Jesus, you could of just bought 600.00$ worth of credits from a gold seller and purchased whatever you wanted or even buy thing off the CC store and sell them on the GTN if you saved all the CC's over the months.

*** WERE YOU THINKING

(god I hope this a troll post)
Yeah, I was bit stunned myself. That's a mortgage payment, being dropped on freaking pixels, that aren't real, and that will taken away when the game folds, whenever.

That's just freaking insane. There is having fun, and then there is having a problem. *shakes head*
There's been an awakening. Have you felt it?

Why do people continue to gamble and buy these packs? it just shows that suckers like this will throw their money away for nothing and encourages bioware to put all the cool items we SHOULD be able to get as subscribers into these packs, these items should be in game rewards for loyal subs not a g amble taking away dev time of subs.

It's fluff mostly. Get over it or just do like some of us really: Do lots and lots of dailies and weeklies, in order to amass enough credits to buy the stuff you care for in the GTN.

It's an MMORPG. Grind - or whatever you call it - is a part of it to obtain what you want, whether is gear or fluff.

I don't think that was the point...the point isn't that the person bought a few packs...the point is they spent $600 freaking dollars on this crap. This isn't even real stuff, its pixels. I suppose it's their money, but when you come on to humblebrag about how much you just spent on fluff and that you didn't get what you wanted, when that could pay a mortgage, or a car, or food for a few weeks, there will always be people who stand back, and marvel at the sheer stupidity.

But I have to agree, as long as there are fools giving out that kind of money, there won't be much decent stuff for loyal subs.

600$ worth of Cartel packs?!? Good god I wish I could waste that kind of money on entertainment.

For half of that money, the OP probably could have just sold of cartel packs, bought what she wanted, and be set for next year or so depending on her spending habits.

If you truly bought 15 Hypercrates, at a rate of 5400 CC per 39.99 (add in .07 state sales tax going off of Indiana sales tax) you have spent...and someone might want to double check my math on this...roughly $825.81 on Cartel Market items.

My God. I cannot fathom how one could drop so much cash, let alone 300$ all at once for pixels. Is your daughter being fed properly? Should we perhaps enroll you in some gambling addiction program? Jesus Christ woman! nearly $900.00 on a video game, not even on the game itself! Cosmetics! ***!?

I feel terrible for you (only slightly) and even more so for your daughter. What kind of example do you think this sets for her? "Oooh, I want shiny, must go in debt to obtain "x" item at "y" cost.


Jesus.

$825? Come on now, he had it easy. You people ever heard of the unusual burning team captain hat in TF2? Last I checked it ranged somewhere in the amount of $2500 - $4000. And it does nothing whatsoever, you don't even see it 90% of the time you spend in the game because it's an FPS.

This is going to sound harsh, but everyone throwing money at these packs and buying them in large volumes is part of the problem. The more people are willing to buy crazy amounts of hypercrates, the more it encourages Bioware to fill them with useless items and reduce the chances of getting anything decent from them.

Each patch the quality of the items in the packs declines and the ratio of filler items to premium items seems to get worse.

The packs are increasingly filled with generic designs (dancer outfits, jump suits, Hutball strips etc), recycled old crafted and comms gear with a few extras added (eg flashing bits), colour variations of gear from previous packs, dyes that aren't new colours just new combinations of old colours etc etc. And the handful of genuine new designs that are added often seem to be hastily thrown together with clipping or texturing issues.

Then they sprinkle in a handful of genuinely attractive items with a hideously low drop rate, sit back and laugh all the way to the bank as people keep throwing their money at these packs.

Players can spend their money how they like of course, it's their choice. But then don't expect anything to change for as long as you keep pumping money into these packs chasing after rare items.

Remember that the only voice you truly have is not complaining here, but by keeping your wallets and purses shut.

Exactly this.

To the OP...Let me just tell you: LOL!

The fact that you didn't sell those packs for credits so you could buy what you wanted off of the GTN makes me feel amazed that funny people like you exist.

On the upside, I think we just found out who is keeping BW in business.
