People will complain, regardless. Not exactly news here.

Please provide a proof of your statistics, else they can easily be mistaken as having been randomly rolled on a D100.

'Useless'.

Must be some new definition of the word.

And exactly how long should they wait for this content that was already promised almost a year ago? And please do not speak for me when you say 'EVERYBODY'. I am not gay, have no plans to play SGR content, and yet I also don't play FPs, WZs, and Raids. Every other single update to the game since launch has BEEN FPs, WZs, and Raids. Why the hell should /this/ content which appeals to /this/ group have to wait even longer than the folks who only play FPs, WZs, and Raids. EVERYONE gets a turn, not just certain people. It just so happens that it's FINALLY the SGRA turn. Deal with it. You'll still get the content you want anyway, so what's the big problem?

You /don't/ respect the community if you believe that these folks should have to /continue/ to wait after everyone else gets their preferred content updated MULTIPLE times. It's not fair, and it's about time it was addressed.

As I said, I'm in favor of SGR but let's see you guys complaining about "no hoods up/down BW? No new pets and toys? No new sets, just recolour? No bugs fixed? bla bla bla".

And seems it's just 2 people working on BW atm.

I don't know, making SGR Flirts available from only the "unsavoury" and criminal and alien portions of Makeb would probably be BW: Austin's bright-spark idea on how to make everyone "happy". LGB+allies get their [Flirt]s, trolls and detractors get the warm fuzzy feeling that we're not [Flirt]ing with "legitimate" individuals.

Ugh.

But since we've had the "Yay, you can [Flirt] now!" announcement, we aren't going to get any more information out of BW:Austin until they slap an escaped Belsavis prisoner on the Cash Shop and tell us that's our romance option.

(I see your cynicism and raise you.)

I noticed as a female sith warrior if I give courting gifts to Vette she receives points but not with Jaesa.

Please make Jaesa the lesbian choice EAware or both idc, but definitely Jaesa.

New flashpoints 98% of the players will enjoy that, 2% just pvp.

See, it's so much time spent for something useless compared to new FP, WZ and raids.

And how many FPs, WZ and assorted other things have been added since launch and how much SGR content have we gotten since the same time?

Why is the only argument being bandied around now "Ohh, they should have other priorities." How long do we have to wait to get something. Honestly? Give us a time frame for when we are allowed to receive content that was promised before launch and is only now starting to trickle in.
NO one said SGR content should be at the top of the priority list, but eventually you have to get to the bottom of the list

I hate flashpoints and warzones. I haven't been on a single raid since I started playing. So, guess what, NOT EVERYONE ENJOYS those things.

Your argument is hereby invalid.

People who are against SGR *are* intolerant. Maybe not against what they may assume, but in some way, yes.

Honestly, I think every single companion should be able to be romanced, no matter whether it is malavai or khem val or scorpio or blizz. Who is Anyone else to say who I can fall in love with.

Er. And what if Blizz, or Khem Val, or Scorpio doesn't fall in love with your character? You know, romancing them agaisnt they will is kinda bad I think that having companions who can't be romanced is quite good. This is life, you don't always get what you want. Not every person you like will feel the same way about you.

I agree, I don't want to see every companion as a potential love interest. Some should just be able to be friends/colleagues/reluctant allies.

Particularly some like Khem Val, I think are best left as loyal servant/friend types. Particularly Khem Val, he's like two feet taller than my SI, if things are in proportion, ow...

I just read the state of the game update, what great news from BioWare Adding this content to a game like SWTOR is a major victory. I don't mind at all that they take it slow, I'm quite happy with a few flirt lines with NPC's. Looking forward to Makeb!
