And that is precisely the problem! As a subber I shouldnt have to pay additional $$ to get stuff but they are making it out to be that way - put out something that people really want then make the sucker subbers (who will always pay) spend more money to get it.
Thats just wrong.
Sorry you are wrong there is no way that you
have to spend extra $$ to get stuff.
No subber, including you, needs to pay extra. They may choose
to but that is down to them. If you want something from the cartel shop either have patience and save up your monthly stipend for it, or use in game credits and buy it off the GTN.
