and yet it took them two years to copy star conflict and still get it wrong. star conflict has been our for a year now and even though its still in beta its WAY better than GSF. and to say you would much rather have a rushed out product with less content so you can get bored with it soon than wait a lil longer to have even more content that will take you even longer to get bored with just sounds stupid you know that right??

Have you contacted support about your inability to play the game for the past two years?

And FYI, it's a game you play for fun, not something you "put [time] into."
FYI i can say whatever I want...i can say i play for fun, i can say i put time into ( which is true )

And the GSF minigame is by far not an expansion...well to you it may be...but compared to other games expansions it's no where near the same.

There is no winning for BioWare in this...

Honestly, if I was in charge, I wouldn't give the players anything for the 2nd anniversary... I'd ask what they were willing to give me since I have provided them with a game for 2 years...
and my reply would be the sub fee every month not to mention any cartel coin purchases. are you really that dumb? have you not played any other MMO game?? the people at bioware don't give a crap about its players it never has! it was obvious back when it was in beta! this game was published for a quick money grab and the only reason its still around is to bleed as much money as possible from us with as little effort as possible

Im a bit puzzled by this sentence? Wouldnt that be the MO of every company on earth?
Though they would have it worded differently, this would be the mission statement of every company I know of, not just gaming studios.

I am not being negative at all.

Here is people like you: So, you get a free rotten cheese burger. But, you should be glad you got something for free and sthu. You want to live in a sub-par world with "free" things...enjoy the mediocrity.

Free doesn't me good, worthy, or quality. Just because something is "free" doesn't mean it is worth a crap.

here is an analogy.

1) Promoting a average product with average quality and putting average effort into it expecting people who pay a monthly fee for this average product to be happy with table scraps.

or

2) Pushing your staff to do the best and be the best at everything they do making a superior and quality product which everyone can be proud of in so doing making the consumer and most of all subscribers amazed and happy in all things.

Which one do you think Bioware is with SWTOR heh? With "rewards" and "celebrations" like this it's obvious it is not the second one. I would be embarrassed to work at Bioware to be honest. Face it buddy, if this game didn't have the Star Wars logo and lightsabers with Sith and Jedi in it, it would have died LONG AGO.

You either DO SOMETHING RIGHT....or don't bother!!!

This! Seriously, how can people not see how copy-pasted this "sizable" expansion is? They really should be ashamed if this is the "super secret space project."

Just compare the gameplay:
Star Conflict:

SWTOR:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ps4DGzVmbU8

*Sigh* I think they should just stick to to what they do well and make more makeb-like expansions. Or if they want to add more mini-games they should at least advertise them as such, and not as "expansions."

MMO gamers, for some reason, believe that games are produced for the sole purpose of making them happy. Anything that makes money is evil and must be destroyed. Also, every hardcore gamer in the forums would have made a great game developer if companies would simply LISTEN to them. They know all the answers. They knew them before they were born.

The fact that you think any of this is "copy and paste" just shows how little you know about anything that really goes on behind the scenes. Based on that, you can pretty much discount your post as trivial, meaningless ramblings of a kid who has no idea what goes on in the real world.

Right, and what exactly goes on behind the scenes? The SSSP that's supposedly been in the works for years just happens to look (well, with a bit of a downgrade) and play exactly like another f2p game that was released a year before this came out? Even the game modes are the same. Seriously, if you have some insights instead of immature insults, please share them.

Also, I doubt all video game developers enter the industry solely to make money. There's such as a thing as making a profit and pleasing your customer base. Bioware used to make top-quality RPGs and while Bioware-Austin isn't the same company they do still carry the Bioware name. Why do you expect MMO players to pay monthly fees and not expect anything in return? If, like you said, these companies are not here to please their customers and only to take their money, then they need to provide a product that customers are willing to pay for. And THAT is why people will post about things they would like see added to game... and don't forget, the only people who post here are people who pay. So they have a right to ask for certain things (otherwise what are they paying for?).

Edit: Hmm, upon further consideration I'm going to have to report your post because I think posts like yours make the forums toxic. Not that I think it will actually result in anything but I thought I'd let you know anyway as a... formality.

Hell, if you think about it, WE are the ones that should be giving THEM stuff since they have been providing us with this game service for 2 years and putting up with all our whining...

So... what are YOU giving bioware for your anniversary?
I have been paying them a subscription and CC for 1 year and all I got was fireworks? Can they at least give us CCs for all the money that I have willingly and full heartedly given to them? And as for the paint jobs, as much as I love G.S.F I don't see the need for another paint job that nobody can even really see. Thanks for the free stuff BW, but it's a little on the blah side.
