Perhaps I'm missing something but there are unique PVE only mounts like the Titan6 mount and EC NIM tank mount that are not available on the CM. Why aren't there PVP only mounts?

I'm not a regular PVPer and I understand that reusing art assets is the economical choice but on the other hand exclusivity should be given more weight.

The S&V mount is just plain old ugly. Nobody wants that.

The EC NiM tank mount pre-dates the CM, but other fully-enclosed mounts such as the Stardrive Flash are starting to appear in the CM, so it seems likely we will see similar mounts in the future, probably more tank-like.

The TfB pod is a Gree-style mount, and there are others available through other means, including the CM.

meh, edited just for you.
point is, it's no longer (or ever was, i guess) a unique mount.

If you look at printed Biographies from the last 500 years, almost none is about a person from the hard working classes (the "bottom feeders", as PvP players call them) (from which The Beatles stem from, by the way), but almost exclusively about those who had profited from their hard work. If you look around, you can see luxurious mansions buiild by those who had profited by selling the things at an high price without paying a lot of wages to those who work at the bottom. In Bangladesh, one of the countries which is at the same time one of the poorest countries, and at the same time producing most of our "western" clothes, workers were killed because firm owner gave a BEEEP on building security. Everyone believes that "workers ? They are easily replaceable". The police was ordered to shoot at those who did a protest for higher wages only a few months ago, if I recall the newspaper correctly. To put it cynically, in an Machiavelli way of thinking, there always has to be a country in this world that is poor, because this is the only way to ensure that there can be factories in which people are paid much, much lower wages than in the richer countries. Good, if such a country is drained by a Kleptocracy, because that means that people will stay poor.

That is why I'm against Eliticism, so, introducing actual rewards for being an Eliticist is for me not understandable. It just supports the way of thinking that "we are the top, everyone else is just a "bottom feeder", "window licker", "keyboard turner" or simply a "bad". With the several meanings of the word "bad" most likely being intended.

Giving out rewards for Eliticism just makes people think that these rewards officially allow them to be rude to everyone who doesn't belong to their circles of Elites.
Oh boo hoo, you don't have the patience or skill to complete the hardest content in the game so you're going to call it eliticism because for some strange reason you find it unfair even though you can obtain it yourself if you bothered to put some effort it.

There is nothing wrong with having unique content that has to be EARNED through participation and completing difficult content. The point of doing the harder content is to be REWARDED. I mean, would you compete in the olympics if everyone who was competing got a gold medal? "Congrats all, you're all amazing, heres a gold for EVERYONE!!! WOOOO!!!"

The tears.... they are simply EPIC!!!

(And thanks, BW, for confirming what I already suspected anyway. I'm just surprised so many didn't see the 'future options' of the Rancor coming, or actually believe it wouldn't go down like this. I'm one of the people who don't PvP and felt that the Rancor should be exclusive (at least, for a good time) to the 1500+ ranks (not even sure if I even want one, tbh), but I knew in my heart that EA wouldn't let an opportunity for future cash to come in...)

So, I think it sucks for the PvP players, but I also feel it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been playing this game for any amount of time. Still, doesn't stop me from enjoying the wailing and gnashing of teeth...

Perhaps you need to re-read Eric Musco's post.

The reason why? Because you should have to be able to work for something if you have it.
News flash to you: TOR is a game, not a job. If you're "working" at it, you're doing ti wrong.

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
I think UO and EQ1 are still around. Knock yourself out.

I thought you could buy high level characters in EQ1 though , that isn't "earning" anything or "working" for anything , not sure about UO though.

The old school MMO's of old do indeed seem to be dead or almost dead. If you have a cash shop of any kind , then the player can bypass things to gain ground without having to play the game much. No matter , I kind of like the hybrid model of SWTOR at least it kept it going.

It's all just really underwhelming. They postpone the announcement of the rewards of season one (which should have been announced AT THE START of the season to begin with) and then give us "exclusives" that aren't even exclusive. This tiny variant **** is getting old BW. This coming from someone who has played your game since early access.

Where's the incentive? Rehashed existing armors and mounts that have a slight visual change to make them "exclusive"? None of the systems to properly support competitive play like a tournament system with meaningful rewards, cross server q's, more fun gametypes?

Your hype has once again been a load of hot air. You keep making us excited for "awesome rewards" and changes that will make us happy that just disappoint your loyal playerbase. In that sense F2P has really killed the spirit of the game I feel, slight variations on the same mounts being sold over and over again. Too much emphasis on how you should be optimizing gains from the cartel store instead of finding areas in the game that need actual improving and bring the fun back into the game. What is the sub money going towards? Either these last 2 expansions live up to your hype and actually deliver, or this game won't see a succesful 4th year imho.

FUMING MAD .... what the hell ... why should there be a special mount just for pvp'ers ... and why is it a rancor.

Last thing I want to do is grind pvp that much so I can have the rancor mount I have been wanting since launch. Please tell me there will be a rancor mount for PVEers too. So sick of this game giving hand outs to PVPers and wondering why its PVE players are dropping like flies.

PVP doesn't keep MMOs alive PVE does ... time Bioware starts realizing this before this games PVEers start looking to other games ... see how long this game lasts without its Raiders and PVEers.
SITH HAPPENS
