The only direction that has been made clear by the current leadership is a nearly total focus on the Cartel Shop, with secondary consideration payed to all other aspects of the game, with those secondary systems being tied into the Shop as well. The direction of the game is very obvious, but it's not exactly something they want to make clear.
Yes, my response to the blog is that we didn't get a State of the Game, and I'd like to get one. The SotG was oriented on 3 isolated and short-term issues. Let's get back to big picture. Many developers left the building, the game wasn't meeting any stakeholders' expectations, and I'd like to know where the leadership and vision is going on various segments of gameplay and game development.
