As a programmer, I can tell you, all we really need is maybe a little mountain dew. Oh, and love.

On topic: Well, it's 'tomorrow' now, Mr. Reid.

Some people can't progress through companion stories, some people can't progress THEIR OWN stories properly, certain classes are clearly OP, some quests are broken, end game raid content needs work, some people can't even PVP due to some unknown FPS problem and you want your precious textures. And then some will say "well why did they launch if the game wasn't ready, etc" BECAUSE THE FANBASE WOULD HAVE **** A GIANT BRICK if the date was pushed back. There is no pleasing the fanbase. Anything done will negatively effect someone and there has to be priority fixes.

Honestly, I'd rather they fix imbalances, quest bugs, and companion issues over my textures/AA because it is not a make-or-break sort of thing for me. For some others, it may very well be and in that case you should leave, like I've said before, and save your month or two of precious moneys until they integrate such a pivotal and necessary function.
Because just one guy is responsible for all of the bug fixes, art, class balance, quest structure and progress, and game mechanics, right?

Thinking that their process is a single, looping line of Problem In -> Thinking, Fixing, Implementing -> Solution Live is absurdly short-sighted, and incorrect.

That isn't even a viable comparison, lol. We are not talking about FPS/latency/whatever here. If you bought a sports car and they showed epic pictures of said car and you went to the dealership to buy or test drive and the car wasn't as shiny as the photos... maybe.

We are talking about basic standars here, that are since years for games, which go without question and this is just lol (highest setting, beast machine):

Can't really take you seriously after lines like that. Is that how you pay for the game? I use my paycheck. Please stop trolling and wasting time here.
Bioware - Please stop advertising with high resolution textures if they are impossible to implement in the retail client.

When did I ever say that ONE GUY LOL was responsible? I never said that. And I never said that a problem was linear in solving either. I said that there are a crapload of other issues going on at the same time that SHOULD have higher priority in regards to implementation in a patch or what have you than other issues.

I never said I get food stamps/welfare. Man, you people aren't even quoting me right anymore. Take a look at America as a whole and tell me I'm wrong, unless you live in white suburbia where lawns are trimmed with rulers and Mrs. Smith would never lay a hand on those children of hers.

Did it ever cross your mind that specific ppl only work on specific stuff at bioware? There are engine programmers for this thing, who fix it for and other that specificly work on stuff you want fixed. This company is big with lots of diffrent departments.
