Loved the podcast. I think Bioware is doing a great job. As a software developer, it's great to hear some of the behind-the-scenes stuff, like their approach to feature teams, etc.

For all the QQ'ers ... we *hear* you already, as I'm sure they do too. Seriously, my 6-year-old has more restraint when it comes to repeating "I want this, I want that." Server transfers are coming early summer, ranked warzones are coming "soon", and it seems like both are coming before 1.3.

What supprises me about this game/development team is they actually think anything in 1.3 is what we want? If they think this is what we want they are seriously more out of touch then I originally thought.

Honestly sounds like the augment thing is very very very similar to what they have in Tera. Hey if it works use it. Thats what Microsoft did.

A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack. Unless there are purples involved. Then it's totally OK.

Our inability to get endgame characters on PTS without having to fully grind them out is what is hindering the testing of new releases. Sure, you manually copied a few guilds over, but as we have seen time and again, it takes a much larger sample size to catch a lot of the issues. Right now the choices are:

1. manually copied guilds and people who ground out a level 50 on PTS
2. The game's full population after a patch goes live.

ohh wow no wonder game is complete crap, yet again you have devs in complete disconnect from what actually happens in game .

Yeah, because they didn't give any useful info to current subscribers, like how the LFG will work and also the tidbit about being able to add an augment slot to any moddable piece.
Yea I'll file that with all the talk of Rated Warzones in 1.2. As well as host of other things EA/Bioware has changed at last minute, or without telling the population that it changed

I stand by my opinion of the podcast is nothing more then marketing

In this episode, we sit down with Daniel Erickson and Damion Schubert to talk about what we saw in Game Update 1.2 and what we can expect as we look forward to Game Update 1.3. Also, David Bass stops by to tell us about how things went at PAX East and share some of our convention plans for the rest of the year. If you have any questions or comments about the show, feel free to let us know in this forum thread.

Thanks for listening!

Read more.
Thank you for the info and updates.

Really happy about the up coming changes.

Very excited about the group finder.

My only question about it is; will it work as a queue system like WoW third iteration of group finder or like a lobby like WoWs second iteration of group finder?

The events I mentioned on the podcast are just the ones we've committed to so far. We're still looking into returning to RTX, especially since it's right next door to us. At the very least, I'll be there on my own. Come say hi! I'll bring Taun Fawn codes!
