I really need this devs, I went Gunslinger but I mod, walk and talk like a Scoundrel and I really like my character.

Please implement as Legacy perk and CM item.

This would increment my time playing this game.

This thread was started almost a year ago and there still is absolutely no response from EA whatsoever. What's going on? I bet if we were reporting an exploit or selling credits we'd get a response before EOB. This is ridiculous.

Makes ya wonder how it went this long without any type of response. Guess this just isn't on their radar anymore.

It means no such thing - they said it will likely happen eventually, not soon. Coding for an MMO isn't like ordering fast food, things take time and other things are likely a higher priority atm.
All warfare is based on deception 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

I wouldn't read too much into that. How long did the question of player housing go unanswered until recently when they announced Galactic Strongholds?

It could mean anything. Neither of us work for BW, and they have not bothered to respond in 18 months. Also, if it takes more than 18 months to code something they already coded previously, they're doing something wrong.

I think Legacy banking is a good example.

As far as I recall the basic stance from devs on legacy banking had always been, there's a viable work around, just send items through your mail. When legacy was launched they opened up the ability to send mail cross faction so it seemed to be even less likely to happen.

And then, with little fan fare and no gold font in specific threads of the forums it was, 'Oh, btw, Player Housing has legacy banking too.'

At a cantina event earlier this year (Phoenix one) someone even said a legacy vault was too hard to code and wouldn't happen...

Quote:
Q: Are there any plans to increase the Legacy cap beyond 50, or provide any incentives to attain that level, such as Legacy banks so that you don’t have to mail credits to your alts etc?
A: They’d love to do that at some point, but technically very challenging and unlikely to happen in the near future.

Q: What are the plans to improve guild functionality in game: guild email, capital ships etc?
A: Currently nothing is specifically planned. A lot of the features requested would be technically challenging.

Q: The technical difficulties that keep being referred to: are these in relation to the game engine?
A: Each time they give that response, it’s due to a different technical difficulty such as architecture or something else.
I think it's a good bet that one of the technical difficulties they encounter is when is too early to reveal something the player base has been asking for since launch, without the player base then setting their expectations unreasonably high
