As someone who's only returned to SWTOR recently, it was nice to see all the planned updates in one place. I like that there's going to be a road map every 3 months. Actually, I prefer that over one road map at the beginning of the year that will likely get outdated as the company changes their plans and releases get pushed back, dropped or changed.

Reading the reactions from other people on this thread... I didn't realise that much of this was already said so I understand how some people can be disappointed. I know players were eagerly waiting to see the road map and expected more details about the year ahead rather than what they already know about the upcoming three months. So that kinda sucks. There's a little bit of detail there that goes beyond the summer but not really enough to sate players' curiosity, IMO. Hopefully Keith will see this and maybe give us a little more.

Otherwise, I look forward to the next road map at least. It's a good plan overall and it's nice to know that they're planning that far ahead and that they want to listen to the players and take into account what we think.

Nightlife Event ... more standing around clicking a button waiting for RNG to give up something good. Ugh.

Vague map possibilities for pvp and gsf...meh

Ops info we already knew

A Manaan SH ... good, but not news

A single flashpoint ... OK, I guess, but again not news

Customization of companions is definitely positive ... unless it is literal customization slot crap you pre-design and not me actually dressing my companions how I want in the hundreds of cartel sets I've collected.

I don't know. Seems like a lot of vague ideas of stuff they're thinking about but haven't actually set a plan to implement. When I do road maps at work, it's all about laying down what must get done and how we plan on doing it and not how we're going to think about what we're maybe going to do and soliciting ideas.

B for effort, C for content.

I would have liked to see more regarding Galactic Command/Crate reform. However Legacy (Unassembled) Tokens is a welcome change.

New PVP maps is also good news.

Well here are my thoughts on the road map Keith.
Operations- While we already knew that Gofm would be released through out the year it is good to know that you've included platinum rarity items as an extra reward for doing veteran and master, one of the many complains I hear from SWTOR is how much of the "Cool" items are always locked behind the Cartel Market instead of earning it.

PVP- Legacy currency is great, and so is a new map, it will greatly help to gear up. Good to know GSF changes are being though of.

Story and companions- While I'm disappointed I have to wait 2 more months until the story continues it's good to know we will finally be able to customize KOTFE companions and gain influence from doing crew skills missions, one my major complaints with the removal of commendations isn't even gear but companion gifts which could be bought with those, now we rely on the RNG of crates (Either alliance or command) to gain companion gifts and it can be a stress to farm a specific companion.

QoL-Good to know about weapon tuning being added to collection.

Update- 5.2 I'm looking forward to that casino event and gaining a Gamorrean companion, it would be quite useful for a BH or Smuggler. While I haven't played GSF in months it's good to know new customization options are being added. I hope the legacy perk is more than 10% or so. Good to know armor will be craftable, it's quite a good way to make crew skills relevant. Tier I being able to be bought with command tokens goes a long way to help gear up alts or even mains.

5.3 Looking forward to that encounter, hopefully it will contain quite an interesting fight just like Tyth. Manaan stronghold? While I'm not personally going to buy it's good to know that, perhaps I will grow fondle of the sea. Class changes in PvP are a must.

And it's good to know we will have better communication this time around, I will do my best to provide you with constructive feedback. Thanks for providing the quaterly roadmap and may the force ever serve you Keith.

Yet again, you don't say what you mean by 'customizing' Theron and Shae. Does that mean only being able to plug a customization into the slot that's BEEN there, or are we going to be able to change their entire set of clothes piece by piece?

So no mention on what your plans are with dead servers and players with their guilds stuck on them, well unless they all spend a enormous amount of cartel coins.

I don't know what to expect when you devs make the claim of a new "PvP." Since you continuously misrepresent giving us "2 new PVP." There was 2 new PVP maps. But only one new match type. The second "PVP" is an arena map. So @Kieth @Eric what makes a PVP? Will we be getting a new battle ground? Or just a new arena map?

Please clarify Devs

We will be posting on a very wide range of topics, everything from new content to the reinvigoration of existing features. Look out for these posts every Wednesday (if that changes, we’ll let you know in advance).
Is it safe to assume that potential server population fixes will be one of these discussion topics?

As much as it was vague the promise of the return to an MMORPG feel and a return to guild and group content got me to resub. Time to re-gear the Sith Assassin Araloak. I look forward to the future.
