I accidently purchased an item for 400 credits earlier whilst trying to see what it looked like equiped, I figured hey most games have a cooling off period so you can sell it back full price within a few minutes, well yeah SWTOR doesn't, I got 40 creds back.

Just a heads up

i've played hundreds of mmos and i don't know a single one that has a "cool off" period lol. that's a pretty weird thing to expect :P

although it would probably be a pretty good feature, but i don't think it would be a priority.

400 creds isn't exactly alot lol, could have been a worse way to find that out, or more expensive I should say

The closest I've seen to a cool off period in a game is where if you don't shut the merchants window it'll refund you the full cost of the item. I've never seen one where you can equip the item and then try to sell it back for full cost.

Then play better MMOs. It's not an exotic feature.

I've played nearly every triple A MMO since 2003 and have not heard of it.

And when I have backpack full of junk I don't want "cool off" system :P
400 credits is NOTHING.
