Are GSF adjustments in the pipe?

There are a lot of fights with 3 gunships or / and 3 bomber or more bombers and gunships. Who moves dies *Pew Pew Chess*. Scouts and Strike Fighter are sadly out of chances, if Gunships and bomber clusters or bomber hide mine spamming under the satellite.

some weaopons are to strong (Railgun, Burst Laser Cannon, etc)

usefull things are not accessable (Interdiction Missile, Retro Thrusters)

and some are nice but not really usefull (Sensor Drone, Weapon Power Converter, EMP Missile, Ion Missile etc)

or very hard to lock on (Torpedo, Concussion Missile, etc)

and still the cloakable ship is missing.

If I opt to side with the Imperials will I get a chance to put a slave collar on Elara and bring her back to the empire so she can be re-educated and once again be a productive member of society?

I'm trying really hard not to be a downer on this because things do sound promising.

At least You are giving us some new game content and it is a balance between Story, small group and Operations.
My concern is that the fact that you don't already have Ops or PvP content ready to roll indicates that you have been "all hands on deck" with what has been rolling out lately and it appears that the next releases will be all hands on deck patches as well.
For me this confirms the idea that you have a smaller staff than during past releases and that is part of the reason that the content drops are getting smaller. 1 boss at a time with it taking most of the year to complete the entire Op just feels all sorts of frustrating though... It's 1 boss, just 1. If you screw this up or launch it with game breaking bugs then I'm gonna have to call SWTOR quits. I'm sure you don't care, but I do.

The fact that you are being just a little more straight forward and slightly more transparent is nice, but you have a long way to go. I want to believe and I want to be optimistic, but your track record leaves me extremely skeptical. One of my guildmates coined the phrase skeptimistic (skeptically optimistic) and I think that describes the situation extremely well.

It's a good move putting the content on the PTS I hope plenty of us participate and that you actually listen to our feed back. I'll be on the PTS, I hope to see many others there as well. I believe that the PTS should be a permanent thing and all content should go there as soon as it is playable. Give the community the chance to give you feedback on a more constant basis. The time for being secretive and trying to surprise players is over. On one wants your surprises anymore, we want a game that works and your surprises have just generated more animosity the past 2 years to be honest.


Gearing still blows, not just because of the grind fest that CXP has become, but because the waters get muddied and the system gets even more confusing with each change. You wanted to give us a less confusing method of gearing that opened end game gear up to even the casual players. Well you are failing miserably on the less confusing part...
Here's an idea, why not name the gear sets after the Spec? Instead of Sage healer gear being called The Force Mystic's Set why not just call it The Seer Sage Set, so on and so forth. This would go along way in clearing up some of the confusion that folks new to endgame gearing often have. I don't think that the use of Comms and unassembled pieces made garing confusing, I think it was all the different gear sets and the naming convention.

Good luck, I hope it all works out because I enjoy playing SWTOR. As much as I want to go buy a Nintendo Switch I'd rather you produce something so awesome that I decided to sink that $300 into SWTOR and my PC instead.

Well I will say this is this first content patch since 3.0 that I have been looking forward too and I can attest with my guildmates as well. We are aware of the budgeting and the damage that last 2 years of Singleplayer did to the raiding community. That said we the few remaining experienced raiders are willing to help and in the case of PTS if it's closed please please make sure the raids are being tested at least in Veteran and Master by experienced raiders and or raid teams. We don't want the harder difficulties to be faceroll but tuned to be an appropriate challenge. Just letting you know we will gladly offer are services and hope feedback is greatly considered for tuning purposes. Thanks

--I am checking into that now, I will get back to you.
--Yes there will be 8 and 16 man.

Eric I sent you a PM with a couple things... One thing I want to point out on another issue though, if you guys ASK for feedback on the forums, can you PLEASE inform the moderators? One of the things you ASKED for feedback on got moved to the shredder box of the suggestion forum that you guys NEVER read or respond to.
OK fine... I'll post my referral link in protest.

Fear not, they are just doing their part! We absolutely read the suggestion box forum so don't worry about ideas/feedback not being seen there.

Can't wait to kill Quinn on my warrior. He should have died long ago.

I wonder if I can side with the Empire and still kill Quinn...that would be magical.
