I respect that.
It seems plans are being made that will improve the game. I hope these plans are executed and are implemented well.
We'll all just have to wait and see.
I'm rooting for you, Kieth.

It's a win-win for all of us if the game improves and even starts to thrive.
Don't get too excited as all major changes to the games have to be approved by James Ohlen and he is the reason for the current state of the game.

Hate to break it to you but he can't remove GC that would have to be approved by James Ohlen and not likely to happen given that it exists as a means to force people to sub to gear up.

I'm glad to see a new guy in charge. And he seems to be an actual player of the game and someone who enjoys alts. Let's hope that means he will do away with GC. (I see the previous 2 posters mention James Ohlen would have to approve this. I'm going to hope he does).

I eagerly await the roadmap, which I hope includes a return to class/planet/companion stories such as what most started playing the game for many years ago. *crosses fingers* I very much enjoyed the game up until the chapter stuff, and though most of the story was okay, I would like to see a return to what was. Myself, I enjoy story content, but the lack of flashpoints and operations has hurt the population of the game imo.

I would also very much like to see the rest of our companions returned in a meaningful way with more content than poor Malavai and Elara got.

One thing to keep in mind about the whole "he plays the game thing" is that he may actually enjoy 5.0 and the RnG... We don't really know yet.

It's going to be really tough for anyone to change the development direction of this game because it is primarily driven by monetization tactics (EA) not how to bring in customers with fun game play. I'm pretty sure if you looked at the EA chart creating and funding FUN games is way down at the bottom of their priorities.

It has been that way for a very long time and is directly responsible for the lack of content and the systems ingame that leave you feeling disappointed or even straight penalized for participating...

It's not even a secret I would actually describe it as obvious...

I rather it not be removed but fixed for raiders and pvp players and left for those of us that actually enjoy be able to gear without having to always do pvp and operations. Atm I do not want to pvp and/or operations. Done operations in the past but right now not interested in those and with the uprisings and master mode you do need some better gear to do those.

Best way to have fun in this game is to avoid "Endgame" at all costs. PvP occasionally for fun if it suits you, do an Operation through GF if it suits you...but other wise just enjoy the RPG aspects of this game and let them trash end game all they want...

You could even do this with no Sub...

If you do Sub though GC is good for solo players that do not participate in "Endgame" I will admit. Problem is very few people can just wander around and do random missions and be happy in an MMO...Super lucky if you can though

I'm glad they got rid of expertise, but they handle pvp poorly at the moment. Honestly, they need to bolster pvp to 248, and let player skill decided battles. Then further incentivize people to participate in pvp through new loot/rep/ etc.

That may have been the intention, but the only thing GC did at launch was cause a bunch of people to drop their subscriptions, the exact opposite effect. Hence why they went into damage control mode and started trying to entice players to return by giving us back the 4.X gearing system in pieces. Since GC failed in what it set out to do, they may well remove it, or at the very least marginalize it even further than they already have. Now, whether they'll replace it with anything better if they remove it? Who knows. It would be hard to come up with an idea even more bone-headed than completely RNG gearing, but if anyone could manage it in a game they publish, it would be EA.
