Really hope this will be a recurring item that pops up randomly for one day at a time.

[Edit: The above was a bit of a knee jerk response before all the information was out, not something I'd normally do
Now I just have to make sure I can get to my pc on the 15th of July, and even if I miss that deadline at least the title will be tradeable so I could get a guildie to pick one up for me or catch one on the GTN.]

This! I'll be heading out for vacation towards the end of the month, and I can potentially lose out on something because of poor timing. I know I'm not the only one looking at taking for vacation time. Its not like a event that goes over at least a couple of days. I think this is bad planning.

It would be nice if they announce beforehand when this "one day" will occur, so we can make our plans to have access to a computer with the game client on that "one day".

Eric, please?
I plan on going to San Diego for four days to attend your Cantina Tour.
I don't want to miss this "one day" because I went.

No. And way to get defensive. You said "Packs are 160 each" as in packs, not pack. It's perfectly understandable he/she'd read/interpret it that way.

I'm not saying I don't necessarily appreciate the tree-fitty in store credit, but I think the concept of "subscriber appreciation" is still sort of not be fulfilled here. Saying "here's a coupla bucks, go buy something nice" isn't really the same as "we like the fact that you pay for our product every month". I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's what most players mean when they say subscriber appreciation...they want more value out of that month-to-month fee.

For me, the 500 CC is like finding $20 tucked inside a birthday card -- it doesn't change my world, but it is appreciated.

Thanks!

My character was stuck in a piece of equipment, and I logged off, and back on, trying to extricate myself. Just as I logged back on, the "Cartel Coins Have Been Added to Your Account!" banner appeared. I thought, "What? Trying to get loose from this stupid piece of equipment triggered a CC purchase? Dang ..."

Timing is everything.

Just cancelled my subscription over this "appreciation gift", I feel like it's a huge slap on the subscribers face. I would've been more than happy with a title or a pet or something similar, but 500 CC is just too cheap and lazy and lacks "appreciation".

"I know, throw them some free coins"

*facepalm*

Nice to see they've put some time and effort into appreciating their loyal subscriber base.
loool pretty accurate that

That's good. It might make Bioware to work hard more. The only time Bioware will wake up to their senses if they lose another 250K subscribers or worse have a base of only 100K every month. Sometimes Bioware needs a wake up call if they want to make that 500K subscribers intact for the years to come.
