This is my only concern... As excited as I am for these updates. I sure hope this doesn't mean that Swtor is on it's last run or anything. I mean... I enjoy the game. It has it's ups and downs but still very much enjoyable. So... will more be coming in 2014 and stuff after these expansions or is the game gonna get shut down? Bioware? Someone? Clarify?

It just seems like a kind of lackluster first half of the year compared to last year.
I have to agree. Based on that, we are looking at a minimum of August before we see a completely new operation, and that is disappointing. Unless they sneak in a new raid in 2.8, which seems unlikely since they have never released a NiM of one raid at the same time as a completely new one, it will be 10 months between new operations releases. I think that will be a new record.

So I wish there were fewer GSF updates, and more PvE raider content in that list.

Question to the Devs, are there any plans to incentivize Ranked PvP? Right now, it's pretty dead because of the lack of incentives.
The incentives will be when they announce what the rewards are for the season so people will try to rush and hustle last minute for that oh so anticipated recolored blurg mini pet reward that we all had on our wishlists.

Yeah.. even if they do have amazing uber rewards planned for us, it would have made a lot more sense to tell us right at the start. Not a week before the end.

And given their track record, there won't be uber rewards. There'll be one speeder, that is probably a rehash of the Speeder which you get for 10k creds at the Tatooine market, and then they'll say it's too big and remove it.

Then there'll be a new set of cosmetic gear, which will be re-released a week later with no rating requirements or outright removed entirely, like they did with the Firebrand set.

They can't clarify. It will give them technical issues.

There is a minimal gear grind advantage, which does not in and of itself deliver wins.
At least the "FPS in space" has WAY less stuttering and FPS drops. In fact I would call it non-existent in GSF......WZs though, different story.

So we're counting flipping a switch to turn on double xp weekend or to recycle a past event as being part of your "new content" every 8 week goal? Oh sorry, your nine week goal.

2013/10/02 - 2.4 release of DF & DP
2014/04/08 - NiM DF (6 months of no update to DF)
2014/06/10 - NiM DP (8 months of no update to DP)

Given their track record, who knows how long they will leave us with NiM DF & DP before adding a new Op. So we're looking at a year+ of miliking the same 10 bosses? I defend this game all the time, but that is bs. Crap like this is what makes me want to unsub.

L2Math.

February 4th - April 8th == 64 days aka 9 weeks.

The March thing is not considered content, it's a double XP weekend, keeping with their 3 week minor update cycle, not their 9 week major update one.
