Having to play again some more STFs isn't a concern to me. I like them and it won't take that long to hit the new tier 5 reputation, so I don't mind. My main concern is the fact that they charge for old stuff we could have for a very reasonable price with in game items. That was loots. Now it's a store. And I don't see the point of playing a game where you get endgame stuff only if you pay the price. Where's the pride to get endgame gear if you just bought it with some vague time caps and number of mission runs?
You sound like an EQ or vanilla WoW player.

Stores are the direction everyone went, in part because the pride you describe has minimal value to most folks. Nobody really respects it among playerbases and the people who do aren't a large enough demo to build an MMO around.
