"I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if the few hundred voices of the remaining subs suddenly cried out in terror and went Mooooooooo. I fear something terrible has happened."

Warned all of you months ago this was incoming.
Soon™ you will be paying for those new Quests, Fp's and Ops with your CC and the apologist's will continue to defend ever single decision.

But we will be getting new titles for free with our subs:

"The Fleeced"
"The Hosed"
"The Gullible"

And for those who bought the DD or CE:

" The Jersey"
"The Holstein"
"The Shetland"
"The Southdown"

Please just tell me that if the ability to alter our looks has to come through the CM that it will be a straight purchase not a rare item lumped in one of the lottery packs. Or needing so many packs bought to earn rep to be able to use it.

I paid $10 for the expansion. Other game expansions charge $40-$60... I'm obviously paying more. Yet you're sure none of that surplus is for new races? Because one of the selling points in those expansions is "Play as this new race". So, if it's selling point, it must be part of the cost.

Wow charges you if you want a *complete* recustomization (anything other than hair). It's $15.

The barber shop gives you choices of a few hairstyle changes and earring changes for the few races/gender combos that allow it.

Please can I be ripped off more, I love it!

I don't know why you are complaining about having to pay for game features two, three, four times; you are just greedy, self-absorbed, simpering sycophants.

Poor EAware is in desperate need of more money so stop whining and pay them, anyone would think we are in the depths of a global recession!

Cartel Market is great value for money and enticing people to gamble is good because Star Wars said so.

Barber shop available only via cartel market? I hope that's just a poorly/quickly formed post that failed to deviate the species change from regular body changes like hair or eye color.

If its not the case, lets take a look at some other MMORPG's:

1. The largely hated WoW: Only race change costs money, rest is bought used in game currency.

2. Rift: I'm unaware if race change is available, but last year when I was playing a barbershop was available to change body features using in currency.

3. Lord of the rings online: No race change, but hair and facial features changeable via in game currency.

I really hope that I misread the statement about how they are going to implement the barbershop feature and this is just being blown out of per portion.

Obviously you haven't actually played WoW...as I just said in the last post, everything change *except* hair style and color change costs real money. Race change, gender change, faction change, skin color change, face change in most cases (some races have an extra button like horn/jewelry change that you can use in the barber shop). Poor blood elves all pretty much look identical except for hair, anyway.

Star Trek and Champions Online also let you change gear and features for free for the first time and then in-game money after that. You can buy costume packs from their stores.

Which is what we don't get for in-game currency in SWTOR but have to pay for through the CM. And it sucks.
