Barbershop sounds fantastic. But please add some black hair options to the mix. My guild (the globetrotters) want to have some new styles for our toons some nice fro's and a black moustache option would be nice maybe even some crazy samuel jackson style sideboards.

Can we see pod / speeder racing and speeder customisation in game now that the cool speeders are being released ?
imagine racing people on tattooine while npc tuskans took rifle pot shots at you ?

Just for the record decent drops via the cartel packs seem very rare is there a chance the decent drop rate percent could go up. Im thinking twice about dropping money on packs because of this.

Cathar is pure woot

Surprise surprise one of the most asked for features since launch will revolve around the cartel market. The funny thing was I thought the cartel market was kind of cool at first, now I see this trend where everything players want like vanity is put on there.

If they put some of these cartel items into content like flashpoints or operations I would probably be running them to get what I wanted instead of taking a chance with the item packs.

I agree that this is rather foreboding, regarding the market. I, for one, hope that they will find a balance in what they throw into their new sandbox/playground and what will be purchasable at vendors.
Yes, the balance will be 95% CM to 5% in-game *snorts*.

That Hickman guy..... I kind of begin to realize why people thought he would be the one to ruin this game. He already does.

You're adding a barbershop feature to the game, but gating it through the Cartel Market. Why shouldn't players be able to change their appearance using in-game credits? I understand charging for a racial change.

Pretty uninspired state of the game address. Take some passion in what you guys do, or has EA beaten the creativity out of you?
First F2P game, eh?

My one concern is having to pay cartel coins for something as trivial as changing hairstyle. A full body type or species change I can understand would be a cash option as these are pretty major changes, but I would have hoped changing hair style/colour or facial tattoos would have been available for in-game credits as it's something you may want to do quite frequently if you RP or even if you just get bored of your current look.

I guess it's time to start saving my monthly CC grant...
A race change might be a big one because you have very different options race-by-race.

All other changes are minor. Change a value in a field in the database. Done.

Charging cartel coins for these is absurd, but EA gonna go after the $'s until they force everyone away.

What i would like to know is when are we going to see a launch for Latin America, or at least a patch for spanish language, there is a general bad feeling towards the game here in latin america because people feels that we are beeing treated like a third class market, most people have to use proxies or VPNs just to create an account because the website don't allow it from latin america, you have an interesting market here but you are wasting it, you should learn a couple of things from blizzard on how to treat other markets besides USA and Europe.

Good to see a barbershop and hood toggle coming. the game desperately needs quality of life improvements.
Though I feel they should be there in game for subs, not for cc only.
