How Many Cartel Packs Have You Bought?

I've only bought 2 so far on live... most of the stuff I wanted I was able to buy off the GTN. I would like to see some more equipment, and more choice, so for example pieces of the set sold separately. I would also be happy if there was another kind of pack that was offered without companion gifts and materials, say something like 2 random rares and one common with a chance of a very rare. However, I am pretty satisfied with what I have right now.

1) So how many packs have you bought so far?
2) If you bought packs, did you get what you were hoping for more or less?
3) Have you or are you planning to purchase cartel coins to buy packs?
4) What would you like to see added or changed about the cartel market?

Feel free to share what you got in your pack(s) on the roundup I've started. Thank you.

None. Don't plan to, either. Too many alts to buy speeder piloting with, and more useful things.
I find your over-inflated sense of self worth disturbing.

1. About 16.

2. Not really. Got a few mounts and pink crystals that i'm using and the Spymaster chest and gloves ... that's about it.

3. Not anymore no. I'm not a fan of "gamble bags" and got enough mounts for my characters so i'm done with the packs now. The rest i'll get on the GTN.

4. More weapons. More gear. I can't say I like a lot of the gear on the market at the moment so some new ones would be great. And i'm a "collector" of weapons for some strange reason (I blame Fallout 3, my gun stash was immense) and want a more varied selection. But I want them sold on their own, not in packs.

From what I have personally seen, I can tell you right now that EA/Bioware has made gobs of money on this move. Now will start the ever increasing habit of adding new items/content via the cartel market. Subscribers have posted up way too much incentive with their dollars, and EA is now drooling.

What is being said doesn't always jive with the truth of what is being shown.

I agree Gomla, there should be more weapons available for direct purchase, the axe is nice but really I think they could use a few more, like a gaderffii stick or something, or one of those ewok bows hehehe.

Got the crime lord title.


Personally, I weep for humanity. People know its a gamble, dump $80 into cartel packs, and have the audacity to complain when they don't win.

None. They FUBARed my coin balance and haven't bothered to do anything about it for 4 days.

I bought a dozen

I got a couple new speeders that are cool. The Crime Lord title, nifty. I got 2 really awesome pink-blue crystals that i use

Purchased them for the mask of nihilus, didnt get it. Watch the price of the mask go from 5mil to currently 1.5mil. Still more than i have, or would spend but it seems more obtainable via gtn than box
