You get one Grand Chance Cube in every Steadfast Champion Pack and have a chance to get them from all other Command Packs currently available on the Cartel Market (they were introduced back with the Anarchist Alliance Packs in February of last year and have been a possible drop in all Packs since then). There are usually plenty of Grand Chance Cubes on the GTN because of how often they drop from the Packs.

Presumably you will always get one in every Dread Warlord Pack when those release in a couple weeks, as well, since they haven't said anything about changing that new setup that started with the Steadfast Champion Packs.

It is a slot machine. They are designed so you'll lose. Your argument that because you spent millions of credits and hours at this machine, therefore you should just get the rewards you seek is ludicrous at best. IT'S A SLOT MACHINE! You will always lose. How many times do you need to bang your head against the wall before you realize that it hurts?

To quote a friend, "IQ, meet Dishrag."

Shadow of Revan was 3.0, NOT 4.0.

NO.. they did not remove them from the slot loot table, they just made them a very low chance to drop when they swung the nerf bat. Which brings us to the nature of slot machines, both in real life and in game...... random chance = random chance.

This has all been explained, outlined, and documented in this thread... so maybe next time.. read the thread and stop the hyperbole.
Current use of smartphones and computers have already become such a part of who we are to which he sees them as an extension of everyday life that makes us “cyborgs. Further, AI is a serious potential risk to the future of humanity.

Maybe next time people should think before screaming to have something nerfed. It's why we can't have nice things in an MMO sometimes.

Ugh not this thread again!

But anyways, I dont think they will ever add back contraband slots. It was too problematic.

Quite a few folks did. I walked away for a while as well.

It was not the nerf that was the problem. it was how the entire thing was handled, from initial design all the way to the nerf bat. It was a pure debacle.
