The DAY OF 1.2's launch, they pulled it. Some people complained, but the vast majority defended Bioware for pulling it, saying "it's better to have it late than wrong". That's all we were told that day. A few days passed and people continued to defend Bioware, despite their silence. Days of silence became a week...a week became two, two weeks became a month and we still hadn't heard ONE peep as to why it was pulled or when to expect it. I'd say that at the 1 month mark, people were starting to switch from 'acceptance' to a feeling of 'neglect'. I don't think we heard ANYTHING about why they were pulled for 2 months afterwards.

Don't say that online communities aren't forgiving and understanding...the thousands of people who post here were overwhelmingly accepting of the massive delay. It's when the delays happen without any word as to why and when it could be expected that communities turn. Ignoring your customers, like Bioware did, is why people turned...NOT because they were late with ranked wz's!!!
I'm just going to share with you that I know you say from time to time that you still enjoy the game, and I take you at your word when you say that. However, anyone reading your many many complaints and negative views about the game and the development team in the forum would never get that from your posts.

Say some good things about the game, to establish that you do indeed enjoy the game for the rest of us

Next month = September.

If it hits the PTS in September it might not be live until early October. So at the very latest we're getting Terror from Beyond in the first or second week of October.

Best case is live in early September, but either way those of us without 8 level 50s have time to keep leveling.

P.S: If you have 8 50s and full Campaign on all of them, take a break and get some fresh air.

Does any of that content include story updates, or story content of any kind? I understand that getting out new Operations is a big deal for a lot of people, but every MMO has raid-type content. SW:TOR is the only one with story content that makes me feel like my character is more than just a race/class combination and a bunch of gear.

I know a lot of people are asking for a lot of things, but with all the new content you've been saying will come, can you give us any information on something other than operations, flashpoints, PvP, and space combat? Anything would be much appreciated; thank you for your time.

Sounds to me in order to go ahead with your promise of content every 6 weeks your just splitting it up in order to fufill that idea.
Basically, next month, over 2 months since last major update, we'll get a small piece (not the huge update they said 1.4 would be. Then a month later, we'll get the 1 new warzone map. Then 6 months down the line, we may get another warzone map. By the year 2014, we should have 5 or 6 working warzones.

I'm paying my sub fees Andryah...obviously I see some reason to do that. The logical conclusion, imo, is that I enjoy the game enough to pay my fees and remain active in the games development. I'll answer tech support questions as I can, I'll reply to people who ask questions I know the answers to, in a very positive manner even.

If you're looking for me to be a cheerleader, you're asking the wrong person. I'm honest. I don't believe that a company I'm paying money to needs me to cheerlead for them, nor be their spokesperson...Bioware has a very competent team of people who speak on the subject of what to do, what to enjoy and what to look forward to, who have access to resources (the developers) that I lack. The game speaks for itself, no matter what I say. When someone unjustly criticizes the game or an aspect of it, I'll gladly jump in and defend it.

However...let me oblige you...

I love running the ONE operation per week with my guild (I wish the lockout was removed because I want to help others complete them). I love the rest, but only one is a challenge. I want MORE!
I LOVE a great PuG in warzones that whoops the opposing team, or beats a flashpoints via the group finder.
Contrary to what some think, I love the vast number of skills I need to memorize to perform at my best. Combat isn't 2 or 3 buttons, it's generally very situational and I'll hit at least 10 different specials in any given fight.
I love coming from behind to win Novare Coast when I'm down 14% to 100%.
I love the people playing this game - despite the numerous groups I've been in, there's not been one person I wouldn't group with again.
Bolster, to under 49 WZ's was brilliant! I love that a level 12 can play against a 48 and have a chance (not much, but one).
I love the settings! The worlds are absolutely beautiful in some areas.
I love the stories. I recently started an Imp Agent and the story is freaking great! I can't wait to log on my Imp.
I love the new communication we're getting from Bioware...I REALLY hope it continues.

There's a lot I enjoy about this game...but with nearly 2 million people forking out the $60+ to buy it, only to quit, I also notice the problems that NEED to be addressed! I'm terribly sorry if I come off as angry or negative...I'm not. There's a TON to enjoy in SWTOR and "I" want to enjoy this game for YEARS to come...not a few fleeting months. I still have hope for this game...the potential is ALL there...it would be so easy to capture players and capitalize on them that I find it mind boggling that Bioware hasn't yet. PvPers are DYING for just a glimmer of hope...toss out some random "kill 20 opposite faction players" mission with a new coin for new "stuff" and people would be content while we wait for Makeb. If the super duper secret space project is really what players hope it is, ANNOUNCE IT!!! The benefit from that would far outweigh any complaints if it were late. Allow players to repeat their class quests at 50 - it's so broken up with side quests, that the story becomes lost.

We're all here because we wanted this game to be great and I'm sure we all had our own ideas of what it would be. A few tweaks, some optimizations and this game could have easily avoided F2P. I really do enjoy the game Andryah...but the nearly 2 million that left, should have never slipped away.

I heard from some of the resident trolls we have on these boards and they convinced me that there would be no new content til F2P. These trolls (we all know their names by now) can't be wrong. They seemed so sure and informed. What they wrote inspired other such trolls. They just can't have been wrong!!!

So was it stated that all this was coming out next month and you didnt mean it that way or was it stated the way you just explained it.

Anyone know where a transcript or video for it is?
If this game is so great then why do so many people that love the game spend all their time in the forums?

Try 5-7 months now until we get a new operation.

Having to wait any longer than august to get a new content patch when this game is bleeding subs fast is not wise on biowares part.

That makes no sense. He's pretty much spot on, and if you've been here since launch, you would understand the frustration that comes with the PvP in this game. Heck, it's noted in EVERY single article in the news about the lack-luster PvP game here, and after awhile of kissing arse, you're bound to start putting some pressure on the team that's supposed to deliver.
