My experience of SWTOR for the last two years has been one of hope, yet disappointment.

I hoped for an immersive, quality, A+ MMO in the Star Wars universe.

I started the game at launch with a group of friends who were excited to play the game. However all the launch issues and the excruciatingly slow rate of bug fixes finally drove them all off. I am the only one who still plays. They would not even return for free. Constructive point is Bioware needs to put out quality releases and turn around bug fixes faster

The game started with a Bounty Hunter class bug which prevented end game access for months. Residual bugs from that issue were never fixed, only clearing when the level cap was raised to 55. Constructive point is Bioware needs to put out quality releases, acknowledge and give updates on known bugs, and turn around fixes faster.

Then the horrible Guild Summit. Let's pay a privileged few subscribers to travel to Texas. Apparently their subscription dollars are better than mine. Then Bioware just talks at the player representatives instead of using the time to get them involved. Bioware didn't have to fly people to Texas to tell them what was coming up. Constructive feedback is Bioware needs to funnel it's resources into content and game quality.

My next memory is of Heroic Space missions that required you to buy upgrades from the Cartel Market. Amazing. Constructive feedback is never force subscribers into the Cartel market.

Still not learning from the Space upgrade fiasco, they require subscribers to purchase the next race from the Cartel Market. They still do not see why this is wrong. Constructive feedback is never force subscribers into the Cartel market.

All the damaged PvP implementations (win trading, afk rewards) show a total lack of understanding of MMO PvP. Constructive feedback is learn to do PvP right, or not at all.

I still jump in every so often and do space missions, but the last two years have been far too painful for this to be my go to MMO. I have not seen any announcements of coming features that would change this. Constructive feedback is give me new class, extended class story, new Space rail missions, Space PvE, quality pass to fix 2 year old bugs.

Happy 2nd anniversary and a big thank you for this wonderful game which is now my alltime favorite. But I had some ups and downs in the first months. When I started I had a lot of fun but after some time I lost motivation and quit (I'm still so sad that because of this I missed the tauntaun ram )

After a while I started playing together with my husband - we finished my jedi story and started as a smuggler/soldier team and had and still have a great time.

So thanks Bioware and thanks to my husband

Now I have to go and throw some more snowballs

Indeed, thanks folks!
You three are definitely way up there on the list of best community managers out of all the MMO's I've played over the years.
Enjoy the holidays!
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

You do not speak for me. Ever. If you want to suck up to Eric publicly, at least have the integrity to do it in your own name, and not that "of the people", whom you do not represent, and let those who agree with you (of which I am not one) voice their agreement themselves.

FYI: I am not saying that i think Eric is doing a "bad" job, I am saying that I do not consider it "outstanding".

Thank you for these two amazing years! I've really had an amazing time. There's just so much I enjoy with this game that it would take forever for me to name everything. Instead I'd like to share a small story about my experience about this game.

About every second week me and my two brothers visit our mom at her place. We always bring our laptops and then we all (mom included) play SWTOR together. We usually do flashpoints and heroics together and have also been known to PvP a little.
Those are really great family moments!

Thank you all for a fun 2 years! And congrats Amber on the new position!

Raid nights with the guild have always been full of great fun and memories, and I have made so many new friends.

Playing the Imperial Agent story is still one of the most enthralling game experiences I've had.
