50,000 isn't that big of a deal to a company when they have over a million or whatever subs.

Most come from WoW (no offense) and this is a step up. Not much. But a step up nonetheless.

Sad thing is, I never expected this to be from a BIOware game. They have always been legit.

Most people don't see the problem. It's just a minority. Bioware, i'm sure, sees it as a minority, and will make no comment about it.

I don't know if that was sarcasm, and should be taken offensively. LOL

They have to say something, even if it's "we'll look into it."

You are right, most people wont notice the textures as an issue until they are made aware, once they do though, they just cant imagine themselves playing with the muddy crap that the game is rendering right now.

The textures are compressed crap, it makes them look worse than textures that came out from other MMOs in 2007.

Well, then their plan to simply remove the high option altogether and replace it with the medium textures will likely go unnoticed by the majority of users, which I imagine is exactly what they are hoping for and is why they left it out of the patch notes so as not to draw any attention to it.

It's more than most threads get, including stickies.

It's not 1 million but I'm sure only a minority of players actually look at these forums in general, so relatively speaking it's pretty representative when normalized.

I 100% agree. it's completely true. With a game like this from a company like this, I'd expect atleast an answer. especially if the textures were better in beta.
I expect SKYRIM quality, maybe not in graphics, but that kind of a quality game.

Minority????

Ok here are my 5 cents. Give us the option immediately in one of the upcoming patches. We know the HD textures are there, we pay for a 2011/2012 game and it has textures that are hardly beating anything 3-4 years old. This is unacceptable. And given that ongoing BETA testers HAD the HD textures and they were taken off just before the Public BETA and thus close to realease is just plain straying salt in the wound of those being long term testers. I was not one of them but can just imagine how THEY must feel as I am beginning to get really peefed about this. Is this EA influence of treating a community. This CANNOT be BioWare. Please tell me this is not true.

P.S. Put a disclaimer in the option that it is ONLY for high end PC and basta. I don't understand the fuss. Seriously........muddy textures......in a BioWare game......really?
