Just like I said it on the other thread.... terrible :/ I really want to keep playing this game, but all the good looking gear goes to Cartel and all the stuff we earn in game is ugly and lazy. I can't see myself wanting to earn anything.

don't worry I'm sure the op will create 5 more threads about this and there are already three others you can complain in so you can say the same thing again and again and again and again and again and again

I hate the new basic comm sets. I have no idea what the BH set is...Am I a burn victim? or did i lose a fight to a raccoon?...really miss the tion/ rakata/ dread gear...but whatever. I will wait and hope that they will someday bring back the shells.
But I think the one thing i would like to see is the ability to dye Lore items (Revan's, Mandalore for example) I know it wouldnt make sense lore-wise to dye them...but come on...lore has been taking a left turn lately. why not? idk. just my opinion.
Death to all whom oppose us!

Most of that stuff you can get on the gtn anyways. The in game stuff is generally more for the stats really. Like it or hate it, but the CM is probably an important part of why this game didn't crash and die last year. As long as they keep it to cosmetics, I'm ok.
Ultimately I am a much more reasonable person when people reply to what I actually wrote instead of what they decided I meant with it

I loved my Trooper and Marauder Gear back then. I still wear some of it because its some of the best looking gear in the game. The first sets of gear fit star wars, some were uglier than others but once you mod a few pieces around it was fine. These new sets however are a joke.

What is this supposed to be? Ironman?

Greetings, Ayelinna

Thank you for sharing your valuable thoughts about the new armor models. All player feedback is always incredibly valuable to us. While we fully understand your lacking satisfaction in this regard, please bear in mind armor you can acquire by playing the game you are paying for should essentially be treated as " place holder." This is gear you are supposed to wear while browsing Cartel Market© for your actual wardrobe.

I am very happy in being able to inform you that we at Electronic Arts are going to be able to deliver vast amount of brand new very good looking armor that deeply enriches playersí gameplay and essentially fuels their appetite to play more. Much of this armor is readily available to you already in SWTOR's exclusive Cartel Market store. If you think we will ever again just GIVE decent looking armor away when so many of you are actually perfectly wiling to,in adition to subscription fees, actually pay money for it, you are mistaken. We at Electronic Arts have come to realize subscriber having to pay 10 dollah for their armor is essential part in enjoyment of gear.

Kindlly bend over more fully so I can Monetize you better.

your pal,
EA©

that's great I love my hydra gear and have worn it since launch...

the point is the spamming of these "the [insert gametype here] gear is so ugly" threads are annoying and just opinion. every time new sets are released there are people who hate it and feel bioware's hand slapping their face then there are people indifferent and there are those who like it, we don't need multiple threads all saying the same crap every time they release armor, constructive criticism is fine if its not being spammed but like my first post in this thread points out I do not imagine this behavior.

news at 10 a portion of the swtor fan base thinks the newest gear is ugly... shocking

then people go on about how all the good gear is in the cartel market ignoring the fact that most of the cartel market gear is re-skins and ugly crap except a handful of pieces not even full sets out of 100s and mostly lore sets that the current devs are modeling off something they did not create and still seem to make them look worse then the originals from 10 years ago. plus do you really want a shirtless trench coat or invisible gloves as your tier set?

and also the self righteous I'm so much better then the devs approach of either "the gear used to be so awesome and NOW biowares just trying to screw us" or the "OMG this looks nothing like Obi-Wan's robes in a new hope do the devs know anything about star wars" arguments to complain instead of having honest conversations about the actual designs annoys me

Sure sure, but these people paying money can complain all they want about the product, just stop reading about it if you don't like it. Besides look at this, http://dulfy.net/wp-content/uploads/...pack_thumb.jpg. They put time into this, I would have loved to earn this gear in game from doing something, but no. So this is a small example of why people complain so much and they have every right too.

Also! Whatever happened to this stuff? http://www.google.ca/imgres?um=1&cli...1&tx=147&ty=81 It looked fantastic.

again your one example from the pack is unique and not the standard of the quality of the cartel market. Im pretty sure they put time and effort into most of the gear in the game and at least one person on the team thinks its cool cartel or otherwise, it could possibly have worked for a rep vendor but tiered gear is not adaptable. but the cybernetic gear was going to be cartel market, its where it fits best. the cartel market is actually where they can go a little over board with designs like miniskirts and droid pieces because its not rewards for doing content, its just fluff. same with shirtless sets and invisible pieces and lore sets just like the rep vendors gear resembles npcs or that rep faction. all the rotworm / frogdog / imperial / republic team gear though I agree should be from some sorta pvp rep vendor and not the cartel packs.

either way 1 thread a week is plenty for discussing bad gear models there is no need to create multiple threads just to come in and say for the hundredth time, "ea just does it to screw us because their evil and kick puppies"

and I don't buy the whole "we pay money we have a right to act like brats on the internet"
