You already know what needs fixing..

I think itís imperative that Bioware add a virtual portion to the conference so that guild leaders do not have to travel to Austin for the event. They are going to get a lot more participation if people donít have to fork over 1000ís of dollars in travel fees just to participate in a user feedback session.

They donít have to open it up to everyone on the internet. They can still limit the virtual participation to pre-selected guild leaders. Just allow the guild leaders to participate virtually via streaming and webcams.

Big giant waste of money, resources (which is also money and time), time, and money.

Seriously, what does Bioware hope to accomplish? Are they really on the fence about what players want? Do they really expect people to shell out airfare or what have you to basically brainstorm ideas with the devs, and NOT get paid for it, like an employee would?
So now you expect your customers to pay travel fees, and lodging prices, to repeat what they've already told you, and what is wallpapered all over these forums.

It's bad enough we need to "suggest" the basic amenities of mmorpg gaming for free on these boards.

Now they want a mini-convention with select guild leaders? Can you possibly alienate your players more?

Is this really the best use of developer time? It almost seems like someone hasn't told them about one of the millions of online methods for communication, and this is the only way they can come up with, to interact with players.

You know what message this sends to the players Bioware? It tells us that everything we've said here on the boards, amounts to jock, and that even after you've been force fed feedback of all kinds, you still need some ridiculous stunt.

I suggest you guys don't do this because you are going to get flamed so bad for what state the game is in right now. I would say fix the game(hint hint guild features hint hint) features first and do some nonsense like this.

Pay my own way?

That doesn't give me much incentive as an Australian to travel and participate in your guild summit.

What a stupid idea.

"Hey, lets make the vast majority of SWTOR players feel even MORE isolated from the developers by having GUILD LEADERS come talk to us!"

You guys are a bunch of clowns.

Anyone else imagine Grima Wormtongue, whispering false council into the collective ears of Bioware at this point?

Seriously, it's like they have some kind of monthly "bad idea quota" that needs to be filled.

I really hope this isn't like the SOE guild leader summit....the game ended up being dictated by a few Raid Or Die elitist guilds and the PVE Non-raiders were shut out.
