Should never have been in certainly not for subscribers, to have ignored for this long shows poor management to say the least

It is nice that they are removing the weekly cap for classic (200), so now I'll just gear out my companions easier. I was capped on Classic coms on the 1st day and that was not even touching my supply of unclaimed raid gear (24 pieces) of that. Been capped on Basic (300) commendations by day two and just another 42 commendations to cap out elite (200) for the week. I definately never going to hit the ultimate cap tho.

Definately can't count how many commendations I have lost because of hitting the low weekly cap numbers, but its one way to either force peopel to do alternatte characters or slow them down on there mains (wont happen). But it will eventually start making the group finder ques longer for the people that don't seem ot play healers or tanks.

In addition to that - i'd really like the progression bar back that shows me how many commendations i can still earn before I hit the cap (not the weekly cap, but overall).

I hit the limit in one day with two sets of dailies, a couple hard modes, and one unassembled Columi token. Is that really all Bioware wants us to do in a week?
Weekly limits for Basic Comms, and to some extent Elite comms, are already becoming an issue.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

I have read the new patch notes for 4/16 and there is nothing reflecting the change of removing the weekly cap. I have not been doing Flashpoints and or ops since I cant gain anymore for the week on my healer and generally disappointed in the the direction the game has taken.

Excuse me but I choose which characters I play, and I choose what/where/how I play - not BioWare. If I want to run Flashpoints all day, every day, for a week, I'll bloody well do it thanks.

This weekly cap is stupid, since I already hit the limit on day 1 of the patch, and I have to wait a week to get more (which I'll again hit the limit on the first day after reset).

What do I do for the remaining 6 days? I can't farm comms to get the gear set I'm aiming for, and I can't move on to farming higher gear sets until I have a decent one to begin with.

Hurr durr, no logic in the weekly cap at all.

Justy because you don't see logic, it doesnt mean it's not there. It doesnt have to be a good logic .
From business perspective, it's very good solution, it will keep you in game longer, will force player to play few characters and spend more time till he's fully equiped.

Ofcourse forcing your customer to anything is not good at all, and they overdid it with the cap so people raged and forced them to change it... I mean comon, my healer did nothing but flashpoints (1 a day, as I have 5 chars I play constantly), usualy for leveling purposes, most included bonus bosses, and I'm capped since friday...
Again, I never said it was a good idea, I was looking for their point of view, and (in my humble opinion) they fired all smart advisors, and left only kiss ups (why censors.. why) who will suck up to team leader (quite common these days).

Anyway, they already claimed that they will remove it, so futher bashing beaten up team/advocating the devil has no purpose.

Thanks for that update Jesse

While this is a step in the right direction can you tell us what is happening with the Operations to get these comms.

I was very sad to see at 55 I cannot do EV KP or EC operations via group finder, please say this is going to be addressed as if you unlock these limits (which then means we can equip companions) we still can't do operations unless by pug's

Group finder is a great addition however why limit the access to 50 Ops, surely that is removing easy access content to small guilds like I run
