So... you wanna pay 5$ more to get ALL the Cartel Shop items?

You do realise it costs 15$ for 1 set of Cartel Armor... I'm sure they're gonna wanna stick with this model...

So, player hatred (which isn't as bad as you're getting at) against F2P'ers and the F2P concept is what is Bioware's motivation for doing this?

Haha, I laugh at how silly that notion is.

Edit: To do this Bioware would be admitting that their F2P concept is flawed. They're not going to do that.

Keep in mind this wouldn't replace the current model, but compliment it, by simply offering an alternative.

So...in a way, a lot like servers as they currently are? You do realize that most things in the market can be traded, right? I'd much rather take my chances with the market equilibrium price than some arbitrary and static number created to obtain these items.

I don't see the need for such a server unless you want a gaming experience that is exclusive of the F2P players. Why no cartel market access? If you don't like the cartel market, don't use it. It doesn't interfere with your game experience.
I'll take the stupid one, who decided to threaten us rather than shoot us
when he had the chance.

They tried this in Everquest with a server called Stormhammer. if i remember right, it lasted about 3 months before the server died a lonely death. meanwhile EQ is still alive.

so i vote No.

Won't happen and shouldn't happen. Not worth the wasted time, money, and effort by BW/EA to implement such a server. If you would like to obtain cartel unlocks purely by investing time in the game you already can, farm credits and buy the items on the GTN.

Agreed

That's a very broad statement (apart from being completely incorrect, in my opinion).
