The testing on PTS isnt true "testing". They are more or less testing the difficultly of the fights, and how people react to the mechanics. Did much change for 1.2 from the first release on the pts to what went live, not really... i believe some fights had their dps check lowered though, and they fixxed the wall of death bug right?

True bug testing can only happen when you know all of the mechanics to a fight, and able to play with them, and tweak them. You wont get the chance to master anything on the PTS Imho... and that why true bug testing is left to in house testers who get the fights explained to them by the developers, but the in game testers we have in this game are crap or non existent.

Yeah I'm very much expecting it to be pushed for release by 25th Sept regardless of its condition, since 90% (if not more) will never play the PTS to try it out ^^ and they'll need it to keep raiders attention fully on swtor

Wow, this is exactly what I thought would happen with them releasing new content every six weeks. 1 Operation. Wow that is it....that is really lame. - There has been no true new content since April and the game is only releasing 1 new operation. Then it will be 6 weeks from then and they will release 1 other new item.

Really disappointing.....

Please don't misunderstand this post, because I really do appreciate your recent commitment to communication here on the forum, and I understand that there are things which you are unable to provide details on.

But I, at least, am not asking for details. At this point, I'm not even asking for "sooner" or "later". You must know internally whether story content updates are in the planning or development stages. If you could simply state, yes or no, whether there are plans for future story content updates, it would be much appreciated.

Well it would be naive to have expected a new Ops and WZ and Event every 6 weeks :P Most likely a new Ops and WZ and Event every 3 months, but staggered every 6 weeks. Which I personally think is better anyways, bagging everything in one big patch, makes everyone go nuts for like a month and then bored for ages.

Im inclined to actually believe theyll deliver more content now though, purely since f2p will rely on selling that content to free players.

For PvP, new mainhand and offhand items will become available from the PvP vendors when Terror from Beyond is released. These will be included so PvP players don't feel the need to get the hilts and barrels from PvE items to get the highest weapon damage in some cases. The rest of the set will release when Ancient Hypergates becomes available. We also have plans to release a new Recruit MK-2 set.
OK. I demand same expertise on my offhand (i'm sorc) as some other classes (mara/sent/gunslinger/merc). Same with stats on the offhand (they are lower than on mainhand). Also i want to mod it the way i want to - just the way THEY can. What we have now is total bs.

PS. Exclude premades from normal wz's. They kill the pvp experience.
