That's been their design for a long time now. Tons of costumes, very few flashpoints or raids.

I completely understand the point you are trying to make here and I hope we get more game modes.

But the official launch of this portion of the game is not until February 4th 2014.

"Beta" can mean either beta code (as in bugs). Or an early release to a smaller group of people to get feedback. Subscribers are the smaller group of people. Generally it is not fully designed or still lacking certain things at this point.
We already know this is the case with bombers. They have been confirmed, we know they exist, but they won't be in the early access.

They are testing GS on the subscribers to get feedback. I wouldn't expect any concrete details on what the full scope of this will be until we get closer to the actual launch of GS.

Now I could be wrong and they plan to roll out changes as they finish them up instead of adding them all on Feb 4th, it is hard to say because they have never done this before.

But yes, This is a glorified Beta. We have Early access to this feature. Plenty of other companies release "beta" code onto live servers. Not necessarily because it is buggy but they need feedback and to cover their asses if something does go wrong.
Take a look at google for this one. Gmail was in beta for 5 (maybe) years.

It's not beta if it's on the live servers. They have a test server to test content on...this is the launch tomorrow, despite anyone trying to pretend it isn't.

Jesus Christ you people. This thing is 12+ hours away from even being launched and your already ************ about it? Where did you park your TARDIS or other sorts of time-traveling devices, I'd like to see the future you saw so I can join in on the Groaning & Moaning Bandwagon.

If your going to complain about something, at least fricking wait until its released so your ************ at least has SOME shred of validity.

(And if anyone thinks I'm defending Bioware at all, please...feel free to look at my post history.)

We have hours logged into PTS and know what we are getting. I can tell you this much, 1 gamemode for a long time will kill the enjoyment of Galactic Startfighter.
May the Force be with you.

And you'd rather have nothing at all? Constantly biting the hand that feeds you is going to back fire in your face one day - hard.
