If the 4th pillar falls then it'll be like any other mmo and I fear that many will grow bored.

I doubt bioware, lord of the story based RPG, will allow that to happen.

I <3 my imperial agents story... SO MUCH.
Ganking leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to pvp.

Personally, I'm really glad you guys are going for an initiative of greater visibility. Vote of confidence from me!

I hope you've seen the other thread I've started about in-game community issues and the really great suggestions that people have made over there about how to improve in-game community.

Do you think that some of these folks you've mentioned, with all the characters they play, would be interested in planning some live social events with players? That would be awesome.
House Arn on Lord Adraas. Currently composed of Tyfe (a Jedi Sentinel) , Wilfryd (a luckless roustabout Scoundrel), Erryl (a Trooper who eats his chunky soup and defends his Republic), and Therys (a mean old Sith Sorc with a meaner past).

Well as someone who has been down in the dumps about the game lately, this is welcome news. One thing I was really unhappy with was the level of communication around here. This seems like a definite step into rectifying that. Actively collaborating with the community on all aspects of the game ultimately leads to a better overall community. I am a firm believer of that.

Oh and can you pass on to Mr. Ohlen to STOP overhyping everything coming to the game. Im pretty sure that has helped create the anger of the playerbase.

I'm flattered, but my characters must remain secret, so I'm afraid you'll never know the answer!

We don't have to know, but if anyone on your team can join The Fatman and help us Imps(without us knowing who they are), it would be most appreciated. There are so many bad players on the Imp side now. Please help those players become better.

To be fair, he might not be hyping. He might just genuinely be excited about what he is talking about.

Too few people really love what they do and I think it might be possible that Ohlen is one of them.

We shouldn't condemn him for enjoying his work.

Nice to have some news, and it's cool to see you have ingame characters. On some MMO we feel like the staff is not playing their own game (AOC is one of them, except some staff member, they seems to be playing something else). Also, some nerf are really bad for a class, and makes people think it's because you're not playing the class, and don't know how it works. Commando/merc nerf comes to mind.

Just a question, there is 2people in your staff without AC (Eric Campbell as inquisitor and Eric Musco as trooper). Does that mean they play both AC, they are still trooper/inq at lvl 50 (quite the challenge IMO), or they are still on the first planet ?
Another one, do you guys play the server we use, and are "undercover" inside some guild, not saying they are part of the staff, but enjoying the game the same way we do (like Eve online staff), or do they have a special guild (like GW staff) ?

Anyway, hope you have flame shield guys, it will be needed.

I didn't say I wasn't excited or that I know what is going to fix the game and how, I simply said that you're acting like this is the saving grace of the game, as if all problems are going to fade away into myth and memory simply because you know Joveth on a first name basis now. They aren't going away simply because of a few introductions that weren't requested or required, you just seem to be gushing all over this announcement when nothing productive has come from it yet, just give it a few weeks and see where it takes us.

Am I hoping for the best? Sure am. Do I expect this to be the catalyst of big changes? No, not at all. You're the one assuming that I have extreme expectations and want release dates, yet you can't reign in your own hopes for a minute and realize that as of now, this has done nothing for the game.
You only speak for yourself. I asked for names and faces. I may think this is the saving grace of the game. And why do I have to "reign in my own hopes"? Perhaps this one thing has done immense things for the game, for me.

Your statements are not fact, but opinions, and will be treated as such.
No flames are necessary, you are already roasting in the fires of your own stupidity.
