I've been "dissatisfied" with the lack of high res textures myself, but seriously guys? There's no need to be blatantly disrespectful to those who are working hard to try and make the game everything you'd like it to be.
If you play this game solely for the PRETTY COLORS AND PICTURES then please, by all means /quit already because that's ridiculous. There are so many other legitimate problem threads on this forum that seriously interrupt or completely halt advancement in the game and you're flailing around because your shadows are a little jagged or your two-tone helmet isn't crisply defined?
Oh what a world we live in. Grow some patient balls and quiet down already. The game is new, it's Bioware's first MMO, people are so spoiled these days when it comes to gaming that their expectations completely override logic anymore.
And like I said, I'd like my high res textures and AA as much as the next guy, but I'm not going to crap my pants and cry over it either.
You know, I don't know why I even read the forums anymore. Actually, I don't even know why I sometimes respond even. But you people just drive me up a wall with your entitlement issues. Take your 14.99 somewhere else and go buy some tampons.
Most of us WERE patiently awaiting a resolution to this issue after Stephen Reid said weeks ago it was a known problem that was being worked on. We didn't get our panties in a bunch until people logged onto the PTR for 1.1 and saw that Medium textures had been renamed as "High" and the "Medium" option was gone altogether. Add to that the fact that there was no mention of this change in the patch notes, and some of us started to get pretty worried. Did this mean Bioware had scrapped the idea of ever making high res textures playable? No one knew and the only way to find out was to ask for more info. That's what this thread is doing. We are simply asking for information on why the PTR change happened and what it means for the future of high res textures. We (at least most of us) aren't throwing a tantrum and crying for our high res textures RIGHT THIS SECOND. We want information and clarification. If you actually read the OP you would know that.
