Or...have most players not hit the brick walls yet?

Personally, I find it strange that people are up in arms about the cost of features that haven't even been added to the game yet when sizeable chunks of 2.0 remain broken. (like the missing speeder parts & uncompletable achievements - just 2 quick examples)

And few people seem to care.

I feel like this stuff should be a priority since it is "already advertised & paid-for" content.

Frankly I don't care. If I hit an achievement while I am playing I just think "Cool..."

I don't go out of my way to get them - I know I will never get them all. I have no objection if other people want to get them, though

It's a concern, sure. I can't speak for others...so I will just say in my case I don't really care too much at this point. I am just glad it's in the game and will continue to press them to fix it.

I'm more interested in expanding convenience, sandboxy features and customization honestly than I am with them fixing it right now.

right noqw the achievement system is a bit too new so people arent doing them that activly yet
also the rewards for doing it arent really that good
(cartel points but its only 10 points for 10 achievements)
just give it some time to get fully integrated (and fixed) and people will start running it when they fcompleted everything else already

Yeah, thats pretty well me, that and the fact theres plenty in there that no one will ever achieve.
If it was retroactive, I and many others would of been more warm to it, but there is so much in there that people just won't be doing anymore.
Then there's the stupid ones, like the level 50 SM flashpoints 25 times, or the rare items that are no longer available, the pvp achievements mixed in with pve ones.
Basically, the whole thing is an ill conceived stupid mess, and most people are treating it with the contempt it deserves, ie, ignoring it.

I've never really cared about achievements in any game. Just seems like bragging rights and a lot of busy work to get them.

BWs "token" gesture of awarding a tiny amount of CCs is at least more than most other games with achievements offer, but really it isn't much of an incentive. At least with the reputation system you can unlock gear and other items that you might want.

I just see it as a smarmy way for BW to give certain people something to do without really having to create any content. I guess it's cool for people who like collecting achievements. It's just not something that I care about. When one of them flashes at the top of the screen, I don't really feel any sense of accomplishment.

To each his/her own. It's no skin off my back if someone wants to put themselves out trying to complete them all.

I actually tried hunting for some achievements but lost interest in it quite early cause of the bugs. If they gonna fix it at some point, I will see if I go and hunt for them again. In the meantime I just don't care and don't wanna spend energy on thinking about this. It is always the same, when you open up a topic here you never know if someone at BW notices it.

Pretty much OP. I could care less if I don't unlock all of it.

Honestly could careless about achievements in games. If I happen to get one, ok. Otherwise I don't go out of my way to bother with them.
