[PETITION] A request to know the exact details of 2.4, the "PVP patch"

This is a petition to request that Bioware give us the details of that patch, rather than simply teasing us with the promise of content as they have so harshly done for the past half year. Most of us stay loyal to this game because we enjoy the PVP, but many are leaving and will continue to leave until new features are implemented.

We need arenas. We need 4v4 content. We need a ranked season. We don't need a single new WZ.

Please Bioware, enlighten us and give PVPers a reason to stay subbed. Tell us what we can expect from 2.4 and please do not be purposefully vague. Stop taking for granted your PVP fanbase.

DISCLAIMER : Those that sign in this thread are not under the expectation that any details revealed will be guaranteed and set in stone. We understand the problems with over promising. However, what we need to know is what is in the works and what the expected outcome is.
We don't need Arena's not intill they fix the classes.... Coz I'm sure everyone is going to want to spend a hour in arenas 2v2 healer/tank... It won't be like wow.. If u want 2v2 Arena's play wow. That's what I do. There will be more qqing then ever once they bring in arenas... People realizing there not as good as they think they are, healers never dying etc etc.. So I hope they don't bring arenas in at all

C'mon people, you already know what 2.4 will contain. New pvp gear of grade 69 and 72, so you can grind once again. Assassins and snipers will be buffed. VG/PT Assault/Pyro will be nerfed. Those things are a foregone conclusion given the meta averages. The only significant question is whether the devs will nerf healing. Meta averages say yes. Devs desire to lengthen TTK says no. Hard to predict that one.

what have we seen for PvP content? 2 new warzones, and Ranked PvP. that is really it. Ranked was 1.3 (june). AHG was 1.6 (december). so that is 6 months with no PvP content update.

2.4 will likely be october. that is 10 months. do you suddenly think bioware is gonna pick up the pace with PvP content release? do you really think that whatever they release in 2.4 is going to hold you over for 6-12 months?

the devs are not competent. even the PvE patches are terrible and just recycle old content for the most part. this game is content starved, and the devs have no idea how to create content that we cannot complete in a months time. there is no big picture thinking on this dev team, and if there is its pushed down because "we dont have the tech" or "its on the wall of crazy".

its just sad thinking about how much potential this game had at launch, and how much it still has.
agreed, barring any pretty drastic changes of the pvp content pace/style, it becomes a game of "look elsewhere for what you want." too bad really, it is one of those things i saw going better (pvp w/ lightsabers! - how do you mess that up)

oh yeah, and a "digital expansion" with no pvp content? - how did that happen

also, we have seen that bioware is capable of seeing the breakdown of how players spend their time... are there really that many players that are doing dailies regularly - more-so than wz's?

As "soon" turned into several months after several other pve patches.... I would really like to know what's supposed to come with 2.4.

You know there have been other people in at least one other game which thought their player are going to LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUVE!!!! what they are coming up with.... you may have heard of it, maybe, it's called NGE.

Someone at Bioware also thought I'm going to love that christmas speeder or the axe.... I didn't so you have been warned.

They need to either give us some details or drop a butt load of pvp content in 2.4 (some thing more than 1 new WZ and gear) or I fear this games future.

Neither of these things are likely though imho

While I am sure they know exactly what is going to be in 2.4 (er /rubhands crap and what not), you wont see any details probably until a week before it goes live.

The reason why they don't tell anything is probably because it's nothing that big... If it would be something big that ppl probably would love it would be wise to say something about it to give us some hope and to stay subscribers

If it's nothing special they keep it silent so as many as possible will stay subscribers until the patch
