It would help clear things up and definitely deter people from creating the same tin-foil threads over and over again.

The way that page is set up now, details are not as visible as they could (should?) be and we end up with the same questions again and again that always seem to attract the same people claiming that X or Y feature is not or will not be included in our subscription. And as a result, useful threads with new information, updates and legitimate feedback are lost.

Just my two cents.
Well... we've kinda seen that what is listed on the features page isn't set in stone.

"Full Access to Character Creation Choices" got an addition of "(Excluding species options availalbe for purchase in the Cartel Market)"

With that precedent in mind, "Unlimited access to Flashpoints and Rewards" could have gotten an additional "(Excluding flashpoints available for purchase in the Cartel Market)"


Ever since the Cathar and new customization options, the worry is that the listed features won't apply to newly released aspects of that feature. We have seen additional costs tacked on where the features page said there wouldn't be an additional cost. The solution was to change the features page. It has been done once, it could just as easily be done again.

We can no longer just accept that the listed features will apply to future releases. So we ask.

Hey man, there's a lot of people here who just shut up and take it and choose not to use the simplest form of human right we have. Which is to speak, usually in question form.

Edit: The original post in case someone hadn't seen it.
Much like one thread regarding feedback about why someone was quitting earlier today? There was a lot of comments from people who agreed with the OP and suddenly *BOOM* the thread was cut to three pages when it previously was like 10+. Accidents do happen!

Just remember, it's technically free if you're charged Cartel Coins to access them, when they give you free Cartel Coins to use for it.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry

So you'd be fine if they charged 300-600 cartel coins for each FP?

I have to agree were would that be free , they might as well just take the coins back and up the SUB if they have to .. but using what are being given each month to pay for more content in my book is not free and just up the SUB if you need to or take the coins away imo . .


IF they are HURTING that bad the reports they made at the end and start of the year were lies . I on that sounds hush but I tell it to many time how I see it and yea it gets me in a lot of trouble . you know IDC if it does . .

It doesn't matter because they're not gonna charge. Amazing that some of you just can't drop it.
