Thanks for the stream! Here are my questions:

How does the conquest bonus work for the 5th stronghold? There are plenty of players from my guild interested in that question.

What is your policy on names, and will it be strictly enforced by Customer Service in the future? (like having Jedi or Lord in the title)

With the upcoming PvE/PvP instances, how do the open-world PvP areas on Ilum and Tatooine work in PvE instances? On the PTS, players are not flagged inside those areas, so what will happen to the PvP quests from the Gree event?

Are the new HK-55 weapons from the April subscriber reward bound to legacy?

How will the stronghold conquest bonus be affected now that our max number of strongholds is increased?

Eric can you please address why slicing nodes were nerfed from prototype lockboxes to premium lockboxes? Thanks for the update as well.

Let's talk Legacy Names sorting in guilds and Main-Character tags:

Legacy Names are NOT unique. What happens when multiple guild members have the same Legacy name? This happens often especially with friends/spouses/families playing in the same guild. Still no way to tell which characters belong to which Player.

You should instead create Main-Character tab and automatically flag first character that joins guild as the Main. If the player brings in more character to the guild they could change it, but since Character Names are actually unique (while Legacy ain't) this would ensure no 2 accounts could be mistaken as the same one due to idential Legacy name.

Please fix force user companions so they can use vibroswords again like pre 4.0.

I have no chars I would want to use the reward on, yet I'd like to have it for Ashara.

So it's a bug that it's called something different currently in-game?

But no reunion with an old companion?

Does this guy replace Khem Val or we will get two Dashades (which I find unlikely)?

A lot of guildies approached me and voiced concerns and confusion about that legacy name thing. There are options to hide legacy name for a reason, so not everyone can/should be able to read them and know. The question is, who will be able to see that. I seem to recall something about "GM only" which could mean guildmaster only? If anyone has any more details, would be appreciated!

Everyone inside the guild can see the legacy name, and it is immediately visible when you open the guild window, you don't even need to change some columns around to see it.
