This is how I feel as well. I feel our arguments were weak, and Bioware just wasn't swayed. Combined with some poor timing of some minor improvements that allow Bioware to argue that we haven't fully tested the 2.4 changes yet, all the answers are depressing.

Hell even in my current project management position, I've told the CEO of the company no, because it would ruin my/our relationship with a client and that we could do better than that. I still work here a year+ later.

So no, she's not to blame, but unless she is literally a secretary...she has some responsibility in its content, language, and positioning. Not to mention, followup.
I think you should apply here then.

I doubt they could pay my salary. Also, I hate spending more than 2 weeks in Texas at a time. The bigotry gets to me, even in Austin.

Actually I would put PT/VG tanks as a close second, right behind Jugg/Guards. Really the only tanks that have a right complain are Sin/Shadows. And even then, they were ridiculously better than the other two tanks for over a year, so its hard to feel bad for them.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

I'd take a guess that it's more that they wouldn't pay your salary. But this is pretty irrelevant other than for chest pounding reasons.

Oh ya, they're fooling people, they ask only to pretend they care. Only to deny later and say that people need to lear to play it. Intersting that the DEV team playing ARENA sucks.

They don't play his own game, i bet they all go to other game to have fun, probly they play wow, guild wars 2, rift.

IT'S A FACT BIOWARE DEV TEAM IS DUMB

No, he's not kidding. I made the mistake of driving through Midland/Odessa Texas on the way to Dallas for a job. I stopped for lunch, ate, and I walked back outside to find myself in the middle of a klan rally. Needless to say I did not return to Texas after that. This was what, five or six year ago?

The response is typical of the arrogant condescending attitude the devs have.

Derp derp! Comparing yourself to our favorite classes leads to disappointment!

No you idiot, FIGHTING other classes in PVP leads to disappointment, because the assault spec dies constantly with no defensive CD's.

It's not that the class is not fixed (I do play others), but when the devs tell me I have "perception problem," after the community gathers evidence and information, their is a serious problem. Even, if the community is wrong, the devs should have indulged us and explain why and how the class is not under performing, instead of this 30 meter crap, that if I used in the game general chat people would laugh at me.

It was wrong answer, wrong information, poorly worded. The only thing left was the devs to put middle finger in the response. Considering that I invested time and gathered data showing that the class is under performing, and so did others in the community, a detailed explanation was the bare minimum. This is unacceptable.

Unfortunately the only thing left is to vote with my money. I refuse to support such customer service. Yes, devs response to community questions/concerns is a part of the customer service package. This is garbage customer service. Do I feel entitled for an appropriate response? Maybe, since the devs promised one when the opened the door for community questions and the community spent time gathering evidence. Maybe next time get your devs to understand what the heck they are talking about before they talk and hire people who can write.
