still no plans for the ailing APAC servers Jeff ?

Our current plan is to wait for Free-to-Play to launch and see what the influx of new players does to the populations of these servers. We will give it a little time and if we do not see significant improvement, then we will move ahead with the solution that offers the best playing experience for the Oceanic community.

Each time I see a new update, I do not see many fixed bugs in the list.

And that bugs me (pun intended ).

Edit : What does SGR mean ?
SGR is Same Gender Romances.

good for you, that you are making money. so maybe we can get back to the part where subscribers won't notice the change and quit the pay to win thing already. also please stop deliberately making things worse than they were before just to enforce cartel market purchases (example: you made the gunslinger sounds suck and the only solution was a blaster that is exclusive to cartel packs, that is a no-go .... really)

other than that, yeah now that you are finally making money, maybe now you can get back to making the game attractive instead of working on making it profitable.

ps always remember: the critic is a friend who reminds you of your mistakes.
Just because you're not paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

Wanted to entirely bash this state of the game for another round of "hey let me tease you with non-answers",
and I was screaming at my monitor at "sorry for being cryptic, but this is technically not announced yet".
WHY NOT USE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ANNOUNCE IT?! That would've made the entire thing worthwhile for the PvPers.
They need love too, you know?

At any rate, thanks for clarifying about the SGR bit in Makeb. Not quite what the folks hoped for, but it's a step in the right direction.
Now frickin' start sprinting. You have a lot of ground to catch up on. Seriously.

We will be experimenting with a different approach to Open World PvP, something that encourages organic PvP in contested areas in a new and interesting way, but do not look for massive new Open World PvP this year (outside of what I mentioned above). It is still on our design wall, but is taking a back seat to other forms of PvP.
A different approach?! PvPers can tell you what they'd like Jeff...there's really no need to guess or try anything different...

I'll remain hopeful about the mystery area (Ilum), but...I guess I'm not really pleased that you're committing nothing more to PvP for a full year other than one attempt at Ilum that is so secret that it makes Area 51 look like a public library. This is a major gameplay TYPE, and to write it off for a full year again scares me. I assume "other forms" simply means more WZ's?!

I like the fact that you guys are working on a system that encourages organic open world PVP but sad its not this year.
But we have needed something like this since launch, I really think you guys need to reconsider this.

If this system was in place the PVP community wouldn't need new OPS and Warzones every few months because we would all be to busy PVPing our faces off on all the planets that have already been created. Honestly all you would have to do is offer some type of reward for Open World PVP. I personally don't need a reward but there are many players out there that don't do Open World PVP since launch cause there is no incentive to do so.

PS Mr Hickman, we all know about the Ilum live event in Jan, we were told long ago and we have a good memory!

Its still coming in Jan right?

Finally, after 2 weeks of hardly a dev post, Hickman posts. Would've enjoy a teaser trailer or SS's to go with the things you mentioned you're working on. Nonetheless, thanks for scratching my itch for DEV posts.
Peace is a lie... and so is your Order.
