What do the top two lines (the pink and the grey one) of the posted graph rapresent?
Is one used for the time spent in space combat missions and the other for the time spent on the personal starship?
Everything is STAR WARS is the best.

Read again. The chart doesn't say anything about the time spent before level 50.

It seems that the interview was done a while ago. He said his brew would be ready for consumption around Thanksgiving. I assume he works at the Austin studio, which would mean Thanksgiving was Thursday, last week. It's fun to read these things though. I wish serendipity would work out as well for me as it's done him.

You need to read the bit above the graph again. That chart was for level 50s only, and showed no data for planetary time spent levelling. The percentage of game time spent on planets that was shown in the graph was for time spent by 50s doing dailies/gathering/wandering aimlessly, and not for anyone levelling a new char.

I just want to mention I really enjoyed reading your article Mr. Crow! As a high school student about to enter college, I get excited when I read about using statistics, analyzation, and careers. Getting involved with SWTOR as both work and play is basically my dream job...your so lucky!

Sorry for the mistake - i updated it. It really makes no difference - if you visit the planets you'll see the numbers are still low. The merit of my arguement still stands - once you reach 50 = boring. More variety/possiblities in the various storylines makes the game interesting and repeatable.

I'm curious about post level 50 warzone participation, and pre level 50 participation. This is where the useless Expertise stat comes to play.

Hallmark? I wonder if he influenced the Smuggler story at all, sometimes the Smuggler jokes sound like familiar.

How about you actually share some class statistics. Oh maybe what's played the most? What class does the most dmg. Which class does the least dmg. ect... I'm sure we already know the answer to most of those, but I'd like to see the actual stats on it.

Hello. I have a question you say you watch trends and help the developers focus on areas of player interest do you spend much time on the forums, do you ever look at the suggestion page and if you do what do you think the top 5 places of improvement are for the forum going crowd?
