Slap in the face from Bioware

Sorry donít get the complaint. I saved and got rocket boost and bought BH transport and leveled to 50 a Miraluka shadow, so I could make a Miraluka bounty hunter. Now all those can be unlocked for a few dollars, so what. I got them for free. Only thing everyone getting rocket boost means to me is now I donít have to wait on them in Ops and FPs. To me it isnít just a convenience to them, but it is a convenience to me too.

You know that the credits are fake, right?
In a week of dailies, you can get over 2 million credits. In a week of real life...well you get the idea.

When free money falls from the sky (and from mangled digibodies), it's very hard to compare to real world dollars. They simply have no equivalency.

Put another way, anyone looking at F2P sees $5 of real money in the same way that you see 2.5 million credits.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

Original argument analogous to:
I can't believe that I bought this space fantasy game only to find that it was completely free 11 months later! What the eff??

People are honestly complaining that people are spending money- money that will make this game last longer, and give BW more money for content updates?

If they make it too expensive, people won't buy it- offering items cheap is usually the best way to sell it.

i sense a lot of anger in this post
rocket boots are the goal for every player

Obviously, once you get Rocket Boots you've "Won" the game and it is now over.
