Isn't Patch 2.2 meant to feature no Cartel features whatsoever?

Anyway, I am very much looking forward to making a few Cathar characters and with the dye finally being able to use the Bounty Hunter armor I want (Any piece I find for her has usually got some purple on it somewhere... oh how I hate purple )

A lot of these bugs and issues could have been fixed sooner but with the addition of dyes and other customization options, plus the fix of a lot of high-priority issues (yes, including bolster, now shut up about it) this is definitely one of the best patches this game has had. We like content, but at some point QoL simply becomes a higher priority.
Tbh, I was surprised at how much they did get in this patch and I'm looking forward to everything including the bug fixes. Now... lets see how this all works in practice.

Over 1 year of playing, CE owner and subscriber since day 1, lvl 50 legacy but new hairstyles and eyecolors are being charged to me?

New Appearance Options are now available in the Cartel Market. Cost:
Human Hairstyles 1 – 240 Cartel Coins
Human Hair Colors 1 – 180 Cartel Coins
Mirialan Tattoos 1 – 90 Cartel Coins
Chiss Customizations 1 – 240 Cartel Coins
Human White Eyes – 100 Cartel Coins


What kind of a solution is it to charge for new colors and hairstyles when this is somethign so fundamental about customization and should be made available for everyone when creating a character and later when you'd like to make "light" changes like different styles and colors via the customization kiosk? I don't even want to get into of how this should have been in the game months ago but no.... there is so much I'm willing to take but this is too much. You already stretched it pretty far with moods being locked for subscriber until unlocking via your packages... however I rarely use them.

- make it free (just implement it in the character creation screen)
- make it cost credits

I mean, it's not like we have such a waste of choices anyway.... charging cartel coins for long awaited customize additions is just wrong.

I know, right? It's so stupid of Bioware to charge you for anything ever again since you've played their game five hours a day. Why should you even have to buy the expansion, or have a limited supply of credits, or have to earn gear? You've bought the CE, subscribed since day 1, achieved legacy level 50, why shouldn't they just give you everything you want? Go whine somewhere else.

New Discounts:
Permanent Reductions
5–Pack: Major Experience Boost consumables are now permanently discounted. Cost: 360 Cartel Coins

Temporary Reductions: 5–Pack: Major Experience Boost consumables are now discounted by 20%. Cost: 288 Cartel Coins
So which is it Bioware?

Both of them of course. The 20% discount (360CC - 20% = 288CC) is time-limited, the permanent price is not.

It's both! They're going to be 360 CC from now on, but this patch is also discounting that price by 20% temporarily. Sorry for any confusion!
