BioWare bans credit sellers. They donít like the competition. 😛😄

No, I gave up caring about them not listening years ago the pattern of pretending to care and not really caring has gone on so long most vets like me know the real deal here.

But make no mistake about it, had they listened to even 1/4 of my past recommendations the game wouldn't be a steaming pile of dumspter trash like it is now. Sadly, it is what it is.

I am just bored atm and like to forumquest here when I get idle time truth be told.

In reality I always went back to EQ1 when I got fed up with the idiocy on this game but unfortunately I got through everything on that game I wanted, so there's really no game I play now.

I do try this one still, but I lose interest so fast. I did run two Hammer Stations yesterday.

Got one piece of 270 gear too! Really makes it feel worth the time, plus the amount of fun I get from running the same two FPs over and over, well, I can't put into words the fun I have gearing up now. (sarcasm btw)

I even got to experience the fun of some bug, I couldn't loot one of the bosses in the Vet Hammer Station, so I lost out on potential gear too, I imagine.

Who cares tbh, no one in my group cared (they didn't say one word except for one person who began by saying "howdy." I gave a "hiya" and off we went. Total silence, even after we wiped multiple times in the FPs, not one word. I tried to give some direction but I aint a Hammer Station expert it's been years since I had last ran it, didn't matter though my words were met by silence.

The state of MMOs in today's social climate is sad compared to how it used to be. Just saying, people behave like automatons now in dungeons. Not only are the games uninventive but the players in them are a bunch of silent mute weirdos.

People are so used to clicking auto-whatever that they couldn't care less who is in the FP with them. Basically everyone with you is like a bot, just running and doing whatever they are programmed to do, oblivious to the other group mates.

I blame all the instant gratification rewards on games now, and just how people interact on their phones, this is seeping into how we act face to face which is scary.

I only group with guildies these days, and talk to them on discord.

Iím enjoying playing my shadow dps and assassin talk. I feel no desire to buy stuff on the CM for them though.

I wish it were true that BioWare bans credit sellers. Sadly they are now numerous than ever.

BioWare as the seller? Well thatís perfectly acceptable then. To them. Lol. I doubt we will see that any time soon though.

But it's a funny premise, right? Imagine if they were in the credit selling business, too.

I've never been big on conspiracy theories, but I certainly wouldn't put this past EAWare, or any company for that matter. That doesn't mean there aren't other credit sellers out there, but this would be a smart business decision on their part. EAware has already been selling credits through their Cartel Market for years, only in the form of merchandise versus actual currency.

Regarding your original post, I sense a bit of sarcasm in there , but then again... As much as some of us want to believe that companies like this are in it for the best interest of Star Wars and its fans, they're in it to make a buck. That doesn't mean they don't have a certain amount of passion for Star Wars, but at the end of the day, it is about bringing home a paycheck.

With the Furious sabers being recycled this ranked season, there's virtually no reason to buy a CM doublesaber/pike

I mean i've suggested they add credits for CC to the market as a means of mitigating the credit spammers myself. What would most people do, given the choice, go to seedy websites or use a perfectly legitimate instant gratification method?

I group with guildies when I can, and Discord does help, but it can also present its own problems. I just hate it when some guy who is not in the FP has to make sarky kibitzing comments on Discord, or one of my teammates who *is* in the FP is paying more attention to the conversation in Discord than to what's actually in front of him/her.

But with random pug teams from GF, yeah. Nobody talks much, if at all.

Again another "argument" that I've seen a lot over the years, over a ton of games, even SP games. "But that's not what we wanted", even when, it was, what they asked for. "But the other system was better". This one is hugely ironic, because every time a new system is introduced, the previous one was "better". It doesn't even matter what the system is, or was, it's always greener on the other side of the fence, eh? Here's a classic example, that's even developer specific: Dragon Age II was lambasted on the old BSN for being a total train wreck, and yet, when Inquisition released, you'd have thought that DA II was the best thing since sliced bread.

If you ever wonder why it seems like developers aren't paying attention, re-read this post, and maybe go back and check your own post history, to see how many times you've done the "but the other one was better".
