so these were a great idea for ops leaders BUT.....
#1 they are only in packs
#2 they are not reusable
#3 they are bound

***???!!!

I would love to be able to use these teaching new members but I'm not buying a whole bunch of packs for them and I can't even get them off the gtn.

Wow used to have a sub market for engineering colored smoke flares for raiding and eventually made their way into the raid UI as a feature. Who knows if SWTOR will do this though.

They need to be reuseable or it is pretty pointless. This is like the jawagrams all over again.

For those not sure what these tactical markers are: http://youtu.be/XMPQT-VvNng

Yeah, they are kind of pointless. What is their range as well? If they stay like that, then it will be better to use your Imperial, Republic and challenge banners. Hope that they upgrade them soon. It will most assuredly help people out in operations.

Would anyone be mad if they were cheapo and easy to build as a profession? like 2 or 3 pieces of either bioanalysis, each tier is a different color?

This is against what the devs told us would be in the packs.

Cosmetic, they said.

Well, these tactical markers have a legitimate non-cosmetic use.

I are disappoint.

Why would something like this even be put into the gambling packs? Items with a legitimate gameplay function don't belong in those things.

The deplete on use? Damn... that is worthless.

This is similar to when they added the datacrons to the packs which gave a bit of extra story content when used. Granted, they don't offer any kind of story content, and I can see an argument of just placing them on the ground for "fun" while killing time waiting for an OP to start or while queued for PvP or a FP.

However, it seems once again BW introduces something without any real understanding of their playerbase and how such an item would. This would be a great tool but instead of adding it to the UI or making it reusable and crafted they are filling up space in the packs.

These cannot be traded but are only useful in ops? OHHHHH GReeeeeaat.......

Let's see.... They give me this thing....and I'm supposed to figure out how to make use of it.....so I'll want more....so I'll buy more packs just to get another one?

Why wouldn't I just keep on...you know... not using this thing?

Bet it's not even limited to being used only by Ops Leaders. So there's going to be these things going off randomly in ops....great fun.
