Not very happy about that statement
They first stated what they will try to do(6 weeks, maybe we will manage in less). Then with each patch as soon it was nearing 6th week, threads started poping out everywhere "omg BW you're going to break your 6week promise?".
So now they recreated this "promise" in a way that makes it easier to keep.

You can worry about each little thing, but I consider it better to just wait and see how it unfolds. Also there is quality of upcoming patches to consider.

They could drop 1.6 live next week(with current amount of feedback there is little reason for it to stay on PTS) and deploy Makeb in same or following week.
Unless they don't want to release anything below 6week schedule, and we will have to wait until january(9 weeks they talked about) for new wz and space missions.
On the other hand the 9 week patch period leaves them 1.6 in december, and then the ilum thing in march/february, can they also fit in Makeb? They also stated we'd be testing Makeb with the character copy system. That would lead me to believe that its the patch following the ilum one.

Also for the CE countoff, two!

They always said around 6 weeks. But could be +/- that. Never did they say 4 weeks.

There is nothing wrong with new content every 6-8 weeks. That's a great timeline to get content in. Don't be one of those peeps that mark exactly 6 weeks on their calendar and cry when content isn't released on the Sunday of.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Awesome post Dulfy thanks a bunch for the info first thing I was looking for as soon as I got up. As the previous person posted I was wondering on the gear progression as well.

They can make it more meaningful by making the CE vendor a DDE vendor, as that pool can keep on growing. However, previous rewards for DDE players even suggested as being the same as CE never really picked up well either. Of the few CE players out there, there tends to be a high level of entitlement believing they ought to be treated as better customers because they paid more, without taking into account the extra physical products obtained.

So well yeh, if I were BioWare I'd simply pass on that too. Expand the CE vendor bit by bit by adding a few items with expansions, but nothing more really. I wouldn't be expecting any more than that if I were you either.
^I'm CE, but I don't care one way or another. I also don't feel entitlement to anything more. Sure it be nice, but there defiantly much higher priorities, but then again I was more intersted in the soudtrack and items, then the digital vendor.

I'm CE Four, checking in!

Barring some awesome surprise where Makeb is actually in 1.6, we won't see it till 1.7, around the end of February to go by their 9 week post-1.6 comment, at the latest. If then.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
