2400CC for the pack is 4 months worth of subscriber coins if you have a 6 month recurring sub (it's many more months if you have a 3 month or 1 month recurring one).

That is horribly, horribly, horribly expensive for the sort of stuff that is given free to subscribers in all most ALL other MMORPGs (what's worse is on the store the "claim" it's 35% discounted from 3750CC per pack which is shadey in itself).

600CC per character would have been at the steep end IMO.
Ohh... I meant new items to the Cartel Store and not the specific Life day robes.

Well, we will see if they perhaps lower the prices on the robes, or perhaps they drop from the new pack and you might find them on the GTN. Good luck!

Also 1.6 a PvP patch. They added new tiers of gear, new instances and made steps as balance. People should be happy they added anything new beyond that. It sure wasn't expected.

Enough people will buy the stuff so that we all get new content. That's not insulting, that's a business folks
These 6 weeks patch are 1 big patch broken up to last longer

Maybe but pure speculation on your part.

However, you're still getting content at roughly every 6 or so weeks. Thats a good thing.

General new items are fine as they are.

Limited Time items need at least some warning to allow people to save for them before the are removed.

Probably both need a price cut.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

So the renewed Ilum, the new planet, the new Expertise set up, new species, higher character lvl (55), new abilities, and 2013 events are all already completed?

That's all rhetorical. I don't believe anyone really thinks that the developers have enough resources to have already created a years worth (or even 6 months worth) of content at a time.

Time to start looking for a new game.
But we did get a new PvP War Zone today. It looked pretty cool earlier so I might give it a try. If we are unhappy with not getting an event we should at least acknowledge that we got new content to the game today.

It might not be something for me since I don't PvP very often, but I don't begrudge the PvP:er to get something new every now and then.

A calculatedly high cost to mean you cannot save up for them within the "limited time" without paying more cash as a subscriber.
Then don't buy it if it's too rich for you. Pretty simple.

Go enjoy the new WZ and gear. Merry Christmas and it cost you no CC and was included in your sub.

If you look at the content over 6 months, or the total content over 12 months and break it up monthly it's pretty much the same IMO.

I don't think we're getting more content we're getting it in littler chunks and more regular intervals.

But none of that excuses the Life Day debacle IMO.
