You would think with all the discussion that the Scrooges at BW would step up and fix this holiday debacle.
SW:TOR will be released Soon TM

I don't understand some of the posts here. It sounds like alot of people were expecting an event, but they already stated there would be no holiday events.

Really dissapointed with Bioware, i love the game and with it going free to play, i was extremely worried about it's future. I believe an actual event should of been created and the items sold for life day should of been obtainable for free. An event should be there to bring people into the game, to lure the back, not to pick the pockets of your loyal player base.

You have already made sure to make free to play people pay for every silly little thing in order to become subscribers (titles, hide head slot, ui bars, ability to wear artifact items, to name a couple). The items sold in the cartel shop should be there to compliment things in game, your already making sub money, the extra cash should be there to make sure the game remains healthy, not pick the players pockets before you scuttle the ship.

As for the items you chose, as others have stated they didn't feel very inkeeping with life day and the lore, a red santa like costume and already ugly speeder covered in christmas lights and then some confetti, it felt over priced, i really regret buying it, infact i'm ashamed i did.

Correction - they stated real world holidays would never be implemented. In the same breath, Daniel Erickson stated that SW:TOR would have holidays specific to Star Wars, pointing out Life Day, specifically.

Instead, we have no event and disrespectful allusions to Christmas abound (tinsel, Christmas lights and snow have nothing to do with Life Day).

Well then I think there's no need to worry, as Star Wars holidays are coming just don't have a date set. Glad that's cleared that up for everyone. As life day is celebrated on kashyykk every 4 years, maybe we have to wait until that planet is in game.

As you can clearly see the event is in the game. On the shop. Which is what no one wanted. Another classic example of Bioware not listening to a thing we tell them and doing whatever they want then being shocked at the outrage and backlash.

Glad to see your rose-coloured glasses are in good condition. Mine were busted, recently. BioWare stated they were developing a Life Day event. What we got was Cartel Shop content, in lieu of that. Content is being developed for the Cartel Shop instead of the core game, rather than in addition to it. That's a problem.

i can accept that we did not get an event this year, but a life day gift in mail form would have been sufficent. After all i got some fireworks for the new years already.

Not a big fan of everything being on the cartel market.

SWG did have the TCG game to get gear and items but not all new gear and items were from the TCG, holidays items of all things should be obtained by festive questing or at least gifted to the playerbase if they dont want to do an event, but paying for holiday items is a bit much frankly....of course, i bought some of that stuff so i guess they know what they are doing.
