It's still pay to by pass:

Game rules
Gates to succes

And gains undeserved bennifits equal to those that put in the effort to achieve the same.

It's still P2win. If you put lipstick on a bantha that doesn't make it a tauntaun.

The content of your post is ridiculous, only quoting the last bit as you seemed to be repeating yourself a lot, and didn't seem to understand the point you quoted. I'll now clarify - we pay a sub - we've paid our share of the costs, whatever they may be. Only f2p people should be getting directed to the cash shop.

CAUTION: DO NOT LOAD SWTOR UNLESS YOU HAVE AFTER-MARKET COOLING INSTALLED!!

Yeah it is still absolutely P2W.

It's a much more cunning method commecially though, as it deflects a lot of the criticism (as we've seen) because it allows them to just lenghten the grind to make more people directly buy them.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

I expect the grind to be cut in an upcoming patch - but you should still expect to have to work for them. Perfectly fair, imo.
LOL mistake??? ..... intented imo.

How much ppl bought the pack from the cartel shop ? atleast hundreds, easy money for ea.

Yeah I think it was a "test" to be honest.
