You guys make some pretty good points, although clam down you're acting like a bunch of blindfolded Jawas on spice with lightsabers in their hands! We have the Swtor Bill Gates in here then we have the Entitlment Doctor geesh can't we just get an actual response from Bioware to what is going to happen to the CE vendor, i'am sure most of us would appreciate it.

BW dev 1 hey guys i made this cool looking armor, CE vendor or cash shop
BW dev 2 did u really just ask that if in doubt cash shop
Digital Deluxe Edition. FEMALE ONLY set of armor. Completely useless to me.

And just because the CE vendor wasn't updated you believe you're entitled to a lifetime sub or pay less than everyone else? The CE vendor was a side bonus. The physical contents are what the CE is actually for.

And on top of all that...

Collectors Edition holders receive an additional 1000 cartel coins, on top of the coins you get for your active subscription.

Let's sum it up.
You get an awesome statue, a soundtrack and God knows what else.
You get access to an exclusive vendor in-game, with a really cool set of armor.
You get 1000 free cartel coins on top of the normal rates, at F2P.
And you're still complaining?

Pucker up and play the game, or unsub, and let your CE go to waste. Your call.

You have a nice way of putting things.
Are you quite happy to let bioware say one thing, take your money, then not bother? I bought a ce solely for the vendor. While I'm not asking for lifetime subs etc, I do want them to update the vendor regularly, with exclusive items. That's what they said they would do.

Dude, the items in the CE weren't worth it! 150 quid at the start, they all sold out quickly but after 5 months they start manufactured and sold at most game stores for 50 quid. That's a slap to the face to the official CE owners who overpaid and didn't even get the vendor updates. I was lured by the promise of a vendor selling unique items affecting the apperance. Vendor that would have his stock updated!

"You got a soundtrack..." seriously?! You call a demo disc a soundtrack...?
Armor set is not cool, it would be cool if it didn't have a stupid antenna on the back. That's the Imperial one. The Republic one is a slight recolour of the civilian pilot outft available to both factions. And so far we don't even know what 1000 coins will be like... They can be equal to 1, 2 or 5 quid... Or maybe more, we don't know.

Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

That's what happens when you blindly invest in a game.

Guild Wars 2 indicated that the CE will contain only a selection of tracks from the OST. TOR didn't. Nobody said that the speeder will be useless on level 50. CE vendor was PROMISED to get updates.

Carefully studying exactly what my purchase will buy me, and weighing up the pros and cons, is not blindly investing.

Honestly without the CE shop I would never have bought the CE box.

Because:
  • I don't care about the statue and honestly not only it looks and feels cheap but it doesn't even looks good.
  • The soundtrack isn't good either. More like some low budget movie than SW ones and no it does not feels SW at all.
  • There isn't even an art book.
  • The speeder is useless at tier II and III
  • The camera is just a print screen button that eats a quick slot spot.
  • The mini pet is available in game in other color

Someone could contact the BBB regarding the regular updates...

Like many here I am disappointed by the CE shop, the Security Key shop and many others. The idea of some items being shuffled to the other shops is good, as many others, But I think as an idea, what about discounts?

Get rid of the all these smaller specialty shops. And As of said date all people with CE, DDE whatever editions applied to their accounts will receive a 5% or 10% discount on items in the Cartel shop. So we spend a few less cartel coins in the shop for having the promised special editions with perks that never got fulfilled.

I just ordered my CE from amazon, new, for $68.00. It will be in tomorrow. I'm very happy I didn't invest when the game first came out.
