So much anger...
So much anger...
^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".
"Victory? No. Begun, the flamewar has."
paying for cartel coins with real money doesn't make the game itself a hobbie just saying and as I stated in my previous post IMO thats my opinion
Are people jealous?
I wish the market was bit more appealing though, more vanity items please and UNIQUE ones...

But you are supporting this feature so dont expect to get much more than more vanity items hidden behind random luck of spending real money. This way Bioware are earning much more money than by actually selling vanity stuff in their shop. Some ppl are still so naive that they dont realise it and just because they desided to spend money - they have to defend themselfs instead of seeing the bloody obvious that this has nothing to do with the game in any way. Other than ofc destroy a perfectly great stories that should be the ways of gaining those items.

Some of it is genuine concern for the well-being of their fellow gamer;
Some of it is a disgust of all things TOR;
Some of it is all of the above
I personally think that this subject is a non-issue. The items in the packs are fluff. If people wish to gamble for fluff then let them, I say. Harmless fun imo.
What is beyond my understanding is how incredably naive and blind ppl are to what is actually going on. Like there are not bet sites and poker sites that offer first 10 dollars free to get ppl hooked ? Free cartel coins to throw at stuff? lol....
Random is never in the favor of the player. Its there for a reason. And if subscribers and fans of SWTOR really think this is in any way good feature to have.. then just wait next few months when more packs will become the way to make subscribers spend alot of extra money. Cause thats exactly how this works.
To think this is a good feature ... oh ye... lets go back to the op post....
Gratz...WHY OH WHY did Bioware make Cartel Packs so damn addicting! I am struggling so hard to resist buying more coins just so I can get more packs..
Your post doesn't deserve a slot in my thread! But it would make the perfect coaster for my drink!
Bioware added some fluff items as rewards to the Terror from Beyond raid. They added some fluff items as rewards to yesterday's NM EC raid. They will continue to add fluff ingame regardless of the fluff they add via the cartel bags. The difference is that aslong as the meaningful stuff (NON FLUFF) is added solely via ingame mechanics I and many others don't care about the few fluff items being added to the cartel packs.
Well, hopefully the added income from the Cartel Market equals a better future for the game. And that is something I have no problem with (I don't play btw, waiting for BioWare to show some goodwill).
To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
i had like 1600 or so cartel coins when i logged in the other day and i used them all on the more expensive box, the one with 5 items instead of 3. i got some really cool shit and ended up buying like another 1650 coins and was planning on saving it for a nice adative gear set once i hit 31 on my consular since i can get the hockey mask looking sith set. unfortunately i ended up buying more crates.
it is very addictive and im glad theyve got a decent system in place to continue to fund the game. i enjoy it and it appears lots of other people enjoy it. it may not have an impressive sub number but those numbers mean little to me if im enjoying the game. i think the people who are bad mouthing swtor are just doing it to be assholes. theres really no reason to come into a thread and bash a game you dont like. just my opinion
