The cosmetic change options should be a free perk for subscribers just like free respecs.

Too bad the release cycle is 8 weeks though to be fair 6 weeks was never set in stone. As long as it doesn't become 10+ weeks it shouldn't be a huge deal.

I think the biggest question mark is class stories. Since this is a story focused game, when will our class stories be advanced? I want to know what happens beyond chapter 3 and how our relationships with our companions develops.

Most importantly, where is the evidence that they are reinvesting their profits back into the game?

I think most MMO shops could stand to learn a few lessons from Trion about how to plan, build and run their platform.

Exactly. Now they silently raise the update frequent to 8 weeks. In state of the game #4 he will raise it again for 2 weeks and at some point we are back where we were after 1.2: No major updates for several months.

I'm starting to see the point of subscribing less and less... Back a month or so ago when I would hear peeps complaining about the F2P not dishing out EVERYTHING, I came back with "yeah, because they want to give you EVERYTHING for free, right?". But now having to pay to change your hairstyle when you are already subscribed? Something you can do in LotRO, another F2P mmo, for 100% free?? Come on! Thank god I spend close to half an hour painstakingly etching out my alts before I work them up to higher levels... Somethings should really not be paid for twice! As a subscriber we should get the MAXIMUM amount of content whenever it launches because, you know, we're already paying for it! And to anyone saying you get Cartel Coins for free each month when you subscribe, if a sub is $15 a month, please please tell me where the 'free' part is?

Final Thought: The more you give to subscribers, the more people will realize it's what they should be doing, not the other way around!!

Very good to hear that the game has had over 2 mil more accounts over the last 4 months. PSO2 in japan has only had 1.7 mil accounts total since it's launch in July last year and that is a very popular game with a similar model.

Funny how people on the forums are arguing about the 8 weeks or 6-8 weeks and I just read one that said 4-6 weeks updates. It was originally 6 weeks then they revised it to 6-8 weeks so 8 weeks is fine.

Cathar was mentioned to be a CM purchase a few months ago and it was fairly obvious to me that a barber shop would be a CM purchase too , in fact I'm sure people screamed at BioWare to include it , even if it was going to be a CM purchase.

Anyways the extra accounts is a very positive thing indeed , very pleasing.

Please someone actually working over there just look at this.

JUNE 4th 2012 where you promise Cathar along with a bunch of other stuff. Really look at the date. You're now saying Cathar will only come Early Summer... It takes you more then 1 year to produce a new playable race where there are already character models in game.

I've been here since early launch and a sub since then but seriously your development is really starting to look as an Epic Fail. Everything you produce now is CM only. How in the name of reason do you intend to get new subscriber with that... Looking at this you really should just remove the subscription model, period, as you certainly don't seem to care at all for us Loyal customers.

Ah well, apparently they are working for hood toggle, so atleast someone should be happy.
Of course they have stuff planned. First, fire development team that works on content. Second, hire more artists to create new armor models, character models, hair models, speeder models, etc. Third, sell all new "content" in new Cartel Packs on Cartel Market. Fourth, watch profits soar as whales dump abundant amounts of cash into Cartel Market in order to have the slimmest of chances to pull some sweet armor or speeders in order to run Black Hole dailies.
