I would imagine there will be a number of cuts to the Dev team.

The customer base is unforgiving. It seems that Bioware missed the key point that voiceovers are irrelevant after the first time through. I have literally not listened to a single voiceover in 4 months. My spacebar gets a good workout.

It is gameplay and the content that you are playing that is relevant. The voiceovers are not.

Ranked WZ is an important part of what I want to play. I don't care much about Group Finder but it is essential. Cross server queues for WZ are essential.

Basic game mechanics that should've been in from launch. And if they were, there would be less QQ.

Anyway, what is the update on RWZ? I've not heard anything for ages. When will it hit Test server?

The moved some of the Dev team from DragonAge3 to SWTOR so I doubt there where any SWTOR dev cuts.

1.2 is now 42 days old and STILL not even 8er invite for BGs. Is there anything to say, but what the heck are you doing exactly, just drinking coffee the whole damn day? Get up and fix it, we pay good money for playing your game. BioWare no wonder why your customers are leaving..... This game has so much potential and you doing nothing with it, AND the way you handle RANKED WARZONES are totally unproffessional, AT LEAST GIEV US A FKING DATE WHEN IT WILL COME OUT. You will continue to lose subscribers cause of your seemingly unloved pvp section!!!! DO YOU WANT the PvP players (who proberly make properly 40% of your subscribers) to go away....

Da damals mit 1.2 tatsächlich nicht lösbare Probleme auftauchten, mussten wir das Ganze von Grund auf noch mal überarbeiten.

Es ist vorerst gedacht die Queue für premade 8er Teams einzubauen. Diese werden nicht serverübergreifend sein. Allerdings bestehen schon Pläne für serverübergreifendes PvP, diese allerdings in Zukunft und rechnet vorerst nicht damit. Nach den 8er Teams und einer Vorsaison ist geplant, z.B. das solo-ranking nachzureichen. Was die Serverpopulation angeht, sind dies eigene Punkte an denen wir ja arbeiten und die das PvP natürlich auch beinflussen werden. <- Transfers und Serverstruktur

Versteht bitte, dass wir euch keine Informationen geben wollen, wenn wir uns nicht recht sicher sind. Wir versuchen euch bestmöglichst auf dem Laufenden zu halten. Durch die damals auftretenden Probleme und die Neuüberarbeitung des PvP Rankings wurde der Zeitplan natürlich ziemlich durcheinander geworfen.

Ich gebe euch, allein als großer PvP-Fan, immer gerne Informationen weiter, sofern eben möglich. Ich verstehe absolut das ihr auf das ranked PvP wartet, ich trainiere mit nem 8er Team (oder eher 2*4er) schon seit Wochen ^^.

Grüße

Thats a direct quote of a German CM. Ok I know most of you do not speak my mother language, thats why I will explain a bit what he is saying:
- 8er quen with your friends will be directly usable with 1.3, if nothing serious is happening, but sadly not cross server
- Cross server will not be in 1.3 at first, it will come short after with a pre-season and Solo-ranking
- RBG will come after that
- And he apologizes for a delay in information handling. They did not wanted to post something they were not entirely sure it will happen with 1.3.

OMG! perhaps BW could get its communication team together and fire the *********** lot of them, this represents the third different story in as many weeks.

Does anyone in BW have a definitive line on ranked warzones and how it relates to the 1.3 timetable. Its gone past the point where any pvp'er actually cares much any more but it would be good to see that BW can actually manage a simple clear accurate communication that ALL BW staff can echo and that actually addresses the questions and concerns of the paying community, lest those left stop paying from sheer frustration

I must decline The german forums also have going nuts concering rated BGs, none of us knew anything at all till Bastian Thun the german CM wrote a few things. And look closly, he posted it only a few days ago, therefore we are not much more informed than you guys.
