I agree with OP about the selling of reskinned existing items, it's lazy and cheap. Shame on you bioware. I also don't know what to think about you spending so much on cartel packs each month, waste of money if you ask me...but it's your money bro.

Word. Even though I don't buy things off cartel market. Someone with 8 alts at 50 and play time every day should be able to buy pretty much everything from the GTN like me. Not that I've found more than one or two things I really have wanted (like legacy wide cargo bay unlock).

If the OP has been so disappointed by the Cartel Market items, why spend hundreds each month...? out of the charity of his heart? If you don't like what's on the market, don't spend money on it. Why not just play the game? If there's nothing fun about playing, isn't that more the issue than not being happy with what optional cosmetic items you can buy?

Unfortunately their take on the Cashshop has exceeded peoples worst fears about it pre-F2P (re-skins, ridiculously expensive, anything decent only being in a Gambling Pack and ALL content being released through it).


Class story I can't ever see coming back personally, they are struggling to create any content, never mind 8x content as L1-L50 class stories are.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

He says he's been spending on Gambling Packs.

With the odds on those things you could quite easily spend $100's and not get anything you want - it is in fact WHAT Gambling Packs are inherently designed to do.

I think the OP is right. They need to continue the class story. I'm still playing, have from before the official lauch, and still am. I'm patient, but its hard, when you dont hear any news or see anything that excites. I support the cartel market too, (I like clothes) but there isn't really anything that really pops out at me as being wonderful. The most exciting thing to me right now are Outlaw's boots. That's it.

I don't see why the OP shouldn't voice his opinion here, it certainly doesn't stop anyone else, and why should he be any different than anyone else.

True I've had my disappointments too, and unless they involved misrepresented products and real money, I don't say anything, and when I do, its more or less to save someone else money and frustration.

So ya, I'd like to see class stories continue, even if they only voice the companions parts, I'd be fine with that. More companion stuff...and hell, while I'm wishing, new classes and class stories, cause I've done all of them atleast 5 times...sw...proabably about 8 times lol.

Because there's a billion threads already about the way F2P has been done, and the dissatisfaction with the expansion. He doesn't need to make a whole new thread which just clutters up the forums, when there's a billion threads he can respond in to express his dissatisfaction.

Except that most of the actual items are things that nobody wants, so that isn't going to happen.

I am sure the OP would have been only to happy to spend his money directly on the stuff he wants instead of gambling for it.

He is right though, if I don't start seeing good content IN THE GAME rather than in the shop and don't hear anything about new class stories coming I can't see myself playing much longer. Playing through the same planet stories for a third time is grating as well.

I don't see the problem, just because they add a few things into the CM on every patch. You act like that is the soul reason for the patch, but it's not. They have so far kept their content patch promise, more or less. I see this middle stuff as a bonus. Besides, the more stuff on the CM the better, it makes it more enjoyable to look at and see what's there and it broadens the people who would want to use it.

Again, I think this is a case of jumping the gun. They announced a new expansion, and let that be the measuring stick on where this game is going, not little CM content patches. Then again, if you don't like it, then it is time to leave. And a 100 dollars a month is a lot man. Not saying it's not worth it, but I feel bad dropping 20 bucks every two or so months.

No offense to the OP, but you get what you deserve, for a lot of us the "final straw" came months ago, many stopped playing altogether, many took breaks and some just kept playing, but when we hit OUR point that we said "hey, this isn't working", we had to contend with you guys countering every complaint with a "everything is great" through all the lost subs "everything is great", people like you gave the DEVS cover to continue to make bad decisions and run the game the way they wanted (into the ground as it were), instead of responding to what the majority of their customers wanted, now most of those DEVS are jobless and you guys finally get it, sorry but recolored armor treats are how this game has been run from day one.
