I think this is good. It kills the argument (almost) that there needs to be a way to earn cartel coins in game.

I've seen Section X (account) for like 350K on Jedi Covenant, it's incredible value considering it's access for ALL your characters.

I think they do the same with Makeb

This is indeed a design if it works out well.

But i have to wonder if subbed players will be properly motivated to put mundane stuff like character unlocks up on the GTN. Especially for the more expensive stuff like the section X unlock, would a subbed player be willing to spend 600 cartel coins for a chance of selling it for at most 350k creds?

They where a million on Ebon Hawk recently and I thought that's not right as well preferred and F2P haven't access to that sort of money . Then it dawned on me if someone wants to buy it for a friend or if a person was thinking of unsubbing they could buy before they unsub , problem solved. I'm sure they are cheaper today though and probably about 800 k.

Cheers,

I've seen tons of those on the AH in the 100k-150k range.

You only get 2 toons as a f2p. Comes down to 175k per toon. Thats about an average price.

The account unlocks, apply to all the characters on your account as the name suggests, so if you buy another character slot in the future, they will have all those unlocks, not absolutely sure however, Bioware should confirm

Meh, if they remove the middle man (ie. sell directly from CM for credits) then I may be sold on staying. Hoping that stuff shows up on GTN isnt my idea of good treatment of subbers IMO.

Though I guess its still better than 100% CM exclusives so good on Bioware.

As a sub player I put up a lot of stuff onthe GTN from the packs because I don't need most of it. I just want the throne. I have put every single speeder on the GTN that I have gotten and will get. Why? I have the CE speeder. I do not like pets in a sci-fi game. So the only things I actually use are the weapons.

I like this set-up. With all the gift items, I can max out companion affection easier. Experience boosts are a help, and I can sell stuff I do not want. Once the item pool evens out, I will sell some stuff again. So for some people, you do not even need to spend Cartel points on some items because I will be selling my extras.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix 7/30/15 Returned for KotFE. Finally, a story expac.
