You buy Rise of the Hutt Cartel for $10 which includes, 5 more levels - including a new ability for all classes, a new planet, 4 hard mode FPS, 1 Operation, Dozens of pieces of "new" gear, Macrobinocular and seeker droid missions " and much, much more"

Then they sell a one-time use dye for double that price! I certainly will never buy this, so no skin off my back but there is a word in Italian that describes this: disgraziato.

No, when someone is stretching your udders, that's when you're being milked.

Good, cause its a vanity item.

See, you can buy yourself a regular car for a fraction of the price you pay for a ferrari, even though on city streets they will have to respect the same speed limits.
Thats what vanity is. They are also giving a choice to people who dont want to grind 6 million credits or that dont like to play the roulette with packs.

Choice is never a bad thing.

Don't buy it then?

Or people are just butt-hurt by the cash price, and mostly likely too lazy to grind the creds and peel it from GTN..

I belive the italian word for that is " rosiconi "

I think the dyes are cooler than Makeb.

Just my opinion :P

Honestly, the CM is no different than the GTM - they are both Buyers' Markets. I guarantee that if those dyes are not being purchased at their current price, the price will go down.

And there is an aspect you are probably not thinking of - F2P and premium account players have credits limits. They can never get the 1+ million credits needed to buy off the GTM. So BW is giving them the opportunity to more easily acquire those BB and WW dyes.

Right...because logging into the forums and starting a thread proves how much you don't really care about it...

I guess buying any of those fluff items would be Udder nonsense.
