I won't take that bet because it would be unfair to you, and here's why:

Logically, even if I accepted that wager, how would you ever prove me wrong? I put no ending date on "forward". I simply predicted that we would see at least one post from you after your 27 days of paid for sub time run out, specifically "Mar 15 and forward". At best, it could be argued that you have not posted yet, and therefore it could be argued that you have not resubbed yet. If you ever did resub and post on these forums, then I would win and be a million credits richer. Not really a fair bet for you, IMO.

It's about a 30% increase right?

So for the people who do progression and NEW players that's a problem. For anyone who's just leveling their first character their going to suffer. With the new repair costs you're going to be pretty poor until you hit 50.

If people want to say that raiders don't matter then think of the new players.

Additionally the GTN fee actually reduces the total amount of credits in circulation. If anything, The CM and transactions resulting from it have dramatically lowered the amount of total credits in existence. I might comment however, that given the system of keeping all cash on hand, standard economic beliefs don't necessarily apply and that its the total amount of credits used per day that matters, not the total amount available to the population.

Eh, maybe eventually. First, revert the code so those of us who got bent over can get unbent. Then take a good look at the math and implement something with planning and design and forethought and testing.

Overnight, my playstyle went from helping people in group finder flashpoints multiple times per day on multiple toons of multiple levels to not logging in. A lot of others changed in the same way, too. Many cancelled and/or threatened to do so.

The game is way more broken now than it was before the "fix", so revert the fix and then put the effort in to fix it correctly.

I think he means per account, the credits given to.
Doesn't raise credits as you say, but they effectively made it legal to buy credits with real money.

Its only a 30% increase on people wearing oranges who were previously not paying appropriate repair costs for enhancements in those oranges. I can confirm that lowbie repair prices seem to be as insignificant as they've been since 1.2. To make this absolutely clear, repair prices on greens, blues, and purples, should not and do not appear to have gone up.

Incorrect. Level 29 in all oranges with all level appropriate mods. One death about 1/3 into a flash point (as a tank) got an 8,800 credit repair bill. That's WAY outta whack with anything a level 29 could reasonably be expected to afford once, let alone multiple times.

This...so much this..
I have been running gf with newer people lately, and I don't mind after all you have to learn somewhere . But with the new repair cost, now it's kinda harsh to be that "teacher". So who suffers?? The newer people. Not really fair.How many here posting in EA's defense..knew that the repair bill was bugged?? I never heard of it until they decided to "fix" it. I fear that they are planning to release a cartel item for repairs or something along the lines.

What was that one quote ?? Something about buying bullets in a middle of a match when you run out??

LOL. You're funny, dude. You're chastising a player for criticizing things and call that "hurting the community" while it's what you do. He has a valid point and needs to be heard. Not sure the same pertains to you.
