honestly what are you trying to say here, that he should lie about what class he plays to make you feel better? He is saying his favorite class, no politics behind it
even though i'm a republic player I agree with you I would've said the same exact thing
Why do I always feel like the Trooper isn't loved. What's not to like about awesome armor (besides the BH armor) and massive assault cannons?

Mr Hinkle,

With all due respect it's not really my job to collect data and tell you how to balance your game in the same way that it's not my job to tell a restaurant how to cook and serve their food.

On the contrary, I just stop eating there.

What is implied there in the interview? That we have the data and BW does not? This is hilarious. The (should) have simulation models to test any class. I really do not imagine that they are not familiar with the fact that smash causes 7k damage to >3 players with EWH gear.

What is implied in the interview with the statement that customers ought to provide combat logs when discussing their dissatisfaction with class balance is the notion that BW fails to acknowledge any complaint as anything more than the emotional rantings of a sore loser unless they go to extensive efforts to collect and post data that, as you've said, BW already has.

The implication, therefore, is that class balance is fine and the vast majority of players who all agree that classes such as the mercenary/ commando are under performing don't know what we're talking about.

And to return to my restaurant analogy, I may not know how to cook great barbeque, but I sure as hell know what it tastes like. Right now, class balance in SWToR ain't great barbeque.

Too bad this is strictly a one-way discussion.
So much for Mr. Hinkle responding to additional questions ...

I think the lack of communication from Bioware, especially when answering people's questions just goes to show how frustrating this game is and why SWTOR has gone from literally 50+ servers down to only a handful. People won't keep playing a game when they feel the concerns they bring up are being ignored. Granted I understand that plenty of posts are just emotional outbursts by upset players. However I have seen plenty of constructive/insightful posts that go ignored by the BW staff.

This thread was created a week ago and honestly doesn't have that many posts, and several legitimate questions/posts and no BW staff has taken even 30min to answer even one.

They will need to get back to us i think. Or a lot of people will not play the game then.
I am looking for people who need more help in the forums and i will be there to help you make it better ok.
