Oh stop crying it's a very low form of p2w, and besides this might mean they'll add some higher tier of crystals. However, even if they don't it's far from everyone who want pay real credits for crystals, and the new flow of people who will come as a result of f2p can't use crew skills unless they buy them from the cartel market.

As a resolve there will be more plays and still the same number of crafters = More demand, which should at least outwight the sells you lose to the Cartel Market.

They did say the white crystal would be gone for a (long) while, which means by default it would return eventually. If people don't want to gamble they don't have to, they will have the option to buy it from GTN, price based on rarity.

Not exact words, but you get the jist.
Evil is a word used by the ignorant and the weak. The dark side is about survival. It's about unleashing your inner power. It glorifies the strength of the individual.

At some point, BW is going to have to bite the bullet and make desirable things exclusive.
"Being able to be RE'ed" is not the same as "dropping a schematic". You propably CAN reverse engineer it and it will only ever drop maybe 1-2 upari crystals at most...

Actually, as far as i remember the actual terminology they used was that they currently have no plans to readd them to the game once they are gone from the NPC. They didn't specify a (long) while. (But I believe they did indicate that their current planning only extended to either 1.4 or 1.5, so they definitely weren't ruling out the possibility).

and I just have to say, I wouldn't call ~6 months or so a "long while".

From what I've seen of the cartel pack awards, the biggest complaint I have is the rediculous overabundance of vehicles.

Some of the stuff looks pretty interesting, but you're going to get 50 vehicles before you get anything worthwhile...

And you only really need 1 vehicle, and they're cheap enough from the in-game NPC vendors. (hopefully, no cybertechs were actually selling them... don't think they were ever a worthwhile marked there, now almost certainly not)

Oh, you'd be surprised. Some people sold the 110% vehicle at 200k since the Voss speeders were ugly and people were willing to pay 75k extra for something less hideous.

Now those Cybertechs are going to be just fine because the new profit from Cybertech will be the 154 Armour rating droid parts. HK-51 in full Assassin Droid Parts =
