I'm actually a bit worse off since there is now stuff on the GTN worth buying, meaning my alts and their companions get pimped and my main pays the price.

If you stop stupidly spending credits, you will find that they are easy to accumulate.

It's funny how that mirrors real life...

I like how you just assume to think you know how I spend my credits. I hardly spend credits on anything, I'm not a mount or pet collector, I don't even have repair bills because all I do end game is pvp and the most money I've spent was on mats on the gtn to level up professions. I just don't have anything worthwhile to sell to make money....but thanks for your input.

It is no real problem making credits in this game. In fact it is really easy. I had 1.5 million credits before the server transfers and only used the GTN to sell one item for like 2500 credits and bought a couple items for less then 20k. That is it. Really no need to buy anything or sell anything for my char that is. My goal has never been to have a ton of credits. The smart lessons to learn in any game for gold or credits is the same ones for real life....donot spend more than you can afford and have patence for getting the things you cannot afford at the time.

I can see where those who enjoy using the GTN to make credits, the server transfers and influx of more players on thier servers would most certainly help them make more credits. Just not something I enjoy doing.

In a well designed game, the first part of that sentance is the answer to the second part. And with the (arguable) exception of Biochem/Cybertech, is in this game too. 'Course, one would also argue that buying mats on the GTN instead of running missions/gathering yourself cost you FAR more money than it would have otherwise.
