That's cause there isn't enough red wine to cope with the state of the game. Everytime I try to fill the glass it's already empty. I stopped trying to fill the glass. Now I just pop the cork and stick a straw in the bottle to drown out my swtor misery 😉

Well you certainly know how to contribute to the "crappy mood".
Goodbye all, it's been fun. Time for me to move on (it's ok to cheer ).

You certainly know how to exacerbate it.

Should we stop or would you rather we play word tennis for a bit longer?

So you think this replies makes it better or worse again?

How about we try something different... Answer me this: Do you think that your original reply was a positive reply or could you possible fathom that it may make the op feel like you don't take his disappointment seriously?

That's how it sounded to me and so I don't feel you have any ground to stand on.

I was making a statement that it could be worse. You then piled in with your disease analogy completely taking it out of context. My first post was an aside, yours was DOOOOM.

Who's being more negative? The guy who makes a glib remark or the guy comparing things to diseases.

Just as a further aside, I hate RNGs too. But it could be worse. The game has far more issues than a screwy RNG.

In fact the mistake I've made is coming to this forum in the first place as a two month old player and allowing myself to be caught up in the misery.

I'm not going to bother with arguing with you further as going from what I've seen you seem intent on popping at everyone. Consider it a victory if you wish.

I've always loved the thrill of the hunt if I may be so honest.
That feeling of working hard and never really knowing what you're going to get, sometimes it's a lot and sometimes it's close to nothing.

But it's always something!

In addition I would also like to point out that the same toon that opened those 42 command crates, and is now lvl 227 in command rank, is also still sporting several pieces of tier 1 equipment, because the drop rate is so low that it is nearly impossible to acquire a complete set of tier gear before reaching the next tier. This is ridiculous, and leads to severe frustration with the grind. When you spend hours and hours grinding away at something, only to receive little, or no reward at all, this makes you not want to bother at all. Please, either scrap the RNG system completely, or seriously increase the drop rate of tier appropriate gear in the command crates. In addition, you might want to consider upping, astronomically, the amount of unassembled components being distributed during PvP. If it is your attention that multiple sources be used to acquire gear, then increase the reward for doing so. I would also like to suggest, in the event the current system continues on, which I fear is highly likely, Please fix it so that if you are given a duplicate piece of tier gear from the crates, or given a piece that you do not wish to use, allow the players to swap that piece for a piece that they do want/need.
Dont spend hours grinding away at cxp when you know the chance for gear is RNG.

GC isnt intended to gear you up at your expected pace.

You have a flawed view of the loot system.

In fact, you can do stuff in game that will give you the exact legendary item slot you want while also getting cxp (without grinding) and end up with twice as many legendary items.

This RNGesus iteration is the most beneficent entity ever created in comparison.
I have the case for the Dark Elves Edition about 2 feet to my right as I type this because I played it this week instead of logging in to swtor.

At least the loot system itself isn't flawed.

It's far from perfect, but the fact that you have to propitiate the Mistress of Pain to get the item you want is not one of its flaws. I'd also point out that She is grumpy as all hell, so propitiating Her is unlikely to get you anything anyway.
