beta or release version?

nice mount, but we all know the mounts they release in future content patches will be much cooler, no reason to rage over CE capitalism by Bioware

 

Early beta didn't have at all. later beta did tho. So guessign will be same in release. *shrug* Can't confirm really.

For 1.5 mil I'd expect to have a speeder a friend can ride on with me.


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

1m credits buys a wristband to get past the bouncer and up the elevator to the VIP lounge, but it doesn't grant you access to the CE vendor. Nobody knows what thet vendor sells, since you couldn't access then during testing.

Ergo, those mounts (the one from that video and another one in another thread) were purchased somewhere else in-game.

Wait a second... so I pay 150 EURO (= 214 Dollar) for a CE AND THEN I have to pay 1.5 million credits ON TOP to get this?

WTF! You must be kidding me. I thought the CE shop was for real money, not millions of grinded ingame bucks!

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

No cash shop, CE only gets you access to the vendor.

The CE vendor is an Ithorian.

So a normal edition player can get an access pass to the VIP area and can buy stuff from vendors there apart from the special CE vendor, is this right?

 

From what I understand they only made the VIP lounge visitable for 1 million credits during the beta. Normal players won't have access after launch.

We want to make sure this is very clear: only Collector’s Edition owners will have access to the Collector’s Edition Store, which is listed officially as one of the benefits of the Collector’s Edition. There will be other ways to obtain access to the VIP lounge on the Fleets (one of which is spending a large amount of credits), but those players will NOT be granted access to the Collector’s Edition Store. We have not changed the offerings in the Collector’s Edition – they remain as they have been listed. We apologize for any confusion there may be regarding the topic, but we have not altered the official offerings in the Collector’s Edition in any way.

No cash shop, CE only gets you access to the vendor.

Pay 2 play, usually don't have item shops for real cash, and no one likes that anyway. To pay for your virtual fame, shouldn't u use your virtual money? HMM

 

"CE- GETS VIP MEMBERSHIP FREE, if alternative from beta stayed. possible to buy your membership for 1mil credits, Cannot confirm if kept, atm"

Also 1million credits is fairly easy to get.

 

and as post said above. VIP shop, has multiple vendors, their is a special CE only one up their. 

CE- get free VIP room membership, as well as having the CE vendor up their, other's must buy membership, to get up their, and can only access the other VIP vendors.

Meh, I had hoped for a cash shop. Real money is so much easier to get than ingame money! XD

The reflective surface of that thing was exceptionally cool.  You can see it real well when the camera pans underneath it. 

 

Heh .... I didn't think SWTOR had it in it.

Sorry, that was 2008. SOE started to sell stuff for real money in P2P games and the rest followed soon.

There are a few exceptions but they are usually small games like Vanguard where the devs havn't bothered to make the items to sell.

But yes, the P2P fee and the box sales should be more than enough, and at least I would be willing to pay a bit more fees to not get that crap. Items in a MMO should be based on luck, skill and time invested, not real world cash.

But sadly, that wont happen. In fact it seems to be getting worse but TOR is just one of the P2P games since this is standard bussiness today.

Lol, sorry Elikal, didn't mean to make you panic. I should have stated at the top of my post that I was only referring to access for folks who didn't have a CE. You won't need to grind a million credits - unless you want one of those speeders.

BTW, credits aren't *that* hard to come by, maybe a bit more these days since they nerfed slicing, but they had to do that since it was ridiculously OP for makng credits.

you do have a point...

Unfortunatly tho, it is happening where there is item shop even p2p. Such as WoW.

Which I think is wrong, its very sly, marketing tactics, which is quite sinister IMO.

making something that takes them less than a week to make, and sell for 10 to 25 dollars.

Ofc the consumer is the one that makes it happen because they want all the things to boast with, if they have the extra money to spare, as some do not.

 

IMO. Virtual items should only be bought with virtual currency.

Kind of funny how the CE people got a goldsink IRL and get another goldsink in game. Well at least they get something for that extra 90 dollars although it seems like that will be the exact same modal as something else that is purchased for less.

EA makes the decisions, not bioware, bioware is owned by EA now.

EA stated to investors on the last conference call that they have every intention of adding a cash shop as they are pure revenue generation and we as gamers have been shown to be nothing but disposable income.

Not to mention they said there will be a non stop flood of pay to buy DLC content.

 

So have your credit cards ready this is gonna be an expensive ride.

Link?  Eventually, you are going to need to prove the things that you say.  You've spouted this same line every single post and have never backed it up with anything resembling proof.  I'm calling BS.
