I love it so far. I want to see this game succeed and I have the money so I don't mind spending a little more if I can get some cool stuff and it helps pay some developers salary. Besides, the more I stay home and play this game, the less likely I am to go out and blow money at some restaraunt. I spent $160 to add 22k CC to my initial amount and have unlocked all the global legacy stuff for my ship, full rocket boots. legacy travel to my ship and Daily hubs. I also unlocked the charater specific perks for my 3 Operations-level toons. I bought 2 or 3 sets of armor and spent the rest on Cartel packs:
On the Cartel packs I have received:
1- Overlord's Throne mount (On gtn)
1- Mask of Nihilus
2- Tythonian lightsabers (Already sold 1 for 1.2 Million credits)
1- White indestructible crystal (+41 endurance- on GTN, selling for 4 million)
5- Pink/ purple crystals (War Hero, Endurance, Power)
1- Carbine for my Operative (Very cool)
2+ full sets of each: Loungewear, Spymaster, trailblazer
10+- Assorted Pets (Horanth, probe, lizardbats, virbrl)
5-6 of each emote( intimidate, menace)
10- Glowing eyes (Red and gold)
14 - assorted mounts (5 Ubrikki Sand Demon, 3 Crimson Claw, 3- Longspur Elite, 3- Ren Night shade)
Plus, Tons of epic mats, XP boosts, etc for my alts.
I still have about 4k CC left. All-in-all, I am very happy with it so far and it is helping me buy stuff I needed (27 level barrel for my BH) and made my overall experience a lot more enjoyable. I plan on sittng down and figuring out how much it would have cost me to unlock everything with credits to compare, but I was having too much fun this weekend.
