OK, granted. That said April is traditionally the start of the fiscal year for most companies, and considered the standard as a result. I'm sure there's a reason for this, but I've never looked into it to be honest.

Just an FYI for you - I'm not sure what their statement was hoping to accomplish either

Edit: Ninja'd by Moutlael
You' re absolutely right.

However, EA's Fiscal year actually begins in April. The official EA investor's report confirms this as well.

(We had a long, long, long thread about EA's fiscal year back when we were speculating SWTOR's release date.)

That sounds about right. I'd been overlooking the obvious.

Actually, 1.3 would be the third. Rise of the Rakghouls (1.1) was the first, Legacy (1.2) was the second. 1.3 would be the third.

Rise of the Rakghouls was not part of the fiscal year's first quarter, though.

Maybe instead of cross realm/server LFG tools they'll just let us group with all of our companions at the same time, I mean to me they feel more like "allies" the the players do
My Imperial Agent saves his trusty sidearm for those annoying cut-scene NPCs only!

1.3 doesnt have cross server LFG tools. Itll first be a LFG tool within your server.

Multiple companions is not possible as part of an update coming in the current fiscal quarter. It would require the entire game be balanced for varying player power curves. As such it's likely not possible at all, but definitely not by July.
