These items I could care less about but I don't have a problem with them being in the game but if it was up to me, no thank you.

As far as chat bubbles (and I am a roleplayer) I don't see the need for them. You don't need them to roleplay and when we had them in SWG they were more confusing than they were worth.

Different groups of people have different ideas what they like. What your guild may like mine may not. What each of us need to realize what we consider a majority is from our sphere of influence and doesn't reflect everyone. This fighting because you don't like something doesn't accomplish anything except to put people at odds in the forums and that is something we shouldn't be doing. All this fighting among ourselves is doing is creating drama and problems.

I am not a fan of Arcann but I know that they can do more than one thing and from my understanding the Arcann romance has already been recorded and the way they have done the romance on the companions it really isn't that big of deal since the way they have handled the rest I would bet they spent about 10 minutes on it, nothing significant.

Yeah I much rather receive story and planet content rather than some romances and I suspect many people feel the same way. That being said though, its hard for me to believe an alert with romance options (lets face it, it ain't gonna be anything more than that...note returning companions) in it would be in the way of an actual content if there is such planned.
I want to believe that the disaster 2017 was has taught the devs the lesson not to cater to vocal minorities.

We already know we are getting another flashpoint and ops boss soon. Is that not “real content”?

Saying you want a full expansion instead of the Arcann romance is pretty much akin to thinking if you dont get a skateboard for your birthday you could get a car instead.

IMHO this isn't going to be anything more than a two-minute cut scene, along the lines of what the returning companions/LIs have received. It's still time and money I would have wished to see spent elsewhere, and I'd rather uninstall the game than romance Arcann, but it's something easily ignored. If this turns out to be a full quest, while the others LIs got scraps, I will happily join you all in being angry.

The issue right now unfortunately is that there apparently are few resources and funds allocated for the game, and everyone's scrapping for what they want to see most. A lot of the recent content releases - the Ops bosses, the PvP maps, this - don't appeal to a lot of players. I don't think *anyone* is really happy with the level of content they're getting right now.

For me, I do want actual meaningful companion and LI cut scenes and stories, and would actually pay if they had LI modules you could buy to extend those stories, but the game can't run on that. In the vanilla game and KOTFE/KOTET the romances/character interactions were part of a much greater body of content.

I'm not going to uninstall the game, but from now on all my new characters will kill Arcann and ( regretfully) Senya. The OPS and the new PvP maps do not attract the players because of the mechanics and because of bots/cheaters/hackers, just look at the circus in the PvP section of this forum.

I do want too meaningful cutscenes and stories, for example i really liked the Aric Jorgan recruitment chapter, even my Imperial characters ( almost all of them LS) respect the Cathar.

I felt KOTxx was a raging trash fire... and content that revisits it is contrary to anything I want out of SWTOR at this point. Arcann could use some closure, though. I mean... we can't END KOTxx without writing an end to it... but, if we get an Arcann romance (NO THANK YOU) then, I also want the option to exile him forever (I mean, on the few characters who didn't just kill him (and, sadly, Senya too)).

...If Corso, Risha and Andronikos got less than 6 minutes of screen time total, Arcann doesn't deserve more than 90 seconds of my consideration.

There is a major scarcity of resources... why can't we have nice things?
...well, someone wasted those resources on Arcann. If there were take-backsies, this is one I'd call.

Oh, all of my characters already kill them both. I can't justify saving Arcann and asking my Alliance to work with him at all.

I will start packing to join you all...

Because it is a waste of resources for YOU. Not for ME. For me, a waste of resources - operations, and group content, because I do not participate in it. And for other people - a waste of resources lies in other nuances.
And I do not understand why one person's opinion should be for everyone?
I pay for this game and I have the right to the content that I like.

Okay I'm ignoring the "No Arcann" part, because it's already been confirmed. it's done and over with and that makes me happy.

What I will jump on the wagon and scream at the top of my lungs is MORE ACTUAL STORY CONTENT! Along with...

1. New Heroics! Please, please, please.

2. New Planets, Onderon and Duxn are on my dream list but Deralia would be perfection!

3. Good story arcs for ALL companions. Now that we have so many I want to KNOW them.

4. More Flashpoints.

5. Total SH decorating overhaul! REMOVE THE HOOK LIMIT NOW!

6. Class specific missions like in SOH please. If we can't have separate stories, give us stuff we're good at within the whole.

7. Crafting overhaul!

And finally MAKE OUR SPEICES MATTER!

Of course, you have the right to your opinion, but when the vocal minority you're part of gets what they requested and the rest of players are ignored it is no longer about opinions, subscription status, rights to certain content, it is more and more about common sense.

A bit off-topic: i'm in the city council and the last meeting was a complete nightmare, 30% wanted, demanded, screamed for articulated buses while 70% opposed to the idea do to pollution concerns. Fortunately, the extremely vocal minority did not won, because in real life 8 votes count more than 4 votes, only in games the lower percent of population requesting something can win.
