before we start talking about how much bioware cares about us, shouldn't we see what's in the email? isn't the actual game and the content more important than a post saying 'wait a couple days?'

i waited more than 5 minutes to post this.
Oh I deeply appreciate Eric letting us know, I mostly posted that as a joke due to how these forums are nowadays.

Same! I think it's great eric gave us a quick FYI on this thread.

I'm just not going to get my hopes up on this one. They heard our feedback on 2.1 (Barber Shop) and seemed to understand SUBS are slightly pissed over that one's "Cost" to us. Tie that into the free name change taking another month after CM version release they do have some PR cleanup on isle one. So all that said I'm going to stand by and wait for some super surprise to show up. It would be nice to see something more than a pet or fireworks and a gift with "REAL MEAT" in it for once.

Glad you guys are all looking forward to it though, keep your eyes peeled for information soon™.

Thanks for the response, can you at least tell us when the emails will start going out?
Mal: Well look at this, appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoe: Big Damn Heroes, Sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

Eric's answer is exactly as expected IMO. They have a history of liking to present us with "surprises". If they tell us about it in advance, it's like telling a kid what's in that present under the tree, 2 weeks before Christmas. They are being predictable in how they present surprises to the players.
i don't see anything wrong with eric's post. as already stated, it's not a surprise if they tell us it's a surprise. aside from that, aren't you in the wrong thread?

haven't you posted numerous times about people's expectations being too high? are you now suggesting we should expect something other than a let-down? could you please help me out here and provide some examples of where bioware exceeded common expectation in the last 5 or 6 months?

i'm trying to help out. i had higher expectations for this game, for which you berated me and said i should take responsibility. that's what i'm doing. i no longer have high expectations and i'm trying to help others manage a more reasonable view on the direction of the game. please note that nobody from bioware has made any statement regarding their priorities for the future direction of this game. we know there is content they are working on, and stuff should be expected around the second week of august. we know they had something planned for this weekend. what they have not communicated is why they did what they did with server transfers and their focus on cartel market updates without releasing anything new for subscribers.

let me help refresh your memory of your opinion of expectations:

Maybe I'm just cynical, but I read that paragraph as being a polite, flowery, somewhat tongue-in-cheek way of saying "We have no idea what the surprise is yet and totally forgot about it until you guys reminded us about it"

That's great news. Thanks Eric! I'll keep an eye out for an email. I like that it is a surprise and not just something for the world to scream about before we even get it. Would be awesome if it was Treek

I bet they didn't forget about it. But I do think you're wise to keep your expectations low. You know that whatever it is, there will be people posting on the forums calling it a slap in the face.

You'll still be able to check your email or hop on the website for a minute or two to see what the details are, right? I doubt it's anything that subs will have to be physically logged into the game this weekend just to get.

If you really want to show me you appreaciat me for being a subscriber since day 1, you should simply make good on your promise to implement chat bubbles. All my subscription money was and is meant to go into the development of that very feature!
