Also, yes, you do get what you pay for. A whole 50 cents a day. I'd say we're actually get MUCH more than we pay for. It costs four times that just for a "mediocre" lunch every day.

Hahaha!! Nice. That's really funny.

I've got plenty of complaints and rants regarding some of BioWare's decisions. Just check my post history. But, I'm sorry, if I see unsubstantiated posts and purposeful hyperbole, even when it's stated in support of something valid, I'm going to call you out on it. Why? Because it actually hurts those valid points, not helps it.

Want to know what I feel personally? All of this "orange schematic system" that has come after launch and in the future should have come all at once, at launch. Every single appearance in the game should have been available since launch. That's how I feel.

But "lying"? Sorry, that's unrealistic hyperbole that I'm going to call out.

It turns out McCarthy was not the evil zealot that he has been made out to be by the liberal left but was actually a pretty good guy, so much so that he was one of Bobby Kennedy's best friends. Of course, you won't learn any of that from the liberal (socialist) run U.S Department of Education, the liberal run mainstream media, or the liberal run Public Broadcasting System because they have been perpetrating the myth about McCarthy for 50 years, all the while trying to indoctrinate American school children into socialism.
After a lot of recent analysis of VENONA, serious scholars have given McCarthy a score of 9 spies out of 159 occused. Damned liberals and their research. A 7.5% chance at being correct, as well as jumping the gun publically, I'd have racked him up as a security risk and Guantanomoed his butt, but he's conservative so outing spy and counterespionage operations (a la Cheney) is ok. His bluster bluster and impatience brought nothing to the debate, nor did it help the services actually trying to catch the actual spies. I'll wait for Colin Powel to be vindicated when they finally find those weapons of mass destruction instead, seems more likely...sometime in the future.

Anywho...

Did we ever reach the conclusion, are there new armor schematics in the game or not? I gathered after reading through about 15 pages that there might or might not be, and never reached a conclusion. I personally haven't seen hide nor hair of new weapons save for the "customized" and "elegant" series, nor have I seen any new recipes, schematics, or resulting armor pieces after 100's of missions (2 UWT characters x 5 running 12 hours/day).

I have seen legacy weapon tokens drop from Investigation missions taken at all levels, in case anyone was wondering. I now have about 6 such tokens saved up which are unsellable and basically useless. Other than that, nada.

So what is the final verdict? New orange armor or no? Coming in 1.3 then or no?

Doing quite well, actually. 1.3 million active subs. Well above the typical MMO dropoff curve.

Now BioWare has their work cutout for them. If they want to do the atypical sub increase, they're going to have to get on the ball with server/transfers, endgame content, and appearances.

LOL this is like a real life version of The Emperor's New Clothes! 25% loss since the last report. People not counted? People that left because of missing features that were supposed to be in 1.2. What a beautiful robe your majesty!

Yep, 25%. Which is 10%+ LESS than the typical MMO.

Hey, numbers don't lie, man. And if you think BioWare's doing anything different to pad the numbers than any other developer, then I don't know what to tell you.

This is neither a defense nor an offense. It's just a statement of fact.

One of the big things told to crafters to expect from 1.2 would be a multitude of new orange schematics being unlocked and added to the Crew Skills loot tables. The community discovered schematics for Elegant Weapons, PvP appearances, and reverse engineering schematics from Black Hole and Campaign gear so far. Is this still planned for implementation, or is the community overlooking another potential source for modded gear appearances?
