No really I do love CXP grindfest the free RNG boxes are dang good credits and I enjoy opening them! But aside from that the cosmetic gear and the odd 234 item from 1-100 is nice too. I suppose you have a reason for preferred not getting it as much as people seem to not enjoy it. But could you add a CXP unlock in the store please? I would pay around 1000CC - 1500CC for it, Thanks!!

This is what Iíve been saying. They need a paid pass to allow preferred to gain and use CXP items

I am curious because I boosted a character on my preferred account to lvl 70 and I canít level it but I wonder if itís because that account doesnít own KoTET or KoTFE?

That's Captain Oblivious! , get it right. It's done so you'd pay for a sub.

However if you paid for the December expansion bundle is it Inlocled after your subscription lapses was the second part to the question I stated Mr. Oblivious?

I'm mostly preferred and I'm fine with it being a sub-only thing. It doesn't affect preferred gameplay all that much [the gear is helpful but not absolutely required]. This is an optional freebie thing that encourages subbing without being detrimental to non-subs.

In point of fact, it was a contributing reason for why I resubbed. I hadn't planned on doing that, and the Origin special was the major reason to do it, but it was still a factor I considered - yay, now I can get CXP again.

Thatís really cool. From what I seen on my free preferred account you can get tier 2 gear just takes longer. Possibly tier 3 but not sure on tier 4 in all honesty I would like to take my time and pick and choose on what to do or what to unlock. The way I am setting things up Iíll probably drop down to preferred and get the expansion bundle every December as they bring out more stuff. Looking forward to enjoying it all at a slower pace

Also because I will be dropping the subscription in June it isnít because of any doom or gloom or lack of stuff to do, I just really donít like monthly fees and I can still enjoy the game as much as I would like too as if I were to be a sub.

OK, now I'm confused. Your OP says why can't you get CXP with a Pref account, but the above suggests you did?? Or are you using an alternate method to get the gear (using remaining unassembled components, etc)?

For the record: If you aren't an active sub, you don't get access to CXP, so you don't get command crates.
And you can't even tell what the daily bonus activity is.

But, I suppose you can open command crates you gained when previously subbed (hmm, have to try this next time).

As to why they do it this way? They keep tinkering with the way to keep subs / maximize profits. This last time (5.0) it was this rework denying this end-game to non-subs. Guess they decided folk who just re-sub once after the latest story is done wasn't sufficient.
