BioWare have added an option to the Cartel market for the big spenders. It’s now possible to purchase 14,500 Cartel Coins for $99.99 – ingame.
It comes out at just about 145 Cartel Coins per dollar – roughly an extra 7.5 CC/$ compared to the 5,500 Coin package.
Sadly, it’s not as great a deal if you compare what the 5,550 Coin denomination offers over the 2,400 (you get an extra 17.5 coins per dollar there), but it you’re looking to purchase an enormous amount of coins, it’s now the best value. The increase in “bonus” coins that you get for simply spending more on one purchase is not as great as it is between the $20 and $40 tiers.
You could make one $100 purchase or a $20 and two $40 purchases. The $100 one would get you an extra 1,100 coins. Still a lot to spend on Star Wars fun bux, but I suppose if you’ve got money to burn, might as well get the most out of it.
This also means I can’t play the game while drunk anymore…
