You've read the classics AND are a Honor Harrington fan? I like you already (It's a short story by O Henry called Gift of the Magi)

The game desperately needs credit sinks right now, this is one of them. I question them putting them in at the same time as massively crushing the primary income source, though.

Odd way of putting it....but correct non the less.
I love Star Wars.

Quite honestly BW all you need to do is either a) redo the stats on the items, or b) you bring them back as shells like you did with the class specific armors. Though I honestly doubt that BW will make any informed decision on this given their track record from at least 3.0
You mean the orange shells from all the planetary vendors? Yes they need to return these. And they did not give any heads up about removing them. They did however give a heads up about removing the ops gear, so they were ok on that....but not on the other vendors. (Though if I am wrong, please someone show me )

I didn't think it made sense for my sith warrior to get a blaster cannon, but it turns out it was automatically added to my collection so a commando character could claim it/

The sad thing is that as soon as the current staff will have managed to run the game into the ground, EA will more likely just close down the game.

To the rest of you complainers: shame on you!! You all sound like a bunch of ungrateful spoiled brats. Grow up!
I am a grateful spoiled brat thank you very much! And I have the mental age of 12, so....I cant grow up sorrys.
Also....I will complain because I want to like this game, been here since late 2012 (missed that stinking jawa balloon by 2 weeks and wish it would come back as a reward for something, I don't care what (just not ranked pvp.) just anyway please.

As for a lot of things I was upset with, they have been smoothed over with some (not all) of things they talked about, the heroics being reset.....at this point....after all the talking and trying to understand it....to be honest either way is ok with me. The real problem I see is the rarity drop rate of items, and not just cartel items, there were lots of items that used to random drop before 4.0, that NEVER do now, they need to be reverted.

I am still upset how they handled the EC speed run (even though I did not do it because I still don't even have the achievement for it.) and all the bugs this past patch. So hopefully the fixes they have incoming next week will help.
I love Star Wars.

Ok....I know this is completely random....but when did the devs remove the GSI satellite on Makeb? Because that means you can NEVER get the codex "GSI Satellite Support" ever again. (Its under the "Lore" tab) I do not remember in any patch notes for the last 7 months them removing it. So the question I have for Eric is....anyway you can find out if we can still get it from another source? Or was it removed completely from the game so no one get it ever again? I know this will probably end up covered up by other questions, but asking because Eric you said in the livestream you will look over this forum. Hopefully it can get answered.

4.0, or an early 4.x patch - the mechanical buff was presumably considered no longer necessary what with the rapid levelling, higher level cap, and level sync.

I'd forgotten there was a lore entry associated.

It was a mistake to continue subscribing to this game after EA took it over, and that's a mistake I'm correcting now.
Ignore the event. There you go, it's cancelled for you. Meanwhile those of us who are enjoying the event can continue doing so. Cancelling the event would provide nothing to you that you don't get from simply ignoring it, so why such a selfish demand?

The rewards are so terribad that nobody should have them? (I'm enjoying the event myself, so I'm glad they didn't cancel)
