I have over 20 characters between the Live Servers and the PTS, so even if I could afford the coinage per character, I would not spend it anyway. It would be unfair to hold BW responsible for the number of characters I choose to create and play with, so basing pricing off of just one is acceptable.

Otherwise, where would we draw the line? The two characters that F2Pers get? That would still piss off the people with 8 characters (one of each base class). So we draw the line at 8 toons. What happens then to the players who have 12 toons (the current default for subs on a single server). So we allow the pricing to encompass those players. That still leaves out the players who have 16 characters - 8 on a PvE server and 8 on a PvP server. What about 24 toons - 12 on each? And so on, until either the pricing has to be raised enough to not make it worth purchasing at all, or the cost of the items is so diluted as to not make it worth selling to begin with.

Would it be nice if the Armor was bound to accounts so that all toons could use it? Yeah, but again, the way the game was designed, that would be unreasonable, imo, not to mention useless for many of my toons anyway. It seems to me most of the CM items are not bound to a single character outside of the armor (which makes sense to me), so I would only need to purchase one item anyway and transfer it between characters as I play, if I wanted to.

So what would you say was an unreasonable price per charater?

It's between 2400CC and 5500CC obviously.

I've been playing MMOs a really long time, and seen some pretty weird stuff, Trammel/Felucca, TOA, NGE, amongst others, but what i have seen EA do to their last two big (huge) budget MMOs really takes the cake.

Good luck, and thanks for all the fish..
Yeah it's somewhat amazing they've already manage to plumb new depths that they didn't even manage with WAR.

I was kinda expecting to see this sort of thing by next Christmas, but certainly NOT before this Christmas.

This was there chance to make an event to for the players to remember the game first year by and they did nothing.
You pay a sub for access to the game, all fun is charged for extra on the Cashshop. That's unfortunately how it is with SWTOR now.

An event to earn those items would have been much better, but I would have much, much preferred a bug-fix package for Christmas. If it gets the job done, I'd rather donate for bug fixes than pay for toys.
The cost per character is completely bonkers.

There's simply NO justification for it (which is why I suspect no one at Bioware EA has tried here).

Well, you can buy the Life day boots for 70 K and the lower robes for 200 K on GTN on my server at least. I wouldn't be surprised if the price went down a little actually but we will see where it ends up.

Really? In my experience most MMOs are in the same state SWTOR is in at year one. Scrambling to make content for the impatient masses. In any event, we've gotten plenty of permanent pets, titles, etc. over this year. I have two pets, a jawa, and various titles.

I know that most MMO players live by the Janet Jackson maxim of "What have you done for me lately?" However, we have received plenty of crap that most people I see in game don't even use.

The cheapest Life Day item of clothing on my server is a pair of Life Day boot for 440,000 Credits.

There are 7 Life Day items of clothing in total, with the most expensive being 700,000 Credits.
