Lunafox nailed it. This is correct.

We are now using the computer and internet, sadly that is where we are at, but in the end, that is what defines a friend, social media.
Definitions come and go, but the bonds that define what true friendship is remain the same - hard-wired, no matter how culture changes, no matter what gets called "friend" and what does not. It's pretty much an objective evolutionary mechanism for the mutual preservation. Everything more superficial than that is social frill, fluff, and is inconsequential and meaningless in the longer perspective.

I find it hard to believe that there are enough people playing GSF to even make a premade. I mean... it's only available to subs and I haven't seen the Q pop in the last week or so. I usually give it like 10-15 minutes and then I just leave the queue.

There are long queue times but then who wants to queue up to get ganked.

On the one hand I rather hope BW don't fix GSF I don't find it overly much fun at the best of times and once you have maxed out a ship I don't see much appeal to playing so if no one is playing it they will hopefully invest the resources elsewhere. Come 2.6 which is the official galactic star fighter launch unless you are a subscriber or prefered customer in which case its a couple of new ships and some class tweeks no doubt well worth the wait. If it can be ruined by pre-mades and unbalanced matches the quicker its ruined for people the better.

On the other hand given 2 updates are being used on this it would be nice if it wasn't awful and with the current setup its a long way from being OK let alone good. So bioware need to do something to make it fun and meaningful and balanced. And given how little else there is to do in the game with so little new content GSF really needs to offer something. That or April will see people having to ask is this really the place to stay once you have completed the class story.

Queue times are starting to take a long time to pop for me as an average of 20+mins. I think the fun factor of GSF is starting to wear off already on people. This should of just been called a content patch and not an expansion because an expansion it surely is not. This has to be the biggest joke of an expansion in mmo history.

Because it obviously has nothing to do with the holidays and people not being at home and everything to do with pre-mades, right? Oh, and it wasn't an expansion. It was early access. The expansion comes in 2.6 and includes much more stuff.

Much more? No. Some more.
Let's not over-hype it.

If people are disappointed by the early-release, they will most likely not be enthused about the official launch.
