Aw man, it looks like I missed the party. I spent so much time catching up on the threads I didn't get time to post.

EDIT: Looks like this thread got trimmed as well.

I just received an answer to my ticket that I opened three days ago, requesting info on implementation of SGRs. The answer I got is in german, but I'll try to translate to the best of my abilities.

Thank you very much for your request for more information regarding SGR implementation.

We are still very much engaged implementing extensive (sic!) SGR content into Star Wars: The Old Republic.

As Daniel Erickson said during the guild summit, our writers are already working on content for SGR, yet at this point we can't give you any definitive info on when they will be implemented. We would still like to let you know that this content will be implemented with a future update together with story content.

If you would like to engage in more discussion on this topic, you may join this thread in our forums [... he refers me to this thread here...]

Thanks for your interest in Bioware and this game, we appreciate all our fans and are proud to have such a tolerant and diverse community.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us again.

Regards,

Thoughts? I know it's not much, but so much better than nothing. And by referring to this thread here, it kind of gives me confidence that they do read here and know what we're up to, even if they're not posting much.

And the fact that it took them three days to answer my ticket makes me hopeful the CS rep didn't just copy and paste some old info but really researched for his answer and (hopefully) made sure the info he gave was correct.

What I'm getting from this is that what was said about SGRs during the Guild Summit is one of the things that is still true. I also like the "If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us again." I know we won't get our questions answered, but I think we should make use of that invitation.

I certainly have the same impression.

While this statement is a good sign, it does not suffice a dev actually making an official statement on the public record, preferably HallHood or other senior developer. The cat is very much out of the bag now. Keep the pressure up.

Seems like a definate yes to me, so we got an answer, the question now is whether or not to keep the pressure on BioWare.

I do appreciate it.

Like I said, it would be hilarious. It might suck on a personal level, but I'd have to respect the comedy, and frankly, I'd have to respect the balls.

Offensive is offensive, but funny is funny, and they tend to go together like peanut butter and chocolate.

IMO soft pressure can never be harmful.

We just need to make sure we're not drifting off into a hateful, deterrent corner, but that's just my personal opinion.

Yes, I agree. This is, of course, the best and only news concerning the subject we have heard for months; perhaps there is a light at the end of tunnel after all. While I am not a member of the LGBT community, I strongly support them concerning this issue.

I have several toons just waiting for the implementation of SGR. I am greatly looking forward to 'extensive SGR content'. I resubbed to collect on the cartel coins and plan to go FTP soon, but the implementation of SGR content will definitely sway me to re-subscribe.
