I guess that makes sense. I hope we do get more neat things to spend credits on, like decorations or outfits.

And apparently I could buy a phone with all of my SWTOR money lol.

Or hopefully the return of heavier fees for respeccing, repairing, etc.

And yeah, MMO gold selling is a lot bigger than people think.  In Venezuela, many people play OldSchool Runescape as a job and sell their gold each week so that they can eat.  A typical day of farming gold in that game earns more money than most anything else they can do in their current economic crisis.

Big CM release coming in tomorrow.

New Items
Been looking to get the new Dark Honor Guard’s Unstable Saber (it’s amazing) since the launch of Game Update 5.8 ‘Command Authority’? Well that saber along with all the new 5.8 Cartel Market items will be available for direct sale starting tomorrow, March 27th!

...

Cartel Market Limited Time Sale
From Tuesday, April 3rd through Tuesday, April 17th almost every Cartel Market item will be available for direct sale! Maybe there is an item you have been waiting to see in our weekly sales, or, you just don’t want to throw the credits at it on the GTN. This will give you an opportunity to scoop that item up.

Looks like they are fishing. I figure they are testing the waters to see how many people bite and how much they can get away with. If the number are high enough the sale may come back. *goes to check her bank account.* :shifty:

Suspect instead they're trying to find a solution for people complaining about the boxes and people selling armors on the GTN for 50mil per piece. They've been talking about solutions for that for a while. Doesn't mean they aren't... also... fishing. But I'd imagine there's more at work than just that.

Still, that's exciting! Having the option to direct buy is pretty welcome. Guess we'll see what the prices are like.
The Jedi: Bren (Archaeologist), Iirim (Healer), Zorru (Recruiter), Orans (Master), Aybekk (Padawan)
The Politicians: Varooth (Senator), Seirion (Aide/Spy), Ayrak (King)
The Mandos: Urziya (Rallymaster), Terr (Chieftain)
The Outlaws: Telen (Slicer), Majia (Pirate/Smuggler)
The Imperials: Athuuna (Agent), Zhekrazh (Lord), Z'ridia (Apprentice)

Excited for $50 Platinum weapons and mounts, $40 Gold armors, $20 Silver armor and mounts, and $10 minimum for an emote that lets you crap your pants on command.

Prove me wrong, BioWare.

Would you settle for an Emote that allows T7 to make Astromech farting noises? (0:30)
I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Cash grab, I think. But also a good way to train us out of the lootbox. They're probably testing a new monetary model because lootboxes have been (rightfully) getting all kinds of flak.

.... not that it matters as long as I get my pretty hats. And robes. Oh, shit I can do up my hair? Woaaaah
Heads up! Most of my roleplay is done over Discord!
