So yes you can assume that because of F2P they are hiring more people to fill their ranks.
Haha! You know what assuming does don't you? You have no idea what or why they are hiring those people all you have is conjecture and assumptions.

Please tell me your a coach or something because if you teach anything that children really need to know then I feel very sorry for your students.

And btw...if you really are a teacher, and don't realize the illeteracy rate among adults, then I don't know what to say.

And several locations... including in Canada.. strange that.

But, for their senior tech ad they do mention he'll be working on SWTOR. Which is very interesting if you follow the costumer service forum....
yes the job application for Bioware Austin mentions all the games that Bioware has produced however if you took 5 seconds to read the jobs

The 6 jobs that were previously up said the same thing.

You still have zero proof if those jobs were new jobs or jobs replacing other staff who quit for whatever reason.

They recently fired a ton of people, Why? It could be cause they were temp help...it could be because the game was not doing well...it also could be because they were poor performing people and they used that time to get rid of them so they could perhaps find new talent...

You have no idea why they are hiring people...stop acting like because a company is hiring it means they are adding staff...You have no idea!

At the very least don't call people out for not having "evidence" when you yourself really have no evidence behind your statements either.

Right... they are adding hundreds of thousands of dollars in payroll based on the initial, novelty-boosted performance of a new product introduction. Give your head a shake. It would take months worth of trend mapping before even the subject of hiring would come up.

Besides that. All they need for CM items is someone to re-color what they've already done. That doesn't take programmers or artists. That takes amateur modders who know how to manipulate the color pallete in a paint program. There's thousands of those who do that for fun.

Because they fired those 6 entry level employees because their job peformance was low. Now they have to rehire those positions

Oh snap! Prove me wrong? You can't because you have no idea.

ok you understand that they fire a lot of the staff right? that happened back in July and August. Now after the game went F2P they are hiring NEW employees. So yes if you want to play schematics they are still replacing the people they fired. However they now have MORE employees then they did after the firings.
