SGRA crowd, the biggest crowd in the last Q&A thread, has been ignored completely, again, I see.

So, not everything I wanted to see was answered either. Why focus on what wasnt answered and lets focus on what was.

They did discuss some new changes coming for 1.2 and I wish they would give us a release date or possible date for 1.2.

This will make some people happy:

Zennis: Has there been any discussion to streamlining the Space Port process? Perhaps allowing speeders in the Space Ports besides the Fleet?

Brian Audette (Senior Designer): We've absolutely heard what the fans are saying and have been exploring options to address these issues. While we are still investigating allowing speeder use in Space Ports, we've also been looking for other ways to get people from point A to point B with greater haste. One such feature will specifically affect planets that have Orbital Stations instead of Space Ports such as: Tython, Korriban, Hoth, and Belsavis. We'll be adding an option for players to go directly to their ships from the surface shuttles as opposed to having them run through the Orbital Station to their airlocks. This feature and some additional tweaks will start showing up in Game Update 1.2.

Gotta say, so far these Q&A are, well tbh, boring.

It's either on the cards, "soon tm", were discussing it.

Why not just supply us with a roadmap of what you actually are doing and a realastic timescales like 2 months/4 months/ a year etc.

Okay, I know I am being a little bit churlish and that these answers means something to some people or even many, but tbh, if this is only going to be a feature where you "cherry pick" easy questions, or supply answers as "it's coming", then I for one will just ignore them.

Sorry, I am feeling narked about Crystal colours, I'm pissed on my single malt and the wife has a headache...Again...

Ahh well, ways Seka when I need her...

Some encouraging stuff in this Q&A. I'm glad there is heavy work being done for LFG, and the ability to bypass space stations will be very nice. The mini-game and emote stuff through Legacy is also very cool. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the future is bright for this game. Unfortunately, too many doomsayers as always make things seem worse than they actually are.

Seriously. Why so many people thing that they only work on the stuff they talk about is beyond me.

Good stuff here. Some new questions and answers this time.

Do these people even play the same game we do? I've felt better playing non-US, non-English speaking games with no subscription, charge you to sneeze type games when it comes to commitment, growth, listening to their players and expansion than I see from the developers and designers of this game. Sad, they even contradict their own support staff on the forums it seems.

Any developer that does this is just asking for trouble. Especially in an MMO environment.

"This is coming soon" is the standard time-frame you'll find in a Q&A with ANY game developer.
