They've been doing a good job for the past few months -- aside from the obvious slow-down after 2.0 hit. I agree! It's making me much more optimistic about many aspects of the game.

Well, they still have Armor with mods and crystals with stats.... I am not saying its pay to win, but in reality, I am not a fan of stat boosting items that can be purchased outside of the game.

Thanks for the update BW...

I think even Bioware recognized the problem with the Armor. Since it came out there hasn't been anymore armor with mods already in it.

As far as the color crystal. Without major redesign (maybe the new dye system will fix this eventually) they were kinda backed into a wall in regards of how to make cool looking color crystals.

The only thing you "win" is some inexpensive mods... quickly outleveled and useless, except for the crystals. That said.. when any other player can purchase them right off the GTN... P2W becomes a vaporous petition IMO.

For the crystals.. they were backed into a design corner and rather then go the route they did with trying to make trade-in vendors for crystals as you level up (like they did with limited edition promotional crystals earlier).. they decided to make them level 10. They are not overpowering even for a level 10.... so they really contribute nothing to any pay-2-win scenario in any actual practical sense. Besides.. the heroic versions are worthless unless you are 55 now anyway and most people believe P2W mostly applies to PvP anyway.

You mean the level 20/40 armor shells that have mods that are rapidly out leveled? Yes truly Pay to win....

Oh wait the +41 crystals that can also be crafted by artifice with the same exact stats, the horror!

Those +41 Crystals for level 35 (level 10 for those in the packs) might beg to differ. While it might not get you a "Win", they certainly are equipment upgrades that have an impact at a fairly low level. Especially if you buy them for you and your companions.

Before the cartel market, +41 crystals were not even usable until level 50, and were expensive to buy in game or to craft.
