Rocket science it ain't.

Honestly I thought the swtor community would be different then the wow community but this person proves me wrong.

It was a simple and valid suggestion that for some of us would make it easier to come back to the game.

Why are you ignoring the guy who mentioned following them on facebook or twitter?

I am willing to bet they will certainly email recent unsubs any major announcement about the game. Hell, they have companions 'email' you when have not been in game for a period of time.

Even if they don't, is it really that hard to check the home page once in while?

Honestly, people will whine about anything and everything.

The same people wanting to be notified by email are the same people that will complain that they are getting spammed by Bioware to come back to the game.

When I leave an MMO. I check back from time to time and see what's new and different. If it interests me, I resub. If not, then I don't.

Stop trying to blame the community. The response was a valid one. You really want BioWare to spend time and money to come up with new stuff to make you happy then want them to spend even more time and money to create an email and then send it out to everyone? Is it really too much to ask people these days to find some information for themselves?

If you want to play the game when things are more to your liking, then find out if things have been changed to your liking. No one needs to come and tap you on the shoulder. Besides, there will hundreds of blogs and other sites that will have the information. As someone said, a simple search will provide you with the info that you need when you want to look for it.

So, be an adult and put it up in the suggestion forum, you know...where Bioware actually checks for suggestions and even implements some of them.

The very least I would expect is getting a holocall from my ship droid when there is a new update. BW, give me an iPhone app please!

'cause I'm used to letting droids do the work for me.

You cleary dont understand the OPs intent.

He needs to post it in general , to invite the inevitable criticism that he will of course respond to.

It was a decent suggestion. But the SWTOR twitter feed is spam city, there's about 20-30 messages a day, most of them just customer serve replies to other tweets. (it's all chaff, no wheat!) I don't use FB
