First you say they're deleting them, then say they need to put some clarity on it... Which is it? Or are to too busy arm flapping about the changes that you have forgotten?

In the appropriate thread, I asked the question myself as the crafting blog was contradictory because the early part of the blog said this:
arm flapping... lol. I gotta remember that one.

I was pointing that part out to somebody that apparently did not read it closely. YES they need to clarify and I see your point as well since it says that in ONE part and DELETING in another. Communication has been spotty at best and the crafting one needs more clarity.

As for the arm flapping comment.. Ya.. you can sit on your hands and not care. Like I've told others.. I'm going to ask the "WHY" questions and try to get community team to do it's job and communicate. But apparently that offends some people so they should stop reading the forums I guess.

  • Level Sync - Any chance to make optional or address concerns?
  • Crafting Lost - Can we get schems moved or at least a chest provided of them please?
  • Achievo points lost - Can we get instant 1k companion kills for those that had 10k affection already?
Let me take a crack at some of these!
  • Great question. Each week, one hard mode Operation is designated as a "High-Priority Target," players can see which Operation this is by visiting the fleet and visiting the FP/Op section. There you will find a Target Analysis Computer with a holo version of the last boss of the Op with text specifying the Op, the boss will also have a buff indicating this inside the Op. Under normal circumstances, a HM boss will be dropping ilvl 220. If they are the High-Priority Target, they will also drop ilvl 224 in addition to their normal drops.
  • No PvE repeatable has been added with 4.0. However, the team is looking at possibly adding this in the future.
  • This was answered to an extent in the Crafting changes blog. We have a list of all of the materials being removed in that blog, they will be collapsed into the relevant material of the same grade.
  • I explained a bit about this on the livestream. We have some press folks who are doing reporting on Alliance, and IIRC they are releasing their coverage on Early Access launch day, the 20th. Our plan is to match that with our own blog on Alliance around the same time.
  • I realize your post is a few days old, but Thexan's armor is now live on the CM
  • No plans that I know of to make this optional.
  • Older Crafting patterns that were impacted by the Mastery changes, or shared duplicate purpose, have been removed. Older Crafting patterns that still had a cosmetic appearance, have been moved to an Archive section. This is also affected by the other changes noted in the Crafting blog (such as changes to who crafts what)
  • There are no plans to auto-grant the kill Achievements. However, we do realize that this could mean some players will lose Achievement points in 4.0 (or gain them, if they already have the kill Achievements)
Hopefully that covers your questions!

Cannot believe you are not listening to the community Eric, the community is making a clear point that people want it to be optional. Good luck keeping this game alive, I suspect a lot of people are going to unsub. And of course you guys are to stubborn to listen to your playerbase.

Sorry but this makes zero sense. 2 minutes after servers go live Dulfy/TorCommunity/other SWTOR fansites will have every aspect of Alliance covered and everyone knows it. If you wanted more clicks for official IGN/Gamespot presentations, it should've been done this week at the latest

That's the thing there isn't a clear point from the community to make it optional. Some are for it and some are against it. Who do they listen to.

You're acting like that hasn't been the norm around here.

I'm actually shocked that he even bothered posting in this thread. Usually it's just silence and an article posting how X is changing, even though next to no community input was put into consideration and how it won't matter what people say, because players are just metrics to them.

The best way to satisfy both sides is to make it optional ... then both sides have what they want. But Bioware fails to see this VERY EASY solution.
