Very excited and intrigued about the new companion! Galaxy spanning quests? New mechanics and cross faction necessary? Ooohhhh that sounds cool...
Keep making the game challenging and giving me reasons to log on folks... I'm having a blast!

I'm sorry but why even choose the questions which you will give the "sorry we're staying tight lipped on this" response.

I'm sure there are more questions out there that you can answer.

If people want to roll both sides becuase thats what they want to do, thats completely there choice but dont force us to do it...
Please post a photo of one of the following:
1. A firearm to your forehead or
2. A knife to your throat or
3. An explosive vest strapped to your chest.

Until you can provide one of those, you cannot say that anyone is "forcing" you to do anything. Just because something is in the game does not mean you HAVE to have it.

My only real issue with 1.3 is smart aoe's for tanks. I'll admit I've never played an assassin or shadow tank but is it that hard to hold threat without using wither near cc'ed enemies?

Kingofthebritons: In last weeks’ announcement, we learned that the level cap will be increased later this year. With this change in mind, will any changes be made to the current PvE endgame? For example, will the difficulties for Hard Mode Flashpoints and Operations be increased to match the new level? If not, could you explain why?

Daniel: We’re keeping a tight wrap on details about the level increase later this year until we’ve done far more testing. Right now we have plans and theories but no empirical numbers for what, if any adjustments will need to be made to PvE endgame content.



This right here is why most people dont care about these weekly Q&A sessions, you basically said: we are picking this question to answer so we can say 'we are not answering this question'

Can you tell us if the Advanced Magenta War Hero schematic is in the game? Is it in the Lvl 6 PvP Crafting Boxes?

Yea players are being punished by making us roll on both factions. I hate the republic side... It is so lackluster and boring. It is their way of forcing us to play it to fix the imbalace in imp/republic faction numbers. Its an epic fail on biowares behalf. I mean really... Punish your player base to fix their problem? Now thats great customer service.

They better change this terrible requirement because it leaves sooo many people in the dark. Especially those who already have 8 char slots filled with one faction. Clearly no forethought or regard for their player base with rhis decision.

What Imbalance? Where's your stats and proof to back this up? Lets see the hard numbers you have from mining the SWTOR databases.

This is a reward for those who have taken the time to explore more of the game; not to punish those who have taken a narrow view of it.

Don't blame Bioware for your lack of vision.

This is the best solution in my opinion (did anyone else read into the answer that it's a good idea to force disconnect if you're losing to protect your rating?)

Anyway, the suggestion quoted here has already been proposed for solving the issue of uneven unranked WZ matches (less of an issue on merged servers). I think developing the "tech" for this would be a great asset to the game.
