No way to buy Gree Weapon this time around... | 02.14.2013, 11:31 AM

It's possible to get enough trophies to get to champion, but if they take the vendor away we will have to wait to buy the weapons.

I've got enough trophies to be a Hero and by the next week will have enough to be a Champion,

so PLEASE BW LEAVE THE VENDOR AN EXTRA WEEK OR TWO!!!!
Hey AshlaBoga,

Just wanted to let you know that the Gree Vendor will be sticking around after the event ends

More proof BioWare hates crafters and those using the GTN | 02.13.2013, 05:58 PM
Howdy everyone,

I'm jumping into here to give a little more insight on what happened here. First off, I wanted to apologize for the lack of the patch note at release - that was an oversight on my part.

Now I wanted to address why this change was made, and how it will be changing in the near term. Since we have launched, we have continued to add many more items to the game. As we have added more items, there are more items the GTN needs to search against whenever you enter a search team. What we had been seeing is very broad searches were causing enormous performance problems with the GTN. These performance problems would impact everyone using the GTN and not only the person conducting the search. This actually made the GTN unusable for some players.

For example, if I searched the GTN for "a b" then I would end up causing a performance issues for everyone else using the GTN at the same time. In our efforts to provide a solution and address this, we inadvertently impacted y'all pretty severely and created a wretched inconvenience. This is unacceptable for us.

To that point, we have a possible solution that will solve everyone's needs without crushing the GTN performance. This change will go into a future patch (not tonight’s unscheduled maintenance). However, we feel that this will be a solution that will work for all parties.

Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and annoyance this has caused everyone. The last thing we want to see is us adding frustration to your experience in-game. I hope this little peek behind the curtain helps explain our rationale and lets you know just how serious we are about fixing this!

Bring back Scoundrel UpperHand proc laugh | 02.13.2013, 11:30 AM

Its been feeling like we're discussing some of this stuff in a vacuum even when the majority can see fixes needs to happen, we can't even get a sense that you guys are on the same page. Can we expect to be seeing BW responses on a weekly basis? Biweekly? Obviously you won't answer every or even most questions, but just knowing that the occasional thread actually gets read is huge.
I have been lurking the forums since they were created, I just never had the opportunity to post until now... I'm sure I will regret the decision at some point

Just kidding! I'm looking forward to responding to as many topics as I am able to but I cannot guarantee any type of quota for me or my fellow devs of course. I know its not as satisfying/comforting as having a golden yellow response but trust that we are lurking, reading and noting suggestions even if we don't give the thread a response.

Keep up the discussions! Cheers!

Bring back Scoundrel UpperHand proc laugh | 02.13.2013, 09:31 AM
Good news everyone! Upper Hand and Tactical Advantage proc laugh/giggle is coming back in 2.0! Your Scoundrel or Operative will now chuckle most heartily when they gain their first UP/TA when they previously had zero. Before we took it out completely the sound was playing every time you gained an UP/TA and was really spamming everyone with their infectious chortles. I really miss the giggle so I’m glad we are bringing it back, hope yall enjoy it as well!

Cheers!

Lethality Op PVP vid 2 | 02.12.2013, 05:55 PM
Great highlight video Nebukanezer! I really enjoyed your use of AoE damage and cover (Explosive Probe is so very neglected for the Lethality Ops I find) in addition to those nasty Culls of yours. Especially liked your first video where you fight the Focus Sentinel (http://youtu.be/Igzb7Foxo6s?t=5m8s) and DoT up the whole team at center point in CW (http://youtu.be/Igzb7Foxo6s?t=19m38s) Great stuff!

Also how about that Carbine Blast, Frag Grenade and Orbital Strike all on top of a ticking Corrosive Grenade? Does some devastating area damage amirite? I don’t use Carbine Blast as often as I should in those situations so thanks for showing me how it’s done. Now you got me all jazzed to play my Dirty Fighter tonight! *POW*

language issues on forums | 02.07.2013, 05:19 PM
Thank you for your reports! We’ve investigated this issue, and it appears to be a rare problem with the way some search engines index our website and forums. If you experience this issue, there are two easy workarounds. As others have stated in the thread, you can use the language toggle buttons at the top of the page, or you can manually edit the URL in your browser to take out the unintended language that’s being displayed (/fr/ or /de/).

Underworld Surgeon / Barber Shop | 02.07.2013, 10:21 AM
Howdy!

I love the idea of a barber shop feature; we've kicked the idea around a great deal internally. I especially love the idea of being able to add scars to your character as you level (or maybe even change your human to a cyborg because he took too much battle damage!).

Animal Mounts in the Cartel market | 02.07.2013, 08:18 AM
Howdy everyone!

I wanted to pop in here and let everyone know that we are very much reading y'all's suggestions (and the ensuing debates ). I figured the Animal Mounts discussion would be a good one to jump in and let you know that creature mounts are something we have wanted for quite some time now. Now, obviously I can't tell you anything concrete yet - mostly because there isn't anything concrete yet - but I can tell you that Hoth doesn't feel right without being able to ride a tauntaun.
