Over the last day or so I watched the fallout over the Barriss change in particular. And frankly some of the stuff I have been reading is very shocking..
The devs won't put a figure out there as there will be legal consequences of such action... But I'm gonna ask people a few questions...
1. How much do they think this game costs to make?
2. How much do you think it costs to maintain the servers?
3. How much do you think it costs to keep adding content to this game?
4. HOw much do you think Disney Charges EA for the Star Wars License to produce this game?
I doubt anyone can give an exact figure here who is not associated with or working for EA, but I'm pretty sure the answer to any of the questions above isn't nothing.
So who pays for this game? If no one pays for this game's maintance and development, do you think you have a game to play?
So before any of you start attacking those that have spent a bit of money on this game no matter how little or how much, you should be thankful because they are the ones paying for this game so that you can actually play it.
The issue of a refund over the Barriss pack should not be taken likely by anyone. The moment this game is in the red, trust me it will have the plug pulled. Then maybe you realise it wasn't such a great idea to alienate the guys that probably spent hundreds or several thousands on the game.
End of the day this game is a business to EA and their investors. When it doesn't make money it gets canned. There is no such thing as a free to play game especially when it comes to any computer game, someone ends up paying somehow somewhere.
I do know about anyone else, but if you spent some money, no matter how little or how much on this game no matter what it was for, crystals, packs or character packs...
A sincere thank you.

Game used to be fun when it wasn't a grind... if I wanted a grind I would have went and played old school Everquest or some Korean MMO!
