The foundation between us has to be based on communication and feedback. I wont promise you something we cant deliver, nor will I purposely hide things you need to know.

As I mentioned in my introduction, Ill be providing a SWTOR 2017 Roadmap in the next few weeks. In the meantime, look for responses from me on the Forums throughout this week and beyond. Ill do my very best to be available.

Please start to respond to the tough questions/problems in a multitude of other threads.. there are many of them and they are being ignored... even just a response to them to say you've seen them would help.
RIP APAC Players 😢😢😢😢💦

I think at this point responses need to have substance. Many are already assuming that any Dev post will be a "Not-answer" at this point.

Communication for the sake of communication is a nice way to placate the community but you can only do that for so long without players losing faith.

Faith in this Dev team is something many people need restored and are hanging around hoping for just that.
SWToR really is the next SWG...

I've seen many of them! I realize the clock is ticking and information never comes fast enough. In the meantime, I'm ensuring the Roadmap is solid and expect it will address many questions, but not everything. Yet, hopefully, we can have additional dialog to provide clarity for areas of concern.

I'm crossing my fingers for you man... This "Roadmap" is going to have a huge impact for better or worse. I'm sure you don't need to be told but there you go regardless.

Thanks for the continued communication, I do have a question but maybe it would be better to ask in the actual Roadmap thread? Will we see more group content after Gods of the machine is fully released on a regular basis? I am not talking abut just operation content but PVP and Flashpoints.

This road map better be the mother of all road maps as much as you keep talking it up. It's starting to sound like another SOON meme.

As much as it is nice to have producer who is willing listen and communicate, I cannot help myself but a lot of people seem to be a bit naive. In such a corporate structure as Bioware/EA there is a big chain command above Keith and many factors he is really limited by.

I think people are aware...He may have some influence and also with his predecessor gone that may be sign of a change in direction for this game directly from EAware...

That's what I am waiting to see...Is there a design direction change or is this going to be a bunch of fluff...

Thank you Keith. I know you've got your hands full, so we appreciate the time you took to address this. I'm looking very forward to your roadmap!!!

True enough, but however, the bolstered confidence from xpac one lead to an super bolstered overconfidence so that xpac 2 turned into a backlash; which could lead to the conclusion that the "success" of xpac one really just was a fluke brought on by the release of TFA. And as such not really a calculated correct move, but rather a . . . Fluke!!

Which in turn would make the current situation to be a continuation on the non successful 180 turn this game has taken, to force it into a, well, if not a 360, so maybe a 300ish turn back and, if the almighty EA allows, some proper game development ...

Time to go and re glue my tinfoil hat . . . and don't ask me about the Freemasons, Illuminati or how the Roman Empire Secretly Rules the Earth
