your dollar, but you just opened the door for "demand refund" threads. Oh well.

So basically we should do something else and wait for next week to come back?

What about those of us that just spent millions on training new skills?

Yeah, I did it in the first reply. Personally I don't care either way, I swear it's the guildies who apparently dropped like 1 mil credits on training going from 56-60 that I ask on behalf of; given that short window in which this change is being implemented compared to when they spent that.

But, as I said, it's not that I personally want anything back.

The thing that irks me most, is now we have something that could have been prevented had there been an open/public beta.

This whole topic of training costs only became an issue because Bioware didn't communicate well enough about this to allow anyone to expect to have to pay to train level 55 abilities again. Had there been an open beta, this might have been decided upon before early access began and many us spent a lot of credits on training.

C'est la vie!

Early Access is the new Open Beta.

Perfectly fair IMHO. Freeloaders get enough as it is.

It is a situation where every level you will see your hard earned credits go to a holographic Hutt doctor in order to make yourself a bit stronger. We have been talking about this topic internally for quite some time and when you add player feedback to the mix one thing becomes clear… We should make training costs a thing of the past.

Since launch, you have spent millions of credits training skills across your characters. As of our maintenance next week all ability training costs will be completely removed from the game, forever!

What does this mean for you? This means that starting next week, instead of spending your credits on training skills, you can now spend them on literally, anything else you want. Note that this only affects ability training, you will still need to spend credits to training schematics for Crew Skills, etc.

Thank you again for your feedback.

Well done Bioware....well done.

This was, IMO, one of the smartest moves you could have made.

Looks like I will need to resub after all
