the thing Producer Cory Butler missed to mention was "You are not able to customize your character in any way that you personally want, you can possibly get only dyes that makes you go blind when using. Of course you can buy 2 useless random dyes per 200 cartel coins and hope to find "rare" finds in them like black/ black. Imagine how rare black/black must be in the empire. But apparently he has reasons to be proud about this... true sith runs around in brown/green or green/blue or white/yellow in his vision ...those are craftable and - if you ask me something for people with a hidden clown-trauma back from their childhood. SHAME on you guys! This is the worst possible scam i have seen a while in an online-game where customization is a matter of a lot of money and luck.
On a sidenote, i cancelled my subscription and can only hope a lot of other people will do that as well in order to make you guys at least rethink if this was such a good plan to rip people off in the end.....

I think its stupid that in order to use the "barber shop" kiosk you have to spend Cartel Points. Who's bright idea was that!? We should be able to spend Credits to change our character's face , hair , etc...not Cartel Points. Just another way for them to force some players to spend more of their real hard earned money on buying more Cartel points. Also I think its unfair that the Dye packs are random ((Luckily for me I just happened to luck out and get the color I was wanting.). We should be able to pick which color dyes we want to buy.

Try "ALOT " of players or most who are running Windows XP. lol
Can't believe you guys didnt test the launcher for older systems that are posted as compatible for this MMO.

I tried calling your technical support line, but it said "45 minute wait." lolz

Good thing I have Windows 7. But I have been experncing a TON of Lag since the new patch went live.

Actually I saw a few players online yesterday that had blue robes...so I do believe that there are blue dyes.

lol what are you talking about? My main character used a green dye pack to turn his Jedi Robe Green..and I'm not talking about Green and another color..no it turned his robe SOLID green. And I've seen players with solid blue robes as well. Though I have yet to come across anyone with a white dye pack.

Not cool pissin off clients who are already irritated with how things have been done.
Bioware stated countless times in the past that the Cathar would only be available through the Cartel Market.

There is nothing else to get excited about in this update, to my eyes and I'm a little dubious about reduced instance populations too . I hope its for the right reasons and not to mask possible population decreases on servers. I love this game and will continue to support it but to say I'm a little tee'd off is putting it mildly.

Looking forward to being corrected if I am wrong about character re-name.
I know how you feel. Since the day I created my main character I have not been happy with the face I chose for him. Flash forward..I'm so excited that BW is finally going to be putting a "Barber Shop" feature into the game..at long last I can finally fix my main character's face. The day comes..I download and install the patch and log on...I instantly go to the kiosk..all excited. Only to learn that in order to actually use it you have to spend Cartel Coins..***!? I'm so mad I should be able to use in game Credits for such a feature like in other MMOs..but no..you have to use Cartel Coins. Man I was so pissed.

You know, i'm happy that this game is getting new content love on a reasonably frequent basis. However, along with the vast majority of other subscribers, I refuse to pay for something that subscribing should net me in the first place.

It is understandable to ask subscribers to fork out additional $$$ for promotional or specialty items on the Cartel market, but for basic things like race restrictions and character customization on the measly stipend that they supply subs? That is just absurd.

I reiterate, I like the content, hate the way it has been implemented.
