I don't know about you but I sub for...

- Supporting the game over the long term. It's a product I like, and don't mind spending $15/mo to play it.
- Access to just about every restriction placed on free to play and preferred without having to spend a rather large amount of money at once. It's much easier for me to afford $15/mo until I no longer please, than it is for me to come up with the ~$100-$200 at once for all the account wide and character specific legacy unlocks.

I don't sub for...
Entitlement reasons.
Special privileges.
The right to complain about how f2p has ruined every aspect of the game, from ninja looters to server stability, and continued development of the cash shop.

This is ridiculous. Why would you treat subscribers like f2p players?

And only 25 fireworks? For god sakes....

Even if you ignore what Bioware EA said about subscribers and content............ having to pay on top of a subscription for holiday "event" items is just plain wrong, never mind pay SO MUCH for them.

There is no justification for this, there is only pure out and out milking of customers (or an attempt anyway, I see this blowning up in their faces to be honest).
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Yes, you can buy them for millions of credits. Lol.

Apparently you must be new, or have no idea what does event mean.
There were 2 events so far, both were gated with new quest appearing each day, and any writeups were appearing as it went, never before.

Loads of bickering and arguing here, as always. The have and the have-nots going to war. Cash shops are poison plain and simple. It is corruption at its purest form. People support them and people don't. But it's the people who support and use them that help spread the disease.

"But these cash shops help keep the game alive and improve it!" some people say.

Really? So you think that a company that is being controlled at it's highest levels by the most greedy deceptive corporation, well one of em at least, in the business isn't going to continue to force anything that players would want or find tempting at all straight into the cash shop?

Like EA is going to say "Hey fellow pig dogs, look at all this money pouring in from our gambling packs and recolored armors that are already in the game!" and then say.
"Ok, we made enough money for now, hey Bioware!"

"Yes my dark lords of satan!" Jeff Hickman replies.

"We have made enough money this year from your silly online game, you can release future content straight into the game for now." EA great satan says.

"Oh thank you my lord!" Hickman snivels as he shuffles into the shadows.

Yeah, I highly doubt it. All this cash shop will reinforce is that they can make a lot more money at a faster rate then subscribers paying their fees. It will show the pigs at the top that too. Which will and has already lead to things being directly funneled into the shop and not the game, via Life Day Items, Cathar, and whatever else will pop up in it and not the actual game.

"Well troll, the players don't have to buy them if they don't want them." or "The player doesn't have to buy them, they can wait till it gets put on the GTN for a incredibly retarded amount of credits."

True and true. But that player and other players like him/her might buckle in the desire for said content and pay which just helps spread the disease. Or certain players might buy said content for the sole reason of selling it on the GTN to fatten their virtual pockets, which in turn also spreads the corruption of the cash shop.

This is why f2p and sub/cash shop games are a virus infecting and destroying this once great genre of gaming. And we are all already infected.
