I was pissed at first too, and expressed this ni this thread, because I felt that BW is making an event that requires you to spend CC to enjoy it.
But then I went to sleep, got over it, looked at whole case calmly, and yep, it all makes sense.
So to say - there is no life day in old republic era. Many people hated ida of introducing it to SWTOR, others hated any Christmas-related event, and yes, there is no event. There is no story behind it. There are only fluff items themed in a way people want to see, and money flow.
.
This is true - as I said before, maybe if we actually had Kashyyyk where the only inhabitants who know of Life Day would be able to say something about it could work, but Life Day was not recognized anywhere else in the galaxy at this time. The items are also not content. I still think it would have gone a long way in good faith to put a couple of things things in game for subscribers to run around and have fun with without paying, but I do think some people overreacted to this a bit just because "Every other game is doing a Christmas event OMG" or "SWG had Life Day!" (where it actually made sense to have the holiday unlike here).

Big deal. If you want to celebrate life day spend the CC you get with your sub and RP it up with your buddies.

No Christmas event? Good, there shouldn't be. We're a long time ago in a friggin' galaxy far, far away. Watch that crappy old special on youtube if you need your fix.

But game ______ haz X-mas stuff? What're you playing this for then? Shove off matey and go play some ______.

Even though the items are totally crap and I'm not even remotely interested in obtaining any of them, they SHOULD be obtainable through in-game means.

Absolutely, so now we have to pay for event stuff too? Plus the P2W ship parts insult?

I have been a big fan of this game and a loyal subscriber since launch, but if this is a taste of what BW/EA are planning for the game, a cash shop centered game where you have to pay for every single thing and to add insult to injury, P2W items on the store, yeah, NO MORE.

There are plenty of games out there with none of this stupid non-sense.

They are obtainable through in-game means it is called the GTN which you use credits you earned in-game to buy things from. It seems to work since I just sold my life day clothes on the GTN yesterday.

No. Actually, what we feared. Well, expected, was Pay-to-Win. Life day isn't that. But the ship enhancements...

Well done, EA. Well done. You implemented P2W on the second F2P expansion, just as I predicted.

And you trust them to do this? Eaware has "said" a lot in the past and have nothing to show for it.
