That would show complete disregard for me, a paying customer, who gives them such awesome development ideas for free when I really should be charging them.

Yes I want this game to continue for years to come. I wish they would do more for PvP BUT I understand this is a PvE game first and I still pay for a sub and don't see that changing.

Don't misread passion as dislike. Some people prefer to coddle Bioware and praise them for showing up to work, others, myself included, tend to be more insistent on what I feel needs to be a priority.

But overall...you're safe to assume we all want the game to be around for a long time.
I agree.

Personally I think the "rose colored glasses" people are doing the game a major disservice by glossing over flaws and bad decisions. Pretending there are no problems does absolutely nothing to improve what needs improving.

I hope the game succeeds and is around for a long time but if it doesn't... no biggee. I wish I was really into the game, but as it stands today, it's just a diversion to me. It's such a white bread game that I can't muster up any enthusiasm for it either way. It's too boring to like and too bland to hate.

I really hope that the underlying cause of this unhappiness is just because people want to see the game be around for a long time and succeed in the end. I'm not delusional in this thinking, am I? Everyone that's here right now and is able to post has paid for the game and has an active sub (trials aside). Please don't tell me people pay money just to see a game fail and go away forever.

People have been waiting for 12 month, talking about the potential of the game, filling the suggestion box with 22.000 threads, only with minor things getting into the game.

At a certain point people notice they are talking against a wall.

With F2P and the recent state of the game letter, hope has turned into frustration.
They either turn this ship into a new direction before they run into the cliffs, or someone else should pick up the IP and get to work asap.

No. There are plenty of people who have stated they want to see it fail. What they fail to realize is that real lives and jobs are at stake. I don't play Call of Duty but I don't want to see it "fail". I just don't spend my money on it. If a product isn't good enough to make it, I don't need to post on a message board to inflating my own bloated ego just to make it fail faster.

Testers don't design games. No one really cares about your suggestions.

If they don't know what is important to their customers, how do they know what they need to work on? My requests and comments may fall upon deaf ears, but I'm no worse off for voicing my opinions. I'd rather do what I can to tell Bioware what I feel they need to fix, than to sit silently and bitterly by as the game fails. This has NOTHING to do with ego.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

idk, they hit the essentials pretty well.

majority of requests over the past year that were hit:
-More servers (oops)
-Group finder
-Guild features
-Addons/UI costumizations
-Combat logs/Damage meters
-More Operations
-More Warzones
-Class balancing (especially with flaws between mirrored classes)
-Server transfers/Merges
-Character/companion customizations
-Many bug fixes

Things still missing:
-player housing
-Better space combat
-More Operations
-More story
-More planets
-Bug fixes (give me my damn codex entries!)
-More world PvP
-More WZ's
-Pazaack
