F2P Question 1: Has there been any discussion on allowing Cartel Coins to be used to purchase race unlocks instead of just the level 50/X million(s) of credits options in use now?

F2P question 2: Could we ever see some of the Social gear sets turn up in the "Store"? Or perhaps a method to purchase Other faction gear without the conversion happening like it does now? For example, I would be able to use Cartel Coins to buy bound orange shells of Sith armor for my jedi. Any shot at this?

1.4 Question: Can you go into any more detail on the various optimizations you have done for video performance beyond shadows? Specifically I am looking for answers like "We made another pass at texture rendering" or "We have adjusted long distance rendering to improve performance". That sort of thing. I am curious to know where I should expect the best improvements.

Is HK-51 coming with F2P, and is he going to be free to Subscribers?

1. Can you give us any information on new pets in 1.4?

2. Is the Deep Wiggler HM only?

3. What Vanity Pets can be hope to see in the future?

4. What is your favorite thing in the new operation?

5. Can you shed any light/give any hints on the 16-man HM TfB Cave? (or what it may hold)

F2P question then: It appears that Cathar are going to be rolled out in the Cartel Shop when the game goes free to play. Will we see any other species perhaps some more alien varieties not looking so much like humans with facepain rolled out as well?

Comment: The community has been asking for more alien species for a long time now and instead we get the Cathar. From what we have seen of them it doesn't even appear that they have realistic fur. We are also told that the sucess of the first role out of new species will be used to judge the demand for it. So it seems as if a single species that didn't meet the requests of the playerbase is going to be the yard stick that other additional species will be judged. Surely a better formed judgement could be made if you offered a couple of species, coupled with doing what can be done well so if the hero engine isn't good at fur maybe a species with scales or the like?

Nice attempt at avoiding all the other issues in the game that require answers.

Then why bother with it? its about time that Bioware allowed the community to post maybe two questions and have them answered. It has gone on for too long that Bioware and EA have ignored us and this deception of them giving us a chance to talk about 1.4 that most of us here have not even played.

When are they ever going to give us answers to the problems that have been in this game since beta and have been the course of so many people leaving.


Damn it they are such a FRUSTRATING company!!!!

I'm one of the ppl that like this game, but i notice also that a better communication is needed, as i posted here and here (for example)
So post this question with me: "With the new patch and with the F2P questions and suggestions are going to increase, are you going to increase the effort you pur on community-bioware communications?"
