Renamed the Royal Taun Taun that was eluding me for years, finally at 100% mounts.

I really like this addition to the rewards

"Are you worried about not meeting the criteria for this promotion? Fear not! If you miss this promotional window, the Umbaran Patrol Tauntaun will return again in a future game update."

Hopefully that will stop all the arguing over the rewards now, even if you miss one right now.

I didn't even notice that. Great addition. Makes things clear as day and will (hopefully!) diminish future arguments about sub rewards, at least the new ones.

A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.

I also hope this addition will mean that past subscriber rewards will be re-released again. I'm still missing Shae Vizla and that broken speeder one and I'd like a chance at those again.
Do you want free 7 days of subscription time? And one free server transfer?
With a bundle of goodies? And obtain these rewards every 90 days?
Then click my referral link and login to an existing account, or create a new one, for these rewards today! Don't forget to bookmark it too!

More likely it will *boost* the arguing about all the earlier rewards, on the basis that, "you did it for the UPT, why not for the X," and in any event, there will be a stream of complaints about "why not make it return now".

I'm not gonna look a gift Tauntaun in the mouth, but just a recolored mount doesn't exactly inspire excitement in me here. It's like all those Astromech pets we keep getting for May the 4th: I'll take it, but it'll end up in my collection and never see the light of day.

I'm curious about that. If it's going to return in a future game update, I doubt it will be in the form of a sub reward again, because then some players who already have it would complain they aren't getting anything from that sub promotion.

I can only speculate that some new feature is being worked on to allow old promotional rewards to be obtainable by players who don't have them yet. Perhaps old sub rewards will get a special section on the CM(like the HK bonus chapter), and old in-game event rewards, such as from the DvL event, will become earnable through in-game achievements(like Darth Hexid) or through vendors at the cost of in-game earned currency(like the 2012 Chevin and Rakghoul Pandemic event rewards)?

New players get rewards. Returning players get rewards.

Casirabit is correct... but then again so are you. No need to apologize for the honest and (unfortunately ) accurate conclusion.

I personally appreciate the offered reward.

Cool looking mount, re-skinned, but pretty cool overall.
