So glad I've got my TJR atlhough I am not happy with the story ending in a cliffhanger and not reuniting with my favorite companions.

To take a more optimistic view, those were packages offered in conjunction with KOTFE/KOTET and they were at least two years old. It could be that they're preparing to release new ones. Or it could have been that there was an issue between Amazon and EA that needed to be resolved, or that the Battlefront issues carried over.

Or... enough people are buying cartel coins and subscription time from the SWTOR site directly that it had become an unnecessary detour to buy it on Amazon. Are we all collectively forgetting we can also buy those things from the Store on this site which is frankly the easiest and direct way? I wouldn't be surprised if 90% of the players bought their sub time and cartel coins directly from this site.

Also, do you think SWTOR would enter in a promotional contract with NVIDIA again like they did now if they were shutting down anytime soon? Think, think before you start assuming the worst. What is more likely? The devs invested a lot of resources, time and money into new soft and hardware for server merges to shut down the game a few months later? It is more likely the devs are silent because they are working on the as of yet unofficially confirmed expansion rather than that they are shutting down.

Again, think before resorting to doomsaying.
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

Plenty of cartel coins and SWTOR packages still on Amazon in the UK so maybe it is just a regional thing?

One of these days, these threads will be right, then they can come out and say "See, I told you so. I saw it coming months ago" Even if no-one will be here to hear it. Yay.

The only reason why doomsaying posts are made. But rational thinking and reasonable logic? Sorry, you won't find them here except in replies such as yours or mine.

I think that's the first time I've ever been accused of being logical.
