I wish swtor would have balancing cycles every patch. That way it's not make or break every single damn big patch. Test the game with a large audience, and if you constantly rebalance then people won't be so worried about fotm.

AP said that they were going to try to move towards that kind of development cycle in the future. but, words are wind. so lets see if they back it up now that the expansion is out of the way.

Supposedly doing that is in discussion, and it seems most forum posters are in agreement. Honestly I think 2.0 has just been keeping what limited staff they have busy. Is that an excuse? Not an excuse really, but an explanation certainly. I'm hoping though that going forward we see a lot more little tweaks from patch to patch.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Yeah, that and A.P. doesn't seem to have a clue as to what classes are FOTM or OP at any given time. Just a bunch of numbers in a spreadsheet to him.

Edit: It took practically an entire forum hijacking to get the last little tweak to commandos. He hasn't the faintest idea why people are complaining. Utterly, utterly clueless.

Awww so harsh. Maybe he does know and just doesn't care.

This.

I honestly do not believe he's not aware of the numerous issues in PvP and there's no possibility he "doesn't" know. He simply doesn't care...as long as his numbers look good on paper, he's content.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. 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.

Metrics told AP to ignore all forms of feedback but the numbers he gets from Metrics. as long as Metrics says a class is balanced, AP is happy

Wouldn't surprise me. Metrics has been running the show since launch. I just wish AP had the courage to stand up to Metrics and tell him he's misleading and mistaken.

So Metrics is the ignorant one and AP is the indifferent one? Got it.
