Occupy TOR! We are the 1% of subscribers!

Oh wait, no, just live with it. Games are made to make money. If that's wrong then you can go and create a no profit game. Let me know how that goes.

It's not a GIFT if you have to buy it.

If there's no event to do for Life Day then it's a blatant cash grab, and pure greed on BW's part. It's not really keeping the spirit of the season either.

It's just unreal how anyone could find this okay.

Do you think there's any chance the event is coming a bit later as a surprise?

You shortsightedness is terryfying. You know that if not for cartel market we would get all theese things as quest rewards or from vendor? Nobody would have to pay real money for them.

Personally i will boycott this whole mess.

You can earn the space stuff. You can purchase them in-game either through daily comms, fleet comms, and likely credits via the GTN.

Sure, you can also buy them off the cash shop, but that doesn't mean you have to.

The claim was that by us seeing available items in the cartel market, there's no way anything EAware does for us is a secret anymore.
I know what a Ninja is, but if I don't see one in the shadows about to kill me, it's still a secret.
I know where Las Vegas is, but if I don't know my best friend has plane tickets and a hotel booked for my birthday there, it's still a secret.
I know what's in the Cartel Market, but if I don't know what I could be getting (if anything), come closer to Life Day... it's still a secret. Just like in the theme of the holiday it's modeled after.

Having just looked at the Life Day items in game, it would be more like your wife letting you buy a SNES for PS3 prices, then giving you another SNES on Christmas day.

Wow they are expensive for what they are.

(Personally I'd pretty sure what you, me and everyone else will be getting for Life Day - the same thing as naughty kids supposedly get at Christmas )
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Greed, it's just greed.

Just look at prices of useless fireworks . And Blockade Runner Cartel Pack for 360cp... And other new prices...

Your $15 a month does not give you access to everything in the game and it never has.
Below this is my referral link. If you press it you get free stuff and I get free stuff. This makes you, me....and Bioware happy, but don't let that stop you!
