Life Day was a Wookiee holiday celebrated by the inhabitants of Kashyyyk every THREE years.
So the devs aren't any more lazy than the Wookiees.

The less time the devs spend on creating corny novelty items the better this game will be.

Well, there's a big difference between being listed on the GTN for a price and selling for that price. I see ridiculous prices listed all the time. I had some of that Life Day stuff and sold it and I had to re-list it over and over to get a decent sale price on it as it wasn't really in demand all that much. I've seen people listing that butt ugly snowblower mount for millions on the GTN. Doesn't mean people were actually paying millions for it. I'd rather stick a fork in my eye than have that ugly mount, even for free. I don't remember BW ever saying that the Life Day stuff would be permanently retired....just like the packs aren't permanently retired. I expected this stuff would be returning for the holidays....just like the Gold Scalene armor returns periodically....just like cartel packs return periodically. So that's why I sold extra Life Day stuff before they announced any return of that stuff to the CM.

Frankly, no one really cares whether you played the game in Dec. of 2012 and were in the game since that time and purchased any Life Day stuff back then. If you dress up in your Life Day Robes and circle the Fleet on that snowblower thinking that people are jealous or envious of you then I weep for you, lol. By the way, you basically disproved your own argument because the stuff can be bought and sold on the GTN. So someone could have started playing the game 2 weeks ago and bought this stuff on the GTN even though they weren't around last December. Bound gear/rewards earned through an event are different than gear/loot which can be traded and sold. People don't have to do anything to "earn" that stuff. It's just bought.

Sounds like the real-world considerations of whether other players can buy gear or obtain gear from the game jumps the world of roleplaying. I don't RP, but seems like that would break the rules. If somehow Life Day ties into your roleplay....which I highly doubt....then it should only ruin your fun 1 day out of every 3 years since Life Day was only celebrated once every 3 years during this timeframe in the SW universe. Well, unless your RP is that your character celebrates Life Day year round....sort of like people who leave their Xmas lights up all year. Maybe your RP is your character being an obnoxious show-off who trolls the Fleet trying to brag about his/her "unique" gear. Regardless, if your "fun" revolves around showing off your equipment and you seriously think that anyone else cares about your Life Day gear, then you have quite a wild imagination and I'm sure you can creatively find a way to work all this into your RP, lol.

It's a bit irritating that, by now, you're the odd one out in quest ot social gear
I like how the whining about "censored" butts started instantly but it took 2 days for someone to notice the legs are also ****ed up rantboi

I am rarely opposed to decisions you make but this time I agree with the guys that was an irresponsible act. I understand your reasons for adding them back but there are much bigger reason not to.
You have to realize there is an economy in game on which many depends and study carefully and base their decisions on. I for one, bought many items with CC I didn't need as an investment, I also kept those super rare items for the longest time, even thru financial problems with credits, just to keep their value growing, when I could've made an easy 20mil, it Is now worth next to nothing, and people in the future will bank on the fact that items will be back.
Crafting is already dead, now this.
When u do what u did, people lose faith in the system and the economy, no point in spending cc on unique items if they won't be unique, you devaluated my nest egg drastically. Think about all the repercussions, I will spare you the 3 pages of impact something like this has.
I am really disappointed and quite angered by your lack of tact.

We chose to bring back the Life Day items this year for a few reasons. Last year when we had the Life Day items, the Cartel Market was fairly new and so at the time, not a lot of people may have realized that these types of items can be limited. Also, we had not yet launched the Collections UI, which is especially helpful for items such as limited event items.

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!

Wonder if it will get deleted...again?

the "my God have mercy on your soul" was a bit much and probably borderline threatening...

There are things worthy of complaining about..there are things not worthy of complaining about..there are things complained about simply to complain about something. Funny, some stations ALWAYS play the same TV show 24hours a day during this season (we all know what show and probably which station(s))....Problem is, we simply just turn it off.

People complain about free items, people complain there isn't anything done for <insert holiday/event etc.>. IF something is done, they complain about what was given...

I really feel sorry for gift givers in this society...Where Christmas ALWAYS comes with a list. Whatever happened to being thankful for what you get, what you have, and appreciate what others do for you?

This whole thing was a either a brute force troll, which worked because he got THE moderator to comment on it, or it's one of the worst cases of entitlement I've ever seen. Anyone who doesn't expect holiday items to show up every year is dumber than a box of rocks.
