Hey folks,

Over the last year we’ve changed how we operate the Cartel Market based on your suggestions, including increasing the number of items and the frequency in limited time, direct purchase sales. Our goal is to give you more freedom to choose how you get your items. Want to get them out of packs? You still can! Want to get them directly? Now you can do that, too.

Starting with the Spring event on Tuesday, March 27th players will begin to see changes take shape in three key areas: direct sale of items, new items, and the next Cartel Market (CM) pack. This Spring event is a limited time event which will run from Tuesday, March 27th through Tuesday, April 17th. Check out each section below for specifics!

New Items
Been looking to get the new Dark Honor Guard’s Unstable Saber (it’s amazing) since the launch of Game Update 5.8 ‘Command Authority’? Well that saber along with all the new 5.8 Cartel Market items will be available for direct sale starting tomorrow, March 27th!

The Next CM Pack
Our new Cartel Pack will be called the “Ultimate Pack” will be available tomorrow as well and it works a bit differently than other packs:
  • Each pack contains 4 slots. Slots 1, 2, and 3 can contain any item ever released on the CM, including the new items coming in ‘Command Authority’ (Game Update 5.8), and any future items. Slot 4 will then contain either scrap, Companion Gifts, or a Dye Module. Dyes being in slot 4 is a big change from how it worked in older packs.
  • Pricing of the packs has been lowered; they can be purchased individually (200 CC), in a 10-pack Supercrate (1900 CC), or in a 30-pack Hypercrate (5400 CC).

Cartel Market Limited Time Sale
From Tuesday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 17th almost every Cartel Market item will be available for direct sale! Maybe there is an item you have been waiting to see in our weekly sales, or, you just don’t want to throw the credits at it on the GTN. This will give you an opportunity to scoop that item up.

Let us know your thoughts! We appreciate your continued feedback.

I'm normally not a Cartel Market fan but this direct sale is cool. When you say "everything" do you mean anything that has ever been on the CM or things available in the packs currently for sale?

Not all but definitely most. If there is something missing that you wish to see let us know and we can work on getting it added for a future direct sale.

For armor sets, direct sale is always all pieces from a given set, the new pack also drops full sets.

I can only hope that this cash grab is intended to fund extensive changes to the conquest system based upon player feedback before this game is down to eight active players.

Think of the year it took to change galactic command into something acceptable--except this time you probably only have a month or two of population losses (if that) to burn through before EA execs start asking uncomfortable questions (again, like they did for galactic command...remember that EA survey?)

I'm always refer direct sale but some items selling like 40 bucks or more is way too much for an vanity items.

So you didnt learn from the last time you changed the packs down to only 4 slots - And now you have a chance of NOT getting anything from the new packs.

You also supposedly reduced the price, but thats the price they are at most of the time anyway - You just call it a sale!

Thank god Far Cry 5 is out will bide my time there for a while til somehting better comes along.
