Sentences that end in a question mark usually contain some sort of question.

Neither side has gotten any new equipment, mounts, or pets since 1.4 that is not from ops or wzs. Maybe you didn't fully get the OP.

Let them increase the levels and difficulty of things first then complain about no new gear.

Seriously, what level are the mods we have now in armor? 63?

What? Not one post in this thread is asking for more stats. There is new gear added to the cartel market every other week. New empty equipment, new pets, new color crystals, new mounts. There is NO NEW ANYTHING being added to the game except via the real money market.

Why is BW not adding these things for subscribers within the game world without having to go through the market?

I think the jury is still out on this. The cartel updates are easy to deliver in a drip format. Content wise we got HK and quests with 1.5 and new PvP and space stuff in 1.6. 1.7 and Makeb will give us a much better picture IMO.

If it was obtainable from in-game, less people would want to buy it.

But, I am in favor of making it possible to sell all cartel exclusive stuff on the GTN.

Cartel market is mostly for free to play folks. Unfortunately, people who are subbed, also have to pay for items too. So we pay to play and then we pay some more.

Open your wallet and pony up the $$$ for the good ****.
if only there was a way to get Cartel Coins with out spending more money..... hmmm oh wait you can use your monthly alotment of CC on the items

OR

if only they allowed people to sell every item from the Cartel Market on the GTN... oh wait they do and people sell the armor pieces for in game credits.


so.... you don't have to spend a single dime
