It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Bioware.

Star Wars.

Not World of Warcraft/Everquest/Age of Conan/Warhammer/Guild Wars 2.

I just got the feeling it might have slipped your mind.

Now we return to our regularly scheduled discussion in progress.

I knew this was going to just be recolors, and since it is a "sub-tier" rather than a whole new tier (?), that doesn't seem unreasonable.

But the COLORS! Dear merciful stars, most of the colors they used lead me to believe that the artists:
a) were actively trying to make this gear look unattractive,
b) are color blind, or
c) have an atrocious sense of aesthetics.

I normally try to be gentle with my criticism, but the moment I laid eyes on the "mustard and ketchup" Consular sets -- complete with teal bits on the wrists that were not recolored to coordinate with the new color schemes -- I just couldn't believe that any measure of care and thought was put into these recolors. Which is troubling, considering how much of a ruckus has been raised about endgame armor looks and how we even got an, "Ok, we understand, you guys want nicer looking armor, we'll try harder" type of message from Bioware.

And to temper my criticism with something constructive: might I suggest considering some nice shades of blues and greens, maybe with some cream colors, for the Republic side?

Same. I love some the low level stuff and wish that they would be orange in higher levels.

+1

Given some of the colors in game (e.g. some of that orange-ish / salmon-y colored stuff, especially combined with green) has made me tip on some of this stuff being put together by someone who's colorblind. It's not quite as bad as the pastel clown suits from WoW's Burning Crusade expansion, but still...
If it bleeds it's probably pissed that you shot it.

I think it needs to be a little bit more obvious.

Star Wars

World of Warcraft - NO
Everquest - NO
Age of Conan - NO
Warhammer - NO
Guild Wars 2 - NO

My God, you lot are a bunch of vitriolic little crybabies, aren't you? BW gives you new gear, you spit in their faces.

Grow up, kiddies.
I find your over-inflated sense of self worth disturbing.

^ No. Just no.

Its a matter of simple business. Bioware makes a terribley managed product, completely ignores every scream and cry for help from the community to fix it. Then people complain. And you call us cry babies?

Maybe you have forgotten, We pay money to play this game out of our own pockets. At least i do. If i see bioware/EA not giving me my moneys worth (NOT EVEN CLOSE) , you better believe people are going to complain.
