They just plainly don't care unless it is Cartel Market related.

I'm not peeved about it...maybe because I endured so many years of it from FFXI...

But given an honest answer without beating around the bush is more rare than fixing a bug in SWTOR

We are aware that some players did not receive their subscriber reward Cartel Coins as expected this month, we’ve escalated this to our development team who are currently investigating the issue and who will make corrections to all affected accounts.

We’ve been advised that all players awaiting their grant should receive the coins due to them in the next 7 to 10 days.

Please accept our apologies for the delay in receiving your coins.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
i do hope some compensation is delivered!

Adding my name to those who haven't received my allotment. Things probably won't get fixed on the weekend, so, I'm looking for sometime this week (hopefully).

No Cartel Coins. The '7 to 10 day wait' is long over. Betting the Cartel Coins will show up in February.

For the typical actions of today's corporations, change "minimize" to "trivialize". It is possible SWTOR/Electronic Arts does not want to spook the analysts (see below).

I notice that you never stuff up taking my money...that part of your operation runs smooth as clockwork.

I am beginning to agree with some other comments that this is a ploy to get your customers to buy Cartel Coins to get more revenue by with holding our monthly stipend rather than an actual problem.

And the 7 to 10 days for it to be fixed is really not good enough.
Excellent point as the Electronic Arts Q3 2013 Earning Conference Call ( is January 30 2013. Here's last quarter's report:

This 'meeting' is a financial presentation from corporate to investors and analysts. "Some" corporations do "some" financial manipulation to beef up their end of quarter reports. "Some" corporations may move payments from the end of quarter to the next quarter. "Some" introduce new revenue at the end of quarter. "Some" Ad Nauseum.

Cartel Coins are paid with real money; a potential boost to end of quarter revenue.

If this is a real glitch, expect the Cartel Coins before the 30th. If this is a bottom-line revenue booster, expect the coins in February.

And if you're really a stickler for consumerism, try to participate in the Earnings Call and try to contact the analysts. Show them the threads ...

Waiting 2 weeks now for my Cartel Coins and every ticket i create is Ignored, not good enough. We all should get something as an way of an apology as well, as this is not good enough, your *********** over the people who pay the bills here. Not good enough

Been about a week for me.

Surely they can check their systems and see who has a sub and no coins and do something about it for the short term until they fix it?

Wonder if we will see any compensation, doubt it though.
The siege of Coruscant was in fact brought to an end after the republic agreed to give the Empire a Shrubbery, one that looked nice and wasn't too expensive.
