BioWare are you trying to get your operations players to leave?

Most members of my guild including myself have the same feeling. We love TOR! We don't want to shoot arrows or swing swords and fight dragons we want sci-fi but we're bored. We clear ops slowly and we are grinding through HM's but on the nights we're not raiding what else is there to do at 55? Most of us are rich and have all the clothes and pets we could ever want.

Not only is Bioware slow on new content but the quality of life stuff that would allow me to just mess around and kill time doesn't exist. Example:

I'm bored. Bioware says roll an alt. Ok I will. I'll make a sniper. Oh wait... there's no account friending, no cross faction GUILD chat and everybody else I would normally shoot the breeze with is now completely cut off from me unless I'm in vent. My guild master can't even whisper me to say "Hey wanna do a classic OP comms run on the pub side?" Solo questing doesn't bother me but the complete lack of in-game contact with the rest of my guild is just plain stupid. It shocks me that after almost 2 1/2 years my GM can't whisper me across faction. I can't even friend my cross faction alts, again, I can't even friend my cross faction alts so I don't have to type their names every time I want to send them mail. Pathetic.

I just don't have any faith in the development team anymore. My guild had problems last night progressing through DP HM and had to reset the instance because the Calphayus fight was bugging out. So we had to waste time clearing trash again. The night before we were having problems with the Tyrans fight bugging out. We're tired of broken stuff that shouldn't be broken. Don't even get me started on the nightmare stuff hitting the HM and SM ops after 2.7....epic fail Bioware.

I still log in 'cause my guildies are awesome. We have a good time but we can have a good time in any other game. Most of us are leaving to try a couple other games for a few months. We might come back, we might not, who knows. The point is we've all done about everything there is to do and the content feels stale.

I'm surprised this thread hasn't gotten deleted what with someone bring up a criticism and all.

Didn't they get a lot of criticism for how they were handling criticism?

Actually, not really. Probably less than a dozen threads of those(more than half of which created by people who got around bans anyways) versus what ranges from hundreds to thousands of critical threads on things like space combat, pve, pvp, end-game content, rp options, chat bubbles, sgr. Moderation really isn't all that heavy, and they pretty much only pay attention to the amount of personal attacks in posts.

I think as long as folks stick to the topic, keep it above the table, avoid any personal attacks, and discuss facts, we should be ok.

•Players accessing Operations through Group Finder will now be Bolstered to an appropriate gear rating while inside the Operation. This Bolster effect will also provide increased incoming healing and increased shield chance and shield absorb.

Welcome to the world of Tactical Ops. Another step to remove healers and tanks from the game.

All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

They also only really pay attention to the General Discussion board from what I've seen, I just wanted to use the word "criticism" a lot.

I could wax lyrical about the round, plump firmness of Malavai Quinn's arse, but if I called you an arse... Bioware would have to look up the word "arse" in a dictionary.
