No outrage about the vendor rep items?

So people are outraged that guild ships are 50 mil despite it being pretty easy for a guild to scrape that together.
And they are outraged because the cost to unlock all 5 tabs in the legacy bank is 50 mil even tho they don't really need the tabs.

But nobody cares that you'll have to buy at least one hypercrate, but most likely more, of the new cartel packs to get to the unique models sold by the pack reputation vendor?
That's at least 7000 cc or 11-12 million credits just to be allowed to ship for those items.

And nobody is upset?

Really?

not the first time vendors had unique models.

and gear model has nothing to do with convenience features. its just gear. kinda like Revan's belt and bracers. cosmetic only.

No. There are already cartel reputation vendors, using currency based on opening cartel packs, with one or more exclusive items and the rest recolors. If you don't want to spend cash on cartel coins, you can buy the hypercrates with credits. If you don't do either, you don't get the items. I don't see where the outrage comes in?

who cares? You don't need those rep vendor items? Amirite? Looks like a reasonable rate to me. Like how legacy bays are 5.26 times as much as normal cargo bays that you can only have 5 of. Completely reasonable rate. Stop qqing baby.

To be entirely honest, one of my gripes about Cartel items is that they're readily available and overabundant. There's nothing special or unique (in my mind) about riding a cool lizard when everyone has the exact same one you do.

So when they gate it behind rep, on one hand, I'm irked 'cause I have to spend many more credits to unlock them. But on the other hand, fewer people will have the cool items, which makes them rarer and (in my mind) cooler.

So I guess the moral of my story is that you can't have your cake and eat it too.

No, the moral of the story is that most people think e-x-a-c-t-l-y like you do, thus the items that require a certain amount of Rep are more appealing. And Bioware knows that.
The same way a lot of other things that were not necessarily iconic or even "cool-looking" were highly sought-after.

Maybe the forum has finally reached an outrage tipping point. Lol, I wish. That will never happen. If only outrage could be used as fuel.

Hmm, I guess that's true. Is that your perspective as well?

I'm a little bothered by it (more than I am by the Guild Ship price at any rate), but:

A) We don't have a full list of the packs, yet, so we don't know for sure which ones, if any, really are unique models.

B) Since the very first CM Reputation, there have been some unique items in them.
