Is there any chance you could upload the full-sized screenshots somewhere else sp we could look at them more closely? I'm really interested to see what other differences there might be.
I played around with forcing a negative LOD detail, and you will get the same results as in any other game... Texture shimmering. That's all.

Those screenshots are horrible, btw. They're low resolution, and are different camera angles. There's no quality difference between them whatsoever.

Seriously, there is no way that the game is downloading these textures on the fly. The amount of data being transmitted when the servers were at their capacity would have clogged even the mightiest line. It also doesn't explain why a slow connection speed would load the game about as fast as any other computer.

e- Basically its the path of least resistance, which is easier to believe? The client has problems rendering textures and other effects such as shadows, AA, etc so they turn them off. Or they have some amazing tech involving data streaming at THIS scale just to protect some IP?

were all playing the game instead of spending 400 posts complaining about something thats not happening any time soon. Its a let down, but we wont let it bring us down.
We continue to play cuz we appreciate the game for what it is.

This is going to get out of hand if BioWare/EA don't respond in the next day or two.

Besides, frankly, it doesn't matter what the cause is - it simply has to be fixed. Whatever the cause, there's no excuse for a AAA MMO in 2012 to look like this.
I think it at least makes it clear we aren't buying the 'bug' explanation. There's a reason they are holding back the existing high quality graphics and it's one they'd rather not discuss. Who ever heard of a game developer disabling already seen high-res graphics because they're too good for most PCs? It's almost a bragging right when your graphics engine is top of the range.

Well tough get in line.... trolls complain first... get your lawsuit papers on the left now move goddamit hut hutt hut.....
I am a fanboi, and I am mad.

I've always liked Bioware, and I've always loved starwars, but this situation is making me strongly doubt a continuation of my subscription.

I don't care what their reason is. Whether it is forced optimization, or some lousy DRM, I want this game to look as good as it can.

Honestly, I'm at a loss. I waited years for this game, but this is unacceptable.

I think they need to give a better response before even then. USA prime time hasn't hit yet, and then there's EU prime time after that.

Excuse me??? I can play current gen games at max settings at 60+ FPS (battlefield 3 for example). on 64/64 128 player server... and you're telling me this games graphics compare to a current gen game? I'm sorry.. what planet are you on?

Theres never 120+ in repub fleet at one time.

This is basically a SCREW YOU in the face to customers. So pissed.
