Nothing too say about the update for CS. Im just sorry too see that all your effort is wasted on the CS instead of the actual game. You will eventually loose out on so many subs and players this way when you put CS before the actual game. Its a shame.

I'd like to see some of the items that randomly are given by the Black Market, Blockade Runner, and Skip Tracer Cartel Packs available individually - instead of having to buy a lot of each pack just to hopefully get the items I want. Such as the: Advanced Pink-Purple color crystals, Advanced Cyan-Blue color crystals, Ambassador's Meditation Hoverchair, Diplomat's Meditation Hoverchair, Rendili Nightshade, Longspur STAP Royal, Aratech Scythe, Tundra Nekarr Cat, Desert Nekarr Cat, and Blue-Speckled Gizka --- because the prices other players tend to put them on sale through the GTN are, most of the time, way too high for most players to be able to buy.

Once in a while, there are some players who are nice enough to offer to give items that they don't want either for free or trade.

It would be nice to see a section of the Cartel Market for Crafting Materials, Color Crystals, Pets and Mounts.

I was highly unimpressed by this weeks cartel offerings as far as clothing goes. The new Inquisitor offering is dreadful. More purple, more skirt, more of the same old thing. There were so many more interesting colors and designs you could have gone for that were already out there.

Us Sorcs already have enough skirts and purple, give us more pants and more black robes.

Maybe some blue even?

just throw in a dye system and you can color all these new items as you want, bioware.

I can't see any other way that you can make everyone happy if all we can do is bind color to chest

+1 for a dye system.

Can we get any indication if there is an intention for there to be a gaderffii weapon added at any point?

Tusken outfit seems pointless without it (for a melee class anyway)

Please Bioware stop this CM stuff. It's not even worth buying this crap your giving us. All your doing is giving us old armor sets with a slight change in colour and asking us to pay for it. Please people stop buying on CM. Bw need to work on the bugs, not CM crap. The more we buy the more they will feed us with the crap that has been given to us. Let us work for it in game otherwise what's the point of gaming, I want to grind etc. not take out my credit card and buy crap.

I'm going to have to slightly agree here to a point. Long time player, collector ed subscriber and I've not been impressed with what is being offered and the prices for it. Right now I'm not spending a dime on this system. Still, as a believer in giving constructive criticism let me offer my two cents:

Costumes, Pets and Vehicles should be offered as an option of account wide and bound. 18 dollars for a single vehicle on one character is absurd. If it's going to be priced that much (and I do think it still should be lower) then I'd want it so every character I have access to gets it. Just do it like the collector's edition stuff.

I think I speak for everyone when I say we'd prefer to pay to improve our accounts and not a single character.

Second - pay close attention to The Secret World's free to play offerings. They allow the purchase of expansion packs under their in-game cash store. I'd love to spend my star wars fun money on the expansion pack and not have to deal with an extra charge. Also, it makes it easier for those who don't have credit card accounts to get access to the new location.

I'll pay 5 bucks for a barber shop coin or something that will let me adjust an existing toon to a better look then the one I chose.

I'll pay 12 bucks for a suit of faction armor like the imp commando or same for rep .

But I'll pay like 50 bucks if you add jawa to the cartel as a playable race so I can be a jawa jedi.

stuff on the market right now ....not impressed , have no need or want for it.

As many people have mentioned else where a lot of the outfits that are being added are already in game as part of the character creation process. Therefore no new work has gone into them and arguably should have been an option from launch for Subscribers.

Given this, isn't the price you are charging far too high as it hardly seems that you need to charge 15 bucks to cover the work of putting them in the cartel market. Its not like the money is going on a designer and a programer etc etc to put them in the game they are already there. Now accepting this is there any doubt that people are feeling nickle and dimed by BW since the free to play option. Any patch notes are filled with Cartel stuff and very little game related content for subscribers.

Is the ultimate plan to piss on or off all the people playing TOR till everyone gets the impression that they will be charged for every tiny little thing, next to nothing will be added to the game and should there be any new content it will appear in the cartel shop or via digital download where my cartel coins from being a subscriber are worthless?

Now don't get me wrong if you offered a decent selection of playable Alien (not coloured human) species I would be more than happy to pay. But at the moment it seems like the core game is being ignored while being over charged for things that are already in the game. Are things so bad over at Austin where the policy is to rehash ingame items for 15 bucks encourage gambling through lock boxes?
