Will we see an expansion on the celestials or a background story for them? largely we've dealt with the rakata. but the celestials we read in the books have no mention at all. and will we also see centerpoint station in a wz or flashpoint?

With the recruit a friend system in place as well as realm changes, will be seeing other features outside of the game similar to other MMO's such as race changes (reasoning behind this was that a friend got a Sith to level 50 and wanted to make a Sith smuggler, but he already had one at 35 and would rather pay to change that than start again) or smaller things like re-customisations (Same gender, otherwise I can foresee this messing with companion relationships) or legacy name changes, whether they be free or most likely cost a little bit?

Q. Based on previous statements for PVE (where you said you didn't want certain classes effectively excluded from group content because other classes were deemed to be superior) will you be taking the same approach to PVP balance? Currently ranked WZ setups are only looking to take two DPS classes and one healing class almost exclusively.

Is there any plans to allow classes that do not have access to Black Hole level offhand weapons from the fleet vendors to obtain them?

Several months ago class balance changes were made at a smaller and more frequent rate, however, since 1.2 all class balance changes have been made within or around the major game updates (1.2 and 1.3). Will this pattern of class balance changes occurring every few months within the major game updates continue or will we see a return to some more frequent, albeit smaller, changes? Do you feel longer drawn out balance changes can have a negative impact on gameplay such as ranked Warzones when certain classes/specs seem to be out-performing others, forcing certain playstyles/compositions upon teams in order to stay competitive at the highest level?

I used to play Starwars Galaxies and one of the best features was the space combat simulation, are you planning on bringing space combat simulation to the old republic and being able to buy new space ships?

In 1.3 Juggernaut's lost the ability Unleashed, which reduces the reuse timer on our CC breaker by 15/30 seconds, will we be given a replacement to bring us back in line with the other classes in the form of a new ability or having it added into an existing skill?

with the latest updates ranked warzones have been introduced is there a chance that swtor will have an e-sport element with tournaments ? Huttball would prove to be really unique in that department

Will you put any more minigame into the game like pazaak or swoop race in the close future?

Are there plans to extend on the legacy system beyond purchasable 'perks'. e.g. story based missions available to each character involving "family members" based on class, faction, dark / light alighnment, who they are to your character in the legacy etc rather than a headshot on a family tree
