Well, I'd rather they did a space expansion >right< instead of this pvp-only thing, but at least i won't have to pay for it.
Probably because they know they couldn't sell it to enough folks, and it would just split up the player base otherwise...

But I also believe that this horse has been flogged to death so hard all is left is just a smear on the pavement.

They make a space combat minigame. It seems it wasn't what many players wanted.
They make another space combat minigame. It seems it's also what many players didn't want,
but probably not all the same players that didn't want the first space combat minigame.
At any rate, BiowarEA seems to have their finger on the pulse of the playerbase,
and they're pressing harder and harder, until they stop the blood flow.

Most people would prefer it over not having it but that isn't the choice the company is making they've said its low down on their wall of crazy which implies that they see people would rather have it than not but that they see lots of other things they could add to the game instead. For me I'd prefer they added more ground content like skirmishes, PvE team vs team races and some 24man single encounters.

Nah, a few of us have him pegged. Others can disagree, but don't be fooled. I contributed to this thread just to point it out for those that may not see it. Look at his history on this issue alone. You will see what I mean. Look at his announcement about the BW/MMORPG Q and A. Funny... how that Q and A announcement did not come from Eric or Courtney. And maybe it will, but not before Nagus stole the show.

Sorry Nagus. You are the Emperor and you are wearing no clothes.
This post, and the one it was in reply to (Arkerus), are both pretty insightful. Thank you for expressing exactly what I've been thinking.

These whiny Nagus threads have gone way past simply "tiresome" and are definitely bordering on "trolling". Enough is enough; we get it. I realize that merely replying adds fuel to the fire; I just wanted to voice yet another anti-Nagus-space-pve-thread opinion.

That is why I play on a pve server.
My statement was conditional. I said that *IF* you want to play the new free flight space system, then you will be forced to PvP. You have no other option that lets you play free flight space without PvPing.

Bioware is a professional game company. Do you really think they would force people to PvP to if they want to play free flight space if they didnt know it was a good business decision?

There are technical issues, which the Devs have shared with the forums, sadly some people don't believe them.

This ^ I want PvE in the new space game, but since it isn't here now I'll wait. We all know(or at least reasonable people know) that they will add PvE in the future. Nonetheless the focus of this game should always be on the ground game first. That is what will keep people playing. Galactic Starfighter is just another one of many features that augment the main game.

BUT they could add 100 sectors to roam around freely
BUT they could add mining asteroids
BUT they could add stations to land on seamlessly in space
BUT they could add trading, and cargo transporting, and guild ships
BUT they could add player driven economy and even territory warfare
BUT they could add something like the Death Star with one side playing Republic and the other side playing Imperial
and recreate the Death Star Attack

nothing of that requires NPC AI or letting more players than 24 into a single instance

Oh, I completely believe them. They didnt say it wasnt possible, they said it would be hard. And we all know it isnt fun to do hard things, so why bother? People have have only waited 2 years for a free flight space system with PvE and PvP, so rather than make that a priority they should keep making more ground operations and stuff. If people want to do free flight, just force them to PvP. Problem solved
