Of course I am not too hurt about it, there is only one thing I really wanted out of them and I am pretty sure I will be able to get it off the GTN for a decent price once all the price gouging has stopped, and market forces kick in.
I like the idea of subs paying credits for CCs as long as we can still get the monthly allowance on top of whatever we spend our credits on. And yes, I'll probably visit the AH once things settle down too.

I find them fun. Bought 2 and got some good stuff. What I couldn't use, I gave to guildies, as they did to me.

Well just jumped on and bought nearly everything i wanted from the packs off the GTN for a pittance. Including 4 pets, longspur elite, few emotes, red eyes, imp banner, ball throw.... Prob 160k all up.
Just want the tythonian saber, Gizka and Monkeylizard now, oh and the throne, just not as much as there are plenty of them around.

Also where's the fancy looking pistol for my gunslinger?

The Crime Lords Packs are garbage. A total waste of money. (coins = money)

As a subscriber, I should be paying for all the content. But I have to pay more for cartel coins?

How about each subscriber gets 500 coins every WEEK, or two weeks, instead of every month, that way, your subscribers who already pay you monthly, some of them having been here since release, can have more goes at opening these "high value" lockboxes.

Or simply increase the rewards for them. Honestly, they aren't worth it. I feel stupid now for paying for them. OH well
You don't have to ever spend a single cartel coin. Fun is fun, but I'm sorry you didn't get any good items in your cartel packs.

I bought about 12-15 different packs, got a few mounts, a few pets, a number of boosts and crafting materials, and a few of the rare armor pieces and crystals. I doubt it was worth the actual money on these things, but the money I spent on coins was definitely worth it for some of the new armor sets, like the Outlaw's suit.

Again, though, you never need to spend any cartel coins. And asking for 500 a week is a bit overboard, IMHO.

I'll never buy one of those packs from the GTN ....those things are 500,000 credits a piece!

Honestly I see alot of whining going on.

You don't like what you're getting? Go cry about it. It's about chance. Luck. You could open one for the first time and get a Nihilus mask, turn around and sell it for nearly 2mil, or you could get complete crap. You might just be aiming for an item you want like a Heroes banner or glowing eyes. It's your fault that you bought it, so don't complain about it. Grow up.

I used my free coins on 5 bags and turned it into like 2,000,000 credits selling things and kept a few nice things for myself. Just a mater of luck.

If you're a subber you can just pretend the shop doesn't exist since none of it matters in the least bit. You can still blow your monthly coins on the least expensive bag and still have a chance at getting the rare stuff.
