Given the defects they ship with and have let remain over the years, if they think it is not acceptable to defer the currently known defects in 5.2, I'd very much want them to fix and retest them thoroughly; they must be really bad. Rather wait for a week than have the game start taking liberties with my currencies.

<< Edited to remove extended speculation. >>

I can understand why they waited till the last minute. Not shipping this on time would likely cause red faces and garner slaps on wrists for a few managers and there was an attempt to avoid that if at all possible.

Making CXP and UC legacy-wide should make up for this.

Compensation better be in order. And a continuation of the CXP/XP event is a must.
I agree. This is nuts, they could've been honest about it last week. They've had so much time. They pumped it up and promo'd it and then boom, let down. Really, given the history, I shouldn't be surprised.

Wow, what an epic fail. Guess I am going back to ME:A... And to think I stopped playing it only because I was so impatient about 5.2...

while this is disappointing, I'm gonna try and look on the bright side. in typical BW fashion they would have gone forward with the release anyway and we'd be looking at another couple of month of fixes due to buggy content. id rather the delay then that. so, assuming there's a good reason for the delay, im gonna call it a step in the right direction...

I'm going to go against the grain here, I think its a good thing to make sure to get it right and wait if they need to. There are enough bugs, no sense adding more.

People here need to chill out, seriously. If I was a Bioware employee I would definitely not feel motivated or enthusiastic about my job knowing I was serving a bunch of whining, unappreciative @ssholes.

The playerbase deserves a real apology and real signs of improvement from the development team, and subscribers deserve compensation for the shoddy way they're being treated. I know there are multiple people in my guild that we convinced to re-sub because of this patch, and I don't know if we're going to be able to retain them because of this. By this point, many people have locked in time off and otherwise made plans that they cannot change based on the assumption that when you guys gave us a date, you were going to follow through with it.

If you had any idea that you were not going to be able to make the date, you had a responsibility to let us know that well ahead of time, rather than 10 hours before the maintenance interval. I've been a subscriber since launch, but I took a couple months off from playing the game at the end of the year because it had grown stale. The Command system, uprisings, and the promise of new Operations content had me excited to get back in. Now I feel like I've been played for a fool. We deserve better than this. We deserve much better.

And if you're delaying the patch for another week, for the love of god put some class balancing in. Mercs/Commandos are far too difficult to kill.

Bioware and EA you are absolutely awful at customer service and the development of this MMO.

Your regular players want quality additions to PVP and Operations (that's real operations not just one stupid boss)

We don't want crappy box opening experiences, or some solo bore fest that takes the MASSIVE MULTIPLAYER out of MMO.

If you are going to consistently f*** up this game, can you please just stop, hand over the rights to a decent developer so STAR WARS gets the love it deserves and decent multiplayer content additions at regular intervals.

I honestly think the develop team smoke crack with the money gained from people's subscriptions, it's the only explanation for their moronic decisions. So out of touch with reality.

See you next tuesday bioware
while you do ofc have the right to your opinion, plase don't presume that you speak for all players. that is all...
