very sad the one chiss armor (outlaw) is removed without becoming unlockable. I buy that one for all my chiss characters with CEDF background for rp purposes.
Another nail in the coffin for me. Pvp lost all interest once the rewards you could work towards were removed in favor of random drops, I have done every bit of pve in the game, and now rp is getting hobbled too.

I appreciate the heads up about the item embargoes. And, being given a week's notice. Thanks!

I've been hemming and hawing about getting the Cavern Varactyl for a while. Time for me to make a decision about it.

Agreed. Cartel Market 100% CXP boosts are P2W. Sure there are 100% CXP boost tokens available from vendor. However at 190 command tokens each: LOL

Also we - the survivors of 5.0 - deserve a Double CXP Summer.

See above. Can you reach T4 without them? Yes. It's not P2W. P2W would be if the only way to acquire and equip T4 gear was to buy stuff on the CM. Or maybe for actual factual real world money directly.

Sigh.

I wouldn't get your hopes up, but I still think that this is a high possibility! At least, we might also get more KOTOR sets, but yes, I would put my money on "traditional Jedi robes" being included in the new sets, specifically because they're removing two Jedi sets from the CM. New Jedi robes are almost a sure thing to be one of the replacements.

Now, I gotta decide if I want to buy the "freezing" emote, or the CZ-13K Guerilla armor set. I've been tempted buy that set ever since I saw which has basically been pretty much ever since we've had the CM. Are emotes able to be unlocked in collections, or are they more like dyes?

How about actually making the game itself better? Like fixing the gear preview bug that has been going on for a year.

The CM update is currently live and you will notice that Bronze is missing currently. You will be able to find the Bronze packs in the Packs section of the CM in the next 30-60 minutes. Silver and Gold can be found on the featured page right now.

Thanks!

Nope! Not after last night's fiasco with the east coast servers (Yet Again) an unannounced rollback, and now an unannounced new planet to conquer with Iokath being the only planet to conquer, I ain't buying anything from the CM. Improved communications? What a joke!! Ugh....I just can't even with you guys anymore. I used to defend you guys. But I'm done.

Edit: And no Conquest rewards for last week. The RNG is strong with the devs.

P.S. I am so SICK of Iokath already!!!
