Because you have to use them for in-game content that was free for subs before going F2P.

So they're not free. You required to spend them for in-game content. They'd be free if you could use them for anything OTHER than in-game content.

Gear, speeders, mounts, vanity items.... all those were free to subs before the game went F2P.

In-game currency only or quest rewards, like it should be.

While I first read it I was like "Great! That is awesome!" But then I took a closer look. "...using Cartel Coins." To me this seems like too much. But first lets talk about the species change. To me that shouldn't happen because it isn't "realistic" but I found that it could be ok. The other things like hair, body, and eye color was all fine. But why with CC? This game is turning into "Your a sub but you have to pay MORE real money for basic features like a barber shop!" I could understand the species thing being in the CM, but ALL of the barber shop?! That is going too far. What next? Having to pay money for certain class abilities in the CM? Whether you think so or not barber shops ARE basic features. Personally I think they should've been ingame since launch. But why do we, the players, have to pay MORE money to you for a basic feature?

I think that they should change this before they release it. BW should either take out species changing or leave it in the CM... BUT make the rest of the "Barber Shop" not cost CC. Make it ingame currency. If they don't I'm not sure how much more I can take.
Yes all these new CC market ONLY features are hugely disappointing. A guild member just quit the game specifically because of the CC market reputation. This is EXACTLY the type of bs we were expecting when F2P was originally announced.

Some of us have been subbed since day one and played through underpopulated servers and 6 months between new content. ALL features should be available to subscribers .. otherwise why should i be subscribed, it'd probably be cheaper to just buy weekly OPS passes ( I can live without PVP ).

Again this is hugely disappointing news

The small additions like this will be based around the CM for profit
I don't think anybody is surprised, just voicing concerns that if they take it too far they will just cripple the game again in the long run.

I'd like to interupt regular thread topic programming for a public service announcement:

Announcing:
"We have our latests and greatest forum complaint_de-jour"

That is all.... please return to regular thread topic programming.

Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

This is exactly why the subs dropped, and the way they are implementing the CC market they will drop more, but the good thing is that all the ppl who buy a lot on the CC will remain and that's what the game will turn into.
It only takes one candle to scare away the dark, or just hire a Bounty Hunter....

An often used doomsday warning in the forum since the cartel market launched 5 Earth Moons ago.
