Oh thank you! I had visions of some prized diamond necklace ending up in a skip - in a large bin / garbage container - and people hunting all over for that valuable skip. Your version makes a lot more sense.

It's another way to display your digital bling to everybody. You have a cartel title, which cost you either cash or a large portion of in-game credits. It's a bit of a reflection on how titles became purchasable in our history, abandoning the idea of earning it and rising throug the ranks.

There is nothing wrong with it, just an interesting observation.

I got The Cartel Collector or something. I don't use any titles anyway though.

Stuff like "The Blockade Runner" or "The Skip Tracer" doesn't make me want to buy it - it makes me wonder why people do buy it. The people I've asked say they do it for completion (they have all the other titles or are working on them) but couldn't they just get all the non-CM titles?

There's something tacky about titles you bought, feels too much like real life
The whole title thing is kinda useless and it's a shame. I like collecting stuffs, such as titles, you know for show-off. But since there is no way for people to actually see the other titles you have acquired, it's pointless. Except for gear there's no way to show your achievement to the world in this game.

I miss my badges from SWG and the whole Collection deal.

No. Self branding for being foolish enough to play with gambling boxes.

So it's a good way to identify the people with more credits/CCs than sense? In that case, kudos to BW for making it easy to know who to avoid.

Most titles sells under 100k, if you think thats a lot of credits you might want to start playing the game lol.
Havent used my CC since the initial starter boost we get in November, its not worth it when i can buy everything on the GTN.

you'd avoid people simply because they may have (or may not the titles sell pretty cheap) bought a cartel pack?

wow shallow much?
