Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

However, with that being said... It is our intention that after this run we will embargo the Life Day items and that they will not be returning again. Like all things, that is subject to change but currently our plan is that after this year these Life Day items will go into retirement!

This is one of those posts i normally leave alone but after seeing what Eric posted and what the OP said .

I don't see why he complaing , I checked the GTN prices to see how cheap , i was gonna hold off buying or spending what coins i have and buy it off the GTN . sorry to say on my server at least the stuff is still selling for Millions has been for weeks or month , i have yet to see a price drop below a Million at any time ,

and why i have been holding off , buying it off the Cartel Market. I was hoping for some sweet deals ..

and I have the Credits also .

To BW /EA , i used up all my coins i had no real use for and am waiting for the CD to drop off ,on the account that had a lot of coins ..

Ty for being it back , i was really worried we would not see again , i would not finish off the achievements

Yea, right. 1: people knew they were limited, but the items had little appeal. 2: Items being gone, is NEVER forever with you guys, everything comes back in one way or another, even gear for the Collectors edition that was supposed to be for CE ONLY became available in a different color to general players, and with dyes can be made exactly like the CE ARMOR. Further proof is the white color crystal, and the gear that was available only in discontinued packs. several examples available.

Nothing is gone forever, and saying that should be false advertisement when you know damn well it is not true.

So not everyone realized these were limited-time exclusive items, therefore the original poster, who DID realize the exclusivity of the item and payed millions for it, is out of luck. The solution is to offer a similar, but not exact item. A renamed "Life Day 2" lawnmower mount with christmas lights instead of "LD1".

It's good for players that missed life-day and don't want to pay millions, but bad for players who payed millions based on the rarity of the items.

IMO, any FP, OP, WZ, Arena, Daily, Event, etc. gets stale if you focus your play on it too much. That's why we have so many things to do... so we can switch it up and do something different for a bit.

Personally, I like the arenas, btw. Those are what brought me to PvP and I still get excited when I see one pop for me, even though it's kind of rare.

Anyway, long story short, you don't speak for the PvP community. Different people have different tastes and opinions. Try to focus on the things you like and make constructive suggestions for additional features that you would like to see.
That is the best post I have read in quite some time.

I can't shake the feeling as if an "Lex Rileysoph" was created.
I'm a bad player.
I have no good reputation.
I never will.
Only bad reputation.
