I'd like to see 30 man raids. Are there any plans to introduce new content that require raid groups larger than 16?

So i understand the need for people to transfer servers since alot of them are dying off. but whats going to happen to the servers that get left behind? i like my toon names and my legacy and i dont want to have to change them when i transfer to another server. is it going to be based on seniority or will we roll on it or something? i guess the most pertinent question i have is if i stay on my server and everyone leaves, what am i to do? will the transfers be mandatory on some servers and if so how will name changing be decided?

With so many great planets, the playerbase is often spread all around the galaxy during questing. One side effect of this is it spreads to community out thinly Ex: x people on tatooine, y on hoth, z on belsavis. It cuts the community up into about 18 chunks( planets, fleet, ships). Are there any plans to implement an optional Space sector General Chat, like Outer Rim Chat for all people in the outer rim to talk or core worlds chat. etc?

Are there any plans to turn the Nar Shadaa casino into a venue with gambling and other games?

It's no surprise that the community in general enjoys the aspect of character customization through armor. After all, Who doesn't want to look there best when cruising along at light speed or whilst visiting there local Catina. However, currently Armor GFX quality in game is limited to a lesser quality then what is displayed during cut scenes. IE: A bright and rather charming red may appear that way during cut scenes but is displayed as a dull pink on your character and to others. There seems to be a large quality difference in what our armor is actually designed to look like and what we actually see. It's not that I'm against pink in any way shape or form ... I do hear that only real rodian's where pink. Unfortunately let's just say having a rather gruff looking character run around in a red that displays as a pinkish hue does take some explaining when he visits the local watering hole.

Are there any plans to bring the quality of cinematic textures and in game displayed textures to be more on par with each other? Using the "My Rodian wife washed my armor and forgot to remove the reds" excuse just isn't fooling many any more.

I know the question on double speccing has come by before and you guys have addressed it.

But here's another problem I feel I'm having to face with. Due to huge "adjustments" to my class (Sage), I'm forced to retain 3 sets of specs: One for PvP DPS, One for PvE DPS, One for PvE Heals. The reason why I almost stop playing PvP is because everytime I want to it's gonna cost me 99800 credits X2 (To spec and respec back)

Since you guys separate PvP and PvE gear, would there be a possibility of separating PvP and PvE specs?

How will the char transfers work with reguards to legecy?

i have just strated a new char on a new server as my current server is unplayable due to lack of population..
will i be able to transfer the char's from both severes on to 1 server .. or have i just wasted my time leveling up a new char..& wont be able to merge the 2 different legecys form the 2 servers together ?

how will this work ?? i dont mind what server im on ,even if i have to pay to do it.. but i should be able to bring all my chars to the same server.. under 1 legecy

So this "new" railed space mission is the "big plans" you mentioned 6 months ago? Way to change things in a "significant" way...

I have several questions referring to legacy unlocks in case of character trasfers between servers:
1. I purchased exalted gear set on one server and have my char transferred to another server, when legacy is below 20. Can I still wear the exalted gear with that char or need to wait till legacy on server I was transferred to reach lvl 20?
2. I want to transfer my lvl 50 char to a server where I have low level character - e.g right after first planet, so without legacy. Will I be allowed to create a new legacy immediately after transfer or need to wait until low level character finishes act 1?
3. Considering that I wait with character transfer until I reach level 50 with an alt on destination server, will legacy unlocks apply to both characters? Let me explain my question on example. I have human mercenary on low populated server. In meanwhile I reached lvl 50 with sith juggernaut on high populated one and I want to transfer mercenary there. I unlocked all conversation options with both characters. And now let me re-phrase the question - will I have both sith & human species unlocked? Will I have legacy flame thrower and legacy force choke available to both (and future) characters? Will both (and future) characters have Presence bonus unlocked by reaching lvl 50 with human and completing all dialogues by both characters with all companions?
