What a waste of devs time...

This is a big concern for a lot of PvPers right now, a dev response would be great to give us some peace of mind.

As a dedicated None-aracade-game player, for me, this is all a waste of disk-space.
No,I will not quit the game. I just keep believing that sometime in the far future the team will
decide to advance the Character stories.

Again, gratz to the dedicated aracade-game players.
PvP players? Hm... Fixed for ya. Thanks me later!

A lot of the 'only PvP' type players have very little interest in GSF. IMO this expansion has no real strong appeal to any particular niche of the gaming community. And considering it seems that Bioware is going to use GSF updates to satisfy the PvP crowd, it could go south real fast.

Many things, but starfighter should not be a must. Star travel could have done it much better.

And I want script. Story. Choices. Replies. Starwars fantasy. That's why I am here. Not to chase some circles around some walls and rocks.
I am happy, anyhow, that I am not alone in hating this. Makes me feel less misplaced in this game.

Had to get to work so haven't had much time to play but it looks awesome. Only wish there were joystick controls. Looking forward to exploring more of this tonight.

I resubbed after 1,5 years just for GS and I'm glad I did - I enjoyed my first few matches! And I didn't encounter any bugs, crashes and the like so far. Thanks Bioware for this expansion

It's far from perfect though! Here are some first impression gripes:
- Now that I've tried it, I feel that native joystick support is a must!
- It doesn't feel as smooth as it should (see Freelancer for a very smooth mouse-controlled space sim)
- I don't like the whole "hold R-mouse to lock misslie" thing - it feels very awkward.
- I am not too fond of the UI - maybe I just need to get more used to it but I don't feel like critical information is being conveyed to me well enough. I need to play some more though before I can come up with more detailed feedback.
- Needs more game modes! I know they're on their way but I feel that these two maps will get old fast.
- I would love a cokpit view personally!

Despite all my gripes I had fun. But I feel that there is huge room for improvement, and hope that BW adds onto GS as quickly as possible because there is the danger that once the novelty wears off people will not bother with it without regular updates and proper attention paid to it.

See you all in my sights

Some just complain way too much. This is just the beginning of a giant new thing for SWTOR that will only keep making the game bigger and better. I'm surprised some people actually think BioWare will not improve on GS and just leave it as it is.

Relax, sit back and just have some fun on it. You don't need to nitpick everything to death. In the end, you will only make yourself feel horrible because you won't like it. SWTOR was never meant to be a space sim like EVE. Sure, they could put in free space exploration somewhat, in the future but it's not going to be an EVE clone. Sorry for those who want EVE in Star Wars. It's not going to happen.

Good job BioWare with the latest expansion. I am looking forward to more things to come to the game and I believe the game is headed in a completely better path than it was before. Very good

Enjoy yourselves out there!

I downloaded the patch and the game isn´t working. I have a pink screen after the presentation.
There is anything I can do to fix it? The game was fine last night.
