Of course I could also cry how I didn't get a new pet, like I wanted, but if I'm gonna cry about anything I'd rather cry about cash-only reputation.
So as I said, DON'T expect anything cool, will save you the disappointment. And if it will somehow turn out to be cool, then you will be even more happy.
You need to get your head out of your *** and not step in randomly on a topic before giving an attempt on posting about it with no previous knownledge.

EAware has admitted that they forgot about the CE vendor and trying to slap us in the face with the copy + paste from the advertisement that tricked everyone is nothing to say "oh look they care." They already failed because this clippy as hell, one color, 100,000cr DBZ-look-alike gear is NOT unique already.

My expectations on this whole game have been lower than any other I've ever played - it's not my fault that somehow EAware goes beneath that regularly.

It was actually pre-launch, shortly after the CE was announced and people were asking what the vendor was about before they laid down their cold, hard cash on it.

It was a marketing tactic that directly influenced purchasing decisions at the time of the pre-order and beyond, and that makes it even more important that BioWare makes good on this.

^ This.

But prepare for people to defend EAware and say we are the ones at fault.

i must say I'm disappointed wit this update to the CE store if we had gotten the transparent speeder that came in the new "Cartel market" it would have been great, but i must say this is the ugliest thing i have seen in a long time, i almost wish we didnt get anything in stead of this, a "Puff Gnarl" pet looks pretty good right about now

Depends on the person it seems, some people seem to care specifically about the items being truely unique. I think we should get around to identifying some items that we feel are desirable, and decide if we'd be cool with getting reskins of CM items in exchange for a higher quantity of updates.

Personally, as long as it's updated as regularly as the Cartel Market, I'd be sated. Doesn't need the volume, but the regularity is a necessity. That being said, the store was marketed as having weapons and armour that would differentiate us from other players as we level, and that it would update "dynamically."

They remove them pretty easy now. They didn't when first released but by September when I had to do it, easy as a phone call. The hard part was the wait time if you call during an update or whatever to flood the lines. But if you call on a slow day, it's a call less than 5 minutes.

Sure there is a video back down in the thread which I could track
*Best Dressed Jedi of 2014* http://mmo-fashion.com/tor-fashion-contest-results/

Atris' robes are great. But how about letting players wear the robes that are already in the game but not accessible to them?

Don't let your artists' work go to waste, Bioware

I cannot go into any details but I can say that we are exploring different ideas on how to give more consistent and regular updates to the CE vendor going forward. Again I cannot go into any details and these plans are not finalized, but we have definitely not forgotten about the vendor!

Eric is good people for the amount of contact that he has with this community... something that it should've had a year and a half ago and I hope it keeps up.

The people making the choice to flood the CM vendor/store with items and not putting anything on the CE vendor are the ones we don't like. The fact that there is a reputation vendor filled with unique items that is only obtainable through CM packs, is a slap in the face to every CE owner who was promised a vendor just like that at the beginning. We have gotten 2 updates (3 if you count the gear on the vendor being changed from light to adaptive) in a year.

Bioware most certainly doesn't care nor do they care to respond with a public apology for their choice to CONTINUE to ignore what was advertised and profited from. (the CE sale)
