I love the game been playing since beta but im still miffed that purchased mounts are character specific. Why not reward at least subscribers with this perk
There is no such thing as becoming happy. You only become comfortable with your core misery, which is in itself a form of happiness.

It's not like they make us aware of the cartel market and anything related to it on a regular basis.

I think he means all Mounts, including quest rewards, unobtainable mounts, all that, not just Cartel Pack mounts.

You can't claim a Korrellias Baron from your Collections after all, even if you're riding around on one.

Ah. That makes more sense. He doesn't say purchased "on the CM" either.

They should add more unobtainable stuff to the collections system period.

^^This. Collections should not only be for CM items. For example, I spent months back in the days, farming my RD07a-Spider set. And the Viper set. You know, back in the days when there were not many orange sets available and they were something special. I would like to see such sets added to the collections, too. And yes, all the speeders, too. Nothing (or hardly anything) is special anymore in this game anyway.

However, I think it won't happen. My guess: technical difficulties (limitations in the game engine).

Collections are a "simple" system, that has nothing or very little to do with engine. It is a XML file or some database that checks what you have.
So adding stuff to it should not be "that" problematic. The question is if BioWare wants to have non-CM stuff there.

BW are really inconsistent with Collections.

Example: someone asked a while ago why the original white crystals weren't in Collections. Dev response: Collections is for CM items. So if you get a Gree Red Sphere vehicle, you can't unlock it for other toons. If you get a Pale Rakling, you can't unlock it. If you get an Avalanche Tank vehicle, you can't unlock it.

Example: In Titles, they have the Founders Medal and the PTS titles. They were never available on the Cartel Market. They have the Razor crystal, they have the Collector's Edition items, they have cartel coin pets that are only available in the US. None have ever been anywhere near the Cartel Market.

So, is it only for Cartel Market items or not? We have the worst of both worlds. You can't get a full Collection, but you can't unlock the items you want.

It's super annoying.

This is true, the main reason is that they would have to enter these mounts into the database for collections, then they would have to add all the old weapons and armour into it as well, because they would have no reason not to.

Even if you limit it to stuff you can currently obtain (thus eliminating mounts, armour and weapons that has been "removed") it's would still be a sizable uptaking, with people complaining that their suff hasn't been added yet.

The main reason is that it's supposed to encourage you to buy stuff off the Cartel Coins, since everything that is sold there unlocks, and thus you can have it on all your toons/alts.
