Just a quick note on the "pay-per-use barbershop" discussion. There have been no details on how character recustomization is going to be implemented. It may be that they'll try to charge real money per haircut (which would be a very very bad decision, in my opinion) or that they'll implement this in some other manner. But we don't know yet, so saying that this is the way it is going to be is incorrect, as it stands currently.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

The thing is that we're assuming the worst and they had ample time and opportunity to set this straight, instead they made 1 post confirming some of our worries
If we're wrong then fine, so be it and good but let them say that first. This "wait and see" attitude will be too late since I very much doubt we will see much info till they implement it

Humm, just a quick thought.
Since the majority of players are playing Imperial faction and across both factions more then 50% of the player base are playing full DS...

Why is it that there's such a heavy reaction to EAware making a typical Imperial Darksider move?
Commando [Gunnery] 60 , Sage [Seer] 60, Gunslinger [Sharshooter] 59, Sentinel [Watchman] 57, Vanguard [Shield Specialist] 60
Juggernaut [Immortal] 55, Sorcerer [Lightning] 60, Powertech 53, Operative 49

The wait and see approach is the only thing we can do at this point. We've been beating this horse since day one. We've given them plenty of ideas and options to consider and this is the one they chose. When it finally goes live, the only thing we can do it check it out, and if we don't like it, vote with our wallets and not buy it. At the end of the day, it's still EA. If they aren't making a decent return on investment, they'll change it ever so slightly until they do.

Wouldn't it be nice if they worked on the game rather than on microtransactions.

I would have been better if the game could have been supported through the subscription model. But since it wasn't, micro transactions become the game and vice versa. When it becomes overbearing, the game will start to whither and die. At that point, those that remain can only hope EAWare catches what's happening and cares enough to scale it back again.

This is exactly true. All the cool new items they added (like houses) were rare drops from the trading cards.

Right species change is a much needed and wanted thing say in future nautolans are added as playable species and lije me there ur favorite sw species I be dammed if im gonna reroll all 11 50s I have just to be my fav species and same goes for rhe others. For a premium fee in wow u can chabge ur race.

As for complaints bout being a store thing well what did u expect.having a sub doesnt entitle u to anything. I been subbed since launch and have subs to other mmo's technically speaking ur sub is actually a rental agreement ur renting the use of the servers or were until f2p. An agreenent bw/ea could terminate any time.

When game went f2p it was obvious many thibgs would end up in the market rather than a freebie in game option paywd via creds. Micro transactions are probs only thing keeping game alive and u no wot im glad its working. I can use market when I want as an extra to go with my sub
