Logic, the most cruel of Mistresses, you have struck again.
Oh Ceryxp, ye who knows what an Oxford comma means.

You should know that AP writing style now discourages the use of mistress b/c there is no male equivalent. It is now archaic and sexist to use that term.

Ergo, it is not just logic, but fate, that is a cruel female companion.

LOL, funny you should mention that considering what happened over in this thread where I dared to use a gender neutral pronoun.

And yes, many a row was had between myself, my editors, and my journalism professor in college. They would frequently remind me that AP style does not use the Oxford comma, and I would inform them that AP is wrong. When AP announced they would do away with hyphens it was almost war. Battle lines were drawn and friendships were severed, but fortunately the AP relented, rescinding some of their proposed guidance. Alas, we lovers of the Oxford comma have yet to feel the thrill of vindication for your wayward little comma.

Edit:
I should add, these discussions were all good natured. We would even make a game of coming up with sentences that were ambiguous in the absence of an Oxford comma. For example, "I love cooking, my kids and my dog."

Isn't "Mister" the male equivalent of Mistress? 🙂

Or is it "sugar daddy"?. 🤔

Or maybe, Simp? 😂

I'm not sure, but is it not master? The example that pops to mind is K-9 (Doctor Who) when talking to a male char, he refers to them as Master, and a female as Mistress. They've also done it with the Master, when they changed gender, she became missy (Mistress)

The stupidest idea for a long time to force people playing ranked pvp and mm operations.

The person who made this up should be fired.

Probably rich PvP'ers. They cost more than half a billion each on my server. So that's a lot of credits for something that is temporary at best. Especially x 14.

there are many ppl out there buying the mats and augments,
but most wanna buy mats, because they could get a second augment.

yesterday the prices were:
oem: 30mill each
rpm: 45mill each

actually an ordered full set of augments costs around 7bill.
because of massively increased wintrading, the rpm costs will
sink soon, too. bioware just don't care about wintrading for mats
and the players don't care about the rating. there are even guilds
organizing wintrading events.

the most buyers i saw, weren't known pvp players or master mode
operation runners. or better, it didn't seemed so. maybe they bought
them with a character in a different guild, with a second account or
whatever. at the end i don't care.
and who am i to judge them. everybody has its own preferences and
even if they are doing it for the shiny color... who cares.

but get rid of the idea, that 1 bill credits is much in swtor.
