So if this had been in the game at the start (as it was supposed to be), would a lot of people railing against it have never played at all? Apparently you like the game or wouldn't be subscribed? Would you really have passed on all that you like for something that detractors say is such a minor area of content?

And yet, there a great many players who see "playability" and "gameplay"in the RP aspect, with others or with just their character and their companions. Which means many of them, myself included, have characters that are seen as homosexual and would like to be able to romance another male or female. That enhances our play through. And is thus needed to have happy players.

You guys will be fine. You will have new flashpoints, most likely, and you don't have to choose [flirt] options to make your play through fulfilling.

I understand that most forum-goers do not like to read all of the posts in a multi-page thread (I am guilty of this as well) so I will repeat what has already been said and elaborate a little.

I have followed this game very closely since day 1. I am the 176th person to register at this site and have been very active here. We knew that SGRs were coming eventually as this was told to us LONG ago. What I do not agree with is that they were given precedence over other far more needed features that would have benefited far more people.

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not I think that they should be in the game. This thread is about what I believe to be is misplaced priorities by the devs.

That isn't necessarily true, though, in fact I don't believe it is at all. I don't believe the production team works that way. . Like I said before, there are a lot of different groups of people working on different aspects of the game. They have the warzone people, the operation people, the story and quest writers, the client software people, world design, outfit and creature design, the list goes on and on. They are all working concurrently. Makeb was as project started soon after launch that they wanted to bring out in order to give people more story, and of course story will include some romance, it's in the currently available story. . A lot of people who play this game really love and obsess over this aspect of the game. So in this big story content that they've been developing over the last year, they happened to make some romance options have same gender recognition. That is all.

It sounds to me like people think they brought the whole studio down to halt and spent a big chunk of development time "just on SGR content". That isn't what this is.

Whole lotta people talking who have no idea how game development works, sounds like.

It's not like they pulled the PvP or the bug fixing team and said "Oh you guys are now working on SGRs."

They just had the voice actor(s) record a few extra lines and spent a little bit of time on the cutscenes or what have you. Big whoop.

Me personally I would never have bought the game and played.

When and where was that EVER stated? Especially when you even admit that SGR's were told that they were GOING to be added. So, with that in mind, how in the world can you justify saying that something that has been in the works of being added SINCE the beginning had knocked over everything just to get added? Heck, if it was going to be added, why are you seemingly shocked and pissed that it is getting added?

Warzones are a different department and they've already stated that there will be new Warzones coming. And World Events are a 1 time Event, meaning once the WE is done it is done & over.

Until Makaeb comes out I will still play. Nice dig at my legacy name but thank you for your concern.
