This game feels abandoned

And the whining was intense enough that they never tried that again.

If you want to place blame for the lack of spontaneous events, place the blame squarely on the many QQing players who want everything handed to them on a platter at a predetermined time so their ever so special selves don't miss anything, not on Bioware. That was the best thing they ever did in game and it will likely never happen again.
Have to agree with the reasoning here. Though, we'll never know what other events of this type may have been planned had F2P not happened.

With so many layoffs, there must have been a lot of projects that were abandoned. Example: I'm certain we would have had more objective-based pvp maps.

And, no, I'm not a pvp player, and am not commenting on the state of ground pvp. But it's pretty clear from the early game updates, ones that included Ops and a corresponding pvp map, that this was probably an approach that would be continued. After the layoffs, however, we never saw another objective-based map, save for Ancient Hypergate, which was clearly already well in the works or done that summer.

The only thing that has stayed a priority for sub-based updates are Ops. FPs and PvP maps got dropped.

You're acting as if space combat is the major part of the game. It's not.

Yes, your sig says it all, but sadly you don't realize what it really says about you. Everyone else does, though.

I can definitely see how players who are stuck in a wishful thinking rinse & repeat cycle about how this game should have been an exact reincarnation of games they used to play and fell in love with might feel abandoned. There are those of us who have moved past that (i.e. adults) and play SWTOR for being SWTOR. We don't feel abandoned at all:

2.0 (4/9/2013)
- Planet: Makeb
- Operation: Scum & Villany
- HM FPs: Athiss, Cademimu, Hammer Station, Mandalorian Raiders

2.2 (6/12/2013)
- Operation: TFB NiM

2.3 (8/6/2013)
- 55 FPs: Czerka Corporate Labs, Czerka Core Meltdown
- Event: Bounty Contract Week

2.4 (10/1/2013)
- Operations: Dread Fortress, Dread Palace
- Mission Area: Oricon

2.5+ (12/3/2013 - present)
- Galactic Starfighter
- Return of the Gree event
- Return of the Life Day event

Not even close.

The "lol pve" is what keeps games alive, that are not advertised as PvP games.

As a professional MMO analyist you surely know that SWTOR never claimed to be a PvP game and as such, PvP is nothing more than a side game with the main focus clearly being on "lol" PvE.

But everyone reading any post of you already realized, that you do not let your post be irritated by facts or logic

"Those of us" meaning your own personal group of friends who happen to be adults? Because you don't speak on behalf of the entire "adult" community

or the certain group of trolls on these forums who try & drive out any form of critcism and 'negativity'
