nevermind not worth it.
On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

You're digging into it a little bit much don't you think? You're over here getting mad because you're dreaming up BW charging extra for actual real in-game content in the future.

For starters a new race woold not be content as if the rest of the people in the thread wern't clear enough that you're standing alone raising that flag. That would be in the realm of fluff just like all of the other meaningless visual candy you get off the cartel market. Not including the fact even if you did consider it content, like was stated in the quote you get free cartel coins for subbing and that can be used to unlock with having to pay a cent extra. You wanting to blow through all of your free currency now on bags would be another matter.

The ball toss thing is TOTALLY a content item, and yes, I am completely serious! Best item on the market by far!!!

So, imo, they've already blurred the lines. /shrug
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

The strict definition of content doesn't port over seamlessly to the MMO world. By the definition you're speaking of, we shouldn't also have to pay for Crime Lord packs or anything that is technically included in the game.

That's just rude. Implying people are childish because they have a complaint, is just stupid. Address the topic or don't, no need to be rude.

Gaming Standpoint ?!? ROFL, please show me the dictionary for "Gaming Standpoints" so I can learn the proper definition of words...

People are willing to categorize stuff as "Fluff" to make themselves feel better about buying something they know should be part of the game.... Meanwhile Bioware / EA execs are going "SUCKERS"

I would argue that a new skin is purely 'cosmetic'. While it may be 'content' for people like RPers, to me, it's no different than a set of armor.

Well unless I missed something all subscribers received a certain amount of cartel coins based on subscription time and will continue to receive cartel coins for each month they are subscribed. Sounds like this is working as intended.
