Eric, this is really disappointing. You had initially said these would come back in a week, then moved it to 11 days so you could interact with the community on Monday. Then it was twelve days because the devs weren't ready, now we are sitting at 14 days between questions and answers with the reason being that the devs are working on another project. Is this really that unimportant to the combat team that they cannot take two hours to hash out answers to six questions? Is the forum community that low on the priority list? If the devs work on 2.5 is so important that they cannot take the time to answer us, why should we ever expect answers?

If they haven't answered because they don't know how to answer them it is just as concerning. Don't they have a unified vision for the classes from which to provide answers? Are they arguing about what the class vision should be?

Delaying answers to better interact with the community is one thing, delaying answers because you guys can't set priorities and work to deadlines is very unprofessional.

So something seemingly months away takes precedence over something that originally should have come out last friday? Wouldn't it make sense for the combat team to stay on the original schedule of the friday release but just post the answers monday morning? Just my 2c.

I applaud you Sir ! Probably the best reply I have seen in a long time on these forums regarding how the community is seen by BioWare.

Courtney will be the one posting your top 3. I will be out of town for a couple of days so you wont see my name lightin' up the devtracker. Play nice while I'm gone.

Thanks!

Don't do it. Delay if you have to, but don't leave a grenade in the hands of the Community manager that brought us heal to full.

Not to mention I doubt Courtney has the authority to actually bring our concerns up to the "busy" pvp developers. In otherwords a one way mouthpiece of the condescending Austen Peckerpaugh. The same guy who insulted our community with his "Summon Pillar" = great escapability. At least you can bring some feedback back to him, as opposed to a community manager who has even less of an udnerstanding of how to pvp, as well as less authority to actually convey our vitriolic response back.

So yeah, you're lighting the fuel (delaying) on a stick of dynamite and then passing it on to someone who already got burnt once.

The Mercenary community expectations of you guys are so low, that it would be hard to not surpass it. But we fully expect you guys to blow it, based on our experience in the past.

Agreed. It's 3 questions...if it takes 2-weeks+ to get 3 questions answered, it's understandable why it takes 18+ months for PvP content.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

Just to head off any nitpicking, it is 6 questions. Updated my post. Still should not take more than a couple of hours for a professional team to hash out.
