Technically they do, with operations, warzones, daily zones and blah blah like that. Giving away additional virtual currency has no impact on the game play and the Cartel Market is just cosmetic stuff that has no real statistical value. It's all just for looks. If you want real value weapons and armors, you have to play the game and earn Commendations or run Operations and Warzones for loot.

Your response made no sense at all.

Here, I'll restate the question.

Why did you make a new account instead of lodging your complaints on your old account?


If you don't answer, I'll make the rational assumption that you were either outright lying in your first post(which makes it rather impossible to hold any genuine discussions) or had a ruined reputation on your original account and so paid for a second one to try to get the forum community to take you more seriously. For everyone else reading, neither is an advisable thing to do. People generally don't care about when you started playing when it comes to discussing the game. They'll reject or agree with your statements based on their own personal preferences, not that you were an OMGFounder(no offense to all you other founders out there) or a newb to the game. Regarding creating new accounts, as long as your name is not inherently insulting/bashing(which will get an immediate reaction regardless of attitude change), if you're civil towards other posters they'll generally be civil towards you, even if past behavior has been overly aggressive. We've got plenty of other posters who've been very angry or ranty at certain points, but are treated just like everyone else when they put a well-written opinion out for discussion.

i think that response is more suited for PM rather than bumping the thread with something completely unrelated.

Fixed, for hopefully all our sakes!

Yup, this.

OP, don't buy CC from Amazon. There, have we fixed it for you?

You can wish all you want, They will do what they consider to be the right thing. When you start up your own game company you will have a chance to manage it the way you want. With that in mind, why would you complain?

Anything a player does in the game is "actual game play."
