So I will abstain until this changes.
Why don't you just give the junk away?

I've started standing around at fleet advertising my lower level alt as a "junk dealer". He'll take anything you want to dump on him. If some people don't have the patience for the GTN and are willing to give up the meager profits they can make off of this "junk" I will gladly take on the burden.

And I know there must be others like me on other servers.

What server? Do you pay for the junk?

Maybe it is time I start up my smuggler.

The Harbinger. No, I don't pay for it. It's a service for those who would otherwise destroy their junk one at a time. Trading it to someone is simply a faster way to get rid of it.

But so much of it is useless junk that everyone has (or can buy really cheap) already. I'm talking about dozens and dozens of emotes, banners, etc. (Yes, I've splurged because I wanted an overlord throne). For me, it's an issue of convenience. It's only a few seconds, but at a vendor, I can dump a bunch of crap fast. By having to destroy, that's a drag and drop, drag and drop, annoying process. At least let me get more cargo holds (I have 5 now which is the max and they are full - also a MAJOR crafter with each alt. Again)

Well, until they allow it to be vendor trashed (which I don't think they'll ever do) it's faster to dump it on someone like me than destroy it one piece at a time.

They need some kind of currency that comes with every pack you open. If if the pack contains nothing but junk you'll still get a coin or something that you can accumulate to spend on a special vendor that has neat things. Even some lotteries work this way to at least give you the feeling that you're still getting something out of it.

I too have spent real money on a good number of packs(20-30) and recieved absolutely nothing of value out of any of them to the point I totally stopped buying them. Can't even give stuff like speeders away because the only people that would really benefit are f2p players and they can't trade. Bioware is probably missing a lot of potential money because of it.

All packs in some MMO's are percentage based sometimes youll get good stuff sometimes you wont but hold on to your things as yet they may not sell for alot or at all but even the smallest credit amount stacks up and someone will want them in the future
