I think that is only mildly passive-aggressive. It's fine.

I have not bothered anyone recently, as I have interpreted that by a.) allowing my thread asking specifically for a confirmation of Gabe Amatangelo's leak regarding SRGs with Makeb to remain open on General Discussion and b.) the lack of any official response to be (along with Hall Hood's mysterious disappearing tweet) a non-confirmation confirmation that SGRs are expected to roll out with Makeb. Since they cannot confirm that, I find it unlikely that they will be able to tell us anything else right now. But there has been enough indications that they want to tell us when they can which I am inclined to believe that they will.

Not saying we shouldn't keep unanswered questions visible (many are as old as this thread). Just that on my end, I am not pushing hard for those answers right now.

My post is the third result on Google. Why Google? Why? D:

So I did the logical thing: annoy Mr. Gonzalez with another request that will be ignored.
If you're absolutely out of luck, I guess you could always try contacting here through Facebook. I found it rather easily through simply searching her name through Google, and her page lists her position at EA, so as long as you're respectful and polite, I don't see that it'd be an issue.

I don't think it is necessarily helpful to go up as far as EA for this. Based on the fact that Joveth and others have mentioned sending things for approval before release, the okay to release information is probably handled in-studio. At a guess, the General Manager, Matt Bromberg, is who you'd want to approach. I gave the ground mail address and phone number in this thread a while ago.

can i just say something. Not being negative or anti gay or anything but if you look at this from Bioware's stand point and see the amount of work to be done to implement this and then look at the track record of the game and the decline in subs, well then you must realize that your most likely not going to get this in game.

Like it or not this game isnt going to well, it would be a HUGE waist of money and time for Bioware to do this, and for what? its all about money and im sorry to say but you most likely will never see this in Swtor.

One, the money and development time has already been spent. Gabe Amatangelo has already said that it is just a matter of getting this onto the release schedule.

Two, the game lost subs early. Those were probably not people who would have stayed with the game anyway. On my server, I see players brand new to the game all the time. SWTOR isn't dying. It is still finding players, they have huge amounts of content lined up for 2013, and F2P is going to be a huge new influx of money.

So we know it has been worked on, we have all but had it confirmed officially that it is coming with Makeb. Players who find development time spent on this will just have to realize that not everyone is going to like everything added to the game.

Thanks for your patience and thank you for supporting the game! As I mentioned in the email to Uluain, we really do appreciate your discussions on here and we are definitely keeping tabs.

So yes, SGRs are being worked on. I suspect that a lot of the work was done before launch, but they couldn't finish it in time.

This is why we need a community manager or even a developer to come in and talk with us openly. The current state of BW's team and the game itself looks like it has some players nervous about the future of SGRs.

Seriously, if I was a community manager I would have this huge urge to pull a Sam Kinison and start screaming "SAY IT!! SAY IT!!!". Of course I would shortly lose my job, but man it would feel good.

Talk to us. We have waited this long, we're not going to go all postal on you. Just give us a few simple answers to a few simple questions. You're not guarding the Queen's Jewels here, it is a bit of info on how SGRA will work. Time to break down that wall of silence.

Sorry for the sidetrack, but man I haven't seen Back To School in years! Rodney Dangerfield was a genius and Sam was, is and will always be one of my heroes. <sniffle> I had some very cool parents and they let me see all of his taped specials as a kid. I enjoy him even more in my 30s.

Simply echo'ing this. A little bit of direct information would go a really long way at this point.

Edit: My rant really isn't appropriate right now. I'll post it again later, maybe.

Yes, please. Joveth, Allison, Loyal Community Support Person anonymously reading this. We aren't asking when (we know that, more or less, and that is enough). We are asking how. This affects how people are choosing to play so as not to miss out.

Answers to any of my recent questions are welcome, but some detail as to how these new romantic options will work for existing player characters is the very most important. Please escalate this to whoever can approve a discussion of this. Please let us hear from the Dev Team how this will work.
