I got in the habit of hitting a movement key every now and then for this reason. Character creation is worse though. With that, I don't think there's any way to refresh the session. It just boots you after a while, no matter what, if you take too long. I got in the habit of sometimes taking a picture of a creation in progress if I was taking a while with it, so I wouldn't forget the values.

The alt kick is in place to stop people standing at a mob spawn, and going afk, and letting the companion racking up kills.
But it is a pain when you're creating characters, or browsing the gtn. Sometimes I just hit the arrow keys to stop it logging out, but most of the time I forget....lol.
No Idea if people use these, but if so, here's my referral link

Again I didn't have that problem. I had pre-order and 1 week early access. Something was wrong on their end,where EU players couldn't get in. I had to create USA account on my pc,just to get in at start.

But just because some servers were full,doesn't mean ALL of them were. If people,who were on full servers had to wait in queue,doesn't mean everyone on every server had to wait. I think most popular ones were Tomb for pvp and Red Eclipse or whatever it was called. I stayed whole time on Progenitor, while others moved to more populated servers,since population was dropping and nothing was being done.

It was an example. Because rudeness isn't going to get you any favours done, ever. Sure, expressing constructive criticism is all well and good and should even be encouraged. Expressing insulting criticism however, is something completely different. Even if it seems as a logical thing to you, it may seem as an insult to another. And generally, the forum mods also delete posts that work in a derailing manner or are meant to bait people into a fight.

My advice? If you want to have less of your posts deleted, take a step back and try to write without spite, anger or frustration. Even if they may be strongly present, try to ignore those emotions and remain objective. The Jedi Code can guide you here

It makes you wonder how many more chances EA will give them if Anthem canít be resurrected.
Swtor is a lost cause for anything more than small DLC and ruining your fun if you start to have any.
Bioware just up and change it if you have fun and players be damned. They will nearly always choose a path the playerís donít want them to take.
EA donít care if swtor keeps losing players as long as the profit % stays the same.
I did this thing not too long ago where you answer a bunch of questions and do some exercises and you find out in which personality area you are. They have 4 basic colours: red, green, blue and yellow.
What I remember from it is that yellow is the more creative side, cooperation comes from green, structure from blue and leadership from red. It's a rough indication.

So in that context I see BW as a company that has a couple of red people and lots of yellow and green. But not nearly enough blue. So all the yellow and green come together and support each other and have endless brainstorm sessions and then 4 years later the couple of red people have to make some decisions and force people to actually get to work. BioWare Magic in these terms is the lack of blue that cause them to crunch and get that side over with.

You need people who are good with structures not just to build into the game but to run your company and teams so that you don't get stuck with your heads in the cloud all the time. With the head in the cloud thing, you also see the reason why they do not hear so well and why they have a hard time implementing changes because they again start brain storming and take too long. Also the creative types tend to care more about ideas than practical applications and what their target audience wants.

Anways, it's a rough analogy based on how I see BW operate, but can you really say I don't have a point in there?

Yeah you just keep making stuff up. Here's my deleted post minus the analogy part :

am not asuming they are pulling manpower only from Austin. I just don't care about other places,who have nothing to do with SWTOR . Take away STAR WARS from this game and what you have is Anthem to it's core. Meaning this game wouldn't survive as long as it did,if it werent for carrot called STAR WARS.

Again we WHO SUB OR BUY SOMETHING FROM CM are saying WE SUPPORT THIS GAME. I am not saying I support Anthem or Dice's SW Battlefront 2 or Respawns' Jedi Fallen Order. I am supporting SW THE OLD REPUBLIC and I expect devs to do the same.

Stop making excuses for them...then can have 200 or 2000 people. It's not my problem. It's not my problem they spent 300million + on development. It's not my problem, they had way too many servers at launch,post launch and like 4-5 years into game. It's not my problem they chose Hero engine. It's not my problem that in 8 years they didn't give us any new class.

It boggles my mind, how dead on arrival game like Anthem is getting more support than this game. Which for new players has tons of content.


And I would have no problem to pay for expansion. Real expansion. Just look , how much we already overpaid for what we got. I've been with this game on and off since start. Skipped whole cash cow Expansion of Revan.
