So I kinda have a question for BW, will we be able to purchase cartel coin "cards" at specific retailers? I for one don't like using my cc online, so if i were to purchase cartel coins, I would rather do so with cash...

Didn't like gamble-packs when City of Heroes did it but occasionally got the free ones that long-term subscribers could "buy" for free, not invested enough in this game to even consider it here, especially at the assumed prices I've seen so far.

My main interest has been in whether we'll see the chance to purchase more server slots and/or server transfers. Haven't seen anything about those, and can't get on PTS myself at the moment, does anyone know if they're in the lineup thusfar, and if so, and if they have a coin-price listed, what it is?

Alot of novilty items, alot of ok-ish gear, sabre crystals, mounts, pets.... I do see alot of people paying for this stuff. Hell im ashamed to say i will prob pay for some of this stuff and im going to remain a subscriber.

My one question is this, (prob me worrying over pointless details) as a subscriber i wont be needing to fork out Cartel coins for things like show legacy name, unify colours, hide helm slots etc etc right?

They may also want to consider lowering the credit cost for species unlocks (in game creds) and putting a cred cap for the F2P players. 320 CC seems a little low to me in my opinion.

Can't say I see anything I would want to spend any of my CC on.

3. The "packs" are crap. They are a cheap ploy to have people waste actual money to purchase the same crap over and over and over again hoping to get a specific item. Just let me buy what I want to buy.
4. The carbonite animation is absolutely awesome. Please remove the cool down so I can spam it over and over and over again and watch it.
Number 3 sounds just like the Mass Effect multiplayer spectre packs. That's the new trend in online fleecing. They say gambling is illegal, but alas, EA has perfected the art. It's a bunch of bollocks!

Nope, its the CCG without the first 'C'. They just want you to shell out the money without having to the go through the process of making some collectible cards.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but do we have to use Cartel Coins to but the access to get HK51? That's what it looked like to me in one of the images. If so I sure hope I have enough...

EDIT: Nevermind, I misread, subscribers get it
What a crazy random happenstance!

Wow, cartel coin packs are crap.
