while you may take issue with OP's phrasing, at least some of the sentiment behind it is sound. at least if they are going to introduce more revealing armor, could we get some variety? maybe? because now that we have dyes, even what little difference there was, is now completely inconsequential.

its sadly true that most people are not really buying those outfits anymore.

now I haven't seen the outfit previews yet (dulfy doesn't seem to have it), but if its just another slightly recolored version of dancer's outfit? I can see why OP is frustrated.

What if I want skimpy outfits for MALE characters?!

SB has pretty combat. . . but I have no interest in playing half-naked women.

More skimpy gear pls. I enjoy seeing scantily clad ladies running around fleet. For equality's sake, male toons should not be left out.

It might be a supply problem too. The dancer armor stuff seemed to drop a LOT in the first shipment of Cartel packs. People buying packs didn't need to buy any of it off the GTN because we were all getting a ton of it in our own packs. There was a very high drop rate of banners and the ball toss too which led to a flood of those items on the GTN. So part of it is probably demand....but part of it is also probably a supply-side issue because the drop rates for that stuff was WAY too high.

Also, you might be able to get a dancer top for 5,000 to 10,000 credits regularly on the GTN but you're not getting the relaxed jumpsuit top for that cheap unless someone isn't paying attention to their list price. That generally costs at least 100,000 and when that stuff was first coming about in packs, I sold several relaxed jumpsuit chestpieces for 300,000.

Not really, the reason isn't necessarily a lack of demand as it is an overabundance of supply. They are made available RANDOMLY when the Cartel Packs are purchased. Some people buy multiple packs and get more than they can use. So they sell them on the market. Everyone in the game could technically already want and get one (demand), and there would still be more on the market.

There is hardly an "overabundance" of MALE skimpy gear.

so far we have three (thats right, 3) chestpieces that are skimpy for males.
Covert chest piece (which really isnt a "skimpy outfit" since its just being naked") and the two releaxed jacket variations.
I would hardly call that "variation", not to mention overabundance...


Ok, so the OP doesnt want more skimpy male outfits. I get it.
Then just dont buy any.

Its that simple.
Apparantly I have multiple accounts. And apparantly I argue with myself on those accounts.
