FIVE YEAR$ for a $tronghold Deco




I always look forward to the SWTOR Anniversary.  I have my fireworks, toys, and decorations from EVERY YEAR so far... because no matter what's going on in my life... I always try to sub around holiday/anniversary time.



What do we get this year?


  • "Celebration Jawa" (rehash of the Party Jawa, with crappier balloons)
  • "Senya Holostatue" (rehash of the Dr. Oggurobb trainer)
  • "7 Piece Poster Collection" (the loading screens in stronghold decoration form)
  • Coruscant and Dromund Kaas Strongholds for 5 Credits Each (not the first time)
  • Something Special for LOYAL VETERANS... BUT WHAT?!


Loyalty isn't enough anymore... now it has to be unwavering financial dedication.

Take a look at this... because you'll likely not see it in the game.  It's the Galactic Alliance Statue.

How do you get it?  
Oh, I'll happily tell you... 
FIVE YEARS OF UNINTERRUPTED SUBSCRIPTION.

By the by... the cost for that is $785 - $900 USD.




So, here's EA/BioWare's official response for the following situations...

I was on vacation and my sub lapsed for a week.
"GET FUCKED."

I couldn't afford the subscription for a couple months because I lost my job.
"EAT SHIT."

I dropped out for a couple months to play Mass Effect 3, or Dragon Age Inquisition.
"WHO CARES?"

I forgot that my credit card was expiring and I lapsed.
"SUCK A DICK."

My identity was stolen and it took my bank 10 business days to give me a new card.
"KILL YOURSELF."

So, my account got hacked (even with a security key) and your outsourced customer service was unable to unblock my account for weeks...even though the offending IP address was clearly on a different continent.
"YOU THINK WE GIVE A DAMN?"

I got brain cancer and was hospitalized for 6 weeks.
"TROLOLOL SUCKS TO BE YOU."


Also, I'd like to point out how ludicrous it is to allow multiple strongholds... but only give one item (have a 1-item max on your legacy).
