Actually the chestplate isn't too bad for dyes, the texture is really weird though. Looks like fake or swollen alligator leather kinda.

The pants are weird but pants are always weird in this game.

I like the Bold Hellion armour. It's no Exposed Extrovert but it's nice to get a revealing piece of armour every few months. And the Alliance Emissary's set is beautiful.

I was looking forward to the Imperial Admiral's set but it looks kind of meh on female characters. And even worse, it dyes poorly. :/

I know that hairstyles 19 and 21 had a slightly bouncy ponytail when I first started playing, though now I can't see it unless I zoom in a lot so I don't know what happened there. 22 and 23 still wiggle though, I know that's been a thing since at least GSH if not longer.

Also capes and coats have always moved as far as I know except in the preview screen. Not on mounts but that was added during or after Shadow of Revan I think. I don't think anything else moves except for twi'lek lekku.

As for clipping, it rarely bothers me. You're never going to be able to fix all of them and 99% are so minor (or even helpful) that it doesn't matter anyway.

Hair has been moving for at least two years tho, at least with some female hairstyles. Also why can't my nexu wear hats too?

I don't see why MMOs can't support their servers the same way that other genres with similar amounts of players do. Which is by, you know, selling the game. And expansions or DLC if there are any. And merchandise if it's popular enough for that. And by treating your customers like actual people so they want to support your company, though I admit that one is pretty unlikely these days.

If microtransactions are absolutely essential then at the very least they should be without RNG and obtainable through other means in-game. Company of Heroes 2 on release was a decent example, you could easily get everything from just playing the game but that doesn't mean people didn't buy skins anyway.

So basically Bioware should make a WWII game to get money.

Great news for some of the world! Here in the US though they'll probably just bribe lobby against anything like that. And probably in a lot of other countries too.

I know Guild Wars 2 has players in China so seeing what Anet does there could be a good way to see how things improve.

It'd also give transparency as to how many of those boxes have sold, and video game companies, well, they don't like that kind of transparency, and they REALLY don't like building out game systems that weren't part of the original plan.

I don't see why we should care if they like it or not. It wouldn't be necessary if video game companies weren't screwing people over in the first place. I agree that it's pretty excessive but honestly it wouldn't work at all otherwise.

2: It will probably discourage some players from spending money in-game on those boxes. Harassment can be bad enough in games, imagine someone getting spammed with messages for being a P2W SOB?

If it discourages buying microtransactions, good. It's a horrendous practice that needs to die whether the stuff provides benefits or not.

As for harassment, that unfortunately already happens in lots of games. Especially the ones which actually are P2W and the microtransactions aren't just cosmetic. Hell, the opposite happens constantly in SWTOR. People are assholes and there's not much that can be done to fix it.

Well that's far more than I have but it's good to know there are still some out there. Thanks for keeping an eye out!

I usually don't use Zakuul decorations because their tech doesn't match my Imperial aesthetic but I like that fountain a lot.

Also the anniversary collage thing that they're doing seems interesting, I might send a picture from spooky planet #1.

I used to watch the GTN like a hawk on two different servers and i've still never seen a single piece of most direct purchase armour sets (Clandestine Officer, etc).  It took me a full year to obtain the Malevolent Interrogator set because nobody sells it on Jedi Covenant or Begeren Colony! And that was long before the game's population started dropping.

Plus I would ask people if there was anything I particularly wanted. In fact, I put up a post semi-recently looking for a Secret Agent's jacket because I haven't seen one for sale before. I still haven't found one though, I guess it's too late since the pack came out a few months ago already. :/

Also @Imazi this might not help if your credits are in escrow already but you can bypass the limit with a private guild bank and a subscribed friend. Get them to send you a CoD mail to deposit and ask them to buy anything that's over 350k using the bank funds. It's like having your own personal GTN broker!

If they want money, they should make their game good enough that people will pay for it.

Also the 5th anniversary stuff starts on the 13th! There are some nice poster decorations and hopefully the vendor from previous years will be up again too. http://www.swtor.com/swtor5/rewards

I think it's going to alienate people either way. Both systems are honestly terrible, the armour should be available through in-game content or currency imo instead of microtransactions.

So what if every other MMO does it? They all have better fashion systems so it's less of a ripoff to buy overpriced cosmetics compared to SWTOR where you can use the skins exactly once without paying even more cartel coins.

Plus even the rarest items in packs are still way cheaper than direct purchase armour, especially since nobody ever sells them. When was the last time you saw a bowcaster on the GTN? Or all the nice class armour sets? Or even the decoration essential bundles? I didn't even see bowcasters when they were on sale for 50 coins like a year ago, let alone any other time. Zakuul Knight armour is the only one i've ever seen and it was maybe 15 million per part when I looked.

I still prefer RNG because there's at least a chance, however tiny, of me getting something decent. Meanwhile with the direct purchase stuff my chance is 0 because I will never have 1400 cartel coins to spend.

Is there a reason why they can't put them in packs and on the market?

And that trash bin is weird looking.

Honestly I prefer RNG over direct purchase in this game, mostly because the direct purchase stuff is ridiculously overpriced. It's really unlikely that non-subs will ever get 1400 cartel coins and that's a hilariously high price for currency you can't get without paying anyway. So pricing stuff that high means very few people will get it, the ones who do won't sell it because it was so much, and if they do sell it for some reason then it'll be for millions of credits. Or in other words it may as well be unobtainable.

I am hyped for the trash bin though.

Welcome back! I'm imp-side almost exclusively, I don't really know of any guilds that are still alive tho. My characters are somewhat limited to military and Sith stuff too but if either of those interest you then let me know!
