All this does is accelerate the time table of vet rewards for people who buy them.
I can see DEBATE over this change but if this makes you think of NGE, I think you have MMO PTSD.
I admit I feel sorry for MMO devs out there who have to live with every decision they make getting weighed against NGE.
If I had to draft a marketing plan for an MMO, I'd probably hire half the NGE team and post a big disclaimer: "Not for former Star Wars Galaxies Players!" I mean, sheesh, WoW players get grief but most of them tend to come into other MMOs with constructive advice.
Invoking NGE is the MMO equivalent of Godwin's law. It belongs on the forum language filter. :-)
I'm curious to understand the similarities. NGE was a major game mechanic change. This is just giving some people items they were eventually going to get anyway.
I thought the poster I was quoting meant the shock and "WTF'ness" that hte NGE brought with the similarities of X time for Y things (Jedi rankingm etc) being given out all of a sudden to almost everyone instantly.
