3) In the end, though, I'm glad that a first step has finally been taken in regards to SGR content, and I'm looking forward to seeing exactly how it is handled... as well as future announcements regarding further content.
Ah, you said it better than I ever could. That is exactly how I feel about this whole thing as well.

I've watched your posts in dealing with some of the more touched of the trolls. You are my hero, Jedi.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year BW: Austin! I hope that the 9 months of dead silence on the issue was worth it.

In my humble opinion, the fallout wouldn't be so bad if they had addressed this sooner. The silence led to all of this; the anger by the pro-SGR community and the outrage of the trolls. Perhaps if they had mentioned that it was still coming openly and publicly prior to this point and after the Guild Summit, players would have gotten used to idea. They probably wouldn't have freaked out so sodding bad after Mr. Hickman talked about in his SotG.

My favorite forum safe word of the day: Sod. Thank you DA: O for that.

I would still like SGRA content on par with companion romances.

I have been thinking about this and initially I thought that SGRAs with Makeb NPCs would mean side quest givers with which you have 2 conversations with. Something like...

Quest Giver: "Hey, can you help me with a life or death matter that involves traveling to this section of the map, killing ten mercenaries, and retrieving five data pads from crates littered around the area?"

PC: [Flirt] "You have pretty eyes."

Quest Giver: "Will you help me then?"

PC: "Sure."

*PC completes quest and returns*

Quest Giver: "Thank you so much for obtaining those really important data pads."

PC: [Flirt] "Can we haz sex now?"

Quest Giver: "Yeah, sure."

*fade to black*

Yeah, I'm hoping it's nothing like this...but a romance with an NPC that plays a role in the main story for Makeb (and has a few encounters with the PC) could be decent. I'm thinking something like Watcher 2 for the IA or a character like Sgt Jaxo in the Trooper story.

I'm happy. It's not like they just suddenly decided to put this in. They've been working on this material since shortly after launch, they said this was coming, but the new regime that came in last spring doesn't like to talk to the players much. That's the big issue I have with them right now. It's not limited to SGR.

I thought the general attitudes of people here were far more positive than 90% of the reactions I read to various things in general chat over the last year. Example: 1)People cry about full servers and queues at launch, they make more servers -> Servers die down, people cry about empty servers -> Server merges happen, people cry about full servers -> some people still complain that the servers are too empty -> people unhappy about having to name change because of server merges -> people use the server merges to bash the game as a failure

Or hey "BIOWARE! WE NEED NEW CONTENT!" *ROTHC announced* THAT'S NO EXPANSION BIOWARE, I'M NOT BUYING IT!"

You can't win.

This should be the official song of MMO players http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZEDu-a3wws

Honestly, I think that once ROTHC is actually released and people see just how much they don't actually have to get involved in a gay relationship, nobody will care anymore. Nobody should ever have found this to be a big deal in the first place and it wouldn't have been if it has just been in at launch like it was supposed to.

To those saying those opposed to SGR should have no voice, they do just like you do.
You know in the very same game status report that announced SGRAs they also addressed server transfers.

I'm wondering if this means some of our first SGR flirts are going to come from brothel workers. That would send an interesting message to be sure. I have to wonder; is the Hutts the excuse for SGR flirts?
Hopefully, they won't just make the flirt options be ones with Hutts. Since they're actually hermaphroditic, it could be argued (albeit only through insane troll logic) that a flirt with one would count as SGR material. Also, it would be completely gross.

Ick! No, I don't think they'd go that far. Unless they put it in for OGR, but that would probably be for a joke. Thanks to the movies, especially Empire, I never ever want a Hutt touching me even via a video game character.

I think it's going to be the brother workers and not the Hutt owners that it'll have SGR flirts.

Calling it now: One of the first female SGR flirts is going to come from a Twi'lek "dancer" that works in a Hutt pleasure palace.

Personally, I'd find a flirt option with a Hutt to be hilarious. I kind of hope there'd be one just for humor's sake. I doubt there's really much of a tie-in with the hutt's lifestyle in the SGR options. We're probably going to be working with envoys of the Hutts as well as our faction leaders, and they did mention that we could actually swear loyalty to the Hutts. To what extent, I do not know.

Eh, I know, but I still find it a little suspicious that they were planning to release it in an update that is centered around gangsters that run brothels. But I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Just floating around some ideas since we've got that update.

Ha, there should be a Hutt quest giver that flirts with every player in either the slave girl costume or one of those invisible shirts.

Working as an envoy to the Hutts is perfect for my LS Sniper. She's gone freelance, so I can see her taking up what work she could.

Hmm... if the SGR-able NPCs are in a brothel, does that mean there'll finally be a male dancer outfit?

It would be great, but I think the invisible shirts are supposed to the answer to that. There is some potential there, however. Hopefully they'll take more full advantage of that idea.
