Yeah and if he misworded what he was trying to say that is alright. My personal thing is we as CE owners should get updated vendors I don't know what we should get that is for Bioware to determine not me. I don't agree with people who think we should be getting a mega truck load of stuff every patch that is greedy.

I am glad we agreed on something though finding common ground is a step in solving problems

It's like buying a special edition or collectors edition movie from a famous director, and assuming that because you bought the CE, you get all his future movies free of charge. That's the stupidest and most selfish sense of greed and entitlement I've seen in a community. STO lifers are happy with what they get and they paid double what you did.
It's not greed at all. It is asking for what we were promised. We bought the CE for 3 things. 1 - The game, 2 - The Real Life Items, 3 - The CE store that we were told would have consistent additions that were unique to us. They don't HAVE to continually reward us, but if they don't add new and unique items to the store they will be going back on their word and making a lot of people unhappy with another broken promise.

When we get what we were told we were going to get, we will stop asking for more

He was still told that he will get more exclusive items when he was agreeing to buy the game.

We did get the Taunta. We are essentially saying right now that the updates are too slow/insufficient in scope(which they are) based on our personal impression of what we were told.

And... we did get exclusive items.

The real stump being watered here is people want more.... and more... and more.

Personally, As a CE owner... I don't care. If we get more perks on the vendor fine. If not, fine.. I did not buy the CE for a digital vendor with "content to be named later". I bought it for the real contents inside the box.

Ah but that is based on what we feel and it seems Bioware has stated I think it was in the livestream or something that they will be working on it. While it's nice to have the stuff updated this game has changed quite a bit from last year the CE store just might have fallen through the cracks.

I get what you're saying, but other people DID buy the CE for "content to be named later," and BW specifically stated they would continue to update the CE vendor. If BW never made that claim, then I would agree people have no issue. It was a false promise that they'd get something more, and they never did. I don't care about the gnost-durast journal or the Malgus statue. I actually wanted the in-game items that would continually be updated, even if it were mainly for convenience and looks rather than pay to win type items. We aren't asking for more stuff to be mailed to us because the initial contents weren't enough; we want the digital items we were told we'd would get. Heck, just give us some new orange gear or some color crystals that are cheaper in credits than what's available on the cartel market; that way, you get a perk, but it's not a gamebreaker, and it would mean BW lived up to their word. We're just asking to get what we were promised in the first place.

The last exclusive thing we had added was a Taunta pet. (1.2 I think) I haven't held my breath for them to add new content to it and won't be when January comes.

They already have our money, why bother showing any appreciation for it? It blows that they lied about the Vendor... but they broke a hell of a lot of other promises right along side of it.

It would be more accurate to say it blows that they don't update the CE vendor as often as some CE owners desire.

Until the game closes some years down the road and there were never any updates to the vendor, your statement is premature (as presented).

Please enlighten me and tell me when they EVER updated the vendor?

Never seems to be outside the parameters of a "realistic desire" on the part of CE owners.
