Okay i did not read the entire thing, but wasn't it one of the selling points that they were never going to do Cross server warzones, to keep the communities tight and small?

If we were to allow players to choose their Warzone before they could queue across servers, then it would negatively affect how often every player would see a Warzone – and for every player that loves a certain Warzone there is another player that hates it. The population would end up divided by their Warzone choice, negatively affecting the time it would take for a specific Warzone to become available for anyone. With cross server queuing we will still have a preference to match players of the same server, but those players who choose specific preferences such as these will likely end up in a match with players in the larger Wargroup.
on five matches i had:
5 HUTTBALL
0 ALDERAAN
0 VOIDSTAR

Your current queue system broken!

Well from reading this i really understand that bioware is living in another world when it comres to the huge faction imbalance.On MOST servers the Empire out num the Republic from 1-3 1-5. And you can tell they are doing nothing about it.No hot fixes to help the Republic faction.

If bioware were smart they would have done things like this to help the Republic factin
Wookie Smuggler
Mon calamari Trooper
Togruta Jedi

And as i said earlier in another post i knew they would not talk about
these things

Ilum= disaster
Valor farming by Empire on ilum/kill trading.
Warzones exploits/bots
Fixing the low fps and lag on the servers.
No customer support what so ever.

Maybe I don't get it, but the first question asked by Alkapwn says he doesn't want to make an alt right now because he wants to see what races will be available.

The response back was:
"Legacy is definitely not just for new characters! The species that will be unlocked in Game Update 1.2 are species currently in the game that will become available to classes and factions where you haven’t seen them before. New species are in consideration for the future but we don’t have any details to share right now. "

Sooo. He should wait? And are you saying there won't be any NEW species? Does that mean it'll be like "Twi'lek can now be a Bounty Hunter!" type deal? Instead of "You can now play a Wookie!" ..Because that's not exciting at all if it's not new races. The races we have now are boring. Sigh, kind of a let down.
Doesn't in game = entire game and not just current races available to the player? That's how I read it. i.e. wookies are already in game, so yes good chance you can play one.

You could think that, and you will have that to fall back on to rage about when it is just the current playable races that get opened up to other classes. Like he said.

It was a dev video interview from a fan site. Can't remember which one exactly, I'll see if I can dig it up. It was a British guy doing the interview from what I recall.

The general statement just restated what was said last year:

Quote:
“Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMO of this scale and size, many choices had to be made as to the launch and post-launch feature set. Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature. Because The Old Republic is an MMO, the game will live on through content expansions which allow us to include content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options.”
That last line is what is most telling. The additional romance options will come with additional companions, not existing ones. Though that is always subject to change.

I am pleased with the fact 1.2 will be full of goodies. I had wished for more (don't we all?) but I am looking forward to the upcoming improvements.

However I will continue to wait on rolling any alts, and will continue to avoid Ilum. I will probably continue War Zones, but only for *GASP* enjoyment, not for any expectation about loot or faction population balance.

Thank you for the responses Bioware! Hope this is the start of something awesome.

Alkapwn: Could you elaborate about what specific benefits the Legacy will offer? I know that I am not alone in the fact of putting off making an alt (and hence losing out on gameplay) because I wish to know what kind of character creation options will be available. All we have to go on now is "The legacy system will unlock new character creation options, including new species." Does this mean species that have been unavailable for that specific class, or that have been unavailable to play in the game as a whole?

Daniel Erickson: Game Update 1.2 will bring you the first big step in the Legacy System but it’s important to understand that the Legacy System will continue to grow, bringing new options to new characters (alts) and some fun options for elder game players as well. Legacy is definitely not just for new characters! The species that will be unlocked in Game Update 1.2 are species currently in the game that will become available to classes and factions where you haven’t seen them before. New species are in consideration for the future but we don’t have any details to share right now. Look for more specific details in the near future as we head toward Game Update 1.2.
does this mean current characters will be able to change species to unlocked ones.

if not then that really inhibits our current leveling if we will have to wait to create a new character to use the species that was not in the game at launch due to an incomplete feature
