Right, so sometime in 2015 then..

Yeah. I would immediately lose interest in the game and just not bother. All you have to do is play some alts through the planet story quests to get a good idea of what they mean by "Avengers style". And I'm sorry, that's just not good enough. If there were other things about the game that made it worth playing, then yeah maybe. But as it stands, the class stories are it (at least for me). If I want good MMO mechanics, I go elsewhere, to companies that quite frankly do it better. No one does class stories better than BioWare, they shouldn't lose focus on their strengths in an attempt to shore up their weaknesses.

I don't pretend to know how much SWTOR cost or how much of that budget was eaten up in the voice overs and writing (I suspect not nearly as much as most people assume). All I know is that's my line in the sand, and BioWare needs to be honest about it if that's not something they're going to continue to support.

Confirmed for 2012. Read more, assume less.

I will buy you a corellian ale if the gap increase comes before the year is over. Regardless what they "confirm".

i have to agree i would hate for them to abandon the unique class story's in favor of a all rounded style i mean wow does that and i ended up only bothering to lvl one character with this game i have lvl 6 to 50 simply because i have enjoyed the class story's so much and if they gave up on that i would walk away.
