After much debate from our combat team we have decided to simply remove shadows and commandoes from the game. We know it is probably not the answer you were all looking forward to hear but this is the best course of action we feel we can take as a development team.

Again, thanks for your patience and we look forward to hearing your feedback and continued support of our game.
Seems legit.

i'm gonna laugh if this ends up being a more accepted response than that one the devs actually post...

And she has no control over that.

Yep, I do! Thanks for finding that for me. Although it also does confirm that he's not just sitting in a dark office by himself with no input, he has a support team.

Support for: Brainstorming and testing.

He alone does: Design, implementation, and balance for all of the classes.

While it may seem like a quick and easy thing to answer these questions, the team wants to make sure you receive thorough answers, which does take time. I understand this is not ideal, but we appreciate your patience and apologize for the delay!

I'm sure it is, and that makes it even more understandable as to why he's probably got a limited amount of time to sit down and type up thoughtful answers. 2.4 is around the corner and they're all probably "crunch time" mode.

Except that Eric said they were hard at work on 2.5 and the changes that are supposedly coming in that patch. If he had said they are working on polishing 2.4, I would be less disappointed.

I don't know how Bioware does it, but I know at another certain MMO company they have teams split by content patches. Inevitably people have been working on 2.5 for some time now, but there is still work to be done on 2.4 until, and even when it launches. Certain kinds of developers are usually juggling a lot of different areas of content at once. the combat balance guy is probably having to look at stuff that will come up in the distant future as well, even the space combat.
