Why do people have a problem with someone who wants to spend THEIR MONEY!? You think it's a waste, fine, don't buy it and save your collective breaths for your inflatable dates!

Actually it does. Why anyone would spend hundreds of dollars per month on cartel packs is beyond me. Most of the crap in those boxes sell for barely anything on the gtn, would be easier to just buy it with in game currency. Not only does it make them suckers but it screws over future games because other companies will see that EA gets away with adding micro transactions to all their games so now everyone else will do it too.

You must be on a bad server. I made just over 6M in credits from selling basic crap from these packs. Some of the individual items sell for millions each.

Oh, and I don't spend hundreds each month.

Other games have had micro transactions for years before this game. They wouldn't be going F2P with the Cartel Shop if it wasn't a viable business model based on the experience of other gaming franchises.

If someone wants to spend their disposable income on Cartel Coins and buy things in the shop, more power to them. These 'suckers' as they have been called are actually helping the survivability of this game.

Umm wouldnt the items in the new packs still be bound to account?
How did you sell it already?

Or is there no bind time anymore?

so quit, show these bastid devs who's the boss.... I play the game and sometimes buy cartel coins, wow, $20 really kicks my butt. I look forward to the new cartel items, I really do. Not a pack buyer but love me some of the speeders. What is the problem? Play your way, don't buy cartel points. Guess what, you can still play the game the way you want. None of this stuff really gives anyone an in game advantage.

Hey, sorry for the confusion. I was speaking to a few packs I bought over the weekend. You are correct on the Binding of items from the new packs.

Bought 10 of the new packs and have half of a bank tab filled with gear boxes. In one pack I got 3 boxes. Other than that craziness, I did manage to get 2 of the new lime-green crystals and a Ubrikki Talon--which is a Sand Devil with a Krayt Dragon skull on the front. I don't know if that's new, but it's awesome IMO.

Yep, that is the new one that was used for the pack image.
