Dammit is it that bad? Saw only negative feedback in the PTS forums.
And I was so excited....

They created housing free of any fun. You have to respect this achievement by BioWare. Any other person would have tried to make housing fun.

Quote of the week! So freaking true. They couldn't have screwed it up any more - everything from hooks to the costs to the unlocks...crazy.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

This isn't entirely true. Crafters' houses will have greater utility b/c of their ability to craft the little items you need to buy utility consoles.

I, for my part, am fine with getting a house for my barbie!

What is the point of raiding?

What is the point of PvP?

What is the point of denigrating content that someone else enjoys, even if you don't?

We're all wasting time here. If some choose to waste it in a different way than you, that doesn't make your way any less pointless.

Yea it's kind of a ridiculous argument, as that's exactly what Cartel Packs are. I have to imagine if they didn't net them significant money from the CM, they wouldn't be developing them and putting them out at such regular intervals.

Some people like that stuff, and that's okay. For me, it'll probably be another feature I don't use.
