Vulkk is pretty awesome and far from casual but I can't really speak for anyone else. I just remember loving his solo runs in HM flashpoints and stuff back when it felt like gear mattered outside of 10% of the game's content.

While I don't know all the influencers, Vulkk and SWTORISTA I've definitely noticed. Vulkk for his website and SWTORISTA for Reddit.

Crazy. Didn't you interview a dev in 5.7 (or around there) on your twitch?

You've got to be kidding me......is this true??
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

This is a screenshot I took of some of the requirements, if you've ever seen my stream it'll be pretty easy for you to work out why I wouldn't be suitable.

Any forum regular who's casually aware of your content knows why you aren't an influencer. You're not a Biodrone apologist and you don't shill for them constantly. You basically have to blindly defend every decision they make to be an influencer. Anything you're too critical of will make you ineligible.
Game is memes xd

They need to better define "kept to a minimum"...I mean, compared to some, you're damn near saintly

Honestly, they need to make more exceptions for people that deserve to be heard.

Yep. Fun Fact: SWTOR forums has more content releases than actual game.

Eric Meowsco's prolific posting today is actually 6.0. gg

To try to calm any tin foil hats spinning up from that image you linked, let me try to provide some context. The reason you cannot find that post anywhere on the forums is because it came from our Influencer forums. For those that don’t know (and we have a blog in the works for this very topic) we have something called the Influencer Program. This group contains content creators of all sizes who we aim to support via promotion, etc. One of the components of the group is that they have access to a closed, under-NDA forum where we sometimes seek out early feedback on things, address questions from their communities, and more.

The image you are linking to is from a specific topic that was brought up by some folks in the group. They were looking to get into creating content for Anthem in addition to SWTOR and were asking for similar support/access to what they have in our Influencer program. What you are seeing is my response to that request. There are a number of EA-wide influencer programs, most prominently the game changers group. We built our own program for SWTOR separate from that as we had very specific benefits we wanted to provide. As a result, being in our group doesn’t automatically mean that someone receives those same benefits on other EA or BioWare titles. So all in all, this post is really just me directing our influencers who are looking to expand into other EA games to investigate the EA game changer program.

That is the full context of that post, so I hope that clears up any concerns.

So we can expect to see a road map, somehwere in the future with more empty platitudes?

Since kotet and kotfe the amount of content you, the Studio. has released can be seen as a joke. just talking in terms of quantity, since quality is not a subject that should even been brought since everything after ziost was pile of horse dump.
Swtor ruined after 4.0

You know... i wonder what you hope to accomplish with such posts.

You are attacking the last people still fighting for the game you love. It would be so easy to just pull the plug, but here they are reading this topic.

I agree with the topic. There is still huge potencial in this game. But, the best way to revive it would be to make a SWTOR2. Even if it's with a new engine. There needs to be something to re-spark the mass media and gamers interest. There is still a lot of untapped potencial here and many good lessons were learned.
I think the game design is great atm, but it's missing the players and obviously the regular content support.

One of the things i enjoyed the most about the game were the warzones. The huttball and the big battles. I was shocked to queue to a warzone these days and it being a 4v4 arena best of 3. The game is here, the infamous ghost GCD bug was finally fixed. It just feels like it is too late though. We need a reboot of some sort to have players come back and see how enjoyable it can be again.

I don't have the perfect antidote, as i'm not in the company know. But it is undebatable that SWTOR is an untapped potencial.
