I know, since they gave zero coins to anybody who bought it early, and 1050 coins to anybody who bought it just before it was made free to subscribers, maybe they should have given you 2010 coins for never having purchased it at all as compensation for not having access to the new material for the past five months.

I'm curious as to when we will get our cartel coins BIOWARE? Yes those of us whom purchased the game expansion earlier then a month ago got a little title that really isn't worth it. you may say we got to play the expansion early for say $2.00 a month then but when the subscription price go up? We still had to pay for our subscription. I'm trying not to be rude and such but I'm having a hard time understanding this? We can't even sell our title on the GTN due to it being bound to our characters already once we pick it up. Maybe you can clarify this for me on how it is those people that purchased the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion within the last month were to receive 1050 cartel coins but those players whom purchased the expansion back when you had it as a pre-order before the expansion was released get a title only. Please Explain why to me on why you thought this was a good idea? why are you rewarding those players with whom purchased this within the last month with a much more valuable commodity then those whom has purchased it when it was on pre-order?

You got to play the expansion early, much earlier. You also received:

The Dr. Oggurobb Hutt Holostatue: Train under the illustrious Hutt scientist Dr. Oggurobb with this portable training device that he created in his own image.

"Scourge of the Hutts" Title: Republic and Imperial forces that adorn this title will be revered across the galaxy.

The Makrin Seedling Mini-Pet: Get your very own Makrin Seedling to follow you around and creep out your enemies! Possessing bark-like skin and grass-like nerve-rich tissues that blend in perfectly with Makeb’s environment, the Makrin Seedling has a distinguishing and eerie look!
The following statement is true. The previous statement is false.

Because the players who purchased during that period are, in many regions in which SWTOR operates, due a full cash refund of the difference between the price they paid and the new purchase price. In this case, that's a full cash refund. EA would rather give them 1,050 cartel coins than return their $10.

You do not get the same consideration because, having purchased outside of the refund window, you have no right to a refund.

Ever since the cartel store subs have had less value to EA. Sad to say I am not surprised by what they did I am just done with it. I really hope things change for the better for this game someday. I will now go f2p just like everyone else before me. I just feeling rather stupid I did not switch at day 1 now.

what about us who already bought it. I think we should get Cartel Coins for spending 10 dollars on buying it and now having it free.

Did anyone else not get their "Risen" title? After hearing other guild members mention getting theirs, I realized that I did not get it. Then I started thinking, "Hey maybe they gave me the Cartel Coins instead!" Nope, just nothing.

I also saw the "Risen" title already on my server. I purchased RotHC the first day it was available for pre-order and have been a sub since early start without a break. Well, the news says the title arrives before the 25th. So, I will be patient until tomorrow. But if there is no title in my mailbox until then, CS better have a very good explanation.

Otherwise.
Otherwise what?
Exactly!

Lol. Same here, no title yet. While I am not a title wearing sort, I would not mind getting what I qualify for in case I change my mind lol. Well it did say by, or on, the 25th. Perhaps I will see it before midnight and it turns to the 26th. Was not going to say anything, but was curious and saw this page. But aye...same here. Pre-ordered RoTHC and have been a continuous sub since as early as the game would allow.

Not the end of the world, just curious.

Well, as if being a pre-orderer of the expansion, and not getting a CC grant is bad enough, I haven't even gotten my monthly alottment for this month either. I added a new game card 3 weeks ago, and still haven't recieved any Cartel Coins at all for the new month. And the new month started when I entered it. I had a 3day gap of no subscription in between.

Still mad about this whole situation. As has been said, those of us that DO subscribe, are getting kicked to the curb.
