Bioware would have no reason at all to do that, unless it was done as a mean for a game exploit.
And anyway if they decided to take action about the Hero's Banner (I doubt they will beside eventually patching the item), they can exactly know who was involved into abusing it with few requests on their server logs.

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?
Try engaging that lump of meat between your ears and reading before you hit the QQ button? There is a sticky at the top of this very board specifically created for issues with Heroes Banner and missing Party Jawas. But ok, I'll do it for you:

Last update I heard the missing Heroes Banner was a bug that is being looked at. The short term workaround is to create a new toon (because it is awared to newly created toons) and mail it to your main. Then delete the new toon and create another new toon, mail the banner to your alt. Rinse and repeat.

The fact that the banner does not bind is part of the same bug that is currently being investigated.

Of course, you could always do nothing and wait for BW to fix it.

Hope that helped.

Now to quote yourself "Try engaging that lump of meat between your ears and reading". I knew that the fact people wernt getting them was being investigated, and as i said myself, i knew that i could make alts and trade the items to my main. What i was unhappy about is that the item wasnt DDE or CE bound so was free to be traded away with unlimited stock. When they have put in loads of items that are Bind on Legacy, this should have been done to this item as it was a reward for CE or DDE players.
If you read the post they put up it just says they know that people didnt end up getting it when they should, not the problem of it being unbound so a free toy to all those with a mate with DDE or CE, or those stupid enough to pay for it.

Wait a second. Why aren't you blaming other CE owners? So, basically, other people who bought the CE don't need to feel "special" over possessing virtual items and would rather have credits and that's BW's fault? Sounds like some of your other CE owners have spoken and they don't care about having "special" items.

That's Incorrect. In 1.2 they added Taunta to CE Vendor. It was not there at launch. So other than that I completely agree with you. They should delete all heroes banners and resend them only to CE owners.

am I the only CE owner who doesn't give two ***** about a worthless banner I'm never going to use? I'm going to go put a ton of them on the GTN for 5 credits each just to watch you guys cry over it more~

Great so the toons that are supposed to have then don't recieve them, but they can be "made" by creating new toons and sent to anyone.

You couldn't make that up.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

They said "regularly updating", even with the most generous of definations 1 tauntan in 12 months isn't really that.

Same deal for me I have the Party Jawa but no Heroes Banner. Do I need to make a ticket or will Bio Ware fix it with a patch?
