At one point there was going to be because after you complete Chapter 3 the loading screen says interlude, but I just don't know anymore after they said that story is on the back burner.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

I'd be really interested in seeing that interview if anybody could point me in the right direction. The above comment just made me notice that I had been taking comments about story being deprioritized for granted, and that after having spent the past few days catching up on dev news I hadn't actually seen anyone official say anything about that. I just spent like fifteen minutes doing searches on all of the TOR and general gaming blogs, and none of them really had anything recent about changes to story development that I could find. Honestly, the only thing close to a source for this seems to be comments on this forum from around June that had people asking if the increased priority of legacy content would mean story delays.

On the main thread topic; Personally, I don't think we'll see an Act 4 until there is a full expansion.

I would like to weigh in and say that I am interested in the interview about Character Stories being on the back burner as well.

I read this somewhere on these forums myself. I can't see myself staying subscribed or bothering ftp unless they continue the storyline. That's the chief attraction for me. Sorry, I don't have the link.

No idea. I know that Bioware has said yes, FWIW. I also know that there have been significant staff reductions and that the game has gone ftp. So we'll see. They may come along, they may not. Even if they do materialize, I suspect they'll be less involved than the original vision. (Although this may not be bad. Every storyline I've played has parts that could be cut without losing anything.)

I am with those of you, though, who don't think they'll keep subscribing if there's *never* any character specific content. Like you, that's what I love about this game. So if that vanishes, I'll probably finish up my subscription, then go ftp and finish up the characters I'm still curious about...

Of course there will be, and it is very likely there will be some story related sidequests between now and then, bioware never said anything about never doing stoory only that the next chapter will not come within the year, but remember storywise we get an EPIC storyline to get hk, as well as some story and lore in the xpacs, there will always be epic story and some additional missions but the next chapter will likely be in a major patch or 'mini x-pac' like makeb, expect it in something like that or a true xpac.

and honestly, if you follow the nay-sayers you would know its just a small group of trolls who are in love with galaxies and desperately want a sandbox, we may get some sandbox features but until this game is galaxies 2.0 they will hate the game, honestly dont listen to their trolling, this is a new game that is beginning to find its stride, once it extends trial to 50 we will have many new players to invigorate game and eventually new subscribers.
