Thank you!
Sorry, for me this is unacceptable.

We were teased with a Life Day event from the Livestreams, not a Cartel Market event.

I remember Life Day being much more thoughtful in SWG, where FREE gifts were given to players, one to keep, and another to give to a friend. A great way to thank good friends or to make new ones !

We don't even get a Xmas event if I'm reading the post from JovethGonzalez correctly. However, there is an in-game event planned after the holidays, where no doubt the Cartel Market will seek to squeeze more cash from the player base.

I'm just so disappointed that Life Day turns out to be an unashamed grab for real money and there's nothing at all (currently announced) to celebrate the Holiday Season in this Scrooge of a game.

Bah humbug !
Agree completely about Life Day, but then again SWG was a different game and a much different time.

why has this thread been reduced?

EA stop mass editing forums when they don't like something

"The stuff we're doing for life day".... Makes it sound like the event it actually is.
"Also available in a cartel pack".... Makes it sound like there is an alternative way of obtaining the items.

please be clearer in future to avoid such a disappointment say something like "Only available on the Cartel Store".

from seeing what was implemented I can see what you were trying to say but it came across very differently.

Ye they have strung us along there, clever wording while not commiting.

But the post from bioware in this thread has blown all the people who said still 2 weeks till christmas lifeday will come theorys out of the water hasnt it.

As for people blaming bioware turn your eyes to EA, EA that didnt listen to the players in warhammer online, EA that dont listen to there players with the fifa games or the NHL games, EA that not only didnt listen to its battlefield players but also decided to milk them, the same EA that has released nearly the same need for speed under a different title for the past 5 years, the same EA that helped with ME3 and its superb ending....

Funcom must be dreading things knowing EA has its claws into the secret world.

EA's tactic is buy up as many good development studios like bioware as they can in a hope there good rep will help save EA's rep, but instead they just give there bad name to good studios.

What happened to the pre-release assertion that there would indeed be holiday events (Life Day being specifically noted), and furthermore that there would not be allusions to the real world equivalent celebrations?

This is really good news. Back before TOR launched they said they weren't going to have any real life holiday events and I'm glad to see they're sticking to that. Seeing Christmas trees sitting around the Imperial Fleet would be horrible.

You do realize that nearly all of the in-game items allude to Christmas and not Life Day, yes? Christmas lights and snow on a speeder, red robes, tinsel bombs...
