Oh I know. We in the gaming community have known of EA's moniker of the "Kiss of Death" for MANY years now. NOTHING they do surprises me. They are a total anathema that should be wiped from the face of the planet.

EA = Nickle and Dime and Nickle and Dime

Forbe’s Paul Tassi writes, “I’ve been covering hate of EA for quite a while now, and understand why their brand is so despised among gamers. They have [a] habit of buying beloved gaming companies and either summarily executing them, or corrupting them to the point where they’re almost unrecognizable. Most recently, fans mourned the apparent loss of Bioware. The genius [developer] was behind Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect, but the way newer titles like The Old Republic and Mass Effect 3 have been handled since EA took over has caused fans to lose faith. EA is at the forefront of some of the most annoying practices in the industry to date, such as restrictive DRM, seemingly abusive DLC and appearing to trade creativity for cash.”

Are you crazy? Fixing bugs that were reported? Pfft! (Couldn't agree more with you, reported a graphic bug with the jedi knight legacy armor, checked it on live yesterday and whoops! The bug wasn't fixed -.-)

They wanted 1.2 to be tested but didn't allow everyone to char copy, fail. As they wanted to test rated warzones there were less than 8 50s on the fleet yet they said the testing was fine?

To be honest, every ticket I've opened since the game went live was just some generic answer completely ignoring what I was saying. On the beta they at least answered regarding the topic, now it's all generic no matter how detailed the report is. Since the beta I've spent hours reporting bugs, by now I might as well give up.
Good players don't complain, they adjust and improve.

yes but .. you are committing many serious errors in every patch process since the game has been launched.

No excuse , you should work more closely.

Most of us know everything will be restored.

Most of us recognize that BW is still new in this genre and is making the same kinds of mistakes most other MMOs have made.

Most of us just ignore threads like these.

For some reason, I'm being stupid and responding. I'm sure I'll regret it.
Just realized I did the stupid thing, too.

It's a joke tbh, working in IT if my guys released a software or server patch to production servers and systems and it failed badly heads would roll. But then again, you'd expect QA and UAT to be done properly and signed off, not to mention going through change control approval and then having a very speedy roll back plan with timings, not just a 'um things are broke, lets take everything offline and leave people hanging'.

And just because this is a game it makes no odds, everyone is still a 'paying' customer - paying for something that they can't currently use or use properly, paying their wages working on this project. Unhappy customers and unsubbing customers = lost revenue = lost jobs. Oh and also taking every single server offline at the same time and downing the entire platform is just plain stupid, even if you have a crazy amount of engineers to patch each server at the same time (highly unlikely). Why not schedule the work on batches of servers like most sane people would?

Why is it no one can get these MMO releases right?
