Of course an update came barely a day after I decide not to resubscribe...
I still feel kind of strung along, mind; I have to wonder how long ago they decided to delay this with companions and why they sat on that information for so long, if nothing else it would've been nice to know two characters ago.
So I probably still won't re-sub; since my ops guild fizzled out I've basically just been re-rolling for the stories, and since this kind of poops on characters I wanted to make (and have already made) I guess it's as good a time as any for a break. I'll keep following and see what happens with companions in future, or if reviews of Makeb are just that good
maybe I'll try and get back into ops after it launches... Call me fickle
