Buy Credits with Cartel Coins

First, let me say that I have four level 50s, two on each side. I'm tired of grinding dailies and buying countless packs just to get nothing of value! (which is another story.) Basically, I think dailies take too long, and would love to buy credits with coins, similar to GW2 gold for Gems.

I've made the same suggestion the other day.
So here is again my YES WE WANT to "Credits for Cartel Credits"

You can already do this. Pick an item on the Cartel Market, buy it, then sell it on the GTN.

Packs are about 300,000 credits or more per pack.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

That's nice. Then there should be no Problem having Credits.

I'd rather buy Cartel Coins with Credits. But then again, what ever I want from the market will eventually end up on the GTN

Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?

This is just a horrible idea.

Reason -> The game as it is needs credit sinks to destroy existing currency to control inflation as currency is created in the system. Just having a "add currency to the economy" button is one of the worst ideas I've heard here in a long time. It's entirely generated currency, it doesn't come from anywhere. --> Massive Runaway Inflation

Just buy something from the market and sell it on the GTN, it's not that hard.

Pretty much this.

The reason GW2 is able to do it is because the in game currency value of gems fluctuates based on amount of gems in the system. Which basically means the more gems there are in the system less in game currency you get in trade. And it's a HORRIBLE return. It would be like... You shelling out $20 for 500k SWTOR credits in comparison.

Stick to flipping via selling the Cartel items available.

Bad idea. Right now, Cartel Market is a cash cow for novelty gifts and stuff that can help you level faster, but not really make you better than anyone.

You do a direct cartel coin to credit exchange and that IS pay-2-win, which despite what people say, really hasn't happened yet.

So no, don't want it - and trust me, I understand its convenience. But just because something is convenient doesn't mean its what's healthiest for the game.
