I'm sort of convinced now that Bioware has no true developing goals and deadlines other than making the conversion to F2P.

Think about it, for those that saw the datamined patch leaks, they'd see that 1.3 was supposed to be Terror from Beyond's release patch. However, it seemed as if Bioware had to spend so much resources on the LFG tool that Terror from Beyond in some form could not be released in 1.3. It could be done, even if it was buggy. 1.3 was on the test server anyway, players could have test the operation and if it was reasonably playable the bugs and kinks could have been fixed while it was already in the live servers. Bioware also at least has a working version of Terror from Beyond unless the studio is truly going to Duke Nukem Forever lengths of fabricating gameplay in a trailer.

There's also the usual of Bioware devs promising something then it doesn't show up for SWTOR. One Community Q&A seemed to suggest that Bioware will attempt to go back to actively trying to balance classes in between the 1.X patches, yet there's been no further word on that.

Not only that, but the weekly patches are getting progressively less substantive (and most likely without proper QA testing if Denova was any suggestion).

All in all, I'm fairly sure NiM Denova won't come out until 1.4 or after the F2P transition. But who knows when either will come, since early December is technically fall.
