Agreed!

I enjoy the extra bonus's that the market provide. We all had this game.....without the market for a long time - and I enjoy the game far more now, that I did before.

It's never going to happen. The whole purpose is for BioWare to make money, gambling the main one next to subs.

This game has hatred for everything they do. You kind of get used to it.
and the Force beat generic Swords and Magic any day. 8/26/14 That was my old signature but after RotHC, I went back to superheroes and swords and magic. Now waiting on Dragon Age and a SWTOR story expac for my Bioware fix

You must have me confused with someone else.

I love the Cartel Market, the Armor and weapons are awesome. Have you seen the Tac-HUD Sniper Rifle? It's the most epic-looking Sniper I've ever seen. And the Covert Ops Pilot Armor looks awesome, I love it.

Plus the Cartel Coins are good for saving millions on Legacy Unlocks.

It's more than just a little ironic that this thread is receiving overwhelmingly negative feedback while, concurrently, there is another thread (right below this one) running strong called: "Gear from content, not from market!" that's been met with general agreement.

I'd absolutely do it because I'd know the population was paying what I did to participate. I'd know they cared enough to truly support the game.

But, I'd rather not see this option. The media would judge it harshly and heap bad press on them.

Well actually, if it was technically simple to do, I'd support that in general. Some of your suggestions are intentionally silly, but you could certainly come up with some servers that a lot of people would like to play on.

The two main changes we'd need would be adding cross server pvp and pve, at least within a group of servers to make the population big enough for que's.

The visible & que population then would esentially be the same as instances make it now.

Sorry, but I don't see how something like this would equate to negative press for Bioware? If anything, they'd be hailed for trying something different. Especially since they don't actually NEED TO (F2P has been a resounding success).
