Here's a novel idea: all the armor sets that were removed; give them to the CE vendor as schematics! \o/ (or complete sets that are individually purchased)
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

You really should make that a thread all it's own.. That really is an awesome idea..

That's what was actually said to arrive to the vendor. Scan through this thread, you'll find Ohlen talking about exclusive weapons and armor.

Of course not.

Methinks we've already had our answer through what has actually been implemented; it's never going to happen. By making a concession, they also admit that they're not going to make good on the original intent. Heck, they didn't even make good on that claim at release with two sets of light armour. If the original team didn't intend to follow through, you can bet your biscuits that the current team isn't going to, either.

Not saying that's a good thing - simply stating my perception of the situation.

Not to mention that this team is hesitant enough communicating what they actually intend to do with the game - good luck getting them to talk about what they do not intend to do.

Posting jokes here is a good idea to diffuse the displeasure brought about from being ignored by BW / EA.

Oh right, I forgot that it is ok for the apologists and employees to call people who do not agree with Bioware's policy regarding the CE Vendors names and insult them.

Am I unhappy with BW? Yes.
Am I voicing my unhappiness? Yes.
Am I stomping my foot and "threatening" to quit? No.
Am I throwing a tantrum? No.

And actually I already said other things. But the result was name calling by the apologists.
But I guess it is ok for them to call those that dare to state their opinion "entitled", "complainer for the sake of complaining", "whiner", "crybaby" etc.....

Yep, totally acceptable.

If the conversation would have stayed civil and without name calling, I wouldn't have felt the need for a quick jab.

I think this may be an issue/reason why the vendor isn't getting updated:

Anything added to an in-game vendor for credits may end up taking away from cartel market sales.


Think about it.

What if they give us armor and weapons that people would want to wear? Cartel pack sales would likely drop.
What if black/black white/white or other rare dyes were added to the CE vendor? Dye pack sales would mostly die off.

The more desireable stuff put on the CE vendor, the fewer pack sales they would get from people buying packs/crates to get "that thing" they want. (there are threads in the general forums where people talk about buying crates to get specific items and are upset when they don't get them)


So... putting good stuff on the CE vendor would result in less new money for the company. Therefore I am not expecting to see updates to the CE vendor that many will consider to be "good"

I don't think that putting Black/Black or White/White on the CE vendor as a BoP would influence the Cartel Packs a lot, if they were kept in there as a rare random drop with the same chances as before. The only thing that would happen is, that the CE owners would be able to get it when ever they wanted for a better price than in the GTN.

Like seriously... How many players with CE vendor access are still in the game, like? Although not exclusive - I'd like this deal and it would make me not mention CE vendor again.
