Guess they have all hands on the new game and just hope problems on this one fade away with paid subscribers

They'd be foolish, imho. That admittedly doesn't say much. I personally would be willing to remain a paying customer for as long as maybe the rest of my life (with two subscriptions)* even if they'd never release new content from now on (tbh I don't appreciate the new content as much as I do the original story lines, and I am still haven't exhausted all the possibilities with those!)

*(Hence my frustation with this particular issue. I just bought a new expensive laptop, to uplift my 'dual playing' with my two accounts. I have had that habit for a few years now, and it has become my main SWTOR experience. Unfortunately, playing with other players destroys the immersion for me: it makes me fully aware that I'm just a guy behind a keyboard interacting with other such individuals, and I cannot overcome this awareness; I am both worrying that I am ****ling up, and easily annoyed by whatever the other people do. But when I 'dual play' it is the fully immersive group experience for me. I even have created pairs of characters this way, intended as fixed group mates. I can still do all this, except travelling by mount. And that frustrates me.)

Guess what, I have two accounts as well for the very same reason, prefer the story line which they now ignore, that's why I'll not re-sub until follow is fixed as it wastes my time having to walk on every planet.

A kindred soul! I'm sure there must be more of us. So, while we actually pay twice for our SWTOR experience, Bioware would need to address this presumingly rather simple issue with urgency!

I am indeed now too wondering to cancel at least my second account, as I don't do any crew missions atm. In fact, I hardly do anything at all in SWTOR except login to check if it's fixed, and then close SWTOR and play Kingdom Come: Deliverance or Secret World Legends instead.

EDIT I'm also not interested in other StarWars games. I love these original storylines in SWTOR, and the Strongholds, and some other features of this particular game, but the new trilogy movies are so bad imho that I'm almost ashamed to publicly admit that I'm a StarWars fan. So if EA's strategy would indeed be to let this game die to move the player base to a new game, it won't work with me. If this game dies, my SW fanboyism will henceforth be limited to an incidental rewatch of the OT and PT movies, and the dedicated Robot Chicken parodies. And I'd find another MMORPG, not related to the franchise.

Still no ETA, I'm just cleaning up Alt. stories to get them closed out and may take a break if the next bug fix doesn't address the follow bug. Will go back to Lord of the Rings as I have lifetime accounts there.
