Can't we all just agree they did it in advance with the HK helmet and be grateful?
the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Peace out.

Every time Bioware does do an April Fool's joke, people ***** that 'oh man they're wasting their time on stupid **** and could be making raids and pvp warzones and class balances and omg fix bugs!!!' So when they don't do an April Fool's Day joke, we get turds that complain the game is dying.

No, YOU think the game is dying because they're not catering to YOU.

Every single year I see 'omg game is dying!'

We're going into year 5, game hasn't died yet. Please, stop complaining. Wait for the goodies. They'll come, they'll just come slowly. I mean if you can do it faster, start writing the code and send it to Bioware, I'm sure they'll be ever so grateful.
Bioware, please remember our companion spouses when doing new expansions. I want scenes, letters, or something from them, saying they're worried!

You're professor is there to teach, video games are made for entertainment. April fool jokes are usually entertaining.

Last year's April Fools day joke was actually really good, It even inspired a regen "mount" the Kie Ziken Log speeder. It was something that literally probably took them an hour or 2 to draw and color and someone else an hour or so to put a story with,

No they didn't "waste their time" this year, the problem is that they have done an April Fools joke every year except this year. That sends the doomsayers a message. Quite honestly, even though I still love this game, it sends a similar message to me to.


They should have done something, anything. Anything to give at least part of the community a laugh and a glimmer of hope that they are still doing SOMETHING with this game. Instead, silence...

kind of what I was thinking. Although disappointed (lead to me suggesting, and them implementing the log regen last year) I guess we can live with it or complain. Its the unexpected ones that are the best.
ya'll know what this is (hint yes its a referral link)

I would have been surprised of they actually had done an April Fools joke this year.

There's been quite a bit of flak surrounding problems with TEC and the test server. I would go out on a limb and say that if they DID do an April Fools, backlash would be significantly greater than if they DIDN'T.

They sent out an email containing the April 1st joke, but nobody saw it because we don't know how to use spam filters and it's all our fault.

You realize they always could do both right? make meaningful content with class balances while also throwing out a little April fools joke. I suppose if they don't have the manpower to do a April fools joke... then they obviously need to step up there game to show how dedicated they are through meaningful content, by the way... which we lack of.

Be honest... the KOTFE story is actually pretty good on the JK and SW class, but feels completely shoehorned with others, especially the smuggler. If there was a satisfying amount of good content, such as operations, PVP maps, the EC, people would be less inclined to complain, but since we have NONE of that, and no April fools joke, we start to wonder were all the hard work is going.

Some people believe that, however not everyone. I believe the game is dying due to the fact the amount of content, and the quality of the content pales in comparison to what we had at launch. Even ROTHC and SOR had more to offer right now at launch, as they catered to multiple groups, and the quality of them were actually pretty good imo. If there going to only cater to one group, fine, but better make that content artifact trade, and it sure isn't for any other class than the JK.

Hopefully the wait will be worth it, but I'm a bit skeptical of EA recently.
