Never said it, did happen.
Oops, yes, sorry, misread what you were saying.

Must be subbed on this date, and only that date, rewards are not the right way to go in my opinion.

Must be subbed for (pick a number) continous months to get a reward would work better. It's still rewarding subs, and gives new players something to work towards.

With the companion rewards they can easily change them, slap a new skin and a new name on them, so that the old sub companions remain unique, but the newer companions perform the same function gameplay-wise.

In my opinion: reward or not, it's not up to me as a player to make that determination. If that charactor was made available to any of us as a reward: then it's exactly that.... a reward ! That means it was GIVEN to me as a "Thank You".

I an not going to be rude to others who are asking for an opportunity to obtain that "companion" . That does not change the significance of the gift that was GIVEN to me.
If I understand this correctly that means that the hard part of making the charactor available as a companion has already been done ( 3-D model , other graphics and coding to make the charactor work in game ) ... If that's the case then the availability is a matter of "flipping a switch" (so to speak). That decision belongs to someone within the ranks of SWTOR... not me. I don't have a problem with OP request at all.

Besides: that falming red headed woman is a hoot !


All we need now is a long cool woman in a black dress ... ( yeah ... I'm sure there's one or two of you who get that one) .

I don't know why some players assume these were one-time-only rewards. It makes sense to make them available again, a lot of players would sub for them. If you already have them, then congrats, you don't have to sub this time to get them. Enjoy the fact you got several years more use out of them than everyone else.

Of course, if they're just interested in hoarding exclusive rewards over those that don't have them for the sake of feeling as special a snowflake as possible, then I could understand why they'd be so against having the rewards made available again.

In any case, I like the idea of a continuous sub reward system in which both old and new promotional content is made available to players. That way both veteran and new/returning players have reason to participate.

That would actually be a good way to go about it.

I recently returned, and after encountering her in SoR as I was progressing through the story content on my Sith Inquisitor, I was really looking forward to being able to recruit her. For some reason I was under the impression that her alliance alert recruitment was simply part of the story in KOTET or something. I'm in chapter 14 of KOTFE now, where I'm working with her, and while looking for when I would be able to recruit her, I just learned that I won't be able to recruit her at all. There's no path available to me at all. The door is just shut and locked. Simply because I wasn't subbed during a specific window of time.

Doesn't leave a good taste in my mouth, and will likely remain in the back of my mind when I decide whether I want to continue or cancel my sub. Shae won't be the sole determining factor about whether I continue to sub or not, but this whole situation is definitely a negative mark in the pro-con list.

I actually suggested this method quite awhile ago, be subbed for X amount of time to receive Y reward. It would certainly encourage more continuous sub time than the date specific rewards. I have never understood this "you must be subscribed on a specific date to get a reward" system SWTOR has going. It's asinine.

What I also dislike though are the threads where someone is basically stomping their feet and having a temper tantrum about not having a certain reward and how BioWare MUST release that reward again. Asking nicely and politely is one thing, demanding is another.

A lot of great points made here by the sharing crowd, nice to see.
