I want my collections unlock amount refunded.

IF your thought were true... then they would have actually done it stealth mode and not put it in the patch notes.
Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.

nah, I really doubt they even hoped for a second this wouldn't be picked up by players.
Probably this change is more widely hated than all the nerfs, lol.

22 pages of replies and not a single response for Bioware on this.

This is unacceptable! Because you lack the competence to deal with an account unlock work around those of us who have paid our credits and/or cartel coins to unlock tunings and crystals account wide now must pay to extract tunings and crystals to put my saber in my legacy bank. Are you coders really so inept that this was the only solution?

9100 credits everytime i want to send weapons to an alt who has the crystals and tuning unlocked. You know I get sick of stupid complaints about comapnions and other frivolousstuff but this is BW taking a big steaming crap on it's players.

I'll be boycotting the cartel market until this fixed.
This is not fun. This is the opposite of fun.

They've never done anything intentional like that before, how could you suggest such a thing?!

Anyway. Eric / Keith.

If this is going to be left as it is, honestly can I have a refund for my account unlocked crystals please. You've done yourselves a disservice with this change, essentially making CM crystals not work for players who have met the following criteria;
  • Purchased packs or individual CM crystals or CM crystal packs (bronze / silver / gold).
  • Purchased packs or individual Tunings (or earned them via the DvL event)
  • Paid to unlock those CM crystals and tunings account wide.
  • Participated in content that enables players to earn Legacy Weapons that are designed to be passed between characters on a players account.
  • Not circumvented account unlocks for CM crystals or tunings by unlocking them individually.

So for those customers who have played by the rules, why exactly are we being penalised by this change? Most of us can understand why the change is being implemented - however it detracts seriously from those of us who haven't bent those rules.

So are you going to resolve this issue (if so can we have a timescale), if not, can you refund account wide unlocks for those of us who haven't circumvented the intention of account unlocks and legacy weapons?.

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

My favorite solution to this would be to eliminate the cost to remove crystals and tunings from weapons. I used to be able to put legacy weapons in my legacy vault for free, and now I have to pay to put them in the vault. I do not think (hope?) that the intent of this change was to add a cost to certain uses of the legacy vault. Therefore, that cost should be removed.

I do not favor making crystals like dyes. I do not like the idea of all my crafted crystals suddenly becoming single use. That would also be a loss for the player and not a gain.

Yeah I thought of this as well, at least remove the cost to remove crystals and tunings from legacy weapons. That would be fair yeah? The others can remain as they are.
Hairy Co-pilot.

It is disappointing, although not unexpected, that Eric has been posting today and he is completely avoiding these threads.

I understand where they are coming from on this (although Eric said years ago that moving cartel crystals in legacy weapons was not considered an exploit) but, for it to not allow account unlocked crystals and tunings to be put into legacy storage is absolutely stupid.

Eric (or Keith) has to actually know what to respond before responding. Eric's just a PR guy, he probably doesn't know the reasoning behind or the technical spesifics of this change. So he can't comment on it. Furthermore, this is obviously a volatile subject so they'll want to choose their response carefully lest they give out incorrect information or piss off the community even more.

We definitely should get a response to this, I agree. And hopefully that response will let us know they intend to fix this somehow. But the fact they haven't addressed this thread/issue -yet- isn't the end of the world.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.
