Love this thread. Well to add to the humor here I just cleaned out all of the level 450 investigation missions on my server, ALL of them, all 30 that were listed. For some unknown reason they were all selling on the gtn for 8,000 max. With strongholds i will easily make that back. I also cleaned out all of the 6 and 9 purple cloth at rock bottom prices. I do not think it has really hit my server yet how much you will need to craft stuff.


To the OP I feel your pain I bought a mount a while back for 2 million that I saw after buying it was listed by somebody else for 400K.

Repeated occurrences have now instituted the: 'never use the GTN while drunk rule' that I try to adhere to.
Drunk time is PvP time.

Since I was just buying in bulk and not really looking at the prices (since regular pricing usually isn't a problem for me) I just pressed the "sort by individual item price" button, but must have pressed it twice so it sorted highest first. I was surprised when suddenly the game told me I couldn't afford to buy more items...
I had 6+ million credits when I looked up Beryllius on the GTN, so I must have bought 4-5 of his super-overpriced Beryllius mats before the game told me I couldn't afford more.

Moral of the story here kids, is; Don't buy anything off the GTN at 2 am when you're dead tired

Oh well, back to grinding dailies
Sorry to hear that, even I don't wish that on you

Oh well, nothing to be done about it now. Not like I can contact CS and ask for my money back :P
And I doubt I'd get the money back if I contacted the seller either.
Maybe it was someone who was trying to transfer credits from the Republic side to the Imperial one.
Without knowing he could've just mailed them.
Or it was simply someone who was hoping he'd get lucky when someone missclicked lol, in which case you really made his day!

Sorry to hear that though, that's a really sucky way to go broke. But at least you'll always have a fun story to tell!

Yep, it's just "delete" on this one.
Also, always be very careful when selecting the next character if you're deleting more than one. I know the "character selector" was fighting me all the way when I was trying to delete a ton of placeholders back during the server merge days. I accidentally nuked one I meant to keep and had to wait painfully long to get it restored.

By not paying close attention to which character was selected when I typed delete.
You don't have to type the character's name, only the word delete.

That's why I've always been an advocate of changing the system so that you had to type the character's name as part of the deletion process.

To add to the injury, this was back before they were able to restore characters so it took 3 weeks to get it back.

Ever since then I'm always extra cautious when doing anything like spending money when I'm tired.
In that case, customer service can restore it if you ask them to...

edit: sorry, just saw your later post saying you got it back...

Thank you for the kind offer, but like I keep saying in plenty of threads around here, money is easy to come by in this game
