"25 complimentary stacks of faction-based fireworks"

After all the money we consumers have spent and dealing with problems with patches and game crashes, all you can give us is some stupid firework emote crap? Party Jawas and Fireworks. Whoopdy Do. Wow....what a "celebration"....this was really well thought out heh? "sarcasm"

Id rather have some ITEMS I can use and things I actually WANT. I don't know, like being able to mod ANY gear I want, since most high end gear looks like utter crap in SWTOR. I don't know, like being able to buy the EXACT ITEM I want using my Cartel coins (which I earned) and not some idiotic box I have no idea what I will get in. I could think of many things. Not being given garbage I have no use for or could frankly care less about.

This "gift" is just a slap in the face.

Why are people asking for a permanent version of a waste of time gift?

Mount, modable adaptive celebratory armor (Statless), unique colour crystal (Red and white if that isn't already done?) something that has some gameplay use please.

I also assume that there will be a standard double xp week or something that most MMO's have at this kind of thing?

I actually do mean to sound ungrateful unlike most other people, and I hate it when devs give gifts that only a certain type of player care about and that actively annoy other type of players.

The people at BioWare Austin that had passion for this game are gone, fired or fled, and what we have left are professional MMO babysitters who think typical MMO things like fireworks are "good enough".
and if this isn't the only gift?

Fireworks are fine but all I really want for our anniversary is an expansion announcement.

Basically another reason Bioware with an MMO is a joke. Fireworks really....well I guess if they would have given us something more perm. like banner, armor it would have been something already in the game, just a different color.

Cool Story. You can unsub under 'My Account'. The rest of us paid the same money and aren't acting like a spoiled child. Grow up.

Eh I appreciate the thought..However it seems a bit dull, like the glowing eyes from the CP, it gets old quick and really it is the 1st anniversary..could have been a little bit more creative. But thank you for giving us something I guess...
