So, a pushback, but for good reason?

The feature list looks fun.

My question - when guilds "conquer" planets, is this a strictly PvE thing? Or are you actually taking over enemy bases, with the inevitable PvP that comes with that?

A push-back combined with some interesting features we haven't heard about and others we asked for?

Plus an additional round of thank-you's for subscribers?

Um... OK. Here, have some money.

Can I only place the companions of my character or any companion of my legacy in my stronghold? Also, will we get the option to show just armour also, without anyone has to wear them in our strongholds?

The pushback is a bit sad but the announced additional features are more than enough to justify it

Just take your time and get everything right. All these new additional features sound awesome.

Conquering a planet is done through completion of Conquest Events, which are PvE Missions.

Also, I know this is big news so I am going to be sticking around in the thread answering questions as I can. We probably aren't going to talk too much about the details of each feature yet but I will answer what I can

Eric, what are the differences between a Luxury Sky Palace vs. a Sprawling Sky Palace, can you elaborate any?

Actually, yes. I'll wait. As long as this is to provide us with few more features and deliver content less broken (or even perfectly working), I'll gladly wait a bit longer. Right now I'm really insterested to see this all in action.

Thanks for the update and transparency.
Very excited about some of the new features and if they need to bake a little more to have a more integrated experience I won't complain.

One question though. 2.8 was called the "biggest update to date" is this still the case with this no longer being part of that patch? I would expect that it no longer is but just curious.
