Apology will be accepted when you credit my weekly mission I was unable to turn in (couldn't get to the fleet to turn in the Golden Fury Weekly) in time and credit me for the one I was attempting to complete (and would have been in the 2 hours I thought I had left) for the GSi weekly ... I had ONE more mission to complete!

I agree with karkais, Its not right to put in thinigs then take them out when people have gone out of their way and spent their time and money to achieve certain things. Very uncool
1. Baby born with artificial leg. 2. Doctor grows human hearts in cabbage patch. 3. When faucets attack. 4. Shoelace vests. 5. Homicidal anything. 6. Cats who stalk. 7. Toilet paper thief strikes roadside bathrooms. 8. Cannibal grandparents.

so any posts on mainatance please put bst (thats what we are now in and not gmt which we are not
ty
Sure, because everyone knows BST... just for your information: Not everyone in europe lives in Great Britain and not every country outside of europe uses summertime, so for most ppl outside of the BST time zone (which btw is only uses by very few countrys) the GMT/UTC times are far better than BST. If they should use something else than GMT, it should be CEST which is used by the majority of european countrys.

Hey there! We're doing a lot with Crew Skills for the next patch (2.0.1), and are looking into several other fixes. Take a look at my posts in this thread for more info.

Apology will be accepted when my account is credited with extra subscription time for the days when I expected to be able to play but then couldn't because of maintenance times being changed without warning, or for maintenance not being announced in any obvious way at all. I mean, seriously, they used to announce maintenance in a big news post under "Community News", so it would be staring you in the face when you go to swtor.com/community. But now it's just put in a sticky in one subforum that I rarely click on?

I didn't pay money for x number of days so that I can sit here on one of those days and stare at a list of offline servers that were never supposed to be offline right now.

I remember reading about this in a thread a few months after launch. It was pretty much stated that PvP gear will never be better or on par with equivalent PvE gear. Expertise was a factor, but the main reason was that anyone can grind out PvP gear. It can be done completely solo and a group or guild is not a requirement, but both make it go much faster. Unless you're free to play or preferred, you can do warzones all day everyday with no restrictions. All you need patience, coffee, and a lot of free time.

You can also grind out the PvE gear, but it takes substantially longer to get especially if you're trying to do it solo. Even if you run with a group or guild, there are also limitations in place to prevent you from getting the gear too fast (I.E. weekly operation lockouts, weekly com gain limit, etc..).

In short, end game PvE gear is harder to get even if slightly in some cases. Naturally the stats are going to be somewhat higher, but expertise is supposed to offset this. With the removal of expertise, I can see them maybe boosting the gear temporary until they finally figure out what direction they're going with it. I quit doing PvP after the first time they made all my hard earned gear obsolete. I'm so darn glad I never put the time into gearing back up, only to have it rendered useless once again.

I am going out on a limb and assuming that the "itemization changes" in question is a newfound universal application of Bolster on all gear regardless of what the gear was intended for (pvp or otherwise) so that everyone goes into a given pvp match with round about the same stats as everyone else has at a given level, instead of giving a random person who spent a few months grinding special gear the advantage over every other player in the PvP match? I am also going out on a limb and assuming that these itemization changes will be preventing people from entering pvp naked and gaining the full benefit of bolster (which was supposed to be based on gear level, not character level)?

erm..i think you are right, we the subbers deserve a better gameplay, those who doesnt help the game and do nothing but flood the servers and make it laggier, as for i have seen in the past weeks that many people started play, and they were all F2P, wich made my pc bit laggier, at every planet there is like 250 players, and im not talking about the imperial fleet.
so this is pretty bad, imo make server for subbers and server for f2ps, but that would be discrimination and isolating of gamer community playing, so problably the best solution is to make more servers of each gameplay style, like more english pvp servers, and more pve and rp and w/e of each language, i mean come on, EA and bioware are rich as hell, im sure its not hard to make new servers ..
