I think a lot of these people have serious problems with defining relationships.

Which would explain why we're all playing video games rather than forge actually human connections.

Psh, eff it. Jaesa is my waifu.

What she really wanted was a SWTOR 2400cc gift card.

Maybe you missed the post where a developer for this very game made the exact comparison you're now complaining about. Or is that post now completely irrelevant to the Defense Force?

I like how the OP says I was expecting a mount, pet or title (something non-subscribers can't get) but everyone can get a mount pet or title. Expecting something exclusive like that would just bring more people crying because they either:

A. Find it ugly and want something else
B. Didn't want said item in the first place
C. Wanted CC instead to buy something they really wanted.

Money was the best choice in this matter.

The people complaining about the 500 CC are probably the same people who complain all the "cool stuff" goes into the CM. If BW is supposedly putting all the good stuff into the CM, then CC is the perfect gift.

The "surprise" is a cheap *** attempt to get you to spend more coins in the market for a title which should have an in-game way of obtaining and NOT for real cash. This is *********** ridiculous.

You know what would be a great start? fixing all this game's breaking bugs I mean a lot of us bought this game at the beginning, and it wasn't cheap by any standards yet this is the product that's been given to us. Half baked ideas with numerous bugs to boot. A warzone system which can't even manage to fill its spots correctly.

They don't seem to think these are high priority fixes. Never mind half the game populations entire warzone experiences ending prematurely due to this.

He's talking about his actual relationship with his actual; wife, not his relationship with his employer or with a company which provides him with a service.

So your little quasi-analogy is entirely inapt.
