I'm not sure what I am supposed to take away from this beyond a pseudo-subtle attempt at questioning my intelligence. But if the developers are too lazy/inept/poorly directed to implement proper challenge within the content it's really not a requirement that I find my own within the confines of their game.

If I absolutely love the game despite all it's flaws I might be inclined to do so. (And, in fact, in this game when leveling alts I try to never out level the story content as I play through it so that every encounter is at least somewhat challenging.)

But short of trying content with fewer people than recommended (which I have done before,) or trying content using less than my best gear (naked pvp anyone?) I don't see what obligation I have to challenge myself within the confines of the game.

Furthermore, I don't see how this is at all relevant to a discussion about repair costs, money sinks, content gating, repetitive grinding, or any of the other myriad topics that have obliquely been referenced to in this ongoing debate.

That enabled anyone to challenge themselves however they wanted.

Dont use stims, heal packs, companions etc. It isnt that hard. do 3 man hm runs. there are a lot of ways to increase your challenge. stop trying to force your vision of what a game should be on everyone else. you were the one that complained that the game was too easy. Some people play for the social interaction, not for frustration or to be a rat on a treadmill.

I still don't see how this pertains to the debate in question. There is something potentially wrong with repair costs and a decent portion of us would like to know what is going on.

In no way have I tried to dictate how they create the challenge in this game beyond expressing a desire to not be forced to do repetitive content I don't enjoy in order to experience the content I do enjoy.

sorryif I am responding to the wrong person. I agree there is something seriously wrong with repair costs and the devs should be ashamed for not even responding about the problem.

I checked it was 3.9 k for 2 companion deaths and 2 of my deaths and got 6 k for the reward so all is good , 44 affection for m1-fx and my 3 belsavis comms . Nothing to see here , unless they stealth re-fixed it ?

Cheers,

I think they could recover a lot of good will with a simple post: "We ****ed up and tonight we will revert the change to what it was in 1.6 even though it will undo our plans to create more money sinks and grinds. This was a boneheaded move that wasted our the valuable time of our employees and customers. Please accept our apologies."

Wholeheartedly agree.

if there's one thing SWTOR needs it's more credit sinks ...... /off sarcasm

Repair costs are too expensive.

They. Just. Are.
