Well, what worries me is that they still haven't clarified how these will work (New companions? Old ones? Will we have to reroll? Will some classes/genders be left out? etc.)
It's easy to assume that this is b/c they don't know either and haven't touched them. But we still have no idea atm.
Well, I know to some it doesn't mean much, but I do feel this part of the State of the Game is essential:
"Secondly, I want to reveal today that we are adding SGR with some NPCs on Makeb and do intend on pursuing more SGR options in the future. More details to come!"
If there was nothing more meaningful to come, why add this last bit? They'd get themselves into hot water all over again if they raise expectations yet again and in the end fail to deliver. I for one am gonna be waiting for what this "more details, more options" is, before I'm deciding on whether I'm disappointed or not. I'm even ready, by now, to reroll if SGR gets added with old companions. Rather that than not being able to play a few chars that I've been wanting to play for ages.
Though I personally donīt expect full SGRAs to come before the expansion bringing chapter four of the character story, and that will likely not come before the end of 2013.
That sounds reasonable enough to me. New story content, especially class content and/or new companions will most likely come with new SGR options. I don't feel like they want to backtrack on that, now that the actual "implementation part" is out of the bag, minor or not.
