You keep throwing this opinion around as though saying it enough times will cause it to suddenly make sense. It doesn't. It's more important, and easier, to keep your current customers than to chase down new/old ones. Don't SWG players always bemoan what SOE did to try and entice non-players to join? Something about NGE trying to attract a new market and alienating their current fans?
Fine. Fine then. So let's hope the devs totally take this poll seriously.
It is oh so obvious that, in fact, NOT ENOUGH CLASS STORY led to the epic merge from 220 to 17 servers and F2P.
Yes, more class story. I suggest hereby BW takes another 3 years to create 8 x class stories, further 10 Gigs of voiceovers, worth 2 months of gameplay. Epic win. You convinced me.

The poll simply does not reflect the results of external polls on public MMO sites. Nothing to be disappointed about.

The drama is always heavy when folks see information that does not match up to their desires.

This is not new information. Casual players have wanted appearance options, more adaptive gear designs, alternative single player gameplay elements, QoL changes, planets, more companions, housing, free flight space combat, minigames, combined comms and animal mounts for quite some time now. To pretend otherwise is baffling....anyone who has spent any time here and around the net knows this.

Sure, the traditional hardcore players that left the game when it finally came to it's senses and discarded the draconian shackles of the original design intent don't likely want any of these changes....and if the game is to survive and thrive those would be the LAST players this game would want to court again. They were a toxic influence that almost doomed this game to failure IMO.

We have some of the items casuals have wanted since beta....others are coming soon, others still are perhaps in the works, and some on the wall of crazy.

But considering the top of the list....space combat, appearance, QoL have been or are being brought into the game, class story extensions would be the next in line. Along with added planets and minigames.

It's just next up on the list.

I think u want to misunderstand what ppl are trying to say to u. They are saying that your previous statement, about the unimportance of subs, makes no sense. Not that this poll should be BW law. And I agree, why do u think the majority of the playerbase quit 6-8 months into the game?

I think a poll like this actually can shed some light on things but not if u can choose half the options available as what u want in the game. Like someone else already said, many ppl would like new class story to be in top 5 but not many would like it as their nr:1.

Now what I want the most aint even on that poll. Not directly. An expansion where all the funds for the next expansion went into bugfixes, fixing already broken content and improving quality in general would be just epic. If that were to happen I wouldnt need any new content. I think many ppl that quit the game actually quit because of bad quality, not a lack of content alone. I was away from the game for 2 years and I just came back without knowing what had happened in the last 2 years. I love SW universe that much. What I found is that not very much really happened whiole I was away. Just more half done content. Just more of the same reason I left in the first place

Why are you doing this to me Bioware?

If you feel that way, why don't you play WoW?

I'm sort of puzzled by all the calls for make SWTOR more like WoW!!!!!

SWTOR will never be a better WoW than WoW, it's insane to try to do that.

Oh sorry, didn't realize aspiring to a top notch service, scratch that, decent service was a sin now.

I'm sorry I want expansion packs for this MMO.

Can I please stay? Pretty please? Do I have you permission? I promise I won't ever want anything nice ever again!

You didn't ask for customer service, you basically said that WoW has all the stuff that you want... which makes it silly to be here if you felt that way.

Guess it should come as no surprise that the folks who have pushed story as being the only thing the game posseses that's worth subscribing to, now push story as being the reason servers needed consolidation. "Oh so obvious ... in fact"? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news mate, but ... no. Not only no - but hell no. Not even remotely close.

This ... http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=421725
led to this ... http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=254
which led to this ... http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...60893&page=115

... which is how server populations thinned out, eventually leading to server consolidations. Story had squat to do with it.

Bioware's knee-jerk reaction to the mob's rioting exacerbated a problem that easily could have been remedied with a few weeks of patient cap adjustments. I dare say they won't be quite as willing to bend over backward for the mob again. So those who bash Bioware for not immediately bowing to their demands now have a clue as to why petulance isn't working.
