Why not just answer the questions when we ask them? This seems like a rehash of the weekly Q&A, just via new medium.


My question is: Why only one new raid? Will we ever seen content downscaled to groups/solo?

How will this be different from the defunct Q&A blog?

Edit: Other than the fact that it's "live!" It sounds like you'll have the questions picked out before hand anyway.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

If done properly, this could be a new way for the developers to have more an interactive conversation with players on key issues. Of course, it could backfire if the developers just cherry pick "safe" questions. I'm hoping that this will be an indication of a better, more open development process.

It seems that defensive stats are largely ineffective in PvP due to them only applying to Basic attacks (and not Tech/Force), leading many PvP tanks to forego tanking gear completely. How does the development team feel about the current state of tanking spec/gear in PvP, and are there plans to improve it in the future?

I think it's a great idea. It's interactive and it gets people talking with immediate feedback. Things are obviously in motion to improve communication, and I feel the overall game as well. Showing negativity towards aspects of the game, and then being negative towards attempts to improve things really doesn't help.

Maybe wait and see how it goes first? I'm excited to see what comes of it.

Because that would be too easy. Also, I'm sure some of the answers would get lost considering all of the questions that are asked. They could post a weekly/bi-weekly Q&A and have it all linked to in a single thread for easy findings....oh wait, they did that and then stopped. They also didn't keep up the podcast thing (I hate podcasts but I would read the 'transcript'). I get the feeling this won't last long either (also not something I'm interested in but I'm sure others are).

Please, BioWare, post the questions and answers somewhere on the forums for us to read at our own leisure like you did for the podcasts transcripts, for those of us who don't like livestreams/podcasts.

I guess I'll ask a question to make my post more relevant to the thread. When will we get to continue our class stories?

Is there any particular reason the hood toggle option mentioned to be "in the works" months ago (and said to be in the next update after 1.2) has not been implemented yet?

It appears the new Warzone Ancient Hypergates won't appear in 1.4, so I ask when can we expect to see it?
