Nope no mention sadly, and again I think this is one of those issues that is plagued by the current engine. Understand this has been the biggest issue in the game since launch, so I don't see any way they could fix it without ditching the Hero and moving to another engine, which is unlikely ever going to happen.

I would be terrified if they announced this. I would have to make a request that they let me back my characters up myself as well as their back up.

they could get it if they wanted.

lets look at SWG for a second. it lasted 8 years, and many would not consider it to have been a successful MMO after the CU and then NGE. yet i lasted for 8 years somehow.

lets say that SWTOR is gonna last 8 years. why not spend the money to improve your engine (which is arguably the worst thing about the game, and has the largest impact on all other game aspects), and then benefit in the long-term by attracting more customers over those 8 years?

its a long-term investment in the game. which, sadly, is something i dont think EA is interested in. if they were, they could surely get the money from Disney. the better this game is, the more people want to play it. and the more people that play it, the more money that all involved parties make off of it.

I think if they built the game on another engine, it would be called SWTOR 2 as everything would likely have to be thrown out. Should still have the voiceovers in WAV files at least I guess.

yeah thats what i was saying before, theyd have to remake the game basically. which isnt gonna happen. itd be a huge financial investment, and EA isnt into those kind of business ventures

i think that at this point, there is just too much involved with proper optimization that it would be just as costly/time consuming as starting over.

i mean, why else would stupid bugs like the ops chat bug still be around since launch, if not that the devs just couldnt fix it?
