You do know how much **** bioware has announced and went back on?? Were you around for 1.2? They lied for months leading up to that update. (All orange armor in the game was supposed to be craftable. Remember that?) Any long-term player would be stupid to take them at their word.

Can we maybe stick to judging BioWare based on the current team's performance and let go of all the evils the people who got fired way over a year ago committed?

They sucked then. They're pretty impressive now.

As you so eloquently put it, any long-term player would be stupid not to notice the change.

Quoted for truth. Seriously, I've been here since early access. They are MUCH better now. Not to mention that was a different team of devs.

I think it's funny that most of the people who asked for another planet to be an option specifically mentioned Hoth.

I mean, in real life I moved away from upstate New York for a reason . . .

I'd put my Sniper girl on Hoth for a story-related reason.

That said, Hoth has an appeal with all its emptiness and barren beauty. It's the same sort of appeal that pulls people to Tat, as well.

Or are you one of those sorts who think that the game developers are 'lying' or 'misleading' when they say small, hard-to-misunderstand words?

Most of the hundreds of decor customization items will come from killing stuff, and doing stuff in-game, not the CM.

But don't mind me, someone having it's own thoughts about the whole thing rubs some drones here the wrong way it seems.
Both of you have a point.

The info is already in the FAQS but you are right it can change down the road if they feel that it doesn't work out as intended or they dont have enough time to make it happen. but thats not the reason you remain skeptical, you think that a majority of deco's will be on CM but that is not true, the faqs already had a statement on how we will require it. What will be on the CM will prolly be the most items craved for such as a Holocron that has Darth Revan coming out of it and quoting a few words, maybe Marka Ragnos his Scepter, Maybe a Dread Master Statue.

but BW did changed allot in the beginning at the launch of the game, promised allot but never made it happen so him being skeptical is no surprised. But BW also stated Guild Flagships will never make it as it would have no function or purpose, although The purpose was stated by many a gathering for guilds only. But now they announced it. But then again, most of those people who were promising the community stuff have been fired and or quite. so it can go both ways.

Having Normal items that dont meet the value prolly wont be on the CM and even if they did you are worried about the fact that you need to pay real money for it but there is also GTN which most likely those items will be placed there if they are taken from CM so all in all there is no need to worry about things unless you are one of the people having trouble making credits, or being a F2P which have credit cap.


anyhow Early Access is not far from now so like you said we will see what happens.
They pledged to follow me... when they thought i was alive.
They turned, when they thought i was gone.
So i will come back from the dead.. to lay claim to what i am owned!

Well now people can stop whining about wanting player housing and making SWG sound like it was the second and third coming of Christ since IT had player housing.

Quite neat to see, lookin forward to how this works.

Can anyone clarify this confusing matter to me:
If I'm a sub on May 11h, but the subscription ends at the beginning of June, will I still get the access to Galactic Strongholds on June 24 despite of being a preferred player then? I will certainly have the unlock of Stronghold with additional rooms and the titles, but I will need to sub again in June or not?
