gotcha! I would like the Cathar species, otherwise. Thanks for the clarification.

Doh, your right. Ok make it "Claudia Black to voice act the new Class.. Teras Kasi"

That is a much better fit now that I think about it.

It will be on both the site and social media.

Well this thread escalated quickly. Just so I can hedge expectations here, what I said last week was:

I apologize that cool information transformed into big announcement and set a precedence that it would be something huge. What you will see later today is an announcement and information about what I personally think is a really cool promotion. Also since I said the word promotion I will get out in front of it and say it has nothing to do with Cartel Market. Just as another "spoiler" here is the guess from the thread that was the closest to the mark:

It's probably going to be something totally different.
Apologies again if that spiraled out of control into a "big announcement" from us, I guess that's what happens when I tease something and give it a night to brew. Note: That will still not stop me from doing it again!

Isn't it kind of bad to say you will make your players' expectations really high then crush them.....almost like pre-orders....? *gasp* EAware would never do that intentially....

But I will say that Im a surprised it isn't about the Cartel Market, seeing that this game is almost nothing but now. Thanks a ton again for Cartel being Legacy Achievements, Pay to Rep, and other ilk that the people you work for introduced into the only SW MMO left.

I just mean that I will continue to tease things when I can! (which I think everyone is probably ok with). I will be sure to more clearly indicate it's level of "bigness" next time though, although that still may not stop people from running with it.

Really? Are you sure? The Cartel Market seems to be the only thing getting close-to regular updates at the moment.

And "really cool promotion"? Is this a run of SWTOR toys in US-only McDonalds or something? Are you relaxing F2P account restrictions for a month to encourage new players to join? Re-running CE codes?

No offense, but if you say so ok then.

Just saying....golds' .....reputations got a tad tarnished as of late.

Again not saying you, but overall EAware lost a lot of peoples' trust and you need to gain that back if you want this game to continue on.
