Good to know! Once again, your timing is impeccable. I was about to go through a bunch of crates on a couple of alts. Look for my characters pre-Nov. 28th on an upcoming episode of Hoarders: Buried Alive (for those overseas, it's a cheesy U.S. TV show about pack rats who refuse to get rid of stuff).

Thanks,

Dasty

Hi Team
I am one of the stalwarts since beta, and remember fondly(?) the server queues and a time before Cartel Market, when you were always broke, and sprint was level 15 or something. So I was wondering what, as magicians, you were going to pull out of the hat. I think I'd probably sum up the RoadMap as a good effort on the limited resources you have available. I also think the Team should be applauded for better communications. However, and I suspect this will chime with many, I think what the SWTOR community is after is a better feeling of how EA (and to a lesser extent BW) intend to see the platform develop. Its coming up to 6 years, so you sort of feel there's a decision point coming: invest in updating game engine, release a large content package, bring back (or attract) players for another number of years. Or simply keep dribbling stuff out with a small team. You may argue by declaring your hand for the latter, you'll spark an exodus. I'd argue that by not doing the investment, you're bringing the "decline" into focus anyway. What I can't understand though is the IPR for Star Wars is big business; we're getting a new movie every year; the community love the universe - surely some targeted investment, to coincide with releases, is a winner for everyone? Sure, there'll be some risk on the margin for EA, but 50% of something is better than 100% of nothing? I hope this helps your discussions with the executives. B

Awesome! Will the cap for guild strongholds also be increased? It would be nice if we could have at least a second guild stronghold if not a couple more.

I would gladly pay for an expansion such as RotHC/SoR was. Those had planets/Ops/Flashpoints/stories/companions at least commented sometimes/dailies/reputation. Those were the days. When stuff for everyone was included. Not the pendulum swinging all the way to one group or all the way to another.
Return the rest of our original companions through story!
I miss Doc.

EA probably think everyone will go out and buy Battlefront (or subsequent versions). Just on that basis alone and how they don't give BioWare enough resources to truly polish SWTOR makes me not inclined to purchase any EA title. They haven't changed a bit.

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

How do you even know what Chiss style/architecture is? They are barely even canon.
