1 today with the coins i just got for renewing subscription. Got a rank 5 gift, a useless republic banner, a completely uninteresting mount, an xp boost for 1 hour and a stack of 10 of some blue crafting mate - dont even remember.

I doubt im going to buy one again, i'll be keeping my coins for other stuff that might be added and include no RNG.

Bought about 8 got overlord chair in second pack but nothing really after that but cant complain!

When they introduce more rare items the previous rare items should become even more rare, unavailable completely or kinda like what they did with the white crystals and have time delay on availability. this would provide incentive to buy packs and also if you do buy from the gtn or get lucky via packs you feel you have something unique not something that everyone else will have in a few weeks.

From what I gather the main desirables at the moment are the mask of nihlas the overlord chair, white crystals and various class weapons so not really fussed on spending any more.

I wanted the chair and the blaster pistol which I bought off GTN so atm no real incentive for me to buy any packs.

If they introduced adaptable armour that I really wanted or new rare items I would probably spend a few quid why not.

Great introduction to the game and hopefully over time will generate the money they hoped.

I'd like to see them mix in some more orange armor pieces into the packs. The Covert Energy armor and the Elegant Loungewear pieces have a limited appeal but seem to be turning up way too frequently in the packs. Same for the pink-purple crystals. There seems to be decent variance in the mounts and pets though.

Don't plan on ever buying any gambing boxes.

Waste of time and money.

If I am going to waste money I will buy adult beverages.

I bought one for fun, but I am saving my coins for content, like Mkeb since there is a level cap increase with that planet, I figure it will be in the store.
I enjoy seeing what others have got from pack, showing off all their new toys is good enough for me..
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I bought a decent few just for fun. It kinda feels like pulling the arm of a slot machine when you open the pack (and I've certainly gotten all lemons on some). Though I didn't get the weapon I was hoping for, I got one I didn't need and was able to GTN it to then buy the one I wanted, so all's good.

But it does feel like the packs have a lot more "lemons" than "cherries". I have enough "Elegant Lougewear Caps" to start my own hat shop

ROFL! This last bit is classic and I have the same problem with all the packs that I opened. At least four people in my guild bought $120 worth of Cartel Coins to spend on packs. We all made a fortune in game and lost a fortune irl. I honestly don't care though, we all love the game and have no regrets whatsoever. We'll all probably be doing the same thing again as soon as they add more items to the Cartel Market and Cartel Packs.

1) So how many packs have you bought so far?
2) If you bought packs, did you get what you were hoping for more or less?
3) Have you or are you planning to purchase cartel coins to buy packs?
4) What would you like to see added or changed about the cartel market?

1) I bought 4... and I regret it deeply.
2) no, I got nothing at all of any value whatsoever. especially nothing commandy, and/or throney.
3) Never. I prefer to get some value for my real world money.
4) All items in gambling bags should be coin purchaseable in the market. gambling is for suckers. the house is the only one who wins.

If theres one item in the whole market i thought was cool, and I have a stipend of 3000+ coins to spend, why can I not buy the one item I want instead of randomly opening bags full of dog droppings?
