I"m totally floored here, I just don't get it.

Did you guys JUST respec? If you havn't then you STILL have a free one for the week. If you did, well guess what, you get one in a few days.

As someone who's only used the respec once a week and never paid for one, can someone enlighten me on how many credits the second respec for the week is? I'm guessing its a stupid low number.

You people will find anything to complain about. If your this upset about something so peetty and trivial, you need to find a different genre of game, maybe farmville.

We don't give out free respecs based on an arbitrary judgement call as to how many changes were made; we give them out so your characters will continue to work. Hope that makes sense.
How is it the changes to combat medic do not equal a broken character? Seriously did you not read the feedback on these changes, did you not suspect some of us would want something different after this rectal insertion?

What this amounts to is punishing troopers and bounty hunters, they are the only classes that has to pay to get a respec with the NGE 1.2. Could you guys have mangled a release any more, it is broken, unfinished, and miss patched in a very bad way. The player base was ignored in these changes, the patch was rushed and it shows. Might be time to hire some professionals over at Bioware, instead of the amateur hour. The game is charging professional rate subscriptions after all.

If I remember correctly from over a month ago it was free, 800-ish, then something around 2k, ~5k, ~12kish. Completely guessing. I respeced 5-6 times and it eventually got to +20k.

I only respecced that much one week cause 1 night guild needed dps, next a healer, next dps, next healer, etc.
Duct tape is like the Force, it has a Light side and a Dark side and it binds the universe together.

Problem is that Combat Medics / Bodyguards don't work anymore.

But would a respec fix that?

How can some people claim that a respec isn't necessary. If my spec changes depending on the nerfs/buffs that went into talents in a patch, that requires me to respec my talents. Some talents that I used before are no longer worth the talent points or in some cases i might value a talent more relative to the other options. That is restructuring the talent tree. Is 98K alot to pay? no. Is it annoying? Yes

Yeah I don't understand. They say swapping a 5 point talent to a 3 point talent and not giving a respec is unfair...

But they swapped change a few talents in the combat medic tree to (effectively) 0 point talents. How can they possibly think that people aren't going to want to spec out of stuff like trauma probe or kolto residue?

In trying new builds, since they borked my old build, yes. Thats just trying to salvage my time on that character and still have fun with the game. Fun after all is the point, and the fun factor of combat medic just had the gas taken out of it.
