Now all we need is an update on the 50 planetary comms total and what will happen to the excess when 2.0 goes live.

I bolded and underlined what I am about to refer to, can you point me to a specific thread about this? I am 99% positive I know what you are referring to but I don't want to misspeak.

Then may as well never turn it off in that case. Can't have it both ways no matter how much BW tries.

Well, there's this. http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...73#post5913873

There isn't a mention of planetary coms specifically, but I'd guess it would be a similar result.

I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Alright, I have an answer for ya, I even come bearing details! The answer to the first part is that, as you know, you will have a cap of 50 Planetary Commendations. The new information I have for you (and I confirmed with Ahmad) is that the overflow that you will have when 2.0 launches is another 50 on top of that. What this means is that any Planetary Commendations that you have above 100 will be lost.

Hope that clears it up! Nice work chuixupu on trying to clear it up as well as that had "part" of the answer. Go team!

Hi folks!

To piggyback a bit on what Eric's announced above with regards to Scalene Armor in patch 1.7.2:

In addition to removing Golden Scalene Armor with the next patch, your feedback prompted us to reduce the level requirement on all Cosmetic Galactic Reputation rewards to level 10. This includes Voss Ambassador's, Hyperspace Hotshot, Section Guardian, and all Scalene Armor.

In making this change, testing revealed that the Golden Scalene Armor's level requirement was also raised from 1 to 10. This means that players wearing the armor who are under level 10 won't get any benefit from the armor until the bug is fixed (we plan to deploy the fix with the patch following 1.7.2). We'll be sure this makes it on the Known Issues after the patch, but we wanted to let everyone know about this now. That way, if this will affect you and you're so inclined, you can hop on and level your characters to 10 before we deploy the patch!

One final related thing I wanted to slip in for anyone who didn't see my post here. Companion Characters will be able to wear Reputation gear after Patch 1.7.2.

Please remember that testing can always prove to delay things, so if any of this changes, I'll let you know.

My jaw dropped. I'm sold. This is a new Bioware. Major kudos.

Edit: I was so stunned I forgot to say thank you. THANK YOU.

O brilliant , iv'e just come back from having my dinner and I read your first message then read this next one , I would have pointed you in the direction of the thread/s otherwise. Hey thanks a lot Eric iv'e been waiting on an answer for this and that is great news.

Yeah I realised that 50 maximum was great with no weekly cap but I was concerned that my comms above the 50 mark would go away. So 100 is great as I was working towards that figure for a few nights , i have used up a few comms under the 100 mark , but only on two characters last night . So I'm good to go.

Appreciate the update and yeah Go Team! Indeed!

Cheers,

BadOrb.
