It seems to hold true for a lot of MMOs that I've played.
I always just blamed it on the supply being higher on weekends, due to more people playing and all.
Though I'm not sure why the "demand" doesn't rise with it.
Maybe it's just more people staying home, and spending the money they'd normally spend going out on the game instead.
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!
Join the Galactic Referral Army today and see the galaxy! (with a free character transfer and some other shiny Cartel Market unlocks!)
Suggestion for letting us add certain story characters to our Strongholds.

Got to say these armor parts are one of the best to date, and I really like them. Finally I have real cyborg! Behold the warrior with the mechanic hand!

Dunno how much it has to do with PvPers, but prices are lower on the weekend on BC, too.

I think you misunderstand how the texturing of the armor and bodies work. To make it to where you can select say a cybernetic arm in the character generation it could be done, but 90% of the armors you would find would cover this up. the same with legs, torsos, hands, and feet. So with most armors all those cool textures wouldn't even show.

Now, on that line of thought I guess they could separate the arms from the torso and legs from the groin area and make individual armor parts just for those areas, but look at all that would entail. they would have to make separate pieces for each body part, make sure they line up properly with every other piece of armor, rebalance all stats to take in account of all the pieces... and it just goes on and on. And if you think it's only bad on Bioware's end just think of having to mod each arm, each leg, each foot, each hand....

Armor sets like this are not the next best thing to having the selections in character creation, it is the best thing period for having a cool looking cyborg toon.

Well done.

In my case.. I put the full set (including melon ball head) on the companion.. but I roll with Mandalore helment, legs, gloves, and boots on my character.

I love how Mako sounds in conversations now with that slightly mechanical voice, and she didn't even complain much when I cut her head off and replaced it with the robotic one. Of course she was unconscious at the time... But she's good with it now!

I was thinking about getting the white Gree armor and going with just the head and hand but I like my bounty hunter like this. I might make a new trooper once I get the set unlocked in my collections and put her in that with a body type 3. That would look awesome I hope they come out with more sets like this

I don't really see how this is a bug, just a design oversight. Unfortunately, I doubt there is much that could be done as it is scripted for specific cutscenes to have the head slot hidden.

I know what you mean though. I tend to keep masks or helmets on the majority of my characters. A cut scene will start and suddenly I see their face for the first time in a few weeks and it always catches me off guard.

Oh I know it's not a bug, it's working as intended, for helmets. Like I mentioned in the opening post though this really isn't a helmet, but a full head. Take off any chest piece you have on with this part and look closely at it and you would agree.

what I'm asking is that since this is different from a helmet that the Devs code it to where if a character is wearing it that it doesn't come off during cutscenes. Or maybe give us a toggle on it to make it not come off during cutscenes.
