Just an update, still nothing from bioware. Has anyone heard any information on these topics?

Love the game. But alot of these points are very valid for me. Especially the graphics ones. Would like to know about the low texture issues, blocky shadows and lack of AA.

I support this =)

The one thing I want Bioware to fix above all is the damn black screen crash issue which they made worse with this mornings patch.

Fix that and a lot of people will be happy.

I'm actually quite positive about the way BW is communicating.

Complaints about the grace period: They responded
Complainst about the queues: They responded
Taris issues: Responded

I can go on about several things they responded on. Remember this game has just been released and they have to cope with massive influx of people, new hardware etc. If they manage to communicate like this under this situation I think we can all be happy about the future.

I've yet to see Blizzard, Turbine and other to provide the same level of communication like BW.

We read many of the Forums daily, but we are never going to guarantee an answer to every question. It's really not possible.

It's a bug, and we are working on rolling out a fix.

We don't have an ETA on that yet, but it's desired by development.

A known issue, and will be fixed.

We'll be adding new content over time, but other areas of development are a higher priority right now.

For those on certain monitors/TVs, it makes reading quest logs, tool tips, anything else really ahrd to read. Also the ability to have better placement/manual placement of the hotkey bars.
There are more UI customization options coming, although they're a little way out.

And noobdy seems to use that actual "Flag yourself for group" option because it's not very successful. I would like to do flashpoints, but I'm not going to waste 30 minutes sitting in the fleet spamming /1 that I am looking for a group. Some kind of way to have a global search/group finder would be nice.
We're aware of this desire, but we actually believe that finding others on the same planet as you encourages social interaction a bit more than a general 'group finder'. We're not saying it'll never, ever happen but again, not high priority right now.

There are plans to allow those who adopt tanking roles to be able to gain the armor benefits when wearing moddable gear. Again, this is not a high priority feature right now, but I know it's something that Damion feels is important.

I know more chairs will be available for sitting in the future!

Since you are answering questions Stephen, how about the black screen issue that has got prevailantly worse.

Some players experienced this since beta, others have now "inherited" this issue from the last hotfix (I'm one of them) and it's actually not just a small issue to "sweep" under the carpet like some small visual bug, this is a very very big bad, stop you from playing forcing you to reboot issue.

The question is, will we see this issue at least hotfixed somewhat, maybe even a patch rollback (from the patch that was put out this morning that worsened the black screen crash making it more prevailent) before you guys go off to enjoy your holidays?

Or can we expect to have to wait until after the holidays, which I'm sure will likely tick a few people off (myself included first time in months I've had a few days off and I wanted to get stuck in yet can't because of this)?

We are 3 days from the launch. What exactly did you guys expect? I am amazed at people demanding all this stuff NOW. Its this entitlement thing this generation has. No patience no nothing. I want it all and I want it now. Sad I feel bad for the future.

Question if you are able, and thanks for those responses before ... when/will we see rewards from killing enemy players in PVP such as valor/xp/merc commendations each kill, instead of the current setup where just flipping Ilum is all that matters? Right now you're better off ignoring the enemy and trading the zone as far as I am aware?

Yes because a bunch of people being unable to play because of an issue that cannot be delt with client side is being "an entitled" crybaby.

Is it being a crybaby to ask to be able to simply play what you paid for without having to crash every 5 minutes?

Think before you post in future.

Officer chat is bugged a lot also.

The UI thing is being addressed. I would love to see the UI being a major feature of a future patch.

a LFD feature is convenient, but is a community destroyer to be sure, and I'm so glad it's not in the game.
