Do you think the SSSP is or is_not 3d free flight space combat?

Because it is very much alive and progressing, based on the info Dulfy extracted from the Germany Cantina Event.

AND... not to short sheet your bed, or pull your socks up over your eyeballs... but in that same Dulfy extract.. they made it clear in QandA that only a small percentage of their development team is working on CM content.
SWTOR... the MMO some people LOVE to HATE, others HATE to LOVE, and others simply embrace it and play it for what it is.

That is my theory on why they use yellow.



On the subject of 3D Space Combat. I think that ship has sailed without us. It was just a thought in minds of a few Devs and SWTOR Devs never really started it. They are just hoping that we someday forget about the fact that someone ever mentioned the SSSP that was only just an idea and never a plan or project.
If it was a true project then they would have mentioned more on it and maybe even shown some real images of it by now. Instead they only mentioned it like enough times to actually count it on one hand and look how long it has been since it was first mentioned.
I pretty much gave up on the SSSP. Not even sure if it would be enough to make me resub.

I will say that if they do ever make it, it will be because we never forgot about it and nagged them to much to make them give in and make something. But it will more than likely not be what we wanted. At the rate and direction they are going it would more than likely be completely dependent on the Cartel Market to do anything or experience it at all.

I think the best bet for us to experience some Star Wars Space is to just wait for the new BattleFront game by DICE and hope they add in some Space Battles.

Nice troll... I'll bite, though.

1) No. That's not how it works.
2) Is it? That would depend on how it's implemented. Besides space combat is a huge part of Star Wars and, therefore, a gaping hole in this game. It could also open up more story. That's a good thing, IMHO.
3) Right, that's why it won the poll. The second part of what you wrote doesn't even make sense.

Space combat is important to Star Wars and it would add another gameplay option. That's good. There is no negative to it. If it's not your cup of tea, do as little as possible with it. Just like any current aspect of the game that you may not like (PvP, Ops, Dailies, etc.).

So true.

On your last paragraph: that is a very good point. GamePlay options is what MMORPG's are about. People being able to play the game in multiple ways to fit their desired option of fun. For example. How many players out their do things like mostly Craft? How many just like to PVP, or vise verse PVE? How many players like to RP? How many like to just explore the game world? Or how many just joined this game because it was Star Wars? It is all in what people want to get out of the game and as it is right now so many people wanted to experience Space as part of this game. It is Star Wars after all and the main setting for it is Space. It is the one major thing that this game was Lacking out of the gate, even with its attempt at a Rail Shooter Mini-Game. BioWare thought that their idea would be one that most people liked and it turned out to not be hence its lack in popularity. Sure their are many that like it but not as many as the amount of people that want the 3D Free Roaming Space. It would bring so much to the game and would only help it. It definitely would give this game more options in how to enjoy it.

This game already has "space combat" as another option...and there's no "negative"...unless of course it costs money to produce...we, the players, benefit whether we use it or not, but EA doesn't unless it increases sales/subs.

There's some truth to that. But, they've already decided to do something, so they must think that it will add value. Personally, I agree. I think, at the least, it will keep a lot of people subbed longer. At the best, it will bring in more subs if it offers compelling gameplay that some people think this game is missing.

One thing is sure; they will not lose money doing this. It is just a question of how much more they make from it.

I would have written the SSSP off if they hadn't just rementioned it in a Cantina meeting. Of course there was no substance to it, but at least they continue to acknowledge that it exists.Some features or tease need to leak soon.

You have no idea what it costs to produce, nor any idea how much they'll recoup from the investment. Investors are a finicky bunch...

As far as them having "something"....uh huh...I'll believe it when I see it...but you're right...they do have "something"...they have people fooled imo. I hope I'm wrong...but I just keep thinking back to how they promoted Cathar for a FULL YEAR before releasing them...that was a freaking cat head...you think they wouldn't be promoting space a bit more?!
