I assume that this is sarcasm, giving ''player feedback'' as a reason to remove a communication channel.

We all take a look at those, daily...
First of all, answering ''we don't have new info but when we have we will give it to you'' is NOT a useful answer.
Second, merging & closing treads just to ignore the underlying problems, is NOT a useful answer.
Third, every week, Bioware manages to upset ALOT of players with their ''features'': only a handfull of players get tranferred to PST, patches that don't get tested decently, forced renames of characters that have their names since pre-launch without even the decency to disclose all the reasons why, no new armor sets, not one single extra mechanism to solve crowded areas after the server merge... None of those issues were resolved. Not. One. Single. Issue.

Do you people even realise you lost 1/5th of your logins in just 3 weeks? Or do you really believe that f2p will solve everything? Is there some sort of crisis-team that looks as to why people leave and then DO something about it?

With ''substantial increase'' you mean instead of 1/10 2/10? It's a substantial increase, alright, but it's still waaaaay lower than in other games.

Communications like this convince me that Bioware doesn't realise that there are REASONS why so many people left the game. They need to get their act together and actually SOLVE the inherent problems that the game has and so far. There is no indication whatsoever that you people are doing that: it seems as if there is NO mid-term planning, just the ''f2p will fix it all'' mantra. But that won't work: if you do not solve the core problems, f2p won't solve anything.

What do you expect an answer to be? They run the game as a business, they have shareholders so they have a responsibility to make sure information is accurate. If they constantly said oh this will be out then etc.. and never met the target that would be a big problem. Most business is the same. Personally I don't feel they need to comment in the way above. It would be better for me to see a roadmap of what is intended with targeted quarters or no dates at all instead of being told 'its coming soon' on multiple different threads.

I disagree on this one, not many games have devs active in the forum, its just drowned out by all the noise. Compared to the number of posts the activity is normal - high.

Again, when you have a publicly owned company you cannot say anything that may influence the price of shares without proper authorisation. As a gamer if you expect this you wont be so disappointed.

No is going to give you the answers you want. Get over it or get lost. It's not that they aren't communicating, it's that you don't hear what you want to hear. News flash, you aren't that important.

Maybe they are working at that time? I don't know! I think some people do not live in USA...I think but I am not sure about it. Hehehe!
