Players did request the option to change appearance, name and so on, which you did provide. I am slightly unsure on the method of payment for this. Despite players are paying for the game, you still wish us to spend more on Cartel Points? That is one change I would love to not have. I could easily pay 10.000 credits per customization-option, or even more! Credits aren't difficult to come over, so you could make it 50.000 credits per option as well, that is hardly anything I would shrug my shoulders about.

I know that it is difficult to earn money on game-development now, specially on a mmorpg since they seem to be a new one on the market by the second, but everything you make shouldn't be picked out of our wallet. Give us something that cost credits as well!

On a second note:
Now when you are done giving us the option to change our appearance; will you now start working on better and more social-features for lone players and guilds?
Players can gather on ships, but you can't even sit on the chairs, which ruins the authentic feeling for us roleplayers.

Summary:
+ Change appearance
- Everything cost cartel-points
Wishing for:
More features for roleplayers

It only applys to the Server/Legacy so when you change servers they have different legacys and there for do not cross the only way you can get a legacy to apply to another server is if you transfer atleast one of your characters to the other server. In which case your legacy with all its unlocks come with it.
] Looking for more to do at Endgame than just run OPS, or PVP for better gear, its getting a bit stale!

Why do you guys always break things for a majority of your player base? Not once has there been a smooth content patch. It must be a but embarrassing for you.

EA, BioWare - You are simply not listening to your customers and you are treating us, and this is the first time EVER I feel this by a game, disrespectfully. I sincerely hope this game somehow turns around and bites you in the *** and puts the entire company in bankruptcy, because this is greed in it's purest form. No love, no roleplay or dedication, this is lazyness and greed combined.

Unsubbed and uninstalled the game.

The rest of you should do the same, otherwise they will never learn(probably won't anyway, probably won't need to, because of drones like you who are sheep to be manipulated. Just like in politics).
I agree completly tbh...unfortunatly i have found no other game that interests me, but i have a few im waiting on to be released - once they are (And they will be soon), im outa here for sure - unless they have made significant changes in their attitude against their paying subscribers.

BioWare's probably throwing their arms in the air right now. People ask for customization, they give it and suddenly everyone's criticizing them for having the "nerve" to charge for it. How dare a company try to make money off of a product they spent millions on! (sarcasm).
The main problem on these forums is that people feel entitled. As long as that keeps up, no one will ever be happy with anything that is done to the game, even if they asked for the features themselves.

Oh is that right...

You know, for example name change, guild and legacy name changes were supposed to be free for subscribers on a monthly basis. And you come here pointing fingers at us for being annoyed about suddenly having to pay for it?

You are aware that we ARE allready paying for this game and it's content, right? We bought the discs and we pay a monthly fee. I understand that F2P players have to pay for stuff like this, since they do NOT pay a monthly sub - but give me 1 single good reason why someone with a proper subscription should ever have to pay a single cent extra for anything?

-We are allready supporting this game with the originally calculated ammount of dollars they wanted.

Nothing in your ramblings make any sense what so ever, everyone who reads this post is now dumber for having read it. I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul!!!!

I pay 15 bucks a month, so what does BioWare do... charge me MORE MONEY FOR CRAP THAT SHOULD BE FREE OR COST GAME CREDITS!!! Pay to play for the lose. Seriously... you are charging me CC to change my hair color!!! YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING!!! A new race... *chaching* more CC ... Subs should get something for crying out loud, other than a "discount" i mean really... why sub at this point.. you dont get anything for it.

Totally signed.

I was shocked today, after seeing that I need to pay further 5 € for a new species and up to 10 € for some customizations. I already paid my damn subs. At the moment I think that they don΄t deserve any further payment. I still have the preferred F2P status which is enough to play the story of some chars. But further payments, no way!
