When the F2P service came out as Collectors Edition players we were meant to get a "Heroes' Banner". However you only seem to get one on making a new character. Because of this i can make multiple new chars and send them to my other chars.

What adds insult to injury though is that the item isnít bound or only usable by CE players, so I could or anyone could just send them to anyone, thus making our CE special reward even more WORTHLESS.

This just adds the sour cherry to the top of the already bad tasting ice cream that you had said you would be adding more items to the CE vendor and VIP vendor in the VIP room, and have added nothing since launch.

I seriously wonder why I even bothered to buy the CE version of the game at launch when all we got was a single set of armour to ourselves, and a companion pet if we wanted to buy them.

Will I and other CE players actually be getting something for ourselves to make up for this load of rubbish and broken promises we have had to put up with?

The obsession with the "unique" item in this case was that it was meant to be our reward for being owners of the CE version of the game that we had paid for.
I know for our extra money we got things like the malgus dolly and the CD soundtrack and Artbook or whatever it was. And most important the Security Key.
But this was meant to be a reward for us, not as someone else said something that could be spam created by making new chars and posting them to anyone and everyone.

I'm glad it's not bound, that means I can sell/give away any ones I don't want to people who do want them. I'd say you'd be amazed at what people buy but you probably wouldn't (this in reference to me selling a couple copies of a free item in LOTRO that is easily available to every player who owns the questing area).

Besides, we got 1000 cartel coins for our CE. The coins are more valuable than the banner, I would think. Plus, didn't DDE owners get the banner as well, after complaints that they wouldn't be getting it? I know it still says CE on the free page but I swear that they changed it (not the page, obviously) to include DDE owners.

I expect it to be fixed in a future update. Because I'm sure some players are already exploiting this bug, creating and deleting new characters in loop just to to sell the hero's banner to other players.

To fix the damage already done is another story because while rolling back GTN transaction involved with the Hero's Banner could be easily done, it's not the same story about player to player trades involving more than a direct credit trade.

Bioware could also just decide to delete every Hero's Banner on non-CE accounts. But that would not be really fair to the innocent buyers.

Or they could replace every Hero's Banner on non-Ce accounts with a Republic or Empire banner. That would be more acceptable I guess.

Or they simply gonna do nothing about it and say that is how the item is supposed to be in the first place

Just as long as they don't decide to start banning players who are creating and deleting alts constantly... cause I've done that since the start of the game. I'm always trying to get them to look 'just right' before leveling and can spend a whole day just creating and deleting alts.
