Considering his follow-ups are just the usual complaints implying anyone who disagrees are merely fanboys... yeah, I'd go with troll. The fact that STAPs have always been real money purchases of one kind or another is a valid point.

It's quite common for special edition exclusives NOT to be exclusive forever. You get to have them and enjoy them for a decent period of time before anyone else can, and that ought to be good enough. This is hardly the first game to do this. If this bothers anyone it should probably serve as a lesson for future collector's edition game purchases in general.

Horray! Now I, a valued paying member of the community, can purchase and flaunt an item that is relatively exclusive!
I won't ride it past the OP.

Really? I bought the CE cause of all the cool stuff that came included in the price - exclusivity means squat to me. If someone spent an extra $5 for a STAP, then so be it. I got mine with the price of purchase. Check your Epeen at the door - in the end, most people don't care about yours.

I think what pisses off most of them is that BioWare whored out the CE 'exclusives' as a $5 purchase for anyone to get. They didn't even have the grace to recolor them, just straight up merced the CE players.

Just a matter of time before the imperial trooper and republic officer uniforms are pay2wear.

I want updates to the collector's vendor also and not just to the cartel market. Show those who bought into your "collector's edition" that we meant something. We deserve something special to tell us apart from the usual crowd running and trolling around fleet. I'm just saying it would be nice since we took the extra step in supporting your great game early on. I am not trolling and ************( to an extend , maybe). I am just sick of items that I either worked my *** off for, or payed for are being passed out like smarties. I am not hating on people who disagree, it's just simple minds are hard to widen I guess.

But whatever. The fact is I'm still here after some many whiners left.

...I think it would help if your kind stopped thinking you were so special.

The Three Tiers of SWTOR--

1- Those who bought the Collectors Edition- Looks down on tiers 2 and 3, and think they are owed something for their "investment".
2- Regular Subscribers- A unique division that either just wants to play the game and enjoy it, and those that detest Tier 1, and looks down on Tier 3.
3- The Free 2 Play players- They just wanna play the damn game, stop hassling them, it makes you look like a self-centered [censored]-bag.

I usually never complain about the game, but damn bioware..... Keep some items exclusive and stop handing out items that represented something. Another example would be the flight suits. Shame to all those who worked their butts off in space missions to get it and now pay2winners can buy it.
Agreed on the spaceship gear....but the STAP is a different's not the same item. Besides, if you think people thought you were cool because you were riding around in that STAP, then only in your own mind. I'm so sick of seeing that STAP on all my alts, lol....kept using it because it was free.....glad to have other speeders to use on my toons now.

Not only CE stap model is no longer exclusive but the cartel pack ones are looking even more exclusive. The thing is... Golden :/

I got one... Please thank me for a victorious five-year fight for traditional Jedi robes in SWTOR.
