Because Early April could mean any time between this coming Sunday and the 15th (which is considered about the mid of the month). So you have at least 2 Tuesdays (3rd and the 10th) that could be considered part of Early April.

That's of course assuming that its not pushed back for some reason we don't know. At which point it could become Mid or Late April.

About 1.2 and beyond:

- The game was designed to have iconic classes changing: story, class skills, gear down to gear color palette.
With the gear mods we're able to blend classes appearance. Like my Juggernaut can wear BH or Trooper heavy armor.
Non force users will be able to force choke or use lightning, or force users will be able to use flamer throwers.
=> So: what now makes classes truly iconic? Why blur the frontier?


- Species have their own faction
Sith and Chiss are supposed to be empire only.
=> Why removing this limitation. Wasn't there other species you could have introduced to make the Republic more appealing instead of bending the lore?


- Star Wars is about Wars
2 very opposed faction clashing one against the other. That's the setting.
Many planets are faction restricted.
You're about to introduce same faction vs same faction warzones
=> How could possibly players pretend be at wars with the opposite faction?
=> How would players feel like belonging to a faction?
=> How could players feel at war when there's no such thing as war going on?


- Gear mods
Managing gear mods between our characters, companions and alts is tedious.
=> Why focusing on a system that is not even as good as simple appearance tabs until you, at least, get more convenient UI?


-Legacy
Players keep hammering not everyone likes to share something between all their characters.
Most just like a last name feature, different between all their characters if wanted.
=> Why keeping going against the players? Why forcing them to share a legacy title or surname if they don't want to?


-Mailbox
So you're putting it in the space ship, good.
We're mostly always passing by a mailbox to go to our space ship.
=> Why not allowing players to recall directly to their ship?


And more generally speaking:

- The lore was initially based on SW.
Jedi are, until fallen, guardian of the peace living on a strict code. They are using epic and deadly weapons.
Sith are powerfull and feared people, supposedly not lowering themselves for mundane tasks.

In the Huttball Jedi become no more than glow bat users wrestling for fame. And Sith look a bit better but even.
=> How Jedi players are supposed to feel at epic and at peace after playing a Huttball game? Do you see Yoda playing Huttball, but in a Monty Phyton movie? How Sith players are supposed to feel like Dark Vader or Palpatine?
you are reading WAAAAY too into this.

Not really. I'm just looking at the game on a global scale from it's core design to the implementation of new features. And I'm especially looking at the long term to see how things fits together.

No your more griping than anything, and thats ok. You have the freedom to gripe if you so choose.

Anyways for example Species, you gripe about lore being bended. You are aware Lore was bended long before ToR came out. There was a Miraluka Sith in KOTOR 2, Miraluka in ToR are Republic.

You gripe about the Legacy name, sure some (not all) folks don't want to share their name across all their characters on a server. But also some of us want it, I for one want it. In your argument your saying BW should take away something I want. The folks that are vocal about not wanting it are likely in the minority. Many folks likely don't care or actually want it. Now I think a good solution for those that don't want Legacy they should have the ability in options to turn it off.

I hope they actually calculate the stats correctly for a change. The current gear stats are a joke, and furthermore so is the person who calculated them.

I have had to swap mods in almost all the gear, so not only do you have to grind your *** off getting the sets, you have to pay out the *** to re-mod the gear you already have.

Really need to re-think the costs to repair, and remove mods on gear you already own. Stupid tbh..

The sets are butt ugly btw..

When I read the thread title, I thought they would be adding new class stories in 1.2.

I am disappointed that you are just referring to the content of patch 1.2.
