They should have done this with Ilum until it was ready, I'm glad they are holding it back to make sure it works properly. Ergh /IcoulddosomuchbetterifIwasdevelopingitRAGEQUITUNSU BbeaVirginforrestoflife

You have handled the management of this game extremely poorly and this reflects upon you as being extremely bad at your chosen professions... With a dissatisfied playerbase removing the one saving grace for all the PvP servers and then try to buy us off with another nonsensical gear grind for WH gear is not only a bad idea but also insulting and downright disgusting..

If rateds is not added within the next week or two i foresee F2P in this games future. And this is coming from a guy who up until this point has supported this game completely..

Reasons things that don't get implemented and it's not announced until in the 11th hour:
  • It causes serious issues when trying to update the software on the servers.
  • It causes serious client-side errors.
  • It could cause a game-breaking issue with something like the Game Economy.
  • There is a SERIOUS exploit only noticed during this late time.

these are not the reasons; it's because "it's not how they want it".

While some people, as you say, might be acting as spoiled children, Bioware is acting like a very, very bad parent....

or an off-market Ponzi Scheme...

or an unreliable company...

or a bad investment.

Companies can aim high all they want, but when a company continually falls short, they should aim lower...and I think many can agree that is what's happened several times since release.
Or the slightly more reasonable, they tried until the 11th hour to impliment it but once they got that close they realised they couldn't do it for whatever reason, valid or not caused the overestimation or optimism.

While I can't give you a window into the studio other than my word, the decision to cut this feature was made very recently. There was no deliberate delay and we brought you the news as soon as it was known. It was a very difficult decision for the development team, and not one that was taken lightly. The PvP team is hard at work on reinstating Ranked Warzones right now.
Great you are not lying, just simply incompetent when its comes to QA?

Officer: I am happy to report we are out of the water gentlemen!

Soldiers: Excellent, yay, hurray!

Officer: Erm, 1 more thing. We kinda fallen into a volcanoooo....

So we dont drown, we just burn. Its really different.
You have failed me for the last time Admiral Bioware!

I'll make a DEAL with you BW......

When you decide to ROLL OUT rateds if a 150m * 250m room for death matches (AKA Arenas) comes with it then I won't leave your game.

But ATM I no longer feel like PAYING for a BETA.

Regarding the timing of this announcement, the decision was made late in our testing for Game Update 1.2, after the team had examined the data and done additional internal testing. There was no deliberate delay. As soon as the decision was made, we communicated that to you. We realize it's a late announcement, but we felt it was only fair to communicate the change before Game Update 1.2 was pushed live.

Work on re-instating Ranked Warzones has already begun, and is the highest priority for the PvP team right now. They all want to bring the feature to you as soon as possible. However, we will not compromise on quality by rushing it to launch. As Daniel said, once we are satisfied Ranked Warzones work well and are fun for all who want to take part in them, we'll launch them.
You realise that pvpers were mostly looking for 1.2 as not being forced to play with 4 pugs, right???

So, no biggie, would rather have a feature that works than one that's buggy as hell.
And there would be just as much rage on the pve side if the new raids were not put in due to bugs. And imagine if they did this and still let you get the gear, but it would just take 3 times longer than previously expected. Then imagine all the PVP features being added and only the PvE stuff was delayed.

Don't pretend for a moment that the tears from that would somehow be less than what you are seeing here.
Dear BW,
Please nerf paper and buff rock. Scissors is fine as is.
