You even said in one of your posts that you guys were looking at the contents of the crates... and yet nothing.

It has been explained many times how the RNG nature and terrible drop rates of the crates is the core problem which causes all the others. Why are the devs willfully ignoring this fact?

Thanks for the info Eric - what is happening with the weekly CXP cap in light of these changes?

They heard it. They did not listen. When the Devs tell you how exciting RNG is with a straight face, there is no way they will change it.

Honestly, I will lay a bet that person who came up with Galactic Command has their career on the line for it. They will not admit that it is terrible and will not change the RNG.

I am almost happy that they developed it though. I was having a lot of trouble admitting to myself that SWTOR and I needed to part ways. Galactic Command made it much easier to say goodbye by killing my remaining joy in the game and forcing me to watch my guild members move to other games.

Sorry, this does nothing to fix the underlying problem.

If you can go 40+ boxes opened with no useful pieces, as many of us have, whether those boxes come in 10 or 5 hours makes no difference. It still sucks either way and actively discourages people from playing.

Also, please remember that you are talking to SUBSCRIBERS that pay a monthly fee. Including additional paid boosts in all your calculations as if we are expected to pay even more every month to fix your problem is downright insulting.

I'm not an idiot, don't try and take me for one. In fact, that attitude of implicit deceit is worse than the system itself.

Ok, so what about adding in the unassembled components to the pve activities in the command screen as well? Why was this part skipped over when so many have asked why they remain restricted to pvp and ops only?

I'm curious...how does a player get new boxes once they hit 300? Do you still get them?
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

- that hard keep getting Unassembled Components with Command Tokens and just get piece of gear what you want from vendor? Guess .. yes. RNG is only helping matter.

This news does not make me excited. I guess these changes to GC make a for me completely broken system playable. I would probably not have unsubbed or uninstalled if GC started out like that. Not sure yet if it's enough to get me back.
