I guess the coins are alright but it would have been nice to see them put a little more effort into it and make something unique for sub. To me it feels weak and unimpressive. The title is nice for the KotOR Anniversary but again we have to buy it and this is why people feel like the focus is always on CM. I still think it would be nice if you would added a loyalty program (many game have them) to show you appreciated for our continue support of the game. Still itís a gift and for that I thank you.

Doubtful we'll ever see anything even close to that, because you don't really care about the subscribers. It's clear this is just a cash shop game now, and that makes me sad. Consider my subscription over once my 6 months are up. I just switch preferred and buy me weekly unlocks on the gtn. I'm not going to keep paying you $15/month for $5 worth of coins. Subscribers are getting ripped off...end of story.
Fully agree

Is this a joke? If I wanted more cartel coins I'd cancel my sub and get 1500 per month instead. That seems to be what you want since every other advantage of subbing is on the GTN for chump change now.

I would have preferred a Pet or some cosmetic item or other "eye candy" instead of the 500 CC.
Not that they are bad, but it is like buying someone a gift card, because you do not know them well enough to buy a "real" present.

Maybe you should consider setting up a "Subscriber Vendor" with some special items. We have the Token Vendor and the CE Vendor already. Well, the Subscriber Vendor should be updated with items from time to time, though. Not like the other two ^^
(Although I liked the Black/Yellow dye )

Or a cool vehicle, looking like the Taxis, which you only can use if you have an active sub status
Oh, and they should come with a dye slot, or buyable (either creds or CC) paintjobs

I really think people are looking at this the wrong way. They're not saying "Here's what you get for being a sub, now shut up and let us make Cartel Packs.". I believe they're saying "Here are some CCs to show you we haven't forgotten about you. There's more content on the way". It's pretty much just something to show us that we haven't been forgotten.

Would I have preferred some new content? Of course, but any quality content requires a decent amount of time to be made. I think we're in for a decent amount of quality content this summer.

I think this is a great idea as it would work like a loyalty program. The problem with the CC it doesnít feel like they put any effort into it. In truth considering were paying 15 dollar already were just getting five dollar back on this monthís price, itís not all that great a gift. Sure isn't going to make people want to continue to sub anymore then last month. I think a loyalty program or a vendor would make people feel more appreciated for their continue support.

Agreed, it should be in place the moment F2P was introduced.
I don't have friends but I really want those pets -> referral link (you get free stuff too!)

This way, I get what I want rather than what BWEA wants to give me.

Options are good.

I'm kind of confused about the logic here. Subscribers have felt under-appreciated due to everything available either to everyone or through the cartel market, so to show appreciation subscribers are given 500 coins to spend in the cartel market? I've been a subscriber since pre-launch, but this makes me curious to see how much it would cost me on a monthly basis to drop down to preferred and play the same amount. Especially now that I'm getting close to 8 level 55s, but I only really play one consistently.
