I posted about this yestorday in my rant about the Heroes' Banner being able to be sold to anyone and everyone as it is unbound and comes free on any newly created character for people with the CE and i saw someone else say the DDE of the game.
TBH even if they dont want to get us much for our extra money we gave to them, it might be nice for them to have a sepperate part of the cartel market or maybe even something low like a 1-5% discount on cartel market. It would still encourage them to buy more, but not so big a discount to ruin their plans of making lots of money.
OTHERWISE maybe have some of the rarer items from the cartel market offered a month or two after they are first released for CE owners to be able to buy for a large price BUT the items are NOT tradable.
For instance i would like the mask or the throne, but i dont want to pay the server price of 10-20mil for each. However dropping 5 (about 1000CC) on them i might be willing to part with that if i knew i really really wanted it even if the newest batch of must have cosmetic stuff is out so the old stuff is out of fashion.

Or how about move rare Cartel items like the mask and throne to the CE vendor after a month or two, and make them character bound so they can't be sold on the GTN. Purchasable for credits, no cartel coins, as a thank you to CE purchasers. Because let's be honest, we've been completely ignored since launch.

It's a good idea, I think.

Anything but what it is right now :l
Bioware, please let us know if we're ever going to see iconic Jedi robes in the game... Or why not?

I think its amazing how we were promised regular updates and it was even confirmed by GZ before he left and yet....nothing. Sad thing is they couldve turned it into something great like a previous poster said. Instead Im pretty sure everything that we shouldve got/wouldve got is going right into the cartel store now. Just another broken promise and flat out lie from BW and EA.

Yes, and there is a pretty good chance that you'll keep being ignored. Out of all of the things that fell through the cracks, was eventually ignored, or recanted, this has to be at the bottom of the list of things for the very simple reason any resource that would be devoted to CE items, is, without a doubt, being used for shop items.

That idea is unrealistic. They aren't going to give away the things that people want the most There are others that I think they WOULD consider.
- A reduced Cartel Coin cost for everything but the packs.
- A random Cartel Shop item for sale for credits (75-500k), rotated out at random intervals. Yes, even the silly things like Glowing gold eyes.
- A random orange armor item (Empty), existing in-game (not Cartel items) for sale for credits (50-100k), rotated out weekly.

Quo vadis Bioware?

An idea someone had months back was that the geologist who sold all those fancy 41stat crystals for various prices could be brought back as a CE vendor with the same stock. Those who got there ones before are not at a disadvantage, and those who have CE get another crack at it.
The only thing that would need to be done i guess would be make the items bind on pickup rather than bind on equip so it offers no monitary bonus for CE players being able to sell rare crystals or white cystals.

It has been many month now, and no updating the CE store. One thing that I would really enjoy would be to have the outfits currently available to be legacy bound. There is a lot of opportunity with RP and other such things should that ever happen *crosses fingers*

EA has your money from the CE purchase. You're no longer any more valuable to them than the run of the mill sub. Enjoy the statue, enjoy the book, enjoy the in game items you already have because it is unlikely that you will receive anything else since it won't make EA any more money.
Do not dwell in the past. Do not dream of the future.
Concentrate the mind on the present moment.
