This got new content every month, content that some people dont like sure, but still new content.
What exactly is that content? A 20 mins long crappy chapter? And a 10 mins long alliance alert? All of that solo? that's not end game content. That's not content. Content means something that you spend some time and effort to achiev, be it a new conquest, a new event, a new op, new FPs, a new daily area...

However, I just wanted to see if Eric, Ben or Charles was going to make a post summing everything up that was discussed as well so we can get some clear idea of everything?

-Are chapters being released all at once for the "binging", in batches?
-Mention of a livestream in January regarding operations. Is that true, or is it not operations but Group content of which we won't describe what kind until then?
-More livestreams to come to go into more detail on Uprisings, alerts, etc?
-End Date for DvL?
-New PvP maps/new types?
-GSF content?

Just wanted to see if there was any official word on these to counter the speculation that is occurring in the absence of clarity.

Thanks in advance!
I got you covered:
  • All 9 Chapters are being released with Eternal Throne's launch.
  • What we said is that after KOTET's launch, the team is refocusing on group content. Our hope is that as a part of the January Producer Letter or Livestream, we will have more specific updates on what is to come. This includes all types of group content, but was a specific answer to the question of Operations.
  • We will have a whole bunch of livestreams and blogs between now and launch to go into details on many facets of the expansion.
  • Dark vs Light is intended to end with KOTET Early Access on November 29th. However, I believe the Dark vs Light part of it to decide which Companion will be awarded, will end a week or so prior to that.
  • PvP / GSF - Refer to answer above about Operations // stream in January.

Thanks for the great confirmation of info Eric.

Along the lines of blogs and livestreams, is there a rough timeline for when we may see blogs about the upcoming expansion? I know I am itching to learn more about the galactic command feature specifically.

Edit: saw the answer in the other post! Awesome.

I appreciate the reply Eric. Please pass along my opinion that Uprisings being limited to 4-players, is a terrible freaking idea...we have a plethora of 4-player content right now...we didn't need more.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

at the start of KOTFE you showed us titles of first 9 chapters and stated that there will be 16..
Is KOTET will be only those 9 chapters or more ?
Chancellor Keith has ordered construction of New Mega Servers. 5 servers to Rule them ALL. Rebels Beware!
We had our New Hope chapter in SWTOR development it seems now is the time for E(A)mpire Strikes Back or will there will be Return of The Jedi?

If I am interpreting Eric's reply properly, future Operations are confirmed and we will get details on the when/what in January.

I think that's what he is saying.

Edit: I'm getting tired of having to interpret communication WRT Operations. Is some *********** clear communication possible please? A live stream in January is fine but give us a clear answer now. FFS.

No, that's what he's hinting. I won't believe that they are doing new operation unless they say "Yes, we're doing new operation, it'll be released not more than x months from now"

That is the problem when people mention group content and ops in the same question, the answer is muddied. It needs to be two separate questions:

1) Will the January group content discussion include Operations?

2) Will there be any future Operations?
