Looking to start a list to help BioWare become more aware of implementing some common/basic MMO features in a future patch:

* Import+export UI / keybind / global settings across different characters / servers.
* Camera not switching back to default position while moving.
* Combat log.
* ???

Top of my head:

Camera remembering how far I have zoomed out and not having to do it everytime I zone into somewhere new.

Searchable auction house without having to go through a hundred menus.

Group PvP and not disbanding my group everytime when start/finish.

Much more guild options that are to numerous to mention.

Macros, macros, macros.

They have stated that improving the UI is a top priority to come in patches, as are improved guild features.

Not having Macros was a concious decision.

Whats wrong with doing PVP in groups? I haven't had any problems.

People complained about the UI since the very start its lazy if they are now only seeking to improve it, hell making **** moveable would go a long way.

If they are not going to add macros then there needs to be more hotbars.

Every time I queue for PvP in a group of friends it disbands us everytime we are finished, causing us to make the group EVERY time we want to requeue.

- Multiple weapon choices. (less restriction)
- More elaborate character customisation
- Choosing what PvP warzone you want to do
- Interaction with environment (like sitting on chairs)
- More variable emotes per Species/Class
- Better Darkside corruption (the current one is an embarrasment to the lore)
- Bug fixes (some gear textures for example seem to be blurred, except for in movies)

Fun is subjective, accessibility is there. I.e, you can access a server to play on. If you insist on trying to get on to a full server, then you have to deal with it. You aren't forced to queue for a full server.
Space, is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space...

One button screenshots instead of having to pay for a special version of the game. Coming from mac taking screenshots on windows is a pain in the shphincter with copy paste etc

a single key to take quick screenshots in a single folder

Pfft... so you run your toon on a particular server , make friends there,, and then start on a different server because Bioware cant figure things out... Get real,, in no other mmo are you forced off your server. And thats a fact....
