I appreciate the effort, and I don't mean to be a negative nancy, but I don't think a change.org petition will change anything especially our current predicament in regards to the tight budget this game receives. However if we were to do a social media campaign to bring awareness to the issue, perhaps even bringing an influx of new players (Giving Keith the excuse he needs for an increase in the budget) I'd be all for it. I'm singing it but I won't hold my breath if EA doesn't listen to us, again.

I would really like this, hopefully if Anthem is successful EA might decide to give more resources to Bioware for other games like TOR.

6.0 will be a great start to change things for the better.
Free stuff, 7 days free, and more!

I wish you luck with this, but I'm not holding out any hope.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I agree the game deserves far more dignity than it's been given. The fans and players deserve better too! Even the devs who work hard on the game yet clearly lack resources to make it as good as it should be deserve to be given a real opportunity to have something to feel proud about making.

I also have said many times in past threads that they are sitting on the most powerful sci-fi IP of all time, to put this game on a back burner is not only mystifying but plain wrong. So much squandered opportunity if they continue the game down this path. They literally are sitting on a gold mine and seem oblivious to this fact.

I will go check the link you provide here in the thread.

EDIT: I signed it. Hey, I recommend you also go to all the servers and broadcast on fleet, etc. Try to get the word out to sign it for maximum exposure.

Use Facebook or w/e social network platforms you have available too. I don't use social networks, but clearly that's the route to take to reach as many people possible. You probably already understand this.
I know we don't always agree and that we have clashed at times verbally, but I appreciate this a lot, especially your reaction to it I know it may be naive, but still, it's something!

I've already tried to reach out to SWTOR content creators but haven't received much of a reply yet. One of them sadly declined to help getting this out and about. I've also made a post on Reddit, but so far I've been most successful in the Discord servers I am in.

Anyone should feel free to spread this around as much as they can and wherever they can. Even if you don't believe it will work or doubts how effective it will be, spread it around! The more people sign it, the more noise it will create, I hope. And noise has to be heard sooner or later

While I love the idea of this as crowd funding/petitions have made games into some great things. 100 signatures will not wake up EA and make them want to develop more on this game. You have to set your horizons a bit higher otherwise this petition will get lost in the dust.

Yea, you'd want to atleast set it to 50,000-100,000. I commend you though, I'd love to see a revival of the game and some of the old unfinished content, finished

Oh the 100 signatures goal is automatically generated by change.org instead of me :P I bet that if 100 is reached it will say "let's get to 200". Baby steps, but still steps.

I absolutely agree, for it to make noise it will need a lot of signatures. Only then will it generate enough noise for anyone higher up to notice it. After all, the higher you sit the more difficult it becomes to hear the rest of us :P

But the potential for a great revival is absolutely there, the only things that's needed is EA, Disney or both of them to step in and increase the amount of funding, resources and manpower!

This is the important point. I think it's fair to say none of us have much hope in EA doing anything to help this game, but it hurts nothing to sign the petition and if anything it will show how many people actually do care.

People love to say the forums are a "vocal minority" and like to try to minimalize the voices of those who post here, if anything this petition could actually show a true indication of how many people do care for the game and want it to be given a chance to improve.

I am curious how many people will sign it. Sure would be funny if in the end it ends up with hundreds of thousands of votes.

All it takes is a few seconds to sign it there is nothing lost in any case, but there can potentially be gained something. It's not a guarantee of course, but the opposite isn't a guarantee either.

It's my hope it will gather as many signatures as possible! So please, feel free to spread it around as much as you can and wherever you can! It will cost you (in a general sense) nothing, except a few seconds
