I think its kind of sad that CE players still think they should be special a year later....

I posted several times before the game launched not to buy the CE version just for in game items because those items will become available later down the road to all players, usually as a different color.... Standard MMO practice..
F2P is like driving on a long stretch of highway with toll booths every 1/2 mile

Can you not also still upgrade to CE, which means they get the same vehicle as you, and they have to pay for it? I don't see the problem.

If you wanted something exclusive you should have wasted your money on the statue you could get with the overpriced version instead.

Agree. That gold color is just gaudy. I'll stick with my white orginal which is now a level 3 speeder.

OP, I don't have an issue with it as an owner of a Longspure STAP from the CE., mainly because of what I stated above. It was surprising to see, but after getting a look at it... yea, I don't think they got the better end for the deal.

They obviously don't have resources to add new models to the game. I guess they could slap a new name on some existing orange gear and call it a day though.

Posting anything on this abomination of a forum is like trying to reason with or have a conversation with a mannequin. Utterly pointless.

they handed out the Longspur on day one of F2P when you could (and still can) buy the digital content upgrade for $5. Why is anyone upset that there is a recolor now? It's not like people couldn't buy the non-recolored Longspur before and it stopped designating anyone as a special CE/DDE owner as soon as F2P hit.

I have the CE Longspur and like my silver colored Longspur much more than the CM gold Longspur anyway. That someone can buy a speeder that uses the same physical model as my CE Longspur doesn't bother me since the color is just as important to me as the physical model.

I usually never complain about the game, but damn bioware..... Keep some items exclusive and stop handing out items that represented something. Another example would be the flight suits. Shame to all those who worked their butts off in space missions to get it and now pay2winners can buy it.

It was just a matter of time. Nothing remains exclusive when there is a shop to make extra off of a close copy of it. I'm surprised they bothered to recolor it.

Did you expect that everyone would agree with you? If you can't stand to have your ideas critiqued, then you're right, posting in a public fora is pointless.
