What is everyone complaining about exactly? 500 free coins? Lol? Fair enough as far as I'm concerned, I was expecting some sort of temporary buff or something. I'll gladly take some coins. Very interested to find out what that item for 10 CC will be.

All similar rewards were vanity items/fluff - a tauntaun, a jawa, a mount, a title etc.
What were you expecting? A new warzone just for subscribers? A new planet?

Of course it was going to be fluff and since you already said you don't care about fluff, no matter what that item was it would've been insignificant to you.

Just because you don't consider it a useful gift it doesn't mean that it's not a useful gift for a large number of players.
If it would have been a unique vehicle, pet or article of clothing that couldn't be purchased for CC's it would have meant a lot more than those 500 CC.

Why? Because 500 CC doesn't take any effort at all. Yeah, it's still fluff, but at least there would have been effort behind it. And who knows, it might have actually been something that I'd have a use for.

Heck, a 3 hour buff that doubles my looted credits or Crew Skill rewards would have been better.

I've never said it's not a useful gift. I'll use it. What I've said is that it just doesn't make sense to appreciate subscribers by giving them coins for the CM. Some of us feel the CM is a detriment to the game as a whole and an out and out money grab by EA/BW in a last ditch effort to salvage their hundred million dollar investment. Trying to encourage us to buy more CC isn't appreciated.

Who knows, if the 10 CC, one day reward is subscriber only and something interesting...well, then and only then will I appreciate the other 490 CC that will be left over. Otherwise, I and a few others believe this isn't really a subscriber appreciation.

So you would've been more pleased with a Tauntaun in new colors than the 500cc we got then? A color only available for subs.

The simple solution for a good company would have been A PORTABLE GTN, instead we got coins im not saying its not something but i am kinda dissapointed was hoping for something unique and new.

This particular award is. Only subscribers get it.
A title or something cosmetic or something not on the CM has more meaning, because a title actually MEANS something.

Cartel coins is currency, and you can buy them with real money. It is used to buy stuff off the cartel market. So no, its not more valuable, but i guess thats just my opinion.

I would probably be pleased with that because the tauntaun with exclusive colors for subscribers is well...exclusive for subs...which means free players cant obtain it.

Well, I think we both know that neither of these examples would've satisfied you, me or even if they did, they wouldn't satisfy another part of the community.

A unique vehicle would be unique until you logged in and everyone had the same vehicle/pet/armor set you did.
A buff for 3 (or 5 or 10...) hours would really mean absolutely nothing. It would be a one-time thing that you wouldn't be able to keep unlike something you can buy from the cartel market or an unlock in your Legacy.

Special gifts that are specific items that offer players no option to pick and choose what they want, VERY rarely satisfy everyone (and in this community's case, that rarely tends to be "almost never"). And since there are people who don't appreciate fluff (like yourself) a "fluffy" gift really means nothing or at the very least, it amounts to much less than the option to use a currency that you have to pay real money to get, any way you want to.

Indeed it is just your opinion. I can use the CCs to buy what I actually want rather than being given something I (potentially) don't care about. Seemingly all you care about is being unique.

Well having around 7000cc banked right now I guess that will continue to grow. I have no need for CC's. Don't spend them and really don't want them.

Well I did buy one of the Sith outfits because it was on sale for around 200cc. So I shouldn't say i never spend them, more like rarely

While I will say thanks and take what I can get. I would have preferred something different.
