Hopefully they read this. I know my progression team enjoys doing our scheduled NiM runs, but on off days like to run HM OPs for other guildies to help gear, keep us from being too bored, etc. For those who don't have 50-11 alts that are progression ready, lockouts on HM/NiM becomes a dire problem.

Read the Q&A transcript last night and felt all your pain, but I was just reading it again and saw this

A: (Musco) Not in the plans currently to split up those lockouts. [UPDATE: Given previous comments from Jesse Sky on this subject, we rechecked the audio, and can amend that they are considering splitting the lockouts, but it won't be anytime soon.]
So I guess it's gone from a priority to a consideration now.

Most of the time, you can see logic in what Bioware does, if you look at it a certain way.

This is not one of those times.

There are, what, 20 pages of people signing this? 30? Bioware themselves said that the only reason HM and NiM shared a lockout is because NiM was nearly identical to HM earlier in the game's lifetime. They admitted that there is no reason for the lockouts to remain combined. "Consideration" is absurd and entirely out of the question.
