Do we really need an answer to "will you add another quickslot" ?

Is that the most pressing matter ? No concerns about server population or engine optimization ?

I could surely use another quickslot AFTER the game stops running like total crap in PvP though.

Ever since one of the Devs said "What about Ready Checks" in the guild summit I kinda lost a lot of hope on actual thought process and thinking for game design... I can't imagine how something like that being so critical to both PvP and PvE groups was missed and only recently they thought about it. The QA are nice to have but rarely I ready questions/answers which actually give us a clear answer since most will always fall into "we will look into it" or "future development", as saying NO would ultimately make people wanting that feature leave the game.

QA = Gaming Politics, and we all trust politicians? :P

I am quite dissapointed about the fact that there will not be a barbershop added in 1.2, and who knows how far off it will be.

This is one of the features I really feel I need to have ASAP. Especially in light of the new character customization freedoms we will have with the legacy system. My main character is a Twilek, and I had to select a skin color that wasn't my first choice. The color I wanted to use for my character, and HAD on the same character during beta, was removed from the faction entirely, and is only currently available on the other side. This was very frustrating, and if the legacy system is finally going to open up that particular color, I want to be able to change my main character's appearance right away.

But that's my most pressing need for a barber shop. There are other cases where I would like to tweak the appearances of my characters, and that's simply impossible right now.

True. Not a single issue which is important in any way, seems like beancounter and nitpicker questions are more relevant than the big issues.

Next time I'll ask for something like "lightsaber on/off button color change" just to test my theory.

Edit: nvm, according to 1.2 PTS notes it'll be fixed.

I would very much like character customization - paid, Legacy unlocked, whatever.

But I don't personally care about making some in-game "Barber Shop" where you walk in and do it, like that other game. What matters is being able to open the appearance UI. I'm happy to do it from the character select screen and not in-game at all. If dropping all that extra art and NPC interaction speeds the feature along, by all means drop it.

Why would they answer questions that they ALREADY DID at the guild summit.


What a waste of time.

Dont worry , they will not be adding that quickslot in 1.2 patch. And here i thought at least something is done right. They said they are releasing it in 1.2 , its even in their preview video.
Whats the point of rescaling and unlocking quickslot bars if all we get is the same 2 at the buttom.

Bioware u should name your game Vanguard Saga of Heroes in Space. Another great game with gigantic potential fails hard because of incompetent developers who dont listen to the community. Not even an extra quickslot , really?

Hello? Dev's? Do you read these feedback posts?

If so, please send your carrier pigeons, or whatever slow form of communication you use, to your higher authority(s) so they can address these matters.

I love how they get so excited about what's coming in 1.2. In my mind all I can think is "you mean the stuff that should have been released at launch?!"

I love the game, but I can't wait forever.
