I wish to see a Objective with reward open world PvP, with obj in every planet, so you dont have only one Ilum lag fest.
The Objective can have some NPC defending it so you dont have only to fight with other faction but with NPC too.
There should be a reason for doing this that can be a crafting bonus, medals bonus, and maybe special item bonus.
You can add PvE content to but at least give us a real world PvP, we cant farm wz or ranked wz all the time, players have to have the possibility to choose and have fun doing what they want.

Much much better topics chosen this week. Less fluff more meat to chew, I like it. This weeks topics include DE's interview with PC Gamer, Very interesting indeed. Especially this.

PCG: Is the group finder available for Hard Mode Operations, or just Story Mode?

DE: Just Story. Pick-up groups for Hard Mode would be more frustration than anything else.

PCG: Will they be cross-server at launch? Is that planned for the future?

DE: They will not be cross-server as we are coming up on a huge move to servers with massively higher population caps than we have today.
I would have missed that. Suddenly I'm feeling a little more inclined to re-subscribe. Reading between the lines does the above comment suggest server merges before 1.3?

Of all the threads last week, those are the ones you noticed? No wonder...
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I love the idea of super servers! However. I feel like that would make for some extreme lag on fleet..

Discussion question: If we have mega servers would it be beneficial to have a chat channel linked to several different areas. For example: Coruscant senate tower area, Nar Shaddaa central zone and Fleet.?

My thoughts: this would decrease fleet lag at fleet in high pop servers, while still letting people communicate. Additionally. I'm visually exhausted by always being on fleet when trying to form a operation group.

I would like to see the banning of using mounts in the fleet. It looks like a pile up of wrecked vehicles. It also make it difficult to get to the switch to access the auction house.

All they'd have to do is make some areas, such as around GTN's, mail boxes, NPCs, etc work as if they were in dorr areas. That way, you could zoom around on you speeder, but you couldn't block a mailbox or trainer.
