You're giving them to much credit expecting a whole minute, I'm expecting a 30 second KOTOR style return where the companion speaks but I don't. Anything better than that and I'll be surprised.

So a few weeks ago it was said that this will be released in a few weeks. I would very much like to know how long I'll have to wait for more content/stuff that's on the horizon. Get me pumped up about SWTOR future, please. I want something to be excited about. Right now we are in limbo. I don't like limbo and I'm starting to become interested in other games (which is bad because I then will have to decide who gets my money)

(The anticipation on the current story is killing me, please I needs more asap! I want Theron back. )
Thank you to everyone who has used my referral link over the years and to all of the wonderful people I've met on here.

- maybe one or two new uprisings?

5.7 mid december
- the last two ops bosses
- lifeday event

Any other ideas?
I heard the whisperings of an xpac drop in Dec via a podcast but nothing confirmed. Hints only

While I do want more content, I hope that we don't get another level cap increase. Heck, it's been 9 months since launch and I am still grinding gear for my main, and still don't play may alts as much I want to because my gear is as good as I want it to be, and I jut can't justify playing them to gear up when I still need gear for my main.

I'm curious too, it's been too quiet.

I remember that Keith or Eric posted on the forums or said in one of the streams they were guests in that the Roadmap would be released either at the end of August or first half of September. Tomorrow is the 14th, the 15th is the half of September so I have a very strong feeling the Roadmap will be released tomorrow or on the 15th itself. A little bit more patience peepz and we'll know what's in store for the game for the next quarter!
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

Some politeness would do wonders for the PVP people :P
I agree with this. Personally what would make me pvp is if it felt more like SW Jedi Academy. As a pvp game that was so much better, much more fun. Also, we all went in exactly the same level, we had zero reliance on who spent 200 hours learning what and reading what guides. We logged on, clicked buttons and laughed. Shorter pvp matches would help, that way if i suck, I don't feel like I've waste the time of better players by just feeding the enemy my deaths. Even the best have off days and aren't feeling it. Sitting there for 15-20 minutes of pvp or GSF when you're way off the mark will just make you quit and not go back. And, ranting and raving at a noob or whatever will just scare them off from reading the 200 hours of guides to "get good". I'd pvp if i didn't have so much to learn. Part of that is the community expectations of who should pvp.

That is a FPS game... not PVP in an MMORPG setting.
Otherwise, what is keeping the existing PVP players around if you got nothing out of it? The gear grind in an MMO-PVP setting is part of it. People that put more time into something should be rewarded for it... ESPECIALLY in an MMO setting.

If you want to play Jedi outcast or academy... go play them but they are not an MMO... and certainly not PVP in an MMORPG setting.

Well now it is the16th and they don't post anything like that on a weekend. They are losing subs hand over fist. Servers are dying and for some reason, a ranged DPS class has better DCDs than a tank because they have 1 balancing guy. Game updates that bring the servers down but always find a way to update the cartel market.

Say what you want. I did not use to be a nay-sayer. But compared to the QOL and content releases of its competitors... this game is failing to deliver and has the advantage of one of the most recognizable names/IP ever. It is being milked. I did not want to see it. I did not want to admit it to myself but that is how I feel now and do not know another way to see it. There is a very old saying: "proof is in the pudding..." I say indeed.

I have been a sub from launch-I am just tired. I have been on 2 dead servers and left there being the only one on the fleet AT PRIME TIME and given an option to "pay" to move, then this CXP and RNG trash on top of dying servers on a neglected cash cow game. But But... the cartel market works fine.

I am not seeing a return for my money. EA and other affiliated parties are a bunch of suits getting what they can. They are not giving them the budget and talent they need to effectively run this game to compete with its competitors and that is glaringly obvious.

TL;DR There are just too many hands in the cookie jar and not enough people are making cookies for this game to be effective anymore.

Be nice if they fixed all the crap caused by the last xpac, before going on to ruin more of the game with a new xpac, don't you think?
