How do you think you unlock them via Legacy, if not by leveling a character to 50 ... slick?

Much easier to just level to 50. I have better things to spend my hard-earned credits on.

Still, my original point still stands. You made the choice to do something that you hated. That was your choice, and no one forced you to do it. Why are more options so bad? I've unlocked a few species by leveling to 50. I don't begrudge people who want to buy them.

Isn't that what I first said? My complaint was that I had to level one to 50 to unlock a particular species as a class I hated. After I went through all that trouble, they decide to let people buy them instead with Credits. Now people can buy them for 600CC's. And now people are complaining that they have to pay 600CC's for the unlocks.

My point was...and still is...they are getting off lucky and should not complain. It sucks when you work hard for something, then later that same something you have worked hard for, is practically given away to others.

That's the curse of the early adopter. It's simply a fact of life. Things get cheaper/easier over time.

Which means the people crying about 600 CC's...need to be happy that got it for *that* cheap.

I'm with you there. Like I said above, I was expecting more in the $10 range. I think 600 is fine.

If they are patient.. they will focus on the preferred race and level it up. Everyone complains it's too easy to level to 50 in this game..so I don't see the problem.
The race unlocks at 50 are rewards for people who already have characters at, or near, 50. They're not incentives to level a new character from 1-50 for the sole purpose of unlocking the race for another character. That's why you can buy them.

I'm going to buy a species unlock today that I've been eyeballing just to avoid the temptation of using CCs on it. I'm thinking I'd rather use the coins on other things.

I wanted to save all my credits to splurge on new stuff from the market (that people will no doubt be selling) but I just quickly grinded out an additional 1.5mil over the last few days to supplement the cost.

My initial thought was that I'd use my free subscriber coins to unlock the species. But even at the "lower" price it seemed silly to me to use them on something I could get with just a minimal effort doing dailys n junk.

But I've always been one to freely spend the money I amass in MMOs anyway. So the 1.5mil credit price tag doesn't intimidate me to much. I figure the heck with it, it's not real money, I have a few mil still if something comes along I want, and I'm frugal enough in RL.

There's a conversation about this in another thread, but I'm pretty sure the unlock is account-wide and not bound to a specific server/Legacy.

IMO, that makes the higher price of the Cartel Coin unlock economically reasonable, because it would be working across any server you might play on and not on a single server as the Legacy unlock using credits would be restricted by.

I've been playing on the PTS and keeping up on the forum, and I don't recall seeing anything like this in 1.5, sorry. It's a big 'wish' item for a lot of people to get something like a barber shop, but I don't see it mentioned in the 1.5 patch notes.
