because ranked popped had literally died by the time they reset rating and season 1 officially started.

remember it started way after arenas went live. the only servers with ranked pops were pvp servers, others had the occasional group ranked but solo died within a month on most servers, way before season 1 started lol.

thanks for the "unique" mount devs. rather, the unique skin lol.

Can't reskin a mount that doesn't actually exist, that will be completely exclusive for at least 2 months, and even then only accessible to the relatively small number that can clear NiM, and they still have to hope that it drops and even if it does they only have a 1:8 or 1:16 chance of winning it.

The Rancor should be exclusive to the top dogs in PvP and remain there. The reason why? Because you should have to be able to work for something if you have it. Too many times these days games come out and there is absolutely nothing that you have to actually work for anymore. The items don't have any real...pride behind them because you know you are going to get them if you keep doing that warzone, or raid.

There needs to be systems put in place again in games that reward the people that are good at what they do. Everybody should not, I repeat, should NOT get a reward just because they participated. If you want something? You work for it. You sweat for it. You give it your 100 percent all. If you fail? Keep going and next time do it! It might take 100 times for you to fail. But when you finally get it and you get better at it and you KNOW in your head that you did it and earned it, there is nothing else in the world that is a better feeling than that.

Too many people these days have been raised or are raised on the notion, "Everybody deserves a chance to win. And if they don't win you still deserve a trophy for trying." No, no, no. That doesn't teach anything! All it is doing is not hurting the person's feelings. That's it! There is no logical sense in giving anything away because what it is doing is automatically taking away the feeling of reward, accomplishment, success and pride of knowing YOU did it. There is no appreciation anymore for the thing you just got and worked towards. There is no more, "wow, he's really good. I want that! I think I'll work really, really hard for it so maybe next time I can have it." Why would somebody do that these days if you just get it for showing up?

Also, too many people these days give up. Surrender. Quit. You know why? If they do not get what they want the first go around, a lot of them mentally quit. They give up. They cry about not getting that thing that is at the end because "it's too hard" or "screw that, I just want it without work". That is BECAUSE of the way children are being raised these days. They expect too much. You should NOT get a trophy for failing. If at first you fail? Keep going! Keep going! KEEP GOING! Never give up. Never surrender. Never quit. You will notice that before long you will be very good at skills that are in the path to get to the thing you want. And when you get that something? You will feel 100x better than if you just had it handed to you without doing the work. I guarantee that!

Keep the Rancor mount to the top PvPers. Get this game back to the old ways of mmos where you need to work for something to have it not just have it handed to you because you participated in playing the game. Thank you.

This model can only work in pure-subscription MMOs. In hybrid or F2P MMOs, demand for such items is how the game receives RL money to fund continued development.

Cool...I always prefer the basic versions anyway.

The old ways are fading. Which is basically the point of my futile griping. Exclusives or first gets aren't a part of why I enjoy playing, but I recognize that it matters to plenty and prefer to see the want it/earn it model favored over shops.

It's reality but I reserve the right to ***** about it.

Thank you Bioware.

In short, the specific appearance for the Arena mount and the Cyborg Rancor Ops mount will be unique models, but you can expect to see other Rancor mounts around the fleet in time. Hopefully that answers your questions.

Thanks!

How come a Rancor mount is being a rare drop in NiM DP when it should be a NiM DF mount due to that's where the rancor is.
