    wow 40 bucks for the light saber

    • AbnerDoon

      Don’t forget the 400 to 600CC to unlock it for your alts. :p

      • Edward Asencios

        that’s right, forgot about that

  • LucasFaun

    thats some expensive fucking pixels.

    • Resub to swtor

      We can all afford them. Let’s resub.

  • AbnerDoon

    I was really looking forward to the new pack and the silver force armor set. But 1100CC plus unlock costs I am going to have to pass for now. I doubt it’s going to be on the GTN for a reasonable price anytime soon either.

    I am glad they are putting stuff up for direct sale as the whole new pack is 100% RNG. But the prices plus the unlock costs plus saying that this is a damn event.

    • wow wow wow > swtor

      just let the game die please

      • Little Flame

        If you want it to die out, fine by me. Stop playing it and stop paying attention to it.

        There are still people out there who want it to live, even though this move is similar to putting it on life support. I hope I’m wrong but.. well. its EA. For all we know this could just be to make up for their battlefront fiasco. They said they still had plans into 2019 so it’ll hopefully survive until then at least.

        Either way, if this game dies, the last Star Wars mmo will be gone. With likely none to take its place. Or some shitty feminist bs set in the post gcw era. So if it dies, I hope they’ll manage to put up an emulator of sorts like they have done with Clone Wars Adventures so we can still play it ._.

  • Dr. Mike Wendell

    One thing I’m wondering about the pricing is if they’re looking at how many coins people have. I know I’ve hoarded about 11k over the last few months and I don’t recall having spent any in well over a year.

    I’m wondering if they’re pricing the item as such as a coin sink.

  • John Kosto

    Anyone who pays $40 (and that’s on the cheapest rate at which you can buy CC, otherwise even more, possibly more than $50) for this lightsaber, is the definition of a victim, whether they can afford it or not. Disgusting…

    • 110% True.. :/ Good Words! 🙂 #BitchSlapKingKeithLeadDesigner #UseRazorToBenIrvingsFaceWhenHeSleeps

  • Fortissimus

    We should swallow our pride and continue giving our money to SWTOR… we have a civic duty as Star Wars fans to keep paying for it no matter how bad it gets…

    • gua543

      5 years ago I would have dismissed this as sarcasm. But today, I’m not so sure.

      • Fortissimus

        Definitely sarcasm… lol 😂

    • Darth Gnaw

      You’re definitely swallowing SOMETHING, but I’m not so sure that it’s pride :O

  • Djangus Roundstone

    I stopped playing about a month after Kotet, and I keep checking this site to see if they’ve done anything to improve the game but it keeps getting worse and it’s making me sad cause I really like this game and I just want it to do better.

    • Hear ye, swtor is dead!!

      it’s over man. This game is dead. Like michael jackson, 2pac and that famous singer who died while on the toilet.

      • Mark Fair

        The game is not dead,please keep those thoughts to yourself.

        • Rance

          SJW detected.

          • Mark Fair

            Ya fella I have no idea what you mean nor do I care,if you think the game is dead don’t play it, but no one wants to hear your negative comments and if you think it’s dead why are you here🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

            • Rance

              Just here for the lulz.

            • Drivan

              Oh, it’s over, they just haven’t pulled the plug yet. They are trying to squeeze as much money out of their faithful as they possibly can.

              • Mark Fair

                That’s why they just confirmed another expansion….not over,not by a long shot.

              • Drivan

                Just came from the official forums and there is no mention of an expansion. There is mention of UPDATE 6.0, but no expansion. As a matter of fact Keith doesn’t confirm anything past the details of 5.9.
                Everything past April is vague.

              • Mark Fair

                Go to swtorista’s YouTube channel

              • Mark Fair

                As I said check SWORISTA and you will see.

    • Fortissimus

      You seem to check the wrong site mostly… Dulfy chat is kinda toxic…mostly players who have quit and profess their hate for the devs on a regular basis…TORcommunity is a little better and typically quicker on dev posts

      • Guest

        Guess we all know where youre from lol

      • abini

        Agree the posters here always sing the same miserable tune.

        • Naturally Cause Swtor Been On That Same Miserable Tune For 1,5+ Years Now.. Take Care. #WaitingForSubWorthyNews

        • Drivan

          The truth? Yes, the truth about SWTOR is, currently, miserable.

      • Éamon McCraith

        Can it be that there have been no updates on TORC since end of February???

      • Djangus Roundstone

        Oh was it the commenters here that are posting the updates to the game or dulfy? I’m not here for chat dude.

  • Farlas816

    What a whole bunch of bullshit

  • Kubrickian

    And then one day the last two cartel whales faced off on an empty Imperial fleet hub. Each one decked to the nines in $70+ cartel pack fashion in each slot. Shuffling through outfits and mounts until exhausted they retired back into their strongholds to admire plaques and furniture they acquired half a decade ago. The EnD…….

  • John Kosto

    Initially I was wondering why the change to the Packs system, but I finally realized why they made the new Ultimate Pack like this, and it’s not random that this change comes with the increase of Direct Sales.

    Let’s say that I have 5400 CC and I buy a hypercrate, with 30 of those packs. If the structure of those was as it always used to be (you know, a NEW pack actually containing NEW items), then with 30 of those it would be pretty much guaranteed that I would get almost every single item in this pack, perhaps with the exception of the Platinum rarity ones. And the stuff that I would actually get more than once, I could sell them on the GTN and make a nice profit in credits.

    Also, if you don’t have the Cartel Coins, you could always farm in-game credits and play with the GTN, and purchase pretty much almost all of the items of a pack (except from the platinum ones, again) for a total of somewhere between 5-10 million credits on the GTN (like I always do)

    Now, with the new system, if one wanted to get almost every item in this pack, they would have to spend a total of more than 10000 CC, and that number goes up to more than 15000-20000 CC if you add the rare items in it.

    Plus, it will most probably make the option of buying the items on the GTN obsolete or better only a viable option for those with hundreds and hundreds of millions of credits, since now the new items will have a much smaller probability to drop from the “new” pack, which means that people will be forced to buy them as a direct sale, if they actually want to get their hands on it, or pay a shitload of credits on the GTN.

    They have been trying to push people into spending more real money to buy CC for years now. Remember the fiasco with the direct sales of lightsabers at 7000 CC? Or the whole mess with changing the rarity of items and removing bronze items, only to bring them back and make them sound better than they are? Every single change in the Cartel Market is one more effort to grab money, while at the same time they progressively produce less content of lesser quality.

    This is absolutely disgusting. They are desperate and pathetic, it feels over the top even for the SWTOR team to pull something like this. And then present it as “you wanted direct sales, so here’s direct sales”. No one wanted direct sales of every overpriced item you idiots. No one applauds having to spend $100 each time you release a “new” pack of rehashed and repainted ugly items.

    • White Knight

      You have enough money to pay internet bills. You should resub to the game. Support swtor to the end.

    • Fred Garvin

      [OP is Fred G]

      I don’t see how any of this CM setup is attractive to anyone. Especially since so little can be earned in game.

      I recently bought a fancy helm to top off an outfit for my warrior in WoW. It’s one of only 3 cosmetic pieces of armor available for purchase in Blizzard’s shop and I didn’t even use real money. I made the purchase by converting about two week’s worth of my in-game gold to account credit. I even purchased the last Hearthstone expansion using WoW gold.

      Making more items direct purchase is ok I guess as at least you know exactly what you’re getting but it’s a shame the vast majority of items cannot be earned doing activities out in the world while exploring new content.

      • AbnerDoon

        I did the same in GW2 to pick up the last Inquest outfit. I don’t play enough anymore to be rolling in money. But I looked at what I had saved up and decided it was worth converting instead of spending real cash.

        It was worth it even though I broke my bank for a bit. Between the outfit and a couple weapon skins I was tapped out. But I was happy and my wallet never had to open.

        Even more amazing every single one of those items opened for all my characters. No added fees on top of purchasing the items even the outfit from their own store.

      • Jay Asher

        the packs aren’t sopposed to look attractive, that’s how they lure ya into the direct sales. When the packs only offer 3 grand chance cubes and a piece of crap, people would rather direct buy then know their throwing away money with very little chance of return.

  • “Keith”

    I’m gonna make EA rich with my awesome ideas, gonna be promoted SOON!! bahaha

    • SWTOR WHITE KNIGHT

      Thank you for keeping the game active and well populated. Ben Irving took the game in the right direction but he decides to seek other ventures. But you have made the game even better. Thank you Keith. Our metrics say the game has never been better.

      • “Keith”

        Thank you, THANK YOU!! and keep subbing!

      • Haha well said ;D *Laughters & Rolling on the Floor holding Poor Belly* x)

  • James Ohlen

    I started on Lord Calypho. Made a guild, became a top 3 guild in progression. Those wipes at SOA from bugs were the shizz. After a while, the server just died. People said it was fine but when your guild had the whole republic fleet something was wrong. BioWare refused to help us, we had to make a thread on the forums and they finally did after dozens of pages. We moved to Tomb of Freedon Nadd.

    On NADD, you thought the game was flourishing. It had 5 fleets on rep side at 4 am and you had pops every few seconds. Group chat was full with LFG, LFM. We said, okay game here can be played but content was scarce. Then the inevitable happened and Nadd Died. Similar to last time , people said game is fine, the server is to blame. So after again talking to BW they gave us the 70 -90 cc transfers. We moved to the Red Eclipse.

    On the Red Eclipse things were no different. Population was declining at a very high rate and content was non existent. There is only so much you can take after you get fed up with the same missions over and over.

    One by one we saw our progression teams destroyed. People left for greener pastures. They could not grind things over and over for the same bosses.

    Today marks 2 years since I stopped playing and more importantly paying a sub. I come to dulfy to see how things are every now and then. It seems its same old same old. Barely any content yet people say the game is fine.

    This game needs to be shutdown because it has become a front to fund other games while giving the existing player base empty promises.

    • fubarz

      This game was doomed from 10/2007 when EA bought out BioWare. And it will shut down soon enough, do to it’s not making the evil empire of EA money…. But I will say it’s up to the player if they want to still play (sub) the game and they still enjoy the game as is. It is their money and time to use how they want…. People vote with their money on the game if enough walk to make it non profiting or zero return to fund other games it dies…along with EA if enough players do the same to all EA games.

    • Monkey face offended

      Game is going nowhere because 1 thing: lightsabers

      • Indeed.. Sad F’ing True Fact about Fragile Minded / Easily Gullible Human Mind.. :/ Today’s Kids completely lack the understanding for Money’s Value.. Unfortunately same applies for many 20-40y old Cola Drinkers who drool for Companion Romances at their Strongholds.. Sad that companies can Exploit this Sad Fact & No one can do anything about it :/

  • Alexander Delorean

    nice only 5.500 cc for my companion’s saber

    • swtor is so dead, very dead

      what a steal! You should buy 40.

  • Magnus Rolstad Jordal

    And so came SWTOR to the end. 🙁

  • Disqus this

    A $50-$55 single in game digital purchase? WTF!

    Over 3 months worth of a subscription price in just one item that you have to pay even more to unlock if you want to use it on other characters.

    For the love of all thats right and good in gaming I can only hope gamers are not buying in to this garbage.

    • Eban

      Sadly the cartel whales will buy it.
      It’s what’s keeping this corpse twitching, stupid people spending stupid amounts of money of dress up items rather than demanding content for their money.
      EA fucking love them.

    • Jay Asher

      I did an FP with a guy who had the new knock off cross guard. Even he had regrets after getting it.

  • Guest

    Come you are first world gamers bois you should be able to buy the ENTIRE CM store don’t be cheap!. Show EA the money!

  • Yeah I’m going with the Electrosaber. No thanks.

      With where he grips those sabers he should be getting his hands sliced off…

      • Indeed, but but buuuut it’s Swtor’s Eaware crew doing their so fineee Animations with Outdated & Glitchy Game-Engine.. Still in 2018.. :/ Sigh..

    • AbnerDoon

      Man the sound is just awful for that when attacking.

      • Darth Twinge

        Yep. I have the unstable peacemaker, which has that same soundset, and the ignition noise always feels lackluster somehow compared to more traditional noises.

      Booring…

      • fubarz

        Booring it might be. Till green turns to red changes at EA might never happen….So booring it is

    • Drivan

      GAmes used to be great, then EA came along and started gobbling up little developers just so they could make short term profits. I’d just rather have great games even If I had to wait a few years between installments.

      • Arthur

        Don’t get me wrong, EA back in the day made some great games themselves. It’s just that the industry has turned into what we have now. It’s a dog eat dog world.

  • Drivan

    No single item in the cartel market is worth $50.
    Their cash grab is getting so obvious that they should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Shawn Hargrave

    you guys need to see ready player one its about ea fighting the gaming community lol its really good it says it all about why games suck so much now a days

  • Jep Fareborn

    As of now, Dulfy still hasn’t made a headline regarding the Nico and Shae companions becoming available to all premium subs…white knight uproar everywhere about it (the companions, I mean). lol

    • Because it’s Prob. early April Fools post. Though wouldn’t surprise me if Swtor’s Eaware crew be Dumb Enough to forget the Exclusive part & lure In More Gullible Sheepies. Those who are Dumb enough to pay 13€ for Npc that barely has any Dialogue & don’t have Backstory & Story Conversations etc. *360 Eye Roll*

  • ConcernedGuest

    None of you is getting a real new companion … only one more skin of a base generic whatsoever that can be set for tank, dd or healer stance with this or that unique animation. Thats all.
    It does not matter at all if you take Niko, or the Wookie, or one of the droids, or one of the stupid animals for running around doing heroics or using as backup after a disconnect in a FP … they are all the same.

    ITS ALL THE SAME!
    If there would be at least some companions beeing only tanks (even if they still don’t have any shield values on them because of a missing offhand) or only DDs or only Healers.

    Even worse … Niko Okarr as healer? Hey folks, this guy is a gunslinging smuggler blasting his way to glory und riches, not someone staying in the back healing peoples … using this SKIN for healing is just destroying the whole background.

    And honestly …why has this become such a childish game? Pets ? Running around? Pissing in every corner? Needed to be feed? Has anyone every seen anyone running around in any of the star wars movies with a “companion pet”?
    But no one seems to care anymore , to remember anymore, what this game proposed and promised before it’s release and how it was driven against the wall since 3.0.

    Rishi started so nice, so encourageing … until I got to the first subquest questgiver . No dialog, just an ordinary quest terminal in apperance of a living being. And the disappointment continued since then.

    Being on this webpage the first time in march. Haven’t even logged into the game since 3 or 4 weeks.

    It has all become so dull and disappointing.

    • Shawn Hargrave

      Nope they are not thesam Vizla is a better companions regarding her duties comparted to Treek who is broken. I LOVE SWTOR!

    • Paulo Gomes

      Actually, they’re not ALL the same. Treek and HK-51 are a couple of notches WORSE than the rest since 4.0…

  • LucasFaun

    can one outfit nico? like shea.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Not currently.
