I bet the only thing of significance we're going to learn is a release date for the announced f2p patch, if we're lucky.

Im sure they will announce more info about patch 1.4 aswell. Dont disappoint us Bioware, some of us still have faith in you, the game and the direction you've decided to head at.

Apparently the conference is already over, where can I find more info on what was mentioned about SWTOR?

Nothing much was said actually. I think they are planning to release info this Friday to us. At least that what the word is. I hope they talk soon as a lot of people are getting impatient.

No it wasn't.

They said they'd release the new raid next month, and then the other content (inc. WZ and space missions) 'Soon there after'.

This could be another six weeks away, or even more. Bioware has a horrible tendency to use the word 'soon' to convey anywhere between 1 month and 6 months.

Yeah. It was all really vague. Bioware really needs to start saying some dates. It's really been issue since launch about not saying any dates for anything. A new operation for next month, and something to follow after though is kind of odd.

And no mention about the level cap raise and new planet to quest on. Is that coming with the operation, or sometime after?

You are correct that it is "up to them", I don't think anyone is "whining" and if you are in any way invested in the success of the game you should "care where they go."

They NEED to be at Gamescon because they have a large European player base that then should continue to grow. However, C:VI would have been like shooting a large lake of target market packed fish with a nuke when it came to really leveraging the F2P announcement here in the U.S. C:VI is an audience of highly motivated potential customers for the game on a four day Star Wars "high", consuming everything Star Wars they can and being reminded of why they love Star Wars in the first place! I can't think of a better place to be for that exact reason. C:VI far more critical in the U.S. than Comicon was for the success of this game, particularly with the F2P announcement at play. Gamescon is certainly critical for European exposure without a doubt...but I would still argue C:VI would have the better ROI (return on investment) simply given the demographics. Very disappointing to see those potential customers slip by.

I read this in the GamesCom announcement and got all excited for today:

Quote:
EA Press Conference: Fans and Press should expect to hear some exciting new details about the future of The Old Republic during the presentation on Tuesday, August 14.
Telling us that one of the things we already knew was coming "Soon" is coming "next month" really doesn't count as "exciting new details" in my book. Though maybe I missed something?

Any plans to discuss some story expansions? That would be sick.
