I guess it's gone from a priority to a consideration now.
Most of the time, you can see logic in what Bioware does, if you look at it a certain way.
This is not one of those times.
There are, what, 20 pages of people signing this? 30? Bioware themselves said that the only reason HM and NiM shared a lockout is because NiM was nearly identical to HM earlier in the game's lifetime. They admitted that there is no reason for the lockouts to remain combined. "Consideration" is absurd and entirely out of the question.
