Because a lot of people still care about this game and want it to be awesome, but get frustrated when illogical decisions (in their point of view) are made.

I have to say I agree that 350 is way too much. I can't see anyone picking these up, 2 of these implants costs a fair bit more than an entire set of bh gear for an alt.

150 each. That would be high but reasonable.

I love this game, but I have some serious concerns about the gear recently.

The price is fine for me, maybe because I come from the EQ hardcore days. This comm/badge system freebie system is a bad idea. I didn't like ZulAman patch back in BC WoW days when they showered noobs with gear they didn't deserve, and Black Hole gear was pretty much that.---> Rolfstomp thorugh daily HM to get the same stats as a dedicated raider.

If you dont have the dedication to get 7 mates to do hard raids you don't even need that gear. What are you going to do with it? Playing blind the HM flashpoints with mobs that die in 2 hits? In a few weeks Ill have my hazmat gear because I want to be in top shape when I'm raiding progression but I know I could tackle that content without it.

Don't get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their opinion about worth/time invested... but for me is a sad thing that in 2 months without raiding you are pretty much bored because you can't get ANY better gear for your avatar. Most people need that carrot to continue playing and developers should hang farther and farther away little expansions of your gear to keep you on some kind of target to achieve. I have tons of friends that only play one character, they dont PVP and they are bored as hell because there is nothing PVE worthy to do, just farm money.

I dont really care if you are decked in epics or not, this game has me hooked with my alters, but I wish I had more things to do with my main. You casual crowd may hate me for saying this, but I miss some faction grinding, hardcore crafting and hard to get drops with my main. Everything comes too easy in this game and these prizes are, from my POV, a step in the right direction.

If it was only 150comms I would have 2 already.

I think you will find that you will get them within a reasonable amount of time.

Stuff shouldnt be handed out too fast. For new 50's they probably wont even bother with the BH ones, so its only a extra week or so to get the dread guard ones.

The price isn't the issue so much as the fact that the new implants aren't much of an upgrade. Single-digit stat bonuses for 10 times the price of BH implants just doesn't make sense. If the Hazmat implants were really an upgrade, I'd save comms for them. But it's just not worth it as is. You are better off tracking down a few stray datacrons.

I agree with all 3 guys above: new item should require work but benefit should be proportional as well, especially when new gear is not actually needed to complete TFB HM.
Instead this marginal gain for main character you could gear up alt via BoL gear for similar price and start doing TFB HMs. That's overly disproportional. Was it the intention behind?

The price is ridiculous for the trivial gain that you get. Might as well be priced as a bazillion for all of the sense that it makes.
