They said they'd do a couple of thing, and that there would be something in-game and out, they never said there's be more things in-game than just the title.

It was the defensive statement of some fanboys and fangirls telling people not to whine about the 10 CC title because there would be more because of that same statement.

We were simply given 3 examples, they did 5, but the two unannounced were basically the same as one of the other 3, so next those same defenders will use that to continue their crusade.

I never expected them to do more than the junk they did, but always hoping for more... best case scenario they patch an unannounced event in today, but don't hold your breath.

•Adventuring with companion characters that you cared about.

It would seem I share the same feelings on the subject as you do.

Becoming a Jedi?

Ohlen you're making me think you have a Republic bias. We Imperials matter too you know.

B) A wallpaper.
C) A in game title for one day only.
D) A blog write up from some guy about the game. Whoopdy do

Man, Bioware...you SURE KNOW HOW TO PARTY!

No in game event.
No armor set or SOMETHING worth while.

Just like the free 500 cartel coins, Bioware has zero imagination. Everything they do now days is lazy. Just like this. I can guarantee you that if this were in Guild Wars 2 they would have done something to really celebrate, without the monthly fee might I add. All Bioware seems to care about these days is Cartel market, making reskins of everything, and 90% of the time ugly designed armor.

Yes, what a celebration!!!
Lazy doesn't even scratch the surface of their efforts. They're inept in everything they do. The Cartel Market is GOD here, and they're blind to anything else.

Nice blog, KOTORs are still ranking amongst my top games.

I do hope that this game, even though it had a bit screwy beginning (content locusts, too many servers) will find its way to be great and played for at least another ten years, just like KOTORs are. All it takes is convincing EA to pour more money into the game, so that all mentioned content that was and is integral part of both KOTORs and TOR gets larger.

New Operations are awesome, but more larger stories would be even better.

Vote with your dollars. If you don't like what Bioware is doing, go somewhere else. Otherwise shut up and enjoy a magnificent game.

P.S. Bioware make space combat more like it was in Galaxies.

Ahahahahah!!! When? EAware proved to be the worst company when it comes to events like starwars day, or any RL event. Last proof, today you can buy yourself a gift and/or hit F5! Seriously...

Why don't you shut up and enjoy space like it is then? Fanboys... Btw, I did vote with my dollars and unsubscribe. Unfortunately, I can't change your cartelmarket vote. All I can do with my last days of subscription is explain my disagreement.

They kind of already did. The Makeb story is the same for all classes, and it was a major disappointment to me.

All in all: I really like SWTOR. I like many things in it, and at times I feel immersed and I get the SW feelings. However the taint of EA is STRONG in it.. And it not even that much about the moneygrabbing, tongue-in-cheek "celebrations" (Buy this title from the cartel market. Come on. Buy. BUYBUBUYBUYYYY)

I wish the content wasn't so friggin linear. All new content seems to be aimed only at the highest level, latest gear rating whatever. Give us something meant for everyone. This current progress feels like its aimed at eventually just milking the few and far between paying customers while everyone else has already left.

I looked around and read a couple of posts. All in all this thread looks like a battle zone between mindless fanboys and raging naysayers. First point, the 10th year anniversary of swKOTOR, was not an online serverwide event, why expect one? If you want to have an game wide event, is this the particular place to discuss it? I think everyone can agree SWTOR is a great idea, which could have been done (maybe) just a bit better, and is failing to improve itself half as much as most people want it to. Still it is a very good game, not great but very good.

What I am saying is, pick up all the nonsense about how good and bad the game is, and take it to a place it belongs. Like suggestions or bugs sections.

My 2 cents on the anniversary, it was what has been promised, no more no less.
