The bigger question is why are these limits so low? You're ditching a ton of commendation types and yet you're cutting the commendation limits down from 1k to 200 or less?

This feels like punishment for people who enjoy playing a single toon - a lot.

WOW! Double feedback! Thank you Bioware team. I had to read it twice to validate I was seeing INFO.

It's nice to see the level of communication increasing. (Keep up the good work)

Good to know about the Gold Scalene and even better on the Planetary Caps.

SUGGESTION: Increase the Planetary CAP still. Seems pretty low still. (Maybe double?)

The planetary commendations are the lower level stuff. The Classic com storage cap is 800, the Basic com cap is 400, and the Elite and Ultimate storage cap is 300.

You allow more than 50 comms per planet right now, but after patch you're limiting it to 50 accross all planets. That makes no sense. The number is way too low and it doesn't "discourage hording" if there is nothing to spend the comms on. Many of us come back to use these comms to buy mods when we roll alts, but we don't know ahead of time which mods we might use in the future. I see no positives to such a low cap and only negatives.

In addition to removing Golden Scalene Armor with the next patch, your feedback prompted us to reduce the level requirement on all Cosmetic Galactic Reputation rewards to level 10. This includes Voss Ambassador's, Hyperspace Hotshot, Section Guardian, and all Scalene Armor.

In making this change, testing revealed that the Golden Scalene Armor's level requirement was also raised from 1 to 10. This means that players wearing the armor who are under level 10 won't get any benefit from the armor until the bug is fixed (we plan to deploy the fix with the patch following 1.7.2). We'll be sure this makes it on the Known Issues after the patch, but we wanted to let everyone know about this now. That way, if this will affect you and you're so inclined, you can hop on and level your characters to 10 before we deploy the patch!

One final related thing I wanted to slip in for anyone who didn't see my post here. Companion Characters will be able to wear Reputation gear after Patch 1.7.2.

Please remember that testing can always prove to delay things, so if any of this changes, I'll let you know.
I have a question about the Gold Scalene; will we ever see it again after it is removed from the Cartel shop? I don't have enough coins sadly and I'm not buying any soon sadly, so am I beat haha?

I was looking forward to the Gold Scalene armor to add to my collection of the other 3, but when I heard it was Cartel only it made me a bit sad - maybe an alternate version for Gree Legend status?

The game from 1-50 in patch 2.0 will be easier as you can use your planetary comms on any planet , so they had to have a limit on it of some value. 50 is a little low but it does encourage you to spend them more often than now. You do realise that you can even buy Makeb planetary mods with the same comms right ? They are 15 and 20 comms each for mods , I forget what level they are maybe about level 52 , so if they allowed us to keep our 700 comms on a single character it would be a little unfair as they could just get a whole bunch of cool items instantly. At least now I can use my 75 Ord Mantel comms on coreillia or even Makeb mods.

Just remember to spend a few comms before you start playing when 2.0 goes live , I suspect we will need to get our total back under the 50 mark from whatever amount we have at 100 or below , good times follow.

Cheers,

50 is too low imo. Especially seeing as we're getting them all consolidated in to one currency. Not asking for 1000 or anything like that, but even 100 wouldn't be so bad, imo.
