Wheee?
Maybe they should give all subs a mini pet in the shape of.... a bug.

Sigh, yeah, I went there.

Keith, thank you for doing this for us. Now you will keep me as a subscriber unless you really mess up. Anyways, you did the right thing, good job.

Ditto. I haven't played since the 5.4a disaster, and was waiting to see how the situation was handled to decide whether to resub/continue playing. The fact that the FP system is a joke (no healer required, auto level 70 sync) and the significantly small number of active players coupled with the fact that as a tank 1x out of ten not only is the mesh of an enemy not visible, but there is also no way to target said invisible enemy. The FPs are a joke compared to WoW/FFXIV. The coding is poor and leads to significant stuttering on integrated graphips chipsets. Had to go into BIOS and allot far too much VRAM for any game to need and then add a 4gb stick to laptop to handle system services/processes just to get somewhat smooth gameplay. Starwars fan here, but this game failing is no falsity. I would have logged back in and played more if they had compensated for the inconvenience in a way other than XP. The leveling in this game is far to fast. *insert bleh emoticon here* (two new players not resubbing, thumbs up BW, you weasled another $30 from two apparently naive adults. If I play another MMO it will be my old fave. Not going to drop it's name, but it's hard sci-fi, and it's parent company may or may not be based in Iceland.

Lol love when people critique a game or it's coding because it doesn't work well on their ****** integrated GPU.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you mean what they did for us look at the recent dev tracker posts from Keith. Well, it's more what they will do for us. If you meant what happened? They had an improperly tested patch that went wrong, creating an unscheduled maintenance that made the game go down a whole day for Europeans (because it was the entire prime time might as well been 24 hours)

From intel's website:

"Dedicated Memory Reporting
The graphics driver now reports some amount of fictitious “dedicated” graphics memory to the operating system (128MB by default) to work around applications issues in a number of games. These games incorrectly look for some amount of “dedicated” graphics memory because they weren’t coded with the unified memory architecture for processor graphics.
The amount reported can be modified or disabled if desired by changing the following registry value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\GMM, create a REG_DWORD value named “DedicatedSegmentSize”. The value is interpreted as number of MB to report (0-512MB). A value of 0 disables reporting the dummy memory segment. If the registry key/value is not found, the driver will report the default 128MB."

The key phrase here being, 'these games incorrectly". The issue wasn't hard to fix, but saying that it isn't an issue with the game's code is obviously false. All other MMOs, and pretty much every other game I've played had no issues whatsoever on low/medium settings. So yeah, you're wrong, the code is reduntant, poor object oriented programming, and a lack of knowledge of interfacing with Intel chipsets.

Everyone on here is just steaming mad about the server downtime, and I'm just sitting here playing 1 of my 3 other MMO's I play like sidechicks having a blast! XD

Get some side guys! It's not cheating if you don't get caught!
