Not an MMO feature - Having no combat log dosnt stop you from doing and completing raids/flashpoints or pvp

I would post that if this was that kind of thread. If you have a similar review from a decent gaming/PC site I'll post it in the OP. Like I said, good or bad. I love reading others "constructive" reviews good or bad.
Nothing to see here....move along...

Customizable UI
Macro support
Addon support
Dual specs
Functional LFG tool

I could keep going, but I think this covers some of the biggest deficiencies.

Standing in the Fleet trying to get a group is boring. They have a LFG tool for Warzones, they should have it for PvE content too.

Ray, you failed to deliver my possibility space.

I would say target of target as well. this is a must in any current mmo, IMO.

- No post-creation character customization
- No appearance tab/outfit system
- No environmental interaction (chairs, walls, doors, etc...)
- No faction change
- No in game events
- No Macros

That's just off the top of my head. You don't want to get into a features argument comparing the two, because quite frankly WoW currently has more - let alone compare to other MMO's out there.

Now, you can argue that Bioware hasn't had the development time that Blizzard has and that is why they are missing features, but you certainly don't want to claim that Bioware has everything.
Meanwhile, in Tera general chat -

"The sad thing is, arguing with fanbois on the forums was more entertaining than their 300 million dollar single player MMO from 2008"

Oh you poor, poor biodrone. This game is lacking a huge number of features that are in many other subscription based MMOs.

At this point, a small company like Trion Worlds has built a more stable and feature rich MMO than Bioware. That's sad when you consider the resources and IP available to each company.

Isn't this thread about reviews?

If you want to discuss finances with EA, this thread is not the place.

Positive and negative professional reviews please.

Stay somewhat on topic.
