Pay EA your money to celebrate the holidays ingame. There might not be life day in the game but who needs that when you can buy life day items to celebrate in style! 

Can't say I'm shocked but it's hardly going to do them any favours.  They could at least announce a special FREE (for everyone none of that restrictions BS) ingame event and then once that starts, add the items to the cartel market.  Ofcourse, doing such a thing would just make too much sense to these decision makers. O well, pull up a chair, grab a beer and some popcorn and enjoy another week in life of the soap opera that has become the SWTOR community.

You can just buy anything from the Cartel Market with Ingame money, i dont see the problem here. And maybe is hard to believe but the money from the market is helping them to make new content for the game faster. And is cosmetic stuff anyway.

Adding new stuff to the Cartel Market isn't the problem, it's the manner in which they've done it.  They could have easily went about it in a more community friendly way by actually having an ingame event, promoting it and then selling cartel market stuff around that. But no, just add life day stuff for the sake of using the holidays to make quick money. It's a bit of a kick in the balls to hardcore Star Wars fans tbh. 

To be fair though, I don't really have a problem with it though personally.. hating on EA for using the holidays to nickel and dime their playerbase would be like hating on a dog for barking, it's just in their nature and who they are as a company.

Since when was EA a registered charity?

Your entitled to your "I want everythig for free" ideal but lets use a little common sense here, did you honestly believe that you would get free outfits when there is a cash shop, lets not forget EA isn't the only MMO out there with a cash shop.

As for a holiday event it's only the 11th of Dec, still time for them to squeeze one in, however Bah flippin Humbug I hate holiday events, nothing but fluff, however I know there are lots of you out there that love em, but I certainly won't be joining any events that see me end up with a singing snowman pet.

When has the Star Wars franchise been anything but nickel and diming?

My god with the constant rereleases of all the movies on VHS, DVD, Bluray and all the different formats Lucas has built this entire franchise off it!

First I thought this is a joke post, but it's actually true.

The "event" are some super expensive items from the cash shop. At least at the moment, perhaps they kick off something a week later or so.

Right now, no ingame rewards, no quests, no story, no nothing. 

Celebrate lifeday in the cash shop.

Goddamit bring back SWG, this new game is a tragedy..... :-/

Did you even read what I put? Or did you just decide to respond just so you get every fanboys favourite defense mechanicsm "entitlement" in? Not once did I ask for free stuff or even suggest they should do it.

We are getting content updates every 6 weeks, is probably the only MMO in the market doing that. If the Cartel Market help them to keep the 6 weeks updates, whats the problem?

  I played Tor for like 5 hours yesterday doing my dailes etc etc...I never even noticed the items for sale in teh CS.  While I can appreciate your oppinion on teh the items in the CS..I wasnt even aware they existed. 

  The only thing this trread has done is bring attention to them..and atleast in my case. When I go home tonight and log in..Guess what the first thing Im gonna look at is.

  IF you didnt like it, it might have been a good idea not to bring any attention to it..after all there is no such thing as bad publicity..and you did EA a favor by offering free advertisment.

And faster than Secret World with monthly issues?

 

Nope. Sorry, but for a sub game, SWTOR had a very weak year.

That's fine, I really don't mind. You are either completely misinterepting the point of this thread or trying to bait me, either way, if you want to spend $20 on these items, all the more power to you.

It's eawares new formular:

Be a douche, win money if people don't feel teabagged enough. = WIN
If they do, "listen to players" and revert some changes. = WIN

No one at eaware gives a flying star* about the actual sales currently, it's all about preparing the ground for the real cash grabs.

Yah, its an event without actual...you know...event lol.

Really would like to know which geniouses work at EA and let this kind of thing get out :)

But now it seems that when they announce event it means a new gambling pack in Cartel shop.

I'm aware of all the "give us more money we will give you more content" snake oil from playing warhammer.

Don't be suprised if your new content is
1 cash shop pets
2 cash shop mounts
3 an "expansion" where you pay for another 10 levels but don't actually get any new zones, quests or dungeons, but you have to buy it to stay on the gear curve.
4 the ability to dress up as chewbacca and jar jar binks.

A couple amusing aspects going on as well:

 

The FAQ http://www.swtor.com/free/features makes a big stink about how in-game event rewards can only be worn/used by purchasing an event license.  EA's workaround to their own crappy restrictions?  Don't do in-game events, put everything directly on the Cartel Market.

 

Scrupulous people on the SWTOR official forums are actually complaining about holidays saying they don't want them, and how they are soo offended by Christmas/Life Day lights being put on speeders.  Makes you wonder if these are real people or just shills trying to convince everyone that the former stagnation & mediocrity of content is really, really fun.

 

People blindly defending EA's greed, and (out of thin air, mind you) announcing that these sales will bolster future content!  Spending $300+ a year is so much better than spending a mere $150-$180 a year.  Then some on the official forums call those who don't spend on the Cartel Market, "cheap".  LOL.

 

But then again, I would expect no less, coming from certain fans / subscribers who call non paying players "freeloaders" ... in a game marketed as "F2P".  Soap Opera, indeed!

"Hey folks!

While we're definitely excited about the new Life Day items in the Cartel Market, I wanted to make sure that you all knew that we do not have an in-game event planned for this. However, this doesn't mean that we don't have any in-game events planned for the future! We'll have more information for you sometime after the holidays.

Thank you!
"

 

ha ha ha ha. man, you advertise an event and then you have to put disclaimer like this.

I now start to wonder what Ilum "event" will look like lol

Actually, even worse than over-priced festive items, they've even essentially added pay to win space mission items. Sure you can grind them out forever or spend silly amounts on the GTN, but you can now essentially buy space ship epics for real money. Took EA less than a month to introduce p2w stuff, I really shouldn't be surprised.
