It was never unintentional. Like I said before, these changes are even noted in the patch notes.

But yes, once real money was exchanged, the old switcheroo by BW is *FRAUD*. Its pretty much the e-version of BAIT AND SWITCH.

This change was unintentional and will be corrected in a future patch. Apologies for the inconvenience.
I just spent real money so I could BUY the gear since I prefer it post change, what is to be done about this?
Since the changes were MENTIONED IN PATCH NOTES I can't see how they were "unintentional."
After reading the patch notes I forked out cash to get the items BECAUSE they had been changed.
Are people in my situation to be taking into consideration?

"Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything."
"But the plans were on display ..."
"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."
"That's the display department."
"With a flashlight."
"Ah, well the lights had probably gone."
"So had the stairs."
"But look, you found the notice didn't you?"
"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard'."

Therefore, a person should really (really) think twice before committing large sums of money for specific items.
Except Bioware themselves know that a very small minority of their player base check their forums. This is true for any game.

This is why patch notes and maintenance schedules and other very important information is also listed on the launcher of the game.

If you want to get technical, its called the SpyMASTER set. A spymaster is the person who runs a spying operation, like M, not Mrs. Peel. The Spymaster set now, correctly and appropriately, looks like a variant of the Imperial uniform. By the way, there is an excellent, sleek, close fitting, spy-style outfit in the game since launch. Hardweave Jacket and Hardweave Leggings, avaialble for the Agent and Warrior. I know it won't make you feel any better about the situation, but since you are obviously interested in this style of armor I thought I would let you know about it.

And so therefore Artwork shown on the cartel pack advertising image is demonstrably unreliable and should not be used as reference for how the items in the packs will look like, correct?

So it would be far better for one to use the preview window perhaps?

Don't worry, it WAS intentional and they won't undo the changes, you are safe.

  • The Stylish Dancer Outfit (white) is in the Blockade Runner pack, but it was mistakenly used on the Skip Tracer pack art. The Fancy Reveler Outfit is red and included in the Skip Tracer pack. The artwork for the Skip Tracer pack will be updated to show the appropriate outfit in a future patch.
We apologize for any inconvenience. In the future, we will ensure that all assets are in alignment on the Cartel Market. The final products are meant to look like the advertised art.

Personally, I am loving the new look.

If there were no advertised examples of the "fixed" version, chances are this is the original look of the trailblazer. Them changing trailblazer now only reinforces the notion that they will be adamant about sticking to their original designs on future products.

Oh really? Because the in-game icons matched the outfit pieces prior to this "fix" and they do not now. If the "new" Phantom chest piece is the correct one, then it should have the icon to indicate it, which is the same one as Investigator's/Revan's/Grand Inquisitor's and a bunch of others. It does not. It has the icon of the "wrong"/"old" phantom chest piece. Same goes for the gloves; there's no backwards syringes on the icon, yet the model itself has those now. Spymaster is similar in this regard.
