So the part that it looks like it's not working as intended means what? It should only change repair prices for moddable gear, that's not happening. Also the costs are high for fresh 50s and people still leveling and they don't need to be and people don't like it sooooooooooo why leave it in?

I had 1,8 millions hitting 20 due to a lucky sale of a crystal in the GTN, I have 1,83 millions now, hitting 45. Why would I lie?
Why would I lie? It doesn't matter whether you want to believe me or not, but:
Level 28 Sentinel - 141,675 C
Level 41 Shadow - 532,767 C
Level 23 Sorcerer - 120,719 C

In terms of our casual progression/raiding guild. I have not heard anything in regards to us stopping our normal gameplay and noob 50 alt progression runs. In fact, we are in the process of forming a second progression run group now.

But the bigger issue here that a small gameplay change was made that wasn't entirely necessary and most people don't like it, why not get rid of it?

Also it's not working the way it should(should only change modded gear repair prices but it's not), and not effecting everyone the same way which would mean it's a bug.
Then those people will have to adapt to the changes of being 50.

Seriously? That was to point out that what they intended obviously is working how it was supposed to. I've been paying 40-50k the repair bills while all these people have been having 5k repair bills for a good chunk of time. How's that for effect? But guess what. I didn't complain. I made money.

And as I said before I care enough that people enjoy the game so I posted how I make money. And it is 0 effort. Literally 2 clicks and 7k in your wallet 5 mins later. But yes. I don't care.

Allow me to educate you on the difference. I have in no way complained about it. I have pointed out why it is a bad system. At no point did I say "oh no, I will never be able to keep up" or anything like that. I pointed out where the system falls flat and from a game design point of view, fails.

take 2 hours out of your time, run the belsavis daily, black hole daily, sector x daily, and ilum daily, are not hard, and can easily be solo'd by every class. Easier for stealth, but still easy.

~80k Ilum
~100k Black Hole
~ 80k Sector X
~ 250k Belsavis
~ Daily Flashpoint 17k + turn in quest another 17k
~ Weekly Flashpoint 20-30k

thats about 570k

Repair bill of tionese near yellow, 25k. Repair of columi 30k.

Its not that difficult.
