Armour changes as time goes on so why go back to the old stuff when new stuff has been made. Keep them as they are!

Makeb...WHEN? Only question!
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

Aside from Cathar, are there any plans to make further additions to character creation (be they species, body types, face types, hairstyles, or what have you).

3/4 of the alloted time BW Devs will attempt at being hip and cool. The remaining few minutes they will say they are working hard and hope you stay tuned and thank you for coming.

BW, prove me wrong. Don't be like the A-hat devs of the other games. Be genuine, and forthcoming.

A necessary addition to 1.4: Everyone I know who has played a commando knows they are a gimped class. I have a 50 Vanguard in battlemaster that outdamages my Commando in full War Hero completely aug'd. (Both are assault spec'd) The big difference between the two that I have noticed is that my Vanguard procs HIB far more often than my Commando. Why is this? The reason lies with charged bolts. A Vanguard has both Ion pulse and stockstrike to proc HIB. Both of these are instant abilities. Whereas the Commando has a channeled (full-auto) and charged bolts which has a 2 second cast time. Charged bolts usually gets interrupted for one and for two IT TAKES 2 SECONDS. The worst part about it is more than half the time it doesn't even proc HIB after waiting those 2 seconds. I think Commandos need an instant ability as a secondary to proc HIB to balance the class.

This is so true I have a Bounty Hunter Mercenary and a Trooper Vanguard and I tested the exact thing and got the same results.

No you can't answer every single question and no sane person expects you to do so, but you need to make more of an effort to answer more questions - especially some of the more long-standing questions that keep getting asked over and over again.

Why?

After all, who am I? Why should you give my opinion any weight? Well, here's a timeline that explains why:
  • December 20th, 2011 - Star Wars: The Old Republic launches, 2+ million boxes sold
  • February 2nd, 2012 - EA announces SWTOR has 1.7 million subscribers (at least 300k potential subscribers lost)
  • May 7th, 2012 - EA Financial Reports show subscribers have dropped to 1.3 million (400k subscribers lost)
  • May - July, 2012 - Reportedly, 150+ BioWare employees lose their jobs during multiple rounds of lay offs.
  • July 31st, 2012 - EA confirms SWTOR at "Less than 1 million subscribers" (another 400k+ subscribers lost)

So yeah. Those of you who still have jobs may want to consider listening to the paying customers that you still have left when they tell you that you're not answering enough of our questions.

I think the way that extra pieces and commendations can be turned into recipes and materials for making Black Hole gear is a really great system, but it can trivialize PVE gear progression when buying pieces replaces running the content to obtain best-in-slot gear. The new Dread Guard gear in 1.4 appears much more difficult to obtain (no comms, only a few drops from HM Asation), but can still be RE'ed for schematics. What is the design intent for PVE gear progression for high-end PVE groups (Nightmare players, when it is released), and your thoughts on the ramifications of having all best in slot pieces (save set bonus Armorings) available bind-on-equip in the game through the crafting system in 1.4 and beyond?

How do we get Hazmat/Dread Guard earpiece in 1.4?

Will subscribers have to pay for Makeb when f2p comes along?

Guild ships?
