The new gear and commendation changes haven't been removed - players will not be able to queue for Ranked Warzones, but War Hero gear can be obtained.

Dropped the ball big time here.

With absolutely no exaggeration this will be seen as a tremendous detrement to SWTOR's future success.

Unless Ranked WZs come out within a week or two this game is pretty much done since a large chunk of the people that un-subbed won't be coming back.

Especially if it takes too long and other games start to come out... (D3, GW2)

You can't just cancel Rated Warzones like this at the last moment right before you deploy a major patch. If you knew you had problems/ balancing problems then you should have announced a week ago that this was going to be post-poned how unprofessional on your part bioware i am extremely dissapointed. All i can say is Diablo 3 is coming out soon, see yah later.

No.

Even when there were ranked warzones in 1.2 we weren't going to be able to queue 5+ people into regular warzones. There's no way they're adding it now.

What the hell has bioware been doing all this time? That was the only good thing about 1.2, and it's not coming... so useless, so bad. But what am I crying about? We have guild banks!(several months after release) Oh, and an amazing new flashpoint! WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR DIALOGUES. Stop trolling players bioware, please

PvP was the main allure in SW:TOR, next to Operations. With ranked warzones being pulled out of the Legacy patch, and only 4 new bosses being introduced as progression content for those who do them, it's not nearly enough for me to do to pay for this game on a regular basis.

I'm not the least impressed by the large promises given, when half of them are either half-arsed or pulled back. I've patiently told myself that it's a brand new game, and there will always be hiccups with it, so I haven't fuzzed much when it comes to bugs and some shortages (such as the absolute lack of animations when you use /s, and the odd removal of visibility of /e crossfaction, not being able to sit on chairs, and the /sit looking like a dubious sexual invite from a teenager, which ruined my RP experience with the game too), but when the only thing keeping me playing is being pulled back... well, thanks for the ride and good luck.

At an awesome 3 to 1 conversion rate from warzone comms. So grind out 9000 comms for one piece of gear.

Congratulations Bioware on Your artistic vision regarding the contents of the patch 1.2 it is incredible, I salute you.

Can you make this game more like Dragon Age 2 in patch 1.3? You know, we press a button and something AWESOME happens!!!
