Hello and welcome to the official Q&A thread for questions to be answered for the June 15th, 2012 Q&A blog post.

As a reminder, we’ll be starting up a weekly Q&A blog series in which we will select questions from the community and post answers to them every Friday. We’ll have the next set of answers next week on June 15th, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!

Please use this thread to ask your question (one per community member, so make it count!). On Monday at 2PM CDT (8PM BST/9PM CEST/5AM AEST), we will close this thread, select the questions, and get answers to them for Friday’s blog post.

In order to increase the chances of having your specific question answered and to help us keep the thread manageable, here are some guidelines on asking questions:
  1. Keep your question relatively short. Background details are welcome, but don’t go overboard.
  2. Please actually ask a question. We want to hear constructive feedback elsewhere in the Forums.
  3. Use common sense – we cannot answer everything, especially on far-reaching content.
  4. This should go without saying, but be respectful.
  5. Limit yourself to one question in this thread, please. You can always ask another question next week!
  6. And finally, as a reminder, this is not a discussion thread. Do not comment about what somebody else has posted.

As development plans are always subject to change, questions about future features will often get vague answers which can be repetitive and sometimes annoying. With that in mind, the development team is more interested in questions about current in-game features or systems, or questions about why development decisions were made. You’re still welcome to ask questions about future features and we’ll continue to answer them where appropriate – just expect the occasional ‘soon.’

Any other posts apart from questions in the thread will be removed.

With that being said, please ask away!

Many guardian tanks want to know what the reason for the DPS nerf was on 1.3. (specifically on hilt-strike ,guardian slash, and saber mastery when in soresu forum)

I currently do around just under 600 DPS on boss fights currently with mostly black-hole / campaign gear with defense/shield augments.

I bought the Neutral Galactic Market for my legacy/ship because I thought I would be able to sell my items to both sides and therefore increase revenue. However, the neutral GTN is actually a completely separate GTN. As it is currently, it is extremely expensive and has no real benefit because currently so few players have access to it. What is going to happen to this legacy reward as the Hutt's take over the GTN?

When will we see multiplayer space combat in this massively multiplayer Star Wars game?

Why are the Convenience perks (Summonable Mailbox, Repair droid and respecialisation) per character rather than for the entire legacy? Also, why are they so expensive on the test server? because i see myself becoming broke every time i create a new character and buying the character perks to increase class story experience.

When will more character slots be added per server? The Legacy system - being server-specific - discourages rolling on multiple servers, so people who like to play alts are currently out of luck. I want to play every class and some classes multiple times, but that is currently impossible if you want them all in the same Legacy.
I tried leaving the forums. But the Sith Empire has returned!

In the 50-bracket there is a great disparity (AKA roflstompin') between teams in Warzones when one team is consisting of PUGS versus a team containing of one or more subgroupings. Are there plans to remedy this somehow, for example the ability to queue in a "singles only"-queue?

Assuming everything with Cathar goes smoothly, how often can we expect new playable species to be implemented thereafter?

There has been little to no word at all regarding social events being implemented in the game. Will players ever get to see fan favorite games like Pazaak, Swoop racing, Sabaac and the likes in the game?

Why is it that for Assassins you can use Electrostaff's but you cannot use any charges with it limiting your weapon ability with it, unlike the warrior who can still use each stance with the vibroswords. it would be nice to be able to change my double-bladed lightsaber for an electrostaff and still be able to use all the charges ie surging charge or lightning charge.
