I have yet to see one reasonable answer to the reasonable question one would expect an active supporter to be able to answer: How does this change BENEFIT the game?

There seem to be a lot of drawbacks to the change:
  • Fewer flashpoints being run
  • Fewer operations being run
  • Fewer risks being taken overall
  • People unsubscribing

So, supporters, please, tell me what great BENEFIT to the game comes from this change that overcomes all those drawbacks.

What personal attack?

I'm just explaining the truth.

Over-generalizing much?

We'll see what happens when people cancel subs left and right because people can't afford to play end content anymore. I think some here will eat their words then.

Done with this thread QQ'ers are most likely going to win out in the end anyways as they typically do. Who knows eventually you QQ'ers and people who want it easier will get this game to the same state that WoW is in, where you don't even buy your skills anymore, they are automatically awarded to you upon leveling up,
I've been saying this the entire time that you don't even need to run dailies. You just need to be smart about what you are putting in to what you are putting out. But everyone just wants it easy >.>

Unless we're not at home where we could play the game, but please don't allow reality from interferring with your faulty assumptions. You're doing so well with them.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

if you can prove ANY of those things happening then all power to you but you can't, FP's are being run just as often, ops are being run just as often, fewer risks is actually a good thing for ops.......

There are tons more negatives. The impact to PuGs/GF alone is going to kill off players. I was one of those guys who tolerated new players in HM FPs. I didn't care if we wiped and wiped and wiped...I was helping them. Not any more.

Again, there's NOTHING positive about this. NOTHING!
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. 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.

BW/EA probably don't care since they have big revenue from other games. Haven't you noticed the lack of customer support here? They don't care because everyone complains and there's no motivation for them to care. All they see is complain, complain, complain.

As a dev I would of done this to laugh at people.

But because they got kicked they couldn't learn and even if they don't get scared off they will never be able to learn. Vicious circle ....

I'm in the category of 3 above - credit poor - and now have to run dalies just to afford to play the parts of the game I enjoy.
What server are you on - my guild wouldn't have a problem helping you out if you are on The Shadowlands.

Then maybe you should be doing what you are suppose to be doing instead of playing the forums.
